Early Life

Tom Brady was born on August 3rd, 1977 in San Mateo, California to a family of sports fanatics. He is the only son and fourth child of Galynn and Thomas Brady. He has three older sisters: Nancy, Julie, and Maureen. He was raised Catholic. Growing up, he attended San Francisco 49ers games with his family. As a child he idolized Joe Montana. He grew up a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. He went to football camp as a kid at the College of San Mateo, where future NFL quarterback Tony Graziani was his camp counselor and taught him how to throw the football.

Brady graduated from San Mateo's Junipero Serra High School in 1995, where he played football, baseball, and basketball. He became the starting quarterback of his high school team during his junior year. During his senior year, he made highlight tapes and sent them to colleges they wanted to go to. Back in the mid-1990s, the college recruiting of athletes was very different. If Brady was graduating from high school today, he would be considered a four-star recruit. These rankings were not widely used back in 1995. Brady narrowed his life of colleges down to Cal, UCLA, USC, Michigan, and Illinois. Brady was also drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft. Brady signed to play college football with the University of Michigan.

In college, Brady was the backup quarterback (behind future NFL QB Brian Griese) for the first two years. Brady struggled to get playing time. He ended up starting every game of the 1998 and 1999 seasons. During his first full year as a starter, he set new Wolverine records for most pass attempts and completions in a season. Michigan won 20 of 25 games Brady started. He had an impressive college career but still was not an early draft pick. Brady was drafted with the 199th pick in the sixth round of the 2000 draft by the New England Patriots.

Career

Due to his late selection, Brady is considered the biggest "steal" in the history of the NFL Draft.¬†He went on to become the team's starting quarterback in his second season and was with the Patriots for 20 seasons, the NFL record for seasons as quarterback for one team.¬†He is one of only two quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in their first season as a starter. He is the¬†winningest quarterback in NFL history and never had a losing season as a starting quarterback while with the Patriots. He led the Patriots to more division titles (16) than any other quarterback in NFL history. With a postseason record of 30‚Äď11, he is first all-time in playoff wins and appearances for an NFL player. Brady has led the Patriots to an NFL-record eight consecutive AFC championship games since 2011 (and 13 overall). Brady has also been selected to 14 Pro Bowls, which ties the NFL record for most selections.

Brady was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for his alleged involvement in the Deflategate football-tampering scandal. Brady and the Patriots won two of the next three Super Bowls.

In March 2020, Tom Brady announced that he was moving from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While in Tampa he rents Derek Jeter's palatial custom-built waterfront mansion at a cost of reportedly $70,000 per month. With the Bucs he won his seventh Super Bowl when Tampa Bay defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9. After a short-lived retirement announcement in February 2022, Brady retired from the game for good in February 2023 holding a slew of NFL quarterback records.

Tampa Bay Contract

Tom's Tampa Bay contract is worth a minimum of $50 million over two years. He will essentially earn a base salary of $15 million-plus a $10 million roster bonus each year. If he hits various milestones, the contract could pay as much as $60 million. Tom actually turned down a higher contract from the Patriots because it wasn't fully guaranteed.

Fox Sports Contract

On May 10, 2022, it was reported that Tom Brady had signed a 10-year $375 million deal to join the Fox Sports broadcasting booth for NFL games upon his retirement. At $37.5 million per year, this deal would not only be the largest contract in sportscasting history, it would enable Brady to earn a little more than twice as much as quarterbacks-turned-commentators Tony Romo and Troy Aikman. But the latest reports suggest that Brady is leaning toward walking away from this deal.

FTX Collapse

In June of 2021 Tom and Gisele were revealed as the newest "Brand Ambassadors" of crypto exchange FTX. The couple would go on to appear in several ads for the company, including one in which Tom starred alongside company founder Sam Bankman-Fried.

As you now know, in November 2022, FTX collapsed into bankruptcy over a matter of days and within a few weeks Sam Bankman-Fried was arrested and extradited to the United States to face charges of money laundering and wire fraud.

In the wake of the collapse and ensuing bankruptcy case, a handful of details regarding Tom and Gisele's FTX compensation were released. On January 10, 2023 the bankruptcy court released a document that listed all of FTX's largest individual equity holders. That document revealed that for his services, Tom Brady received 1,144,861 common shares of FTX. Gisele received 686,761 shares.

Television personality Kevin O'Leary was shown to have received 32,000 shares. In an interview with CNBC and Senate testimony, Kevin claimed his FTX stake was worth $1 million at its peak. Using these numbers we can calculate that at some point the private market price for a single share of FTX was $31.25. That would mean combined, Tom and Gisele's 1.8 million shares were at one point worth around $57 million. They likely also received tens of million in additional compensation. For example, Kevin O'Leary received approximately $14 million in other compensation.

Tom and Gisele, and every other celebrity endorser, will very likely receive nothing in return for their equity stakes.

Real Estate

Massachusetts:

In May 2013, Tom and Gisele paid $4.5 million for a lot in a gated community in Brookline, Massachusetts. They proceeded to custom build a 10,000-square-foot mansion. In August 2019, they listed this home for $39.5 million. After dropping the price to $33.9 million, the home sold in an off-market deal with no pricing information disclosed. Here's a video tour:

In 2006, Tom paid $6.24 million for a building in Boston. He then spent $11.5 million converting the building from nine condos into four condos. In 2011, he sold the penthouse for $9.3 million. He sold three of the remaining units for a combined $8 million.

Brentwood:

In 2009, Tom and Gisele bought an undeveloped plot of land in LA's Brentwood neighborhood for $9 million. Over the next three years, they spent an additional $20 million constructing a 14,000 square-foot home which they ended up living in for less than a year. The mansion, which was built from scratch out of acid-washed limestone, sits on a parcel of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The home features hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, open-beamed ceilings, multiple fireplaces, a state-of-the art kitchen, a large gym, airy, marble-tiled bathrooms, and multiple large closets.  Outside of the  house, there is a moat filled with koi, a large pool, a motorcourt constructed out of reclaimed stones that can only be reached by driving over a small bridge, and beautifully landscaped grounds.  The entire home is eco-friendly and uses solar power and grey-water technology.  It was also constructed out of eco-friendly reclaimed materials.

In May 2014, Dr. Dre bought the property from them for $50 million. Not a bad way to make $21 million. Here's a drone video tour of their former Brentwood mansion:

New York City:

In 2018, Tom and Gisele paid $25.5 million for a 12th-floor unit in a New York City building. They sold this unit in December 2020 for $40 million. The still own a smaller unit in the same building which has 4,300-square-feet of living space overlooking the Hudson river.

Florida:

In late 2020, Tom and Gisele paid $17 million for a two-acre estate on Miami's ultra-exclusive Indian Creek island, which is also known as Billionaire Bunker. The 300 acre island has just 34 total lots and is accessible only by a single guarded bridge. A private police force patrols the island 24/7. Tom and Gisele tore down the existing 5,700-square-foot mansion so they could build a new much larger mansion in its place. Close neighbors include Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

Before buying their Indian Creek property, Tom and Gisele rented Derek Jeter's Tampa mansion for a reported $75,000 per month.

After retiring from football, Tom Brady listed his 6,500-square-foot Tampa home for rent at $60,000 per month.

Montana:

Tom and Gisele own a property at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. It's unclear what type of property they own. Condos in the property go for $6 million, homes go for $30 million+.
