Brady Signs With Bucs, Diggs Traded To Bills

Billy Woods | March 18th, 2020

It wasn’t long after quarterback Tom Brady announced his intentions to not re-sign with the New England Patriots that rumors began circulating that his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was all but finalized.

With Brady and the Buccaneers still working on the language of the contract, the quarterback is verbally committed to the Bucs.

Brady, who turns 43 before the start of the season, will be gifted an arsenal of weapons in Tampa Bay. The Bucs boast young talent like Mike Evans, who stands at six-foot, five inches tall, and would be the tallest receiver Brady would ever throw to. Speedster Chris Godwin broke onto the scene this past season, finishing with 1,333 receiving yards and nine receiving touchdowns.

This leaves into question the future of Jameis Winston, who led the NFL in passing yards this past season and created the “30-30 club”, throwing for 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in one season. After his Lasik eye surgery this offseason, hopes were high that Winston could shake old habits and become the star that he has longed teased.

Brady waited until after big name free agents were traded and signed before making his final decision. Deandre Hopkins was traded to the Arizona Cardinals for practically nothing and Stephon Diggs was traded to the Patriots division rivals Buffalo Bills for some draft picks. Brady was clearly frustrated that the Patriots organization didn’t make a run at any of the names mentioned.

Between Brady leaving the Patriots and the leaks of him signing with the Bucs, Philip Rivers, long-time quarterback of the San Diego, now turned Los Angeles Chargers, signed a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts.

This leaves the Chargers as a potential home for Winston. Rumors of Winston joining the Patriots have been circulating.
