Tom Brady OK with pay, wife as breadwinner

Tom Brady OK with pay, wife as breadwinner

Tom Brady has made a habit of collecting Lombardi trophies and consistently rates as one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL into his 40s, but he is not paid at market value by today’s standard.Brady is the 18th highest-paid player at the position in annual average contract value at $15 million — less than half of what Russell Wilson (Seahawks), Aaron Rodgers (Packers) and Matt Ryan (Falcons) can take home on deals they’ve signed in the past 18 months.Still, the New England Patriots quarterback said in an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that he’s comfortable being the No. 2 earner in his own household.”That’s a good question. That’s usually, when I don’t want to answer a question, I always say, ‘That’s a good question,'” Brady said when asked why he isn’t the highest-paid player in football. “I think the thing I’ve always felt for me in my life, winning has been a priority. And my wife [model Gisele Bundchen] makes a lot of money.”I’m a little smarter than you think. Actually, it’s a salary cap. You can only spend so much and the more that one guy gets is less for others. And for a competitive advantage standpoint, I like to get a lot of good players around me.”Brady has no plans of cashing in his professional football chips, and stated again that he would like to play until he’s 45. Brady enters the 2018 season at the ripe age of 43, chasing a seventh Super Bowl title.
