Patriots Add $5M In Incentives To Contract Of Tom Brady

11-ON-11 PERFORMANCES

Brady is now set to make $15 million, but will be given a variety of performance-based bonuses to bring him closer to the actual QB market.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not play in New England's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins because he is dealing with a sore back, the Boston Globe's Jim McBride reported late Thursday evening. The incentives are said to be similar in structure to the escalators the Patriots added to tight end Rob Gronkowski's contract last season, which enabled the injury-prone star to earn up to $5.5 million in bonuses if he met certain statistical benchmarks. Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is the top-earning in the National Football League at the quarterback position after he signed a five-year, $150 million contract in May.

The 41-year-old's current deal has two years worth $41 million left that runs through the 2019 campaign, which has left the door open to what the Patriots will do after this upcoming season as he will be in his final year.

In total, Spotrac predicts 15 quarterbacks will make more than Brady this season based on average salary.
