Tom Brady is a 6-time Super Bowl champion, 4-time Super Bowl MVP, and 3-time NFL MVP. Despite such an impressive track record, Tom Brady is paid less than many other players in the NFL. This is because of the league's salary cap system, which limits the amount of money that teams can spend on individual players. The salary cap also helps to ensure competitive balance between teams by preventing them from significantly outspending one another for talent. Additionally, Brady's contract structure has been structured to give the team more financial flexibility throughout the season. With such restrictions, teams are unable to offer Brady the maximum salary that he might be able to command elsewhere. As a result, the greatest quarterback of all time is paid less than many of his peers.
