WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Tom Brady has agreed to join Tampa Bay Buccaneers according to several reports.
- With a $30 million a season deal, Buccaneers were the only team that have formally made him an offer. Though Los Angeles Chargers were reportedly interested, the team did not push through.
- Fans are looking forward to seeing Brady donning the Buccaneers uniform, hoping he would last for a number of seasons, the least.
NFL quarterback Tom Brady’s career is moving forward with a $30 million per season deal as he joins Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The announcement was made by Tom Brady himself on Tuesday morning, after 20 years with the New England Patriots where he won a record of six Super Bowls.
It was reported by Rapoport that Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the only team who have formally made an offer to Brady.
The move will be looked back on as an unusual transfer to a new home nearing his retirement, just like all-time legends Willie Mays with New York Mets, and Michael Jordan with the Washington Wizards
Adam Schefter of ESPN said Buccaneers is the “expected landing spot for Tom Brady barring anything unforeseen.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers have always been interested to have Brady on their team. Coach Bruce Arians is recalled to have mentioned Brady by his first name at the NFL scouting combine.
This would mean that fans, especially in the future, will always remember Brady with the Buccaneers team, particularly when they see him in a Buccaneers uniform.
Aside from the Buccaneers, Los Angeles Chargers had also reportedly given interest for Brady, but the team did not have a chance on the Buccaneers.
Admittedly, Arian’s offense style is not what Brady is accustomed to. So all things considered, Arians is going to change, and adapt his scheme with Brady’s capabilities.
Having said this, many fans are excited to see Brady donning the Buccaneers uniform, hoping he would last for a number of seasons, the least; especially that Tampa Bay Buccaneers is booked to play at New England in 2021.
