Default Tom Brady

agreed to 6 year extension worth over 68 mil with 26.5 mill in guaranteed cash. Is that fair market value. I don't think so. I think that NY jet gave their QB more.

Link to ESPN Brady article

If Brady agreed to the extension, doesn't that automatically mean it's a fair offer to him? Here are the contract details:

Quote:
Brady signed a new six-year contract, worth nearly $60 million, through the 2010 season, sources say.

The contract replaces the two years that Brady had remaining on his previous deal. Under that contract, Brady was scheduled to earn base salaries of $5.5 million in 2005 and $6 million for 2006.

According to documents obtained by ESPN.com, the contract includes a $14.5 million signing bonus and a $12 million option bonus that is due next spring. The base salaries are $1 million (for 2005), $4 million ('06), $6 million ('07), $5 million ('08), $2.3 million ('09) and $3.5 million ('10). There are roster bonuses of $3 million each in the final three years of the contract.

Brady will have a salary cap charge of $8.429 million for 2005, which is between $1.5 million and $2 million less than under his old contract. But his cap number for 2006 jumps to a prohibitive $14.423 million, meaning the contract will have to be revisited probably by converting the option bonus into a signing bonus, which can then be prorated.

There are also guarantees, such as injury guarantees in the 2007 and '08 seasons, in the deal. Over the first three years of the contract, a measuring stick that is often used now by many agents and teams to gauge comparative value, the deal averages $13.111 million.
He'll earn $31.5 million over the next 2 years ($20 million more than if he had played under his old contract). That's not fair? Who are you, the 3rd Poston Brother?

It doesn't have to be fair. He wants to WIN so its SMART. He knows they aren't going to give him a peyton deal and i dont think he wants one.

Let's face it INDY aint going anywhere anytime soon b/c they can't afford any D.

I know if I were him that I'd take less money to play for the proven best team in the NFL right now. If they hold together long enough he'll easily be a first ballot hall of famer. Besides, 68 million isn't exactly chump change.

Look at the cap hits in the next 4 years (Brady and Peyton's primes), both he and Peytons numbers are nearly the same.

Don't just look at it as 68 million = good deal because it doesn't say 99 million. Peyton's deal can be spread out over nine years, bradys can't.

Peytons signing bonus = 27 mil
Bradys signing bounus = 26 mil

From MMQB

Season Manning's cap number Brady's cap number
2005 $8.43 million $3.417 million
2006 $10.05 million $8.817 million
2007 $7.69 million $10.817 million
2008 $18.19 million $12.817 million
2009 $20.69 million $12.817 million
2010 $19.95 million $11.317 milion

Are you serious? Nearly the same? $20.6 mill on a QB in one year is insane. I would rather have Brady at 12.8 mill, and have cap space for lets say a Defense!?

Wow that is unreal!!! DC_ROCK couldn`t have said it any better

Really want to be shocked go this site


http://asp.usatoday.com/sports/footb...er=Salary+desc

See where Brady`s Salary ranks with other players in the NFL last yr 2004.Example Gary Walker made twice as much as Brady last yr! Javon Kearse made 3 times more! go figure. So T.O. if you out there you need to snap on that chin strap and get to work!! Quit your

DC Rock thank you for clearing it all up for us.

Colt, I know you HAVE to defend your team but even you have to question spending 99 and 66 million dollars on TWO players. You can't even re-sign James to anything longer than a one year contract?

Much less name one STAR you have on defense?
