The Bottom Line: NFL QB Salary Cap Edition

  • Tom Brady sure does win a lot. Maybe this has to do with the fact that he typically takes less a salary that is less than the top of the market for quarterbacks and that he also structures his contracts in a team-friendly manner that provides his team with flexibility to add more talent to the roster? I’m sure being married to the highest paid supermodel in the world helps too, right?
  • Having a quarterback on a rookie contract seems to help. Since a quarterback on a rookie contract tends to consume less cap space it is easier to surround that rookie with more talent.
