He started his professional career with the New England Patriots and continues to play for the team until this day. The two-time MVP became the second quarterback, after John Elway, to lead his team to six Super bowl games of which he has won four so far. In September 2010, Tom Brady’s contract was set for $72.0 million through the course of four years, making him one of the highest paid athletes in the game. Tom Brady’s salary with the New England Patriots is $14.0 million annually with an extended contract up until 2017. But he has an overall salary of $26.0 million. The New England Patriots quarterback is considered one of the leading players in the NFL today.
Home Sweet Home
Brady and his wife, Bundchen, live in a $20.0 million mansion in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The luxurious mansion has several bathrooms and bedrooms, a home gym, high ceilings, a spacious living area, and a home theater complete with a lake-inspired pool for the family. The palatial home was built by architect Richard Landry and designed by Joan Behnke.
According to Forbes, Brady has made $7.0 million in endorsement deals in 2014 alone. He has also endorsed brands such as Uggs, Under Armor, Movado, Glaceau Smartwater, and was a model for Stetson cologne.
The 2015 American Football Conference (AFC) Championship game football tampering scandal, commonly called “Deflategate” (and with good reason) was a scandal in which Brady was accused of deflating the footballs for the game so the New England patriots could get a better grip when catching during the game. The scandal brought negative attention to Brady and the team, but Brady was the face of the infamous event. He has since been cleared of the charge and maintained his victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Gillette Stadium. However, Brady was suspended for four games for his part in the alleged scandal, and his suspension has recently been revoked. Brady gave a statement on his Facebook page regarding the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend him.
“I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension [sic] against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either … I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight.”
Many sports commentators believe that the judge’s ruling was firm but fair while others believe the punishment wasn’t severe enough.
Despite the scandal, Brady remains one of the best players in the NFL and continues to play at his best. Whether anyone likes it, the famous quarterback isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
