Tom Brady has already put on a Buccaneers T-shirt. The star quarterback left the New England Patriots after two decades. Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he will stay there for at last two years. The Bucs will give him $60 million for two years. Aaron Rodgers shared his take on Brady and his decision to leave the organization.
The Green Bay Packers superstar discussed Brady’s departure during his appearance on the Golf Channel’s FORE-1-1 podcast with Chantel McCabe. As you may be guessing, Rodgers can’t really get used to the idea of seeing Brady put a different uniform. He’s been playing with the Patriots throughout his entire career. Well, he is a Buccaneer now.
“I think it is definitely strange,” Rodgers said. “It will be strange to not see him in a Patriot jersey. We played them a couple of years ago and thought that was probably the last time we’d play each other. Now, we get another chance. I think having him in the league is obviously great for the league and he’s a fantastic player. His career speaks for itself. Obviously, he still feels like he has a lot — he has something left to prove, which I don’t think he does. I think it is only to himself that he can still do it. What he’s done kind of setting the bar for the rest of us with his health and his work ethic and his longevity is something I think that is appreciated now and is going to be appreciated even greater when he’s done playing.”
Will Rodgers follow Brady?
Does this mean that Rodgers will leave his team at some point in his career? Maybe he will play with the London Jaguars. Well, we can’t really make a prediction on that topic.
Brady made a decision, and he is really proud of that. Brady earned the right to make this decision. He helped the Patriots win six Super Bowls. You can’t underestimate that. Let’s see how will the Patriots handle their Brady-less roster. Will Belichick get another quarterback in the NFL Draft? Will he move on with Jarrett Stidham?
