Tom Brady: Patriots “Yes Man” To Extension

The definition of Patriot means: a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion. Replace country with the word team and you have quarterback Tom Brady.

Never have I witnessed a better version of a NFL “company man” than Tom Terrific. The future hall of famer reportdely signed a 3-year contract extension with the Patriots. The new deal comes with ONLY a 3 million signing bonus. Also surprising is the deal is only worth $27 million. Now I’ve seen some “yes men” in my time but Brady takes the cake.

This deal will no doubt win over the commoner who champions NFL “employees” taking a pay cut but this is ridiculous. According to the report, Brady will make $7 million in 2015, $8 million in 2016 and $9 million in the final season of the deal, 2017. It makes one wonder how the NFL approved such a deal considering he receiving much lower than his worth. Here’s a yearly breakdown:

2013 $13.8 million.
2014: $14.8 million.
2015: $13 million.
2016: $14 million.
2017: $15 million.

Now tell me… is he worth more? Yes, man!
