Tom Brady gets a nice Friday paycheck

For many of us, Friday is payday. For one of us in particular, the most recent Friday included a significant paycheck.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got $14 million, the second installment of a $28 million signing bonus earned last year as part of his latest contract extension.

Brady’s salary for 2017 is a paltry $1 million, but bonus payments put his cap number at $14 million.

In 2018, Brady has a salary of $14 million and a cap number of $22 million. He can make another $1 million in per-game roster bonuses. For 2019, the same terms apply.

Brady still remains underpaid, but at his own volition. He consistently has taken less than he could get, if he wanted to push it as aggressively as he could. Instead, Brady has left millions on the table in order to ensure that the Patriots will have the cash and cap space to put a quality team around him.

Five Super Bowl rings and a legacy that has him regarded as the best quarterback of all time would suggest that he made the right decision. It remains to be seen whether any other franchise quarterback ever makes that same gamble, and if so whether it pays off.

    Not a Pat fan, tired of watching them in the SB, but Brady is one heck of a leader.

    I think Brady is great and among the greatest.

    The patriots will regarded as one of the great sports franchises of all time*.

    But, the fact remains that the vast majority of patsy fans are total and complete delta bravos.

    Carry on.

    Go RAIDERS

  18. bullcharger says: Apr 1, 2017 3:28 PM

    He didn’t leave millions on the table to win Super Bowls. His off the field income is 1000 x what it would be without the wins. He traded millions to get 10s of millions.

  19. bullcharger says: Apr 1, 2017 3:31 PM

    14 mil is 300k a year from the time someone is 20 years old until they are 65.

    He may be underpaid, but for a one time payment that isn’t too bad.

    This hard-core Bronco fan would like to say that Brady and the Pats suck, but that would be as ridiculous as saying Hillary Clinton lost the election because of the Russians.

    The facts are, it’s been enjoyable to watch a pro like Brady set records that will outlive most of us, and Hillary was so crooked that nearly anybody could have beaten her.

    “It remains to be seen whether any other franchise quarterback ever makes that same gamble, and if so whether it pays off.”

    It hasn’t been much of a gamble at all. It’s called trust. Brady may have taken less than he can get but in terms of career earnings he has made more than anyone whose last name isn’t Manning. He continually gets brought up in comparison to Brees with the inference that Brees is greedy but it’s really an invalid argument. Brady has only been in the league one year longer than Brees, his $231k rookie year, but has $15M more in career earnings. While Brady does play for less than he could demand considering all he has accomplished he has still been paid more than Brees who could also have demanded and gotten more. The truth is Brady gets his money up front and has never played the last year of a contract. Make no mistake, Brady gets his. The real difference is in the extraordinary level of trust between Brady and NE that works to their mutual advantage when it comes to making his deals cap friendly but Brady has not played for less than Brees. When it comes to comparing Brees and Brady’s earnings the truth is actually a lot more interesting than the commonly held misconception. Not that you could probably find another owner, GM and superstar QB that would practice it but trust actually pays, imagine that.

    It’s kinda easy to leave behind millions when your spouse makes eight figures as well.

  24. captainwisdom8888 says: Apr 1, 2017 3:45 PM

    Tom Brady’s overall aptitude for this game, whether it be on the field, on the sideline, in the offseason, at the negotiation table, etc…is light years ahead of any QB who has ever come before him. His competitiveness, his clutch factor when the game is on the line, and his propensity for uplifting the level of play of everyone around him(offense, defense, and special teams), it leaves you wondering how he could possibly be any better at what he does.

    The only way I could envision Tom Brady being ANY more dangerous than he currently is, would be if he happened to have wheels like Mike Vick or Cam Newton, but clearly he doesn’t even remotely need such ability to change the fact that he is the very best player that has EVER played the game of football. He gets his numbers, like all the greats do, but the hallmark of Tom Brady that makes the biggest difference at the end of the day is the simple fact that his presence and leadership has an indescribable way of bringing the utmost potential and ability out of every last man wearing a Patriots uniform.

