Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.

With a dramatic come-from-behind win in Super Bowl LI over the Atlanta Falcons, Brady has now won five championships. He is also as good as ever at 40 years old, an age when most football players are already retired.

Off the field, Brady’s life is pretty fabulous also. He’s married to the world’s most successful supermodel and once owned a $20 million house with a moat.

Brady was the fifth-highest-paid player in the NFL last season, making $28.8 million.

He is such a “dad” that he even proudly wears Stephen Curry’s widely mocked Under Armour shoes.


He even likes to do silly things like welcome a rescue dog to the family with a “Lion King” video on Facebook.
