Tom Brady just led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their second Super Bowl, and he just earned his seventh Super Bowl ring. Brady has also played in ten Super Bowls altogether, and no one else has been able to accomplish that in the history of the NFL. Reports were surfacing that Tampa Bay and Tom Brady wanted to restructure Tom Brady’s two-year contract and maybe add a few more years to it. I guess we will find out if Jason Licht can negotiate to restructure a new contract for Brady’s future in Tampa Bay.
There will be a time, though, when Tom’s time will be up in the NFL, and hopefully, it will be on good terms. I hope it won’t be because of an injury or loss in Tampa Bay, but his health will come first with me. I still think Tom Brady has some unfinished business left before he retires, but I think he wants rings on every finger, and I believe he has what it takes to accomplish before his time is up, and I think he will be in Canton soon.
Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht seems like he has decided on who he wants to succeed Brady, and that is former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. We all know that Gabbert’s time in the NFL has not been good to him as he has played for the Jaguars, 49ers, Cardinals, Titans, and now the Buccaneers. Gabbert was the 10th pick in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft and started 14 games in his rookie season in 2011.
I will be optimistic about this, and I think Blaine Gabbert being around Tom Brady might have been the best thing for his career. Not every quarterback gets a chance to work with the greatest quarterback of all time in their career, and hopefully, Gabbert will get his confidence back by playing behind Tom. I guess we will find out when Tom’s time is to retire and Blaine’s time to take the helm.