    Singular players like Tom Brady don’t win Super Bowls, TEAMS win super bowls, and no player in the history of the game has ever had a more profound effect on the entirety of his team than Brady. This is an undebatable FACT.

    I Hate/Love this guy. He is Captain America in cleats. I hope he stay’s healthy because he brings a tremendous amount of passion to every game and he has this big smile on his face as he rips my teams freakin’ heart out and shows it to them.

    _____________________

    Some serious cherry picking there but you shouldn’t have bothered when the truth is even better. The bonus this article is about was part of last year’s compensation. Brady made $174k in playoff money, the same as the other players on his team and that was paid by the league. Brady’s cash compensation from New England for the 2016 season came in at $28M against a cap hit of $13,764,706. Nobody handles the cap better than New England, they are playing grand master level chess while the rest are playing patty cake. And that is why Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft are the best there is at what they collectively do.

  33. whatjusthapped says: Apr 1, 2017 4:23 PM

    I still don’t get it, if Brady is so great, why cheat?

  34. tonebones says: Apr 1, 2017 4:32 PM

    Considering how much the Patriots’ franchise has increased in value thanks to Brady, I’d say that’s easily the best investment Robert Kraft has ever made.

  35. patfanken says: Apr 1, 2017 4:32 PM

    One of the great myths about Brady over the years is that he “plays for less”. That simply isn’t the truth. Brady has never been THE best paid QB in the league, but certainly in the top 5.

    What he has done differently was to remain completely flexible and creative in his contracts so that there was always enough cap room to provide the needed pieces around him for him to succeed.

    Brady understood early on the basic truism that makes us all love the game of football. It is the ULTIMATE team game. What sets the Pats apart isn’t how talented their top 22 are, but how strong their bottom 31 is. Outside of Brady an Gronk (when he’s on the field) there were no real stars on the Pats.

    The Pats just had one first round pick on an offense that put up the most yards in any superbowl game, and he was an OT. Three of their RB’s were UDFA’s (Lewis, LGB, and Devlin). Their highest picked WR was in the 4th round and he was a rookie (Mitchell). 2 were UDFA’s and a 3rd (Edelman) was a 7th rounder

    So whenever teams want to compare starters man for man, the Pats rarely have the most talented roster. But they generally have the best TEAM. And Tom Brady’s attitude allows the team to have the best paid middle class in the league

  36. orndorf2 says: Apr 1, 2017 4:35 PM

    Yawn….at some point money can only buy so much. Tom figured he already had enough jack for that…he plays for fun.

    ————————————————————-

    Great point!
    The fact that Brady doesn’t need to cheat is one of the many reasons why intelligent people know that Brady didn’t cheat.

    The fact that science shows that he didn’t cheat is another reason. Unfortunately, it requires an 8th grade education level to understand the science which shows that the footballs lost PSI due to cold weather and rain. Many people can’t understand 7th grade science concepts, which is why many silly fools still believe that Brady cheated. Those foolish people who still believe that Brady cheated are necessary to fill the left side of the Bell Curve.

    Even those with a limited understanding of science should be able to figure out that nobody deflated footballs while watching a video where footballs can be seen dropping PSI just from being put into a refrigerator. Anyone can see the video online for free. Just search the popular online video site for the following title: “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

    And you’d be wrong. As even the most casual Pats fan could tell you, when it comes to the team his purchase of Foxboro Stadium was easily his best investment. Without it he would never have owned the team and it would have been moved to St Louis.

    Does some dimwit actually consider losing before you get to the superbowl to be a better accomplishment than getting to a superbow and then losing?

    Maybe some of the coaches in the league not named “Belichick” share that same dimwitted philosophy. That could explain why some teams haven’t sniffed a superbowl in many years.

