Tom Brady has millions of reasons to win the Super Bowl

Tom Brady is reportedly set to receive $2.25 million dollars in total incentives if he leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory in two weeks over the Kansas City Chiefs, ESPN reported, citing sources

The win would be the franchise’s second NFL title and its first since 2002.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brady has collected the following incentives to date:

  • $500,000 for making it to the playoffs.
  • $250,000 for the wild-card win over Washington.
  • $500,000 for the win over New Orleans to advance to the NFC Championship game, and
  • $500,000 for the win over Green Bay to advance to the Super Bowl.

If he leads Tampa to a win over Kansas City in the Super Bowl, he’ll collect another $500,000 in incentives, for a total of $2.25 million.

The 43-year-old quarterback signed a two-year deal with a guaranteed $50 million last March when he decided to move from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

As an extra personal incentive, if Brady leads the Bucs to this year’s Super Bowl title, he would have seven rings, the most won by any single player in NFL history. His personal haul would even eclipse the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots for the team record of six!

Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns this season. 

Super Bowl LV takes place Sunday, February 7, at the Bucs’ home stadium, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
