During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the question arose why despite winning all of the time and six Super Bowl rings, he isn't the highest-paid player in the NFL.

"Winning has been a priority, and my wife makes a lot of money," says Brady.

Brady is actually the 20th highest-paid player, raking in $20,500,000 per contract. Meanwhile, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is currently #1earning $35,000,000 per contract.  But according to Business Insider, Brady has reportedly turned away at least $60 million in contracts for the sake of the New England Patriots hiring better players.
