Default Re: Tom Brady extension

From what I read, Brady got $30 in bonus.
It doesn't matter, since like Dutch said, all $57M are guaranteed.
If Brady gets injured, the Pats are screwed.

Dutch, I read that they rework the contract so that $30M is termed as "bonus".
He will get more cash sooner than otherwise, and is fully guaranteed of the total $57M if he's injured.

Basically, the Pats are able to "defer" $15M in cap hit toward the last 3 years of the contract, at the risk of losing big time financially if Brady gets injured, especially early on.
