After winning his first Super Bowl in 2002, every NFL fan was excited to know the salary of Tom Brady. He made a lot with the teams like the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Before diving into his net worth, let us first know about his National Football League history.
Tom Brady was the only son among four children belonging from San Mateo, California. He played football during his college life at the University of Michigan between 1995 and 1999. After graduating from college, the New England Patriots drafted him into the team, and he played for about 20 seasons as their star quarterback.
In March 2020, before the expiration of his contract with the Patriots, Brady announced one more piece of news. He was not resigning from the contract with the Boston-based team. He signed another contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and for the first time, he played at the Super Bowl in February 2021.
Throughout his football career, he won Super Bowl seven times. He owns the record of winning most Super Bowl in the 100-plus year history of the NFL. He is also the record-holder of completing most of the Super Bowls. He gained more than enough profit and multi-million-dollar salaries by working with the Patriots and Buccaneers. Here is everything we know about his salary and net worth.
Tom Brady’s Patriots Salary
Brady was selected as a quarterback for the New England Patriots team, and he played with the team from 2000 to 2020. According to some reports from NFL Network, Brady signed the contract of $70 million for playing two years with the Patriot team.
He was scheduled to gain $30 million in 2020 and $32 million in the next year. His salary was also raised in 2019 from $15 million to $23 million. Through this increment, he gained $8 million extra.
We have no idea about the total amount he gained by playing with the Patriots for 20 years. The reason for this idiopathy is also his new contract in March 2020. One insider from NFL also mentioned that the contract also said that the Patriots and Brady both were amendable to adjust the salary and contract when needed.
According to the approximation from the Insider, Brady might have earned $287.6 million through his 20 years football career. This approximation has been calculated after he resigned from the team. This amount is also $35 million more than the current record-holder named Eli Manning.
