Tom Brady’s Demands For Buccaneers Revealed

Tom Brady’s demands for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been revealed.

On Tuesday morning, the 42-year-old announced on social media that he was leaving the New England Patriots.

“Our team set a great standard in pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that,” he said in a statement.

“Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments.”

A few hours later, reports emerged that he would be headed to Tampa Bay.

Although details of his new deal have remained scarce up to this point, the general framework of the agreement has started becoming clearer.

Basically, Brady’s decision in the end came down to the Los Angeles Chargers and Buccaneers. Because of a variety of reasons, including how close Tampa Bay is to New York City, Brady opted for the Buccaneers.

According to Albert Breer, Brady had multiple conditions for his new deal. Among them, the future Hall of Famer is looking for $30 million annually over two years – mostly backed with guarantees.

While he wants $60 million for his new contract, Brady did leave the door open for financial flexibility in order to allow his new team maximum opportunity to win a title.

As of Wednesday evening, the contract between Brady and Tampa Bay had not yet been signed. Both sides were still working out the details.

That said, one way or another, the contract is expected to move forward with no hitches at some point over the next 24 hours or so.
