Tom Brady was feeling generous at the Kentucky Derby this past weekend.

The New England Patriots quarterback and six-time Super Bowl winner bet his former teammate Danny Amendola $100,000 he couldn’t hit a far-away target with a small football.

Yes, he casually was willing to drop $100,000 on whether or not Amendola had the arm to hit a target with a small ball. (RELATED: Julian Edelman Tells Danny Amendola To Get Off Instagram)

The current Detroit Lions receiver didn’t get the job done and didn’t win the money. Watch the video below.

You know you’ve made it in this world when you’re willing to drop $100,000 on a bet over throwing a small football. That’s the kind of money most people couldn’t dream about having.

Imagine making so much cash that $100,000 is like throwing $10 in a trash can. Luckily for Brady, his wife Gisele is absolutely loaded, and the couple has an estimated net worth of just under $600 million.

While $100,000 might be a ton of cash for most people, I’m not sure a guy like Brady would miss it too much.

Brady didn’t have to pay up, but the fact he was willing to even risk it is pretty damn impressive. I guess that’s what happens when you win six Super Bowls. You get paid the kind of money most people wouldn’t see in 15 lifetimes.

We’ll have to see if the NFL star is willing to throw down any big wagers heading forward. I would watch the hell out of a show where Brady just walks around betting people money to do random things. That’d be must-see television.
