When Tom Brady will really and finally stop playing football is still unknown, especially if his busy offseason in 2022 is any sign. But it’s not as hard to guess what Brady will do after he stops playing.
Brady just signed a big deal with Fox Sports to talk about the NFL after his career is over. It’s not a shock. There was no doubt that after Brady’s long and successful playing career was over, he would move on to a lucrative second job. The real question is if this will help him make more money than his wife, Gisele Bündchen.
Let’s look more closely at how much Brady stands to make from this deal and see if it will make him the “breadwinner” of his family.

Tom Brady was born in San Mateo, California on August 3, 1977, to a family of sports enthusiasts. He is the fourth child and only son of Galynn and Thomas Brady. His older sisters are named Nancy, Julie, and Maureen. His upbringing was Catholic. Growing up, he and his family attended San Francisco 49ers games. He was a Joe Montana enthusiast.
He was a lifelong supporter of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. As a child, he attended football camp at the College of San Mateo, where future NFL quarterback Tony Graziani taught him how to throw the football.
Net Worth of Tom Brady
Tom Brady is a quarterback for the American football team, spokesman, and entrepreneur. As of the time of writing, Tom Brady is worth $250 million. This is separate from his wife, the supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who has her own $400 million wealth.
Tom and Gisele have a combined net worth of $650 million. Brady has participated in a record nine Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and has won six of them, more than any NFL player. In the past decade, he has won a record-setting four Super Bowl MVP honors and three NFL MVP awards.
Tom left his longtime home with the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. His two-year contract with the Buccaneers is valued at $50 million and may include $9 million in incentive bonuses. Tom will have made more than $400 million in pay and endorsements by the time his contract expires.
Personal Life of Tom Brady
From 2004 until the end of 2006, Brady was with actress Bridget Moynahan. Moynahan told People magazine on February 18, 2007, that she was more than three months pregnant with Brady’s child. Brady and Moynahan broke up in early December 2006, around the time that Moynahan found out she was pregnant. In August 2007, John Edward Thomas Moynahan was born.
Brady began dating Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen in December 2006. On a blind date, a friend of both of them set them up. Brady and Bündchen got married in a small ceremony on February 26, 2009, at Santa Monica, California’s St. Monica Catholic Church. In April 2009, the couple got married again, but this time it was in Costa Rica. In 2009, they had a son, and in 2012, they had a daughter.
Career Life of Tom Brady
Brady is considered the greatest “steal” in the history of the NFL Draft due to his late selection. In his second season, he was named the team’s starting quarterback, and he remained with the Patriots for 20 years, an NFL record for most seasons as a quarterback for one franchise. He is one of just two quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl in his rookie season.
He is the quarterback with the most victories in NFL history, and he never had a losing season as the Patriots’ starting quarterback. He led the Patriots to the most division championships (16) of any quarterback in NFL history.
With a postseason record of 30–11, he leads all NFL players in playoff wins and appearances. Since 2011, Brady has guided the Patriots to a league-record eight consecutive AFC title games (and 13 overall). Additionally, Brady has been selected to 14 Pro Bowls, which is tied for the NFL record.
Tom Brady stated in March 2020 that he was leaving the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He apparently pays $70,000 per month to rent Derek Jeter’s opulent, custom-built beachfront property in Tampa.

The annual pay for Brady is $30 million. During his tenure with the Patriots from 2000 to 2019, Tom earned $230 million in pay alone. During the same time period, he earned an additional $100 million or so via endorsements. During the same time period, Gisele Bündchen earned close to $500 million in her career.
At the conclusion of his two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he will have earned at least $280 million in pay and $140 million in endorsements. Therefore, Tom Brady’s career earnings should surpass $420 million by the end of his career.

In May of 2014, Dr. Dre paid them $50 million for the property.
In 2018, Tom and Gisele purchased a New York City apartment on the 12th floor for $25.5 million. They sold this unit for $40 million in December 2020. The couple still owns a smaller apartment in the same building.
