    Ya know whats amazing about that...Brady isnt far behind Manning in endorsement money...I guess Manning must only charge a few hundred per commercial.

    Tiger is a resident of florida so that cool 100M in endorsements is completely state taxed free. That would be 9M in CA where I am. Now I know why a disproportional amount of millionaires "reside" in FL.

    Interesting list. A lot of overpaid guys on it. I've never heard of about 90 percent of the NBA guys on it, which I wear as a badge of honor. The NBA is a ****ty, third tier league anyway.

    Certainly not too shaby for someone who's career achievements don't amount to a hill of beans.

    OK, here we go again:

    Uh, wasn't it just guaranteed so it could be spread out for cap purposes? Not that Tom is not a great guy and a prototypical team guy, but geez, you'd like to see professional sports writers stop screwing this kind of thing up.

    edit: after posting the above from memory I checked the definitive source, Miguel's page, who quoted that other definitive source, Mike Reiss:

    "The Patriots took Brady's $6 million base salary in 2007 and paid $5.28 million of it to Brady in the form of a signing bonus. That lowered Brady's base salary in 2007 to $720,000. By resturcting Brady's contract, the Patriots saved $3.96 million in cap space in 2007. As for the rest of the deal, Brady's base salary remained the same in 2008, at $5 million. His base salary increased to $5 million in 2009. He was previously scheduled to earn $2.3 million in base salary in 2009. Brady's base salary remained the same in 2010, at $3.5 million. Brady did not take a pay cut as part of the restructure."
