A profession of sports can be luxurious and the question always comes to how much is Tom Brady’s net worth in 2022?
Some athletes can compete for a decade. Some people take it a step further. Some people shorten it. Tom Brady has given 22 years of his life to his career and is still going strong.
Brady has been among the best quarterbacks in the league each season and he has made a lot from his achievement. But just how much has Tom Brady made over his prolific career, and how much is he making in 2022?
Following is a breakdown of Brady’s net worth, which includes money made in 2022 and throughout his NFL career, plus endorsements and business dealings. But let’s know a little more about who Tom Brady is.
Tom Brady Net Worth
Forbes publishes that Brady ranks ninth among the 2021 highest-paid athletes earning, as it extends $45 million in salary/winnings and $31 million in endorsements such as Under Armour, Sam Adams, Foot Locker and Tag Heuer.
As of 2022, Tom Brady’s net worth is estimated to be around $250 million with approximations of $230 million for the first 20 years of his NFL career and over $150 million in endorsements.
The big paydays have moved Tom Brady up the list of net worth among celebrities.
However, his wife is the one that brings home most of the money between the two of them. Celebrity Net Worth lists her wealth as $400 million, and that the couple is worth a combined $650 million.
How Much Does Tom Brady Make?
Brady’s base salary and roster bonus don’t quite add up to as much as he’s made in the past, as he’s making just $1,075,000 in base salary and $1,470,588 in his roster bonus for the addition of a 17th game to the season.
His big paycheck comes from his signing bonus, as he’s making a nice $25 million from that portion of his deal.
This is the first year of Brady’s new extension with the Buccaneers that he signed earlier in March, which keeps him in Tampa Bay through the 2022 season.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, Brady will earn $41.075 million total from his restructured contract, and there are three voidable years. Pelissero reported his cap hit is just $9.075 million.
“In 2020, he launched 199 Productions, a nod to the number of his selection in the 2000 NFL draft, to develop documentaries, films and TV shows,” according to Forbes. Tom Brady has also launched an NFL business called Autograph.
According to Business Insider’s report of March 2020, Brady risked at least $60 million throughout those 20 seasons in freeing up funds for the Pats to compensate other players in order to assemble Super Bowl-winning squads.
Tom Brady Agreement 2021
Brady signed a new deal with the Buccaneers in the offseason to keep him in Tampa Bay at least until the end of the 2022 season. Should he decide to retire at the end of this season, the Buccaneers would recover $16 million of his signing bonus.
According to ESPN, Brady received $500,000 for reaching the playoffs, and then a further $500,000 on each of his two great victories over the Saints and Packers.
But seeing as Brady seems to have his eyes set on playing a bit past this year, it appears that won’t be an issue.
On top of Brady’s salary and bonuses, he’s also lined up to make some million more in incentives. The breakdown is as follows:
Spotrac reports making $1,075,000 in base salary, $25 million in his signing bonus, and $1,470,588 in his roster bonus. In total, he will bring in just north of $27.5 million in earnings on the deal.
Individual incentives (Max $2.25 million per year)
So long as the Buccaneers are better than 26th in rushing per attempt, Brady, per Spotrac, can earn $562,500 for each of the following regular-season milestones:
- Top five in passing yards
- Top five in touchdowns thrown (or 25 passing touchdowns)
- Top five in yards per pass attempt
- Top five in passer rating
- Top five in completion percentage

Tom Brady’s Net Worth in 2022
Brady apparently had to give $16 million back to the Buccaneers franchise when he chose to leave at the end of the 2021-22 NFL season, and then he’ll get to retain it since he’s returned for another game.
The amount Brady will earn for the 2022-23 season was not officially disclosed when his return was announced, but based on what Tampa Bay has awarded him per year already, approximately it’ll be in the range of $20-$30 million.
