Tom Brady has moved on from his 20-year contract with the New England Patriots and has joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 42-year old’s contract with the Buccaneers consists of a two-year deal worth $50 million, with the entirety of the contract guaranteed, according to Tadd Haislop from Sporting News.com.
Brady could also earn $9 million in incentives if certain objectives are met in the next two seasons.
The one demand Brady had when entering the team was that he wanted to get every player’s personal phone number, in order to get to know the team on a personal level.
Because of Brady’s departure, the Patriots have a great role to fill, and it will be interesting to say the least to see who takes the spot of the GOAT.
The question is, what move is the Patriots going to take?
It has been a month since Brady left, and there has not been a definitive plan as to who will fill the role.
Besides the possibility of drafting a current NFL quarterback, it seems that they are leaning more heavily on drafting a rookie.
There are five specific players they have their eye on according to Boston.com.
Nate Stanley, Iowa, Jacob Eason, Washington, James Morgan, Florida International, Jake Fromm, Georgia, and Anthony Gordon, Washington State.
The Patriots have plans to cultivate the new player to train them to become a strategic weapon for the team. Each potential player shows promise and uses the strategies they are looking to draft.
Filling the shoes of arguably one of the best quarterbacks will be a challenge, to say the least…
It is a story that will continue to keep fans and non fans wondering, what will happen next?
Lets see what the Patriots and Belichick pull off, because they rarely disappoint.
