From the Patriots to the Buccaneers: See Tom Brady’s huge net worth
There are no “deflating” any facts when it comes to Tom Brady’s gargantuan net worth, which is simply as impressive as the quarterback’s illustrious career itself.
Tom Brady, the forty-three-year-old quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that’s still very weird to say has found a way to take his team to the NFC Championship game, set to take on Aaron Rodgers & the Greenbay Packers this weekend at Lambeau Field on a quest to reach his tenth Super Bowl.
Twenty-one seasons in the NFL and Tom Brady still isn’t done stacking wins as well as his cash. Speaking of, just how much money is Tom Brady worth? Let’s take a closer look at the career & net worth of Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr.
Tom Brady the “underdog”
Tom Brady was born on August 3rd, 1977, in San Mateo, California. Growing up a huge San Francisco 49ers fan, Tom Brady would go on to attend the University of Michigan in 1995, where he would serve as the backup quarterback for his first two seasons. After his third season, Brady led the team to wins in both the Citrus Bowl & the Orange Bowl, posting a 20-5 record as a starter for the Wolverines.
Brady was selected by the New England Patriots in the 2000 NFL Draft with the 199th pick, a pick that would go on to haunt many NFL franchises for the decades to come.
Brady to New England
Brady started his rookie season as the fourth-string quarterback for the Patriots, playing behind the likes of starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe for his first season before Bledsoe’s injury woes piled up in the 2001 season. This is when Brady earned the starting role and eventually led the Patriots to win the 2001 Super Bowl. This made Brady the youngest quarterback to ever win the title at twenty-four years old.
From that point on, Tom Brady cemented his legacy as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, going on to win three league MVP’s, six Super Bowl rings, and four Super Bowl MVPs, including the 2017 Super Bowl which saw Brady mount a twenty-five point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons.
Tom Brady, after a twenty-year-long career with New England, opted to go his separate ways after much-speculated tension between him & head coach Bill Belichick. On March 20th, 2020, Tom Brady made it official that he was signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, continuing on with his goal of playing in the NFL till he was forty-five-years-old, making his purse a whole lot heavier in the process.
In his first season with Tampa Bay, Tom Brady has led the team to a record of 11-5, breaking multiple records in his first year at “Tompa” Bay, including the single-season touchdown passing record with forty TD’s. Although, it does help when you have targets like Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, and Chris Godwin, as well as familiar teammate & loveable goofball Rob Gronkowski.
In just his first season, Brady has already found himself in familiar territory, albeit in a new conference, as he and the Bucs are set to face the Greenbay Packers on Sunday in a battle to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
Tom Brady net worth
It is estimated that Tom “the G.O.A.T.” Brady has a net worth of $200 million, which is impressive given Brady’s history of reworking his own contract below his deserved earnings in order to help New England afford complementary pieces to fit around him.
However, even with a current salary of $30 million dollars, we must also remember that Tom Brady also makes roughly $6 million in endorsements, having contracts with UGG, Under Armour, Tag Heuer, Shields, Intel, and others.
Equally, Tom Brady also just so happens to be married to Brazillian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who has a net worth of $400 million.
