Tom Brady Will Receive Most of his $20M Signing Bonus If he Delays Retirement Until After February 4

After intense speculation yesterday regarding his future, Tom Brady might want to wait a little before deciding to hang up his boots after 22 seasons in the NFL due to a handsome payout if he decides to call time on his career after February 4.

The legendary quarterback, 44, agreed to a one-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through the 2022 season, worth $25million, in March 2021. However, if he retires before February 4, Brady will be giving up $15million out of a $20million signing bonus. Should he stay on through that date, Spotrac reports that Brady’s entire salary would be guaranteed but voided if he decides to retire.

Brady had initially signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he first joined them from free agency at the beginning of the 2020 season after his contract with the New England Patriots had expired.
