QB - TB
Buccaneers QB Tom Brady reportedly organized a two-hour throwing session on Tuesday morning at Tampa’s Berkeley Prep.
This was the first time Brady has ever been seen in an NFL helmet that was not the New England Patriots. According to Rick Stroud, “his arm looked live and he took advantage of the large collection of pass catchers to also get in some work on deep routes.” Brady was joined by WRs Mike Evans and Scotty Miller, TEs Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard, RB Dare Ogunbowale, and QBs Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin. He would guide his teammates through their routes and provide feedback in real-time. Given the current situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Brady had to get creative on how to work out and get familiar with his teammates during the off-season. Berkeley Prep has been closed to students and faculty during this time, but they kindly decided to remain open for the new QB and his offensive unit.
According to the NFL, an inquiry was made regarding QB Tom Brady’s visit to see his new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, and it was “determined there was no violation.”
This inquiry resulted from the initial story that Brady wandered into the wrong house. That house was owned by Leftwich’s neighbor David Kramer, who told TMZ, “I literally was just sitting here and I watch this tall guy just walk into my house…He just like dropped his duffel bags down on the floor and just kind of like looked up at me and I’ll never forget the look on his face. Brady was actually looking for his offensive coordinator so that he could pick up his new playbook and get to work. There are strict guidelines for off-season contact between players and coaches, and while Brady made headlines for walking into the wrong house, he was not in violation of league rules nor was he in violation of Florida’s current stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic. Now that Brady has the playbook in his hands, he’s well on his way to being a QB1 in his first season with the Buccaneers.
49ers GM John Lynch says the team had internal discussions about the possibility of signing Tom Brady this off-season.
However, the idea was squashed within a day or two. He elaborated, "When you're talking about one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time with Tom Brady, of course you're going to have some internal discussion. But within a day or two, Kyle (Shanahan) and I looked at each other and said, 'You know what, we really like what we have in Jimmy.' We love everything that he brings and we really believe it's a long-term answer". Garoppolo helped the 49ers reach the Super Bowl last season but was propped up by a dominant defense and an even more dominant rushing attack. It remains to be seen if he can truly help elevate the teammates around him.
Buccaneers QB Tom Brady has signed a two-year, $50M deal, fully guaranteed, with up to $9M in incentives with Tampa Bay. The contract also prohibits tags and trades.
Big guaranteed sum of money for the six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback. What’s interesting to note about the contract details is that it prohibits tags and trades, which hints at Brady having plans to play in the NFL even beyond the 2021 season. As long as he can stay healthy, there’s no reason to believe Brady will slow down any time soon.
It’s official, QB Tom Brady has posted on his Instagram that he will join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. It will be a two-year contract for Brady, worth $50M, all guaranteed, including up to $9M in incentives.
