    And naturally, ESPN and every homer media outlet are doing their usual over the top ball washing.

    Can't wait for Brady to fall apart, we'll see how well run they will be then..

    Your spins are like clockwork.

    As I said earlier, kudos to Brady. More players should follow his lead. Congrats on the deal.

    I said in an earlier thread there is definitely hush money in this deal....don't you find it ironic Tammie is building a house on the same street as Krafty?

    Got the info off Cimini. I dont really care what the numbers are. The ouch was my opinion on a large some of money guaranteed for a sport that does not support longevity, especially with players over 35.
    Hope it works out for you.

    Huh?

    Hey, Pats fans are ecstatic about 60 million guaranteed to a 36 yr old aging QB who is built like a twig? His shoulder is already chronic, one good hit can pretty much end him.

    He gets credit for being a team first guy, but don't think your circle jerking little one-piece Pats pajamas he does this if he weren't Giselle's *****, and if he wasn't at the tail end of a successful career.

    I suspect that Peter King in his calculations forgot Krafty's "under the table" cash.

    Except he's already done this once before, in 2005 I believe. And he,s made well over 100 million on his own. So spin all you want. This a GREAT day to be a Pats fan.


    Btw..what will the Buttchez make next year?

    As a Pats fan, it's great to know he'll be around for a few more years. Wouldn't be surprised if he's still a top 3 QB at the end of this deal and he gets ANOTHER one.
    This is what Gisele thinks of Tom's puny income.

    Actually, King posted what Brady will actually make and it's more than Buttchez next year. Brady is still being paid in the teens.

    Amazingly, according to the source, the deal is for an eye-poppingly conservative $27 million, which is less than half his worth by any measure.

    The upshot of the deal is to give the Patriots massive cap relief in a flat-cap era. He was due to count $43.6 million on the New England salary cap in 2013 and 2014. Now, his cap numbers will add up to $28.6 million in the next two years, a savings of $15 million in cap dollars at a time the Patriots have free agents they want to sign to help keep the team atop the AFC East, which they have dominated since Brady took over at quarterback in 2001.

    "To be the highest-paid, or anything like that, is not going to make me feel any better,'' he said in 2005. "That's not what makes me happy. In this game, the more one player gets, the more he takes away from what others can get. Is it going to make me feel any better to make an extra million, which, after taxes, is about $500,000? That million might be more important to the team.''

    He feels guilty for cheating and doesn't want to be known for stealing too when he is 40!!!

    What he said......


    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ut-brady-deal/



    [QUOTE]
    When I first heard about Peter Kingís report that the Patriots had signed quarterback Tom Brady to a three-year, $27 million extension, I assumed the deal was worth $27 million per year.

    Itís not. For committing to the Patriots in the 2015, 2016, and 2017 seasons, Brady gets a total of $27 million.

    It appears, as explained last night, to be nothing more than an effort to reduce Bradyís cap number in 2013 and 2014, the final two years of his existing deal. Itís hard to spread money over the years of a contract if the contract covers only two more seasons. Come 2015, the likely reality is that a new deal will be done ó after the appearance that Brady has taken less is used to squeeze other players into doing the same thing, which the Pats did masterfully last decade.

    Still, teams and agents are looking at the numbers and wonder what else could be going on. Whispers of a side deals already have begun in league circles, even though there is (and likely will be) no proof of a wink-nod arrangement that will see Brady get compensated in other ways.

    Sides deals arenít unprecedented in pro football. The Broncos lost a second-round pick, a third-round pick, and paid a $950,000 for violations relating to $29 million in deferred payments to John Elway and Terrell Davis during the teamís Super Bowl window of the late 1990s. Again, there is (and likely will be) no proof of a side deal in this case.

    Now that more and more teams are pressed against the salary cap and trying to finagle spending space, suspicions of side arrangements and briefcases full of cash will return to the NFL ó even if no team is ever caught or is ever guilty.

    In Bradyís case, the facts as presently known raise natural red flags. At a time when the high-water mater for quarterbacks is $20 million, the notion that Brady would commit to playing for less than half that average over a three-year window starting three seasons from now makes no sense.

    At a minimum, agent Don Yee has provided his competitors with more than enough ammunition for the inherently cutthroat game of chasing new clients. At a maximum, teams and agents will probe for something/anything to explain why Tom Brady was willing to sign a contract that pays him so much less than heíll be worth starting two years from now.

    Maybe, in the end, the explanation is that, given his wifeís obscene earnings, heís willing to take a lot less money in order to help that Pats stack the deck for another Super Bowl run or two.[\QUOTE]

    I guarantee that the Pats will take the same approach as the Colts. Play to win the next two years, and then 'Suck for Luck II' will begin.

    No question about it. it's a smart move. They can blame an aging Brady on their decline.

  16. #116
    I wouldn't be surprised to see some other player in Brady's position (Manning maybe) do the same thing to give his team cap relief. The agents must be ticked off. I bet some of the players are too. Classic move by the Pats. No wonder Kraft is a billionaire.

    Ray, Brady is going to be dead by the time this thread is over, first he was 35, then you said he was 36 and now he is 37, this is like that Mel Gibson movie where he ages overnight.

    Pat's now have close to $30 mill. by some accounts. That's a lotta cheese to spread around when so many other top teams are being squeezed by the flat cap.
    That doesn't mean they will spend it. The Pats have played well below the cap before.

    Other than his serious knee injury in 2007, Brady has never missed a NFL start in his 12-year career.

    But all of a sudden, you think he will be some kind of injury prone QB.

    Maybe the Pats should start working player contracts like the Jets.
