Tom Brady Early Life
Tom Brady was born on August 3rd, 1977 in San Mateo, California to a family of sports fanatics. He is the only son and fourth child of Galynn and Thomas Brady. He has three older sisters: Nancy, Julie, and Maureen. He was raised Catholic. Growing up, he attended San Francisco 49ers games with his family. He was a fan of Joe Montana. He grew up a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. He went to football camp as a kid at the College of San Mateo, where future NFL quarterback Tony Graziani was his camp counselor and taught him how to throw the football.
Brady graduated from San Mateo’s Junipero Serra High School in 1995, where he played football, baseball, and basketball. He became the starting quarterback of his high school team during his junior year. During his senior year, he made highlight tapes and sent them to colleges they wanted to go to. Back in the mid-1990s, the college recruiting of athletes was very different. If Brady was graduating from high school today, he would be considered a four-star recruit. These rankings were not widely used back in 1995. Brady narrowed his life of colleges down to Cal, UCLA, USC, Michigan, and Illinois. Brady was also drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft. Brady signed to play college football with the University of Michigan.
In college, Brady was the backup quarterback (behind future NFL QB Brian Griese) for the first two years. Brady struggled to get playing time. He ended up starting every game of the 1998 and 1999 seasons. During his first full year as a starter, he set new Wolverine records for most pass attempts and completions in a season. Michigan won 20 of 25 games Brady started. He had an impressive college career but still was not an early draft pick. Brady was drafted with the 199th pick in the sixth round of the 2000 draft by the New England Patriots.
Tom Bradey Career
Due to his late selection, Brady is considered the biggest “steal” in the history of the NFL Draft. He went on to become the team’s starting quarterback in his second season and was with the Patriots for 20 seasons, the NFL record for seasons as quarterback for one team. He is one of only two quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in their first season as a starter. He is the winningest quarterback in NFL history and never had a losing season as a starting quarterback while with the Patriots. He led the Patriots to more division titles (16) than any other quarterback in NFL history. With a postseason record of 30–11, he is first all-time in playoff wins and appearances for an NFL player. Brady has led the Patriots to an NFL-record eight consecutive AFC championship games since 2011 (and 13 overall). Brady has also been selected to 14 Pro Bowls, which ties the NFL record for most selections.
Brady has an annual salary of $30 million. Between 2000 and 2019 while Tom was with the Patriots, he earned $230 million in his career from salary alone. In the same time frame, he earned an additional approximately $100 million from endorsements. During the same period, Gisele Bündchen’s career earnings were nearly $500 million.
By the time his two year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ends, he will have earned a minimum of $280 million in salary and $140 million from endorsements. So by the end of his career, Tom Brady’s career earnings should top $420 million.
