Tom Brady’s Financial Impact

June 8th, 2021

“Boy, I tell ya’ Jason, that Brady is making people ’round here a boatload of money.”

Yesterday on the best damn football show on radio, “Movin’ the Chains,” heard weekday afternoons exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, there was chatter about what’s going on inside the walls of One Buc Palace.

Specifically, co-hosts Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller talked about the new contracts granted to AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht and Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

Ian Rapoport of broke the news on Twitter, but it was sparse on details. Arians got a raise — but apparently not an extended contract. Licht got an extension.

No additional specifics are known. Arians will speak later this morning after minicamp practice and perhaps he will share more.

Arians, 68, is under contract through the 2022 season and there is a one-year option for Team Glazer after that.

Interesting, the current contract for park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved Bucs-Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady expires after the 2022 season as well.

Licht has already said he told Brady he can quarterback the Bucs until he is 50 so long as he’s physically up to the task.

Arians has said publicly he doesn’t know how much longer he wants to coach if he has to find a bunch of new assistants and train them in his ways.

Usually, when a team wins a Super Bowl, other teams cherry-pick their coaches. The only assistant the Bucs lost was assistant wide receivers coach Antwaan Randle-El, who left to become wide receivers coach in Detroit.

So when the chatter turned to Arians and Licht on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Kirwan wondered aloud how much money Brady has made people connected to the Bucs.

Kirwan said someday we will learn.

Already Arians got a raise. Licht got an extension. And who knows how much less money Chris Godwin, Shaq Barrett, Antonio Brown and others would have made if the Bucs chose Door No. 2 last year and instead signed Teddy Bridgewater, who is currently on his fourth team in three seasons.

    Funny how Pat did nothing but kiss Belicheat’s arse for 20yrs but now that TB12 wins w/ Bucs….it’s all about how great Tom is….

  2. mg Says:

    TB-12 made Patriot Place for massaged bobby…
    The TB-12 effect made billions change hands in New England.
    Tampa will be a cash cow for the future.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The positive financial impact of Tom Brady is immeasurable.Not only on ticket sales and all the side benefits of that on the community….but on merchandise and media…..and it will impact the Bucs long after Brady is gone.

  4. Bird Says:

    Bucs apparel/ sales went from literally worst to first in one year under brady

    Up 1200%

    Glazers are smoking a cigar right now. Well i take that back. Maybe licking a lollipop right now.

    How much money did TB12 bring the glazers? The rest pales in comparison to those at the top. A top ratings draw a top Jersey draw a championship a waiting list for tickets a path out of irrelevancy. They can afford to flub their soccer ventures with an avengers league that no one wanted because the goat will keep them afloat.

  6. Mitch Says:

    Tom did the same thing in New England for 20 years. There’s a video of him talking during an interview about the pressure he puts on himself to perform because he didn’t want to be responsible for any executive or coach losing their job. It’s a pretty interesting clip.

  7. Usedtocould Says:

    Bird, good point. And the joke is funny because they’re Malcom’s kids.

  8. Chesapeake Bay Bucco Says:

    HC BA got a raise? I thought he was just Ol Stale Biscuit and was washed up!

  9. Cobraboy Says:

    Why would Arians not want to coach this team into perpetuity? He’s having a blast!

  10. OneBuc55 Says:

    I knew the Bucs coaching staff would remain intact for the most part due to the fact that Bruce has alot of minorities on his staff…

    We all know how hard it is for minority coaches to get opportunities in the NFL…

  11. SlyPirate Says:

    The only issue I see with BA’s extension is losing Todd Bowles after the season.

  12. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Covid held back and disguised the real $$ impact of TB12.

    This season with all stadiums now cleared to rock we’ll see some of the first windfall for the Glazers.

    A question for all? Do we think there will be any empty seats at RayJay this year?
