From the article:

Amazingly, according to the source, the deal is for an eye-poppingly conservative $27 million, which is less than half his worth by any measure.


Which means one of two things:
  • Must be nice not being the chief bread-winner when you're one of the top 3 QB's of the past decade. (most likely why he's willing to accept less)
  • He knows he'll be exposed as a fraud/cheater/product of the system if/when he goes and fails elsewhere. (what I'm going with)

#2 all the way

Inexplicably low $ for the often-perceived "best of all-time".

Read Spygate....whole chapter on Brady's low $

Most likely, though, not either of 1 or 2.

Probably (as stated in the article) wants to keep his team competitive and makes mad cash  with endorsements.

This kind of makes it hard to hate the guy. I hate him for that.

What agent would let someone with his profile (once in a blue moon client) go for less money to be a team player and rely on endorsements????  He has not made elite QB money at all in his career.....that is not because he's a team guy, it's because he's a system guy.  Once they proved the system with Cassell, Brady had no leg to stand on if he were to ever try and hold the Pats up for more $$$.

Manning is a better QB, but still, I am surprised by the low numbers. Plenty of time for renegotiations over the years though.

  3.  He is being paid an additional $10mil a year from an "unrelated" company in the guise of a sponsorship deal.  (The Patriots would never cheat like that though.....would they?)

Sweet Jesus. That's so evil, it's probably true.

If he holds out and demands fair market value he is selfish, if he takes less money to help the team he is a system QB afraid to be exposed.

Not that I think this is the case.....but....does anybody know what sort of measures the League has in place to detect and enforce against this sort of salary cap cheating?

The Australian Football League has very strong measures in place to detect this sort of thing.....as 10-15(?) years ago it was quite rampant in the League.
Teams are still regularly getting caught cheating on the cap.....even with the constant scrutiny.

Very smart move by Brady. Restructuring to peanuts (for him) sets him up to receive alimony from his wife, should they divorce post football. She makes more in 6 weeks than he does in a year. Millions a year in alimony plus a house with a moat. Priceless.

I just find it amazing after watching Brady pound the Bills for years some posters still cling to the fantasy he's a fraud.
So he took less then he could have gotten elsewhere. I don't suppose that he has made a ton  of  money already, his wife makes something like 100 mill a year and he just wishes to stay in NE could POSSABLY be the reason?

I can't imagine the NFLPA is too happy about this. The deal does nothing but devalue the franchise tag for QBs.

I imagine they have let their displeasure be known. Flacco must be thrilled!
