Former New England Patriot Tom Brady has found his next destination with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to report published by the NFL.
“Brady has finalized an agreement to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a deal worth roughly $30 million per year,” NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
The Chargers and Bucs were the two most likely destinations for Brady. However, Brady will begin his 21st season with the Bucs.
Brady is a six-time Super Bowl champion, 14-time Pro Bowler, three-time first-team All-Pro and three-time MVP with the Patriots.
In Tampa Bay, they have not made the playoffs since 2007.

Brady will inherit the third-ranked total and scoring offense from 2019 with weapons he hasn’t seen in New England since the Randy Moss era. Tampa Bay is returning two 1,000-yard receivers in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, two pass-catching tight ends in O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate and a rising running back in Ronald Jones. Far more explosive than the Patriots attack of years past, Brady surely took Tampa’s talent into consideration when exploring his next destination.
The Buccaneers will assuredly not be bringing back Jameis Winston, the former first-overall pick and their starter for the last five seasons. An impending free agent, Winston wore out his welcome in Tampa Bay. As often as he threatened defenses with his aerial prowess, Winston threatened his own offense with mental errors.

The Bucs QB threw 88 interceptions to 121 touchdowns over his stay in Tampa Bay. In 2019, he led the league in attempts (626) and passing yards (5,109), but also led the NFL in interceptions, becoming the first QB to throw for 30 TDs and 30 picks in the same season…
Brady, on the other hand, won’t be a free agent for long. Entering his age-43 season, the future Hall of Famer won’t spend much time on the open market when the new league year begins and his move to Tampa Bay becomes officially official.
