That did not take long.
Not even a day after Tom Brady announced he was leaving New England, he is now set to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady spent 20 years with the New England Patriots.
The NFL Network reported last night that Brady and the Buccaneers have reached “an agreement in principle.” According to the NFL Network and ESPN, the deal is worth around $30 million.
It’s unknown how long the deal is for.
Brady spent the last two decades with the Patriots, winning six Super Bowl titles, three MVPs, and being named to the Pro Bowl 14 times and being selected to the First Team All-Pro three times. He announced earlier Tuesday that he was going to take his football journey elsewhere.
The 42-year-old quarterback will join a Buccaneers team that features high-powered wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin along with tight end O.J. Howard. With Jameis Winston as quarterback last season, he had 33 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions along with 5,109 passing yards. Tampa Bay finished 7-9.
The Buccaneers would certainly benefit from a quarterback like Brady, who has an experienced championship pedigree. New England made the playoffs in 17 of the 20 seasons Brady was with the Patriots.
