Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady made his decision and posted Tuesday morning that he would no longer be playing with the New England Patriots, this caused a panic as it was official that Brady would be looking for a new team in the 2020 NFL season. Brady will go down as the greatest quarterback to ever play for the Patriots, and the way both parties handled things “publicly” thus far, has been civil.

Brady will now take a turn towards the Buccaneers and head coach Bruce Arians. The targets he will have include Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and O.J Howard. The Super Bowl will also be in Tampa Bay, so anything is indeed possible. Buccaneer fans, Arians, and Brady should all be excited about this new partnership.

Philip Rivers and others

With Philip Rivers sealing the deal with the Colts today on a 1-year/25 Million-dollar deal, the guys ponder if Rivers is even an upgrade at QB over Jacoby Brissett, who was having a solid 2019 before his injury. George and Eric also breakdown whether Teddy Bridgewater will get a real shot at becoming the franchise guy in Carolina after inking a 3-year/63 Million-dollar deal with the Panthers earlier in the day, as well as what the future holds at the QB position in New Orleans for 2021 and beyond; George also fires off a heavy-hitting take about the aging quarterbacks on the market, and makes a surprising suggestion for the Saints this offseason.
