Tom Brady stuck with New England Patriots because of Gisele says NFL expert
Tom Brady has never left the New England Patriots because he’s not the only breadwinner in his family.
That’s according to NFL expert and presenter Ian O'Connor, who says Gisele Bundchen’s successful modelling career means he hasn’t been forced to chase the cash.

Brady has spent his entire career with the Patriots and is still remunerated handsomely.
However, he could have pocketed far more if he’d packed his bags and joined another franchise.
Brady has been married to supermodel Gisele since 2006. She is one of the wealthiest figures in the entertainment industry.
Speaking in a fascinating throwback clip, O'Connor explained she had been a huge driving force in Brady remaining loyal to Bill Belichick's side.
“He’s never been a guy that worried about money – and he’s also had the benefit of the highest earning supermodel in the world for a long time,” he explained.
“Gisele’s dynasty is greater than his.
“She had a run of 15, 16 or 17 years where she was the highest earning supermodel in the world.
“So, that’s one reason why money has never concerned him.”
Brady has an estimated net worth of around 180 million dollars.
O'Connor isn’t convinced boosting his bank balance has ever been a priority.
“It’s not what he’s about,” he added.
“I don’t know if it’d be any different for him if he didn’t have a wife that earned that sort of money.
“He was smart enough to realise a long time ago that: ‘if I rack up enough rings, I’ll go down as the greatest quarterback of all time. I’ll make enough money along the way and I’ll be fine with it.’”
Brady’s relationship with Patriots head coach Belichick has been the source of much speculation.
The veteran quarterback appeared to win a behind the scenes power struggle when Jimmy Garoppolo was offloaded to the San Francisco 49ers.
Garoppolo is proving his worth in California, though.
After an injury ravaged 2018 season, he’s looking like a potential MVP contender this term.
