The New England Patriots will start the new season without TB12. Tom Brady decided to leave the Patriots after spending twenty years with the organization. We didn’t know a lot about his next move. But, it looks like TB12 has made a decision. His Instagram activity was enough for everyone to make a prediction. Tom Brady’s new contract will shock you.
Brady will in no way return to the Patriots. Fans rushed to his accounts to do a little research. Believe it or not, Brady started following Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
What does this mean? It means that the quarterback is all set to join their team.
According to recent reports, Brady will join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. TB12 agreed to a deal with the NFC South team according to several reports.
The NFL Network
reported Tuesday night that Brady and the team have reached an agreement in
principle. ESPN confirmed that the deal is worth $30 million.
How long will Brady stay with the Buccaneers? The team hasn’t made an official announcement. The free agency period is set to begin Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. ESPN’s report suggests that there is no signing date or announcement officially set up.
Tom Brady’s new contract is a surprise
TB12 spent twenty years with the Patriots. He won six Super Bowls, three MVPs. Brady was named to the Pro Bowl 14 times and the First-Team All-Pro three times. He decided to take his talents somewhere else.
“To all my teammates, coaches, executives and staff, Coach Belichick, RKK,
and the Kraft family and the entire organization,” he said. “I want
to say thank you for the past twenty years of my life and the daily commitment
to winning and creating a winning culture built on great values. I am grateful
for all that you have taught me — I have learned from everyone. You all have
allowed me to maximize my potential and that is all a player can hope for.
Everything we have accomplished brings me great joy and the lessons I have
learned will carry on with me forever. I couldn’t be the man I am today without
the relationships you have allowed me to build with you. I have benefited from
all you have given me. I cherished every opportunity I had to be a part of our
team, and I love you all for that. Our team has always set a great standard in
pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that.
“Although my football journey will take play elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments. I have been privileged to have the opportunity to know each and [every one] of you, and to have the memories we’ve created together.”
A tough job
TB12 will play with Evans and Godwin. Tight end O.J. Howard is also there. Jameis Winston was the quarterback last season. He had 33 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions with 5,109 passing yards. The team was 7-9.
Brady is a great addition to the team. Although they aren’t contenders, Brady may give the team championship strength. The Patriots made the playoffs in 17 of the 20 seasons TB12 was on the roster.
