Brady is almost as well-known off the field as he is on it. He had a very highly publicized relationship (and breakup) with actress Bridget Moynahan. He has appeared on many non-sports magazine covers during his time with the Patriots, including GQ, Esquire and Handout. Brady only made $3.5 million in base salary in 2009, but still pulled in $16.5 million in total earnings, according to Sports Illustrated.
Fun fact: Brady's first Super Bowl run only earned him $298,000 in base salary.
