Tom Brady remains one of the best five quarterbacks to date that NFL has ever seen. He along with his pal Bill Belichick have held the distinction of being one of the greatest quarterback-coach partners, winning 124 regular games and 16 post-season games together. They appeared in five Super Bowls together. Tom was a student of Junipero Serra High, the school which also had Barry Bonds of the SF Giants. He joined the University of Michigan for four years, 1995 to 1999 and was on the bench for Brian Griese when the Wolverines won the national championship in 1997. Brady shared his quarterback position with Drew Hensonin for a year. He spent the year 2000 as fourth string quarterback behind Drew Bledsoe, John Friesz and Michael Bishop, but subsequent events, like Bledsoe’s injury, made him the main guy.
Tom Brady then signed along the doted for a four-year, $72 million contract in September with the Patriots. It is by far the NFL's richest deal for a yearly contract. Quickly then, in November, Brady was promoted to become the Patriots star player.

Money is not a problem for the cash rich duo who own wealth in the region beyond $100 million. This is thanks largely to Giselle’s modelling assignments and of course Tom’s NFL contract with the New England Patriots, including endorsements of all kinds. The house is located near the hills for the duo, who love hiking. The often take for long walks accompanied by their dogs.
