TOM BRADY: How the greatest quarterback of all time makes and spends his millions

Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.

Brady already has five Super Bowl rings and on Sunday he will go for No. 6. He is also as good as ever at 40 years old, an age when most football players are already retired.

Off the field, Brady’s life is pretty fabulous also. He’s married to the world’s most successful supermodel, has an Aston Martin named for him, and once owned a $20 million house with a moat.

Brady was the fifth-highest-paid player in the NFL this season, making $37.8 million.

Brady recently signed a 2-year, $53.8 million extension with the Patriots. A big chunk of his earnings this season came in the form of a $36.74 million signing bonus. Brady is also the third-highest-paid player in NFL history, having already earned $196.2 million in his career.

Brady also makes about $257.45 million annually in endorsement deals with companies like Under Armour, Intel, and Shields.

His deal with Uggs was one that confused many since it was not known as a men's brand at the time.

Those figures sound enormous, but it's actually nothing compared to his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

Gisele made $40.02 million last year. She has been the highest-paid model in the world for a decade and is reportedly on pace to make $1.31 billion in career earnings.

The couple once owned a custom-built, $26.24 million mansion in Los Angeles.

It had a moat and a chicken coop so they can eat fresh eggs.

But in 2014, they sold the estate to Dr. Dre for $52.49 million. In 2013 they were reportedly searching for a new apartment in NYC. They were spotted looking at a $15.09 million duplex in Manhattan that spring.

They eventually settled on a glassy skyscraper condo that purchased for $15.35 million.


Late last year they put that condo back on the market with a price tag of $22.63 million.

That's because they reportedly dropped $26.24 million on a waterfront apartment in Tribeca .

Prior to New York, they lived in a Boston condo, but sold it for $12.07 million in 2012.

Interestingly, houses are basically Brady's only lavish purchases.

His cars aren't too gaudy. He got in an accident once while driving a regular old Audi.

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 is such a 'dad' that he even proudly wears Stephen Curry's widely mocked Under Armour shoes.

He even likes to do silly things like welcome a rescue dog to the family with a 'Lion King' video on Facebook.

Splash Mountain is about as wild as he gets.

He does show up at high society events though, like the Kentucky Derby.

Or the VIP box at Brazil's famed Carnival. He also attended the 2014 World Cup with Gisele.

But there are no boats or planes or 20-man entourages with him. Just a dad making sand castles with his kids.

Nowadays it seems like most of his big spending (beyond his housing) is health-based.

Brady and Gisele have a personal chef who has them on a strict diet that includes no sugar, no tomatoes, and avocado ice cream as a treat.

The chef even has the couple's children on a strict diet that is about 80% vegetables.

He even sells a $270 diet book that sold out almost immediately when it first came available.

Brady also employs a 'body coach' who works with Brady at least once every day and whose duties include spiritual guide, counselor, pal, nutrition adviser, trainer, and massage therapist.

He's the rare athlete who can actually afford to live a megastar lifestyle, but chooses not to.
