It seems that even when closing in on the age of 43, many players have a desire to play with arguably the greatest QB of all time. Changing the culture has always been a desire of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now it seems they have a doorway to that change. Players expressing a want to play in Tampa may not exactly be something new, but for the phones beginning to ring off the hook, that’s something different. Brady is going to attract lots of attention regardless of wherever he would have gone, and he earned that over his 20-year career.
In what seems to be a Super Bowl or bust season, having that kind of draw to the team is paramount in achieving that goal. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers still have a lot of work to do in putting together that type of football team, but now having Tom Brady’s name attached to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, high profile free agents certainly are attracted to the organization like a moth to the flame.
It will be an interesting next few weeks as we head towards the NFL Draft and beyond, and the fans’ excitement level is higher than I have seen in a very long time. You better get into that ticket line now.
