Kickstarting a Prolific Career: The early days and breakthrough of Tom Brady

Tom Brady, born August 3, 1977, in sunny San Mateo, California, was always a sports junkie. Whether he was throwing a baseball or a football, young Tom was catching everyone’s eyes in high school with his athletic prowess. In fact, he was so good at baseball, the Montreal Expos picked him up in the 1995 Major League Baseball draft, but Tom turned the club down. He decided to hit the books and play ball at the University of Michigan instead.

Even though he didn’t start until late in his college career, Brady helped Michigan snatch a win at the 1999 Orange Bowl. He might not have been the beefiest guy on the field, but his grit, smarts, and hardcore work ethic definitely didn’t go unnoticed.

That’s why, at the 2000 NFL draft, Brady’s name got called in the sixth round by the New England Patriots. He started out playing second fiddle to another quarterback, Drew Bledsoe. But when Bledsoe went down with an injury early in the 2001 season, Brady seized his opportunity. His rock-solid performance and knack for keeping it clean on the field helped the Pats pull off a killer 11-3 run for the regular season. And, surprise, surprise, they even beat the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, earning Brady the MVP title.

The following years saw the Patriots morphing into an NFL powerhouse. With a 40-12 record over Brady’s first three seasons, including another Super Bowl victory in 2004 against the Carolina Panthers. By this point, Brady was racking up MVPs for fun. The Pats rode this wave throughout the next season, breaking the Miami Dolphins’ record 21 consecutive wins.

How Brady Bagged the Bucks from Football: Revenue from his main career

Tom Brady has been synonymous with pro football for over two decades, most notably with the New England Patriots. Given the success he has enjoyed with the team, it’s no surprise just how much he has earned. Through 2000 to 2019 (his years with the Pats), Brady collected $235.2 million.

Despite many believing his career to be over, Brady made the move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers around March 2020. The Bucs were thrilled to have him, and showed it with a nice two-year deal worth $50 million. The contract included a $9-million bonus if Brady delivered on the field, which he did, especially in the 2021 postseason. He scored a sweet $500,000 bonus just for reaching the playoffs, along with another $500,000 for each win over the Saints and Packers.

When Brady hinted retirement after the 2021-22 NFL season, he was on the hook for $16 million, which he would have had to pay back to the Bucs. In light of his decision to play for another season, it is assumed he kept that cash.

Brady finally decided to retire from all the NFL in 2022 and took a gig as the top NFL guy for Fox Sports. He signed a 10-year contract with Fox in May 2022, worth an astounding $37.5 million a year. So, despite leaving the field, Brady is still cashing in on football.

Wealth Beyond the Gridiron: Tom’s other revenues

Tom Brady is not just a stellar football player. He is financially astute, making smart money moves, scooping up some sweet business deals, investing like a pro, and cashing in on some awesome sponsorships.

Ever heard of TB12? That’s Brady’s brainchild. The brand promotes healthy living through a holistic approach to fitness and is based on Brady’s own adventures through sport. In 2020, Brady beefed up his business game further with his cool media production company, 199 Productions — a sweet tribute to his roots from his number in the 2000 NFL draft .

While Brady is no stranger to endorsements, they provide more than just money. They’re strategic moves to get his brand out there. According to Forbes, he’s the world’s ninth-highest-paid athlete, rocking it with big brands like Under Armour, Sam Adams, Foot Locker, and Tag Heuer.

Then there are the Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Brady got in on the game, co-founding a company called Autograph that recently raked in a cool $170 million.

In The Pocket: Tom Brady’s epic belongings and give-back game

Tom Brady’s not just clutching a nice chunk of change—he’s living in style. Everything from his collection of homes and cars to his VIP status at fancy resorts speak volumes about his life of luxury.

He broke into the real estate game with the sale of his swanky $4.125-million Boston condo for a cool million in profit. Next, he splashed out on a massive Beacon Street penthouse for $6.2 million in 2006, only to flip it for $9.27 million in 2012.

After marrying Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, Brady moved to Brentwood, California, where he and the missus would build an eco-friendly mansion for $11.75 million. They would sell it in 2014 for $40 million to Dr. Dre. Plus, they bought an epic $11.7-million condo in NYC, which they flipped after a few price drops.

On top of that, they nabbed a spot in the ultra-exclusive Yellowstone Club in Montana, the resort where a membership can start from $300,000. They then secured a $17-million property at the fancy Indian Creek Island (a.k.a. Billionaire Bunker) just outside Miami Beach in 2020.

Now about Brady’s wheels, he’s got a car collection worth $5 million. It features beauties like a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, a 2015 Ferrari M458-T, a unique TB12 Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante, and a 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost. When he’s not driving to get around, he’s flying. He’s got a private jet, the Gulfstream G550, worth $50 million, and not one, but two yachts, one costing him a nice, crisp $2 million.

Despite all the swanky stuff, Brady has his heart in the right place. He’s all about giving back with charity work like his TB12 Foundation aimed at empowering athletes. He’s joined forces with groups like KaBOOM! to build playgrounds, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make dreams come true for seriously ill children. Plus, he’s also jumped in charity golf events like Capital One’s The Match, helping to rack up over $60 million for different causes.

Off the Field: The personal life of Tom Brady

Tom Brady, born to Galynn Patricia and Thomas Edward Brady, may be living in a whirlwind of fame, but he’s not about shouting from the rooftops about his private life. This guy grew up far from the limelight in San Mateo, California, and has deep roots. His dad’s Irish, and from his mom’s side, he’s got Norwegian-Swedish and Polish heritage.

Brady’s love life, like that of most celebrities, has been one heck of a roller-coaster ride. He briefly dated Tara Reid in 2002. Then he had a serious relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan from 2004 to 2006. The breakup took a twist when she announced she was expecting… and Brady was the daddy. The little one, John “Jack” Edward Thomas, now lives with Bridget and her husband Andrew Frankel in the Big Apple .

Not too long after, in 2007, Brady got set up on a blind date and ended up falling for Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen. They tied the knot in 2009 and added two children, Benjamin Rein and Vivian Lake, to the picture. But the ‘happily-ever-after’ didn’t stick around forever. They announced their breakup in 2022, rounding off the year with official papers.

After the split, (false) rumors linking him with Reese Witherspoon and Kim Kardashian abounded. Those rumors dwindled and now, it appears Tom is all about his kids and his thriving gig as a sports analyst.

A Flag on the Play: Major events and controversies involving Tom Brady

So, you think Tom Brady’s life is all about touchdowns and trophy cases? Think again! Even the GOAT has had to duck some major faux-pas and courtroom dramas.

Deflategate (2014)

In 2014, Brady was in the middle of the wildest-ever NFL scandal. The Patriots were accused of illegally deflating game balls ahead of their AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots would handily beat the Colts 45-7 and would go on to win the Super Bowl title.

But they didn’t get to shrine the trophy without a hitch. The NFL investigated and pegged Brady as having more than just a ‘hands-off’ role in the deflation situation. The upshot? A four-game suspension for Brady, a million-dollar fine for the Patriots, and two lost draft picks. Brady’s reputation — and indeed, that of the league — took an indelible hit.

FTX Cryptocurrency Crash (2022)

In 2022, Brady was knee-deep in crypto. After holding a little over a million shares in FTX cryptocurrency, he got broadsided with losses somewhere to the tune of $40 million to $100 million when FTX nosedived and filed bankruptcy.

As if all that weren’t enough, Brady and other celebs who endorsed FTX are now in the crosshairs of the legal system. There’s talk he violated Florida securities and consumer protection laws by not dishing enough details on his FTX contract. This drama continues to unfold.
