Tuesday started off with a bang in terms of NFL. We found out that the end of an era had fallen upon us, as Tom Brady made it clear he would not be returning for another season with the New England Patriots. We all knew that this day was going to come at some point in time; we just didn’t know when it would be. That day proved to be Tuesday, and it did not take too long before we found out exactly where he would be landing next.
That landing spot is going to be Tampa Bay, with the Buccaneers reportedly closing in on making the landmark move. Brady, at 42 years old, has played 20 seasons with the Pats, so to say that this will be a big change is an understatement for all. Head coach Bill Belichick and he, apparently, did not see eye-to-eye any longer and could not come to a solution together, so the Bucs have moved in and made the move. Despite Brady having a down year last season, the Pats still made the playoffs, something the Buccaneers could not sniff thanks to inconsistent quarterback play. They will be hoping that Brady’s arrival gives them a better shot at it, with the veteran QB making it known he wants to try and play to 45. We shall see, but it truly is a monumental day in the sport of football as we know it.
