Photo: Tom Brady Officially Signs With Buccaneers, Hungry For Next Chapter
Tom Brady said goodbye to the New England Patriots. Believe it or not, Brady is officially a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady shared a photo of himself signing his contract Friday morning. In his post, TB12 wrote that he is super excited. He is also humble and hungry at the same time.
“If there is one thing I have learned about football, it’s that nobody cares what you did last year or the year before that,” Brady wrote. “You earn the trust and respect of those around through your commitment every single day. I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the @buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do. I look forward to meeting all my new teammates and coaches and proving to them that they can believe and trust in me…I have always believed that well done is better than well said, so I’m gonna not gonna say much more – I’m just gonna get to work! #Year1”
Tom Brady goes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Brady signed a two-year deal with the team. We don’t have much information about the money.
“Tom is a proven champion who has achieved greatness on the field because he demands the best out of himself and his teammates,” general manager Jason Licht, a former Patriots scout and personnel executive, said in a team statement. “I’ve known Tom since we drafted him in New England 20 years ago and through this process it became very clear that his desire to be a champion burns as strong today as it ever has. He possesses the type of rare natural leadership qualities that will immediately impact our entire organization.”
Brady will join a team that has won just one title in 2002. They haven’t made the postseason since 2007. In other words, the Buccaneers don’t have a championship pedigree. That’s when Brady steps in. He will help the team win a title. Of course, the Buccaneers need to give Brady enough weapons.
How will the 42-year-old quarterback handle the new team? It’s a new rulebook. But, the Buccaneers will probably give him a chance to change the personnel.
