At 44 years old, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady continues to play well on the field and get paid handsomely for it. The future Hall of Fame gunslinger has the Buccaneers aiming for a second consecutive Super Bowl trip.
But, the Los Angeles Rams stand in the way as of now. As the Buccaneers prepare for revenge against LA, Brady can earn a nice chunk of extra cash with a victory on Sunday to add to his impressive salary this season.
Tom Brady is still getting paid a lot of money, even at the age of 44
Brady and the Bucs restructured his contract in the offseason to allow more financial flexibility for players such as Leonard Fournette, Chris Godwin, Shaq Barrett, and others.
Brady still makes a pretty penny, although nowhere near as much as Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott, who are earning far more than Brady.
Still, Brady could command a lot more money than he is this season. The deal includes incentives and bonuses, which is normal, and most of those Brady should have no issue getting.
As the Buccaneers try to defeat the Rams, Brady could earn another nice chunk to his bank account and increase his earnings.
The Buccaneers QB can earn $500,000 to his $29.4 million paycheck with a victory over the Rams
Before Sunday’s game, Brady has already earned $29.4 million this season, according to Spotrac. An extra half-million dollars will be dropped on top with a victory over the Rams.
The legend already added nearly $2 million, thanks to leading the NFL in TD passes and yards, not to mention trouncing the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card round.
Is Brady worried about the incentives? Probably not.
He wants to win regardless, but adding money is never a bad thing. It won’t be easy, especially considering the Rams defeated the Buccaneers earlier this season at Sofi Stadium.
The Rams pose a serious threat to the Buccaneers
Revenge is up for grabs for Tampa Bay. In Week 3, Matthew Stafford’s team defeated Brady and company, 34-24. The Rams’ new quarterback threw for 343 yards and four touchdowns — including a 75-yarder to DeSean Jackson, who departed for the Las Vegas Raiders shortly after.
The Buccaneers are rolling right now after an easy victory over the Eagles, but the Rams just made easy work of the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night. Stafford only threw the ball 17 times for 202 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the running game combined for 38 carries and 140 yards.
Sean McVay’s team dominated every category against their NFC West foe and never had to worry in this one. But, this time, they head to Tampa Bay to face the defending Super Bowl Champions at Raymond James Stadium.
Perhaps the money is on Brady’s mind, but what’s more important is getting this team back to the Super Bowl and bringing home another Lombardi Trophy. After all, Brady probably wants to have another epic boat parade in Tampa.
A lot is up for grabs as the Rams and Buccaneers face off again, although much more is on the line.
