Tom Brady will continue to build on his legacy – and his fortune – if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Super Bowl.
Brady cashed in on 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. If according to the source, Super Bowl L.V. If win, the star quarterback will earn another $ 500,000.
Brady had already collected $ 1.25 million in incentives during Tampa Bay’s postseason run – $ 500,000 to make it to the playoffs, $ 250,000 to the Bucs’ wild-card win in Washington, and last Sunday against the New Orleans Saints $ 500,000 for the divisional playoff victory, according to the source.
With Sunday’s win in Green Bay, 43-year-old Brady reached the Super Bowl for the 10th time in his storied career. He joins Kurt Warner, Peyton Manning and Craig Morton as the only quarterbacks to lead two different franchises in a Super Bowl.
Brady, who won six Super Bowls and played a total of nine matches with the New England Patriots, passed for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns this season – his first match with the Buccaneers. The three-time league MVP led the Bucks to their first Super Bowl berth since the 2002 championship season.
“It’s just been fun being here, and I had a great time in New England as well,” Brady said on Friday. “I am a great 21 years old. I am a very blessed and lucky boy. The fact that I am still playing football is a blessing to me.”
