Tom Brady isn’t the highest-paid in the NFL. He doesn’t have that many endorsements either.
But he’s easily the league’s biggest mainstream celebrity.
He’s married to the world’s most successful supermodel, and just finished building a $US20 million house with a moat.
The rest of his money comes from ~$7 million worth of annual endorsements with companies like Under Armour.
Those figures sound enormous, but it's actually nothing compared to his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
Gisele made $US45 million last year. She's reportedly on pace to make $US1 billion in career earnings.
They're also reportedly searching for a new apartment in NYC. They were spotted looking at a $US11.5 million duplex in Manhattan this spring.
He told ESPN that he's a homebody, and has to talk to his friends' kids about music so he knows what's popular.
He's the rare athlete who can actually afford to live a Floyd Mayweather-esque lifestyle, but tends not to.