    Soooo, because Montana failed to reach either the SB or CG in ANY of his other seasons, in the era before FA (so great teams could stay together), somehow makes him better than a guy who, in 17 seasons got to 11 CGs and 7 SBs, winning 5 of them? Grow up you crybaby! All the 4/4 really tells us is there was a disparity between the NFC and AFC in that period. And don’t even try the “cheat” claims – even if you still (irrationally) believe deflategate was real, it doesn’t come near Headsetgate, silicon-sprayed jerseys and sticky Rice.

    “Brady might be the greatest player of all time but he is an idiot when it comes to finances.”

    Brady’s made over 100 million in salary and millions more in endorsements. His wife makes 50 million a year. Collectively they are worth almost half a billion dollars.

    But yeah, he’s the idiot about finances but someone typing on PFT knows better.

    He has an easier decision to make regarding money than other players do since his wife is a self made multimillionaire herself.
    _______________

    OK so he has made about 200 million in salary over his career. But the only reason he’s able to take less is because his wife is also super wealthy.
    The 200 million is a number he’s happy with ONLY cuz his wife is loaded. He’d be screwed otherwise, is that what we’re saying here?

    I would argue that $200 million, not including endorsements, should be enough where he can afford to not squeeze every nickel out that he can in order to give his team a better chance to win.

    Other ridiculously loaded quarterbacks could do the same thing. He has a quarter of $1 billion before his wife even comes in the picture. Just stop with the nonsense.

    Tom Brady’s cap number is $14 million. that’s almost like a joke….less than Osweiler. I guess when you are a leader you don’t need the gratitude of making the most money.

    OK so he has made about 200 million in salary over his career. But the only reason he’s able to take less is because his wife is also super wealthy.

    He didn’t start hooking up w/Gisele until 07. He was team friendly before he met her. THere are also many who would take every dime they could regardless of what they already have.

    Goes without saying Tom Brady has done all right for himself…multiple SB winning QB, millions of dollars, mega-famous and a knockout of a wife.

    Just too bad his brothers Greg, Peter and Bobby were never that successful.

    I get so fired up when he screams “lets go” to those of us in section 119, we scream it back!

    Can’t help thinking that “Section 119” is the name of a discount retail store located some place in Florida that sells random merchandise after purchasing them as lots.

    Also guessing that Section 119 sometimes has some fancy low end flat screen televisions on display and residents from the local trailer parks can be found gathering in Section 119 to watch football games.

    I would not have a problem with him being up there with the best but to call him the goat is ridiculous. He knows which side his bread is buttered so he will always play for less. What’s he going to do sign with a team without BB because of an extra few million. I understand the Patriot fans worship the ground he walks on but it takes someone other than Patriot fans to tell us he’s the best ever. And I hate to bring this up but he does have the small matter of a cheating conviction clouding his legacy something Pats fans seem to have overlooked. Don’t recall the 49ers or JM being suspended. I am personally am willing to say he is one of the best and believe he has a place in the HoF despite these blots on his record.

    Pats fans do not worship Brady. Pats fans and fans of football respect Brady as a person and recognize his athletic accomplishments, which they know to be a direct result of Brady’s work ethic and commitment to excellence.

    Pats fans and fans of the other 31 teams who are intelligent enough to understand 7th grade science concepts recognize deflategate as the farce that it was. The fact that science says that nobody deflated footballs should be enough to convince all but the most gullible dupes.

    Then add the fact that Roger Goodell still hasn’t released the PSI information which was collected during the 2015 season. Considering that the NFL has a history of issuing press releases within hours when it suits them, it appears that the NFL has decided to cover up facts which contradict deflategate.

    It’s 2017 and that PSI information was collected during the 2015 season. People with good memories remember Roger Goodell pledging transparency in 2014. Then Roger Goodell goes on to hide information almost immediately.

    From 1982 through 1997 (16 years) The NFC was 15-1 vs the AFC in the SB.

    That’s what Joe Montana went 4-0 against in the SB during his career. The Redskins won 3 SBs vs that AFC over those years, with three different QBs.
