New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady would rather not talk about his restructured contract other than to say it's all about helping the team be successful.
Brady signed a three-year, $27 million deal week that, according to reports, included a $30 million signing bonus and extends his contract through the 2017 season. The new deal gives $15 million of cap space to the Patriots for the next two seasons.
"I really do just want to win, and that has and will continue to be the reason that motivates me and is the biggest factor in my decision-making process," Brady said in an email to WEEI radio in Boston.
The Patriots have yet to comment publicly on Brady's contract. Brady had avoided addressing it until Wednesday.
"I don't want to talk about this on the radio or anywhere else for that matter," Brady continued in the email to WEEI. "Athletes are always talking about money at a time when everyone else is struggling so badly to make it. We all make way more than our fair share. And I just think it reflects poorly on myself and my teammtes."
