Tom Brady gets four-year, $72 million deal, $48.5 million guaranteed
Posted by Michael David Smith on September 9, 2010 10:59 PM ET
The New England Patriots and Tom Brady agreed to a contract extension today, and now the numbers are out.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Brady's four-year deal is worth $72 million and includes $48.5 million guaranteed. Peter King of Sports Illustrated, who first reported that the deal was done, writes that Brady will earn what's believed to be the largest annual salary in NFL history.

It's worth noting that Brady's guarantee is less than the $50 million that the St. Louis Rams gave No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford. Former Colts coach Tony Dungy said after Bradford signed that deal that Brady and Peyton Manning should get $70 million or $80 million guaranteed.

But it's also worth noting, as Florio did last month, that the way NFL contracts are structured, the guarantees for veterans and for rookies don't really make for an apples-to-apples comparison.

In any event, Brady was guaranteed a lot of money today. And although they aren't talking about it publicly, you can bet that Manning and the Colts are taking a close look at these numbers.

I just hope he has really good insurance since he can't drive so well.

Bradford was the #1 pick. Brady was a 6th-round pick. Of course Bradford should get paid more.

Did they ever announce who's fault it was?

Or are you just assuming?

Looks like Manning is going to get at least the same amount guaranteed, maybe up to $10 million more.

I'm glad Brady is ok. He's my fantasy QB in both leagues. I need him. Oh and he's a good player. The NFL needs him.

Maybe he DID get injured in the car wreck yesterday... but faked being healthy until his contract was signed?

News reports are saying that the driver of the van is a 21 year old kid who has had FIVE license suspensions in his short driving career. :shake:

Meh.

Bradford's deal is $50mil guaranteed over 6 years.
Brady's is $48.5mil guaranteed over 4 years.

Brady's deal is better.

Yeah, but a proven HOFer vs. an unproven rookie.

PLEASE NFL PROVIDE A ROOKIE CAP!!!!!!!!

I agree there should be a rookie cap and pay scale, but stating that Bradford's deal is better than Brady's is highly innaccurate.

Oh I didn't state that, although comparing the two.... it shouldn't even be an arguement. Bradford should be making considerably less than any proven QB in the league.

I'm surprised New Englanders haven't started a witch hunt for this kid.

He almost ended the Patriots season.

If Brady had been injured, this shithead would've had to go live with Steve Bartman and Salman Rushdie.
