Tom Brady’s four-year, $60 million deal includes a $28 million signing bonus, via The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.

Under his previous contract, Brady was set to earn $19 million in the next two years. The Patriots quarterback will now earn $30 million under his new deal.

His base salary is $1 million in 2016 and 2017, and $14 million in 2018 and 2019. His cap hit for the Patriots will be $14 million in 2016 and 2017 and $22 million in 2018 and 2019. In his new deal, he will get $8 million less in salary, instead receiving compensation through a signing bonus. This adjustment could save Brady $2 million in the event he needs to serve his four-game suspension for Deflategate.


Brady will have a per-game roster bonus in 2018 and 2019. Every game he’s active, he’ll receive $62,500.

The deal is broken down at length by The Globe’s Ben Volin.
