Tom Brady Preparing To Leave Patriots For Buccaneers?
Is Tom Brady preparing to leave the Patriots for the Buccaneers?
Coming into the offseason, Brady is an unrestricted free agent. That means he can sign with any organization he deems fit.
Up to this point, the future Hall of Famer has been linked to the Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans.
And of course there is always the chance that he simply opts to return to New England.
In a recent interview with NBC Sports, NFL insider Peter King suggested that there was a “sleeping giant” for Brady’s services that nobody was talking about.
That sleeping giant? Tampa Bay.
While appearing on the Dale & Keefe Show on WEEI, King noted that head coach Bruce Arians may opt to replace the departing Jameis Winston with Brady.
“Look, they have a pretty good offensive line and they’ve got two excellent receivers,” he said.
“They’ve got a really good young tight end, and they have a very imaginative head coach and offensive coordinator in the passing game,” King continued.
“I can’t tell you absolutely what they would do or what they are going to do, but I can tell you that they are fascinating to me because Bruce Arians isn’t coaching forever.
“I think he is one of those guys that all quarterbacks say, ‘Man, it would be cool to work for Bruce Arians’ because he’s such a fun offensive mind.”
In King’s mind, the Buccaneers have just as good a shot at Brady as anyone else contending for his services currently does.
“So, I guess I look at it and say when I think of Tampa Bay and Tom Brady, it makes as much sense to me as any of these other teams out here with the possible exception of the Chargers,” he said.
Up to this point Brady has given zero indication of where he plans to sign for next year.
It should be an interesting few months, that’s for sure.
