Nana's Vibrator: Anyone have a source that isn't run by sh*t stains?


NV, Here is the text:

The New England Patriots will add $5 million in performance-based incentives to quarterback Tom Brady's contract by this weekend, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday.

Brady is currently scheduled to make $15 million this season, and the team is adding the incentives to bring him to closer to the market, the source told Schefter.

The adjustments are similar to what the Patriots did last year with tight end Rob Gronkowski's deal, the source told Schefter.

Brady, the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player, turned 41 on Aug. 3 and is entering his 19th season. He has two years remaining on his contract.

His average salary of $15 million ranks 22nd in the NFL, just behind the Cleveland Browns' Tyrod Taylor ($15.3 million) and the Cincinnati Bengals' Andy Dalton ($16 million), per the Roster Management System. The highest-paid quarterback is Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons, who signed a deal worth $30 million per season.

After skipping voluntary offseason workouts in May for personal reasons, Brady was asked if his contract status was a reason he stayed away from the team.

"I've never talked about my contract. I've never brought up money for a lot of reasons that I've said over the years," the five-time Super Bowl champion said. "Those things are very personal."

Brady was 385-of-581 for a league-high 4,577 yards, with 32 touchdown passes and 8 interceptions, while leading the Patriots to a 13-3 record for the 2017 regular season.

Last season, the Patriots restructured Gronkowski's contract to give him the opportunity to boost his salary from $5.25 million to $10.75 million through performance-based incentives. According to Spotrac, Gronkowski wound up making $10,187,500 in 2017.

It's called hush money

So, his salary is also slightly deflated. Shocking.

Saw it in a football thread on here the other day: there's a new book on the Deflategate scandal. I believe it's called 12 and then has a subtitle that escapes me.

Has anyone picked it up? Worth reading? I'm a non-Pats fan but interested in the controversy and I usually enjoy reading sports nonfiction.

Wouldn't that fall into the category of "bonus not likely to be earned"? They use those to monkey around with the salary cap, or at least they used to. Like giving an OLineman a contract offer with a bonus for reaching 500 yards rushing on the season. You can take that money and push it onto the cap for the next season when the player doesn't earn the bonus.

So I guess it's a million dollars for each of five categories that he was top five in last year. If he wins the SB, it's double, but it's capped at five million. So if he produces the same as last year he gets the five million...if he slips a little, but still wins the super bowl, he'll probably get five million.
