The G.O.A.T.’s $375,000,000 Video

Some of NFL Quarterback Tom Brady’s many accomplishments:

  • Chosen as the 199th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft.
  • 23 NFL Seasons.

  • The most game-winning drives and fourth-quarter comeback victories in history.

  • All-time regular-season and post-season leader in passing attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns.

  • Post season appearance in 20 of 21 as starting quarterback.

  • Ten (10) Super Bowl appearances with seven (7) championship rings: The most appearances and wins of any NFL player. No other quarterback comes close.

  • $302,962,372 in total compensation from the NFL during his career.

“A soft, easy life is not worth living, if it impairs the fibre of brain and heart and muscle. We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage… For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.”
- President Theodore (“Teddy”) Roosevelt, October 5, 1898, NYC, opening address of his campaign for governor.

And, for the 99.9914% of us who will never become famous or anywhere near that wealthy, perhaps the most impressive Tom Brady accomplishment of all:

At 42 years old Tom Brady will now re-retire from the NFL and make more money as a sports announcer for Fox Sports than he made his entire career as a quarterback: $375,000,000 over ten years.

Welcome to the “soft, easy life” Tom, you’ve earned it. ;-)

Congratulations Tom, with many thanks from a long-time New England Patriots fan. And, good luck with your next adventure, with best wishes!

Thanks for Reading!
