Tom Brady has only one true opponent: Father Time. He’s 43 years old – both Calvin Johnson and Peyton Manning entered the league, had legendary careers, and got inducted into the Hall of Fame within Brady’s career – and he’s still not done. Brady claims to play till he’s 45, but what’s next for him with the Buccaneers?
He signed a 2-year, $50,000,000 contract, with all that money guaranteed.
How much does Tom Brady make for winning Super Bowl?
However, the $25 million this year isn’t all he’s going to make. Brady is set to earn $1.125 million in incentives for the regular season, $4.25million for the Buccaneers’ performance in the playoffs ($500,000 for making the playoffs, $750,000 for making the divisional round, $1.25 million for making it to the NFC Championship, and $1.75 million for making it to the Super Bowl).
And now, after winning the Super Bowl, that’s another $500,000 for Tom Brady.
Adding all this up, Brady made around $31 million just this year.
In terms of what’s next for Brady, he stands to make $25 million guaranteed next season. With how the Bucs have been playing, another run for the playoffs is definitely on the table.
Will Tom Brady Return Next Season?
Brady will be 44 years old next season. How strong he stands by his ‘age of 45’ claim is yet to be seen. Will Brady retire with the Buccaneers? Will we see an extension? Will we see a trade to another team?
The only one who truly knows the answer to these questions is Brady himself. Time is no factor for the man, he has as long as he wants. And all we can do is stand back and watch in awe as this man continues to win, win big-time.
