Patriots quarterback Tom Brady earned a base salary of $5 million in 2009. In 2010, he’ll earn a base salary of $3.5 million. That’s a total salary in two years of $8.5 million.
For the one-year period from June 2009 through June 2010, his wife’s estimated earnings nearly triple the two-year total.
According to Forbes, Gisele Bundchen made $25 million in only one year.
Brady’s salary number doesn’t include off-field earnings or any bonuses or incentives. Still, his wife made $25 million in only a year.
Here’s hoping she made him sign a prenup.
