Report: Tom Brady earns $ 41.075 million in 2021
Once again, Tom brady has been of service to his team. Again, he will nonetheless earn more money than he was previously supposed to earn.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, Brady is “owed” $ 41.075 million in 2021, with the remaining $ 8.925 million coming in 2022. That’s a grand total of $ 50 million over two years.
The short-term increase in liquidity is nevertheless accompanied by ceiling savings, via the use of cancellable years over which the 2021 signing bonuses will be spread. According to Pelissero, Brady’s maximum count will be $ 9.075 million, which is $ 19.3 million less than it would have been.
Obviously, this contract was much more complex than a so-called “simple restructuring” that would have minimized Brady’s pay by $ 25 million in 2021 and converted the balance into a signing bonus. It sort of gets more while generating over $ 19 million in cap space.
We are working to get all the details and full explanation on this one. Here’s a nugget we’ve managed to find so far: Of the $ 41.075 million Brady will earn in 2021, $ 15 million will actually be paid out in 2022.
This automatically undermines the impression that he will pocket more than $ 41 million in 2021. Even if he did, and even if that amount exceeds Dak prescottAs the annual average of his new four-year contract, it’s important to remember that Prescott will definitely be paid $ 75 million before the end of the 2021 season.
Finally, it’s hard to imagine Brady not signing another new contract in 2022, if he does indeed stay for a third season. Considering how much money the Bucs will make with Brady on the roster, the team won’t be rushing to give him even more – especially when he’s consistently well below the maximum quarterbacks earn.
