Tom Brady is considered by many to be the greatest quarterback of all time, but how does number 12 measure up as a businessman? Brady is already one of the highest paid players in the National Football League (NFL), and off the gridiron he has some sizable endorsement deals.
According to Spotrac, Brady has earned just over $197 million in cash over his 18-year career in the NFL. Currently, Brady is set to earn $14 million for each of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, but even these numbers could be restructured.
Earlier in his career, Brady was more likely to endorse more affordable items like Dunkin’ Donuts, The Gap, Hershey’s and Wheaties. However, his more recent endorsements have tended to focus on high-end, luxury products.
Forbes has estimated that Brady earns $6 million for endorsements with Under Armour, UGG, Tag Heuer, Intel and Shields, among others. Brady also recently signed a deal with Aston Martin.
Brady runs his own lifestyle and health company called TB12. He operates a training center in Foxborough and has released two books related to this firm in conjunction with his personal trainer Alex Guerrero.
While Brady has done well for himself in terms of football and his business dealings, his wife Gisele Bündchen has done even better. She is worth roughly twice as much as her husband. Combined, this couple is worth just more than half a billion dollars.
