Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2017 season, when he will be 40 years old. The biggest news is that his  will pay Brady a $3 million signing bonus immediately, in addition to salaries of $7 million in 2015, $8 million in 2016 and $9 million in 2017, which means for the next three years, he will be making less than $10 million annually, while QBs like Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Joe Flacco will be making $20 million+ per year. That’s the definition of a team-first player.
