Tom Brady would continue to build on his legacy – and fortune – if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl.
Brady benefited from a $ 500,000 contract incentive when the Bucs beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26 on Sunday to win the NFC championship game, a source told ESPN. The star quarterback will make another $ 500,000 if the Bucs win the Super Bowl LV, according to the source.
Brady had already raised $ 1.25 million in incentives during the Tampa Bay postseason – $ 500,000 for the playoffs, $ 250,000 for the Bucs wildcard win in Washington, and another $ 500,000 Dollars for last Sunday’s playoff win against the New Orleans Saints. according to the source.
With the win on Sunday in Green Bay, the 43-year-old Brady reached the Super Bowl for the 10th time in his career. He joins Kurt Warner, Peyton Manning, and Craig Morton as the only quarterbacks running two separate franchises on a Super Bowl.
Brady, who won six Super Bowls and played nine with the New England Patriots, passed 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns that season – his first with the Buccaneers. The league’s three-time MVP led the Bucs to their first Super Bowl berth since their 2002 championship season.
“It was fun to be here and I had a great time in New England too,” Brady said on Friday. “I’ve had a great 21 years. I’m a very blessed and happy guy. The fact that I still play football is a blessing to me.”
