Former NFL agent Joel Corry thinks he knows just how much money Tom Brady is going to command on the open market.
The six-time Super Bowl champion is set to become a free agent in march and has plenty of suitors ready to take him on if the Patriots elect to not bring him back.
Corry, who is done working as an agent and contributes to CBS Sports, explained that Brady could make roughly $33 million annually.
Via CBS Sports:
Brady has an expiring contract for the first time in his illustrious 20-year career. Reports started surfacing around the Super Bowl that the Patriots would be willing to pay at least $30 million per year to keep Brady, and the Raiders would also be in pursuit. There has been plenty of speculation about the Chargers as a potential suitor since Philip Rivers won’t be back for a 17th season.
Brady has consistently stated he wants to play at until he’s at least 45. He is already in uncharted territory as the oldest full-time starting quarterback in league history. Ben Roethlisberger, who will be 38 in March, sets the older quarterback market. The Steelers gave him a two-year, $68 million extension where $37.5 million was fully guaranteed last April.
This past season, Brady had his lowest touchdown total since 2006 and his lowest completion percentage since 2013. Despite that, teams know what he will bring to their franchise and that’s a championship pedigree and a non-stop desire to win another Super Bowl.
These are his stats in the three seasons since he turned 40: 85 touchdowns, 27 interceptions, 96.0 quarterback rating.
He has earned upwards of $235 million for his career.
