Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers Contract Revealed
Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers contract has been revealed. It is quite impressive, to say the least.
On Tuesday morning, Brady announced in a social media post that he was leaving the New England Patriots after 20 years. The news came as a shock to many people, even though the revelation probably should not have been totally unexpected.
Brady had been dropping hints for months now that he was planning on exploring what else is out there, and according to multiple reports, the Patriots did not make a particularly strong play to retain him.
If all goes according to plan, Brady and the Buccaneers will make things official on Wednesday.
According to ESPN NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington, the term of Brady’s new contract is unknown at the moment. However, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Brady will be getting “roughly” $30 million annually.
To be clear: Former #Patriots QB Tom Brady has an agreement in principle to join the #Bucs, source said. It is believed to be roughly $30M per year.

To put that number in perspective, earlier this week the New Orleans Saints inked Drew Brees to a contract extension that will pay him $50 million over two years.
With this most recent move, the Buccaneers are officially closing the door on the Jameis Winston Era. At the moment is unclear where the former Florida State product will end up, but it most certainly will not be in Tampa Bay come next season.
