Tom Brady does it again; Restructures deal to sign Revis and company

Two years ago, Tom Brady restructured his deal to re-sign Wes Welker his friend. The Patriots however turned their back on him and signed Danny Amendola instead.

Well Brady is faithful and has did it again, according to Adam Schefter.

This is why you have to respect Brady.

In a deal turned into NFL today, Tom Brady restructured his contract to give NE $24 million more in cash to spend this winter, per sources.

Under the new deal, Brady changed the $24 million in “skill” guarantee to only “injury” guarantee, meaning that Brady now would get the guaranteed money only if he were injured. Brady also now can be released from the Patriots without any liability, but he then would become an unrestricted free agent, free to command the type of guaranteed money he has agreed to surrender. This frees up cash for the Patriots to use on other players. New England needs the cash to help re-sign some of its own free agents such as Darrelle Revis, Devin McCourty, Nate Solder and Shane Vereen, amongst others.
