TOM BRADY and his Super Bowl-winning side pocketed just £110,000 each for their amazing underdog success.
The legendary quarter-back helped inspire the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over The Kansas City Chiefs in Miami on Sunday.
It was Brady's seventh Super Bowl ring meaning he now has more Super Bowl wins than any team in history.
So it is no wonder the Buccaneers forked out £36m to offer him a two-year deal in 2020.
Therefore the 43-year-old's latest winnings are just a mere drop in the ocean in his inflating bank account.
According to the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, each member of the winning team receive a $150,000 (£110,000) bonus.
That is a £14,500 increase from last year when the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers.
The Chiefs this year received $75,000 (£55,000) which is still a $10,000 increase on the previous year.
Brady's opposite number on the night, Patrick Mahomes, is tipped to take the mantle from the legendary American and signed a staggering $500m contract last year.
But Mahomes was given nightmares by the veteran who was also named Super Bowl MVP for the fifth time.
After the contest, Brady said of the victory: "I'm so proud of all these guys. Everything we dealt with all year.
"We came together at the right time, we knew this was going to happen tonight. We ended up playing our best game of the year.
"I'm not making any comparisons (to any other wins). Every year is amazing and this team is world champions forever, you can't take it away from us."
