Tom Brady is leaving the New England Patriots and will wear a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform in 2020. Can he change the narratives that drive him in Tampa?

For the first time in 20 years, Tom Brady will not don a New England Patriots jersey at the start of the NFL season.  Earlier this morning, Brady posted a goodbye to the fans thanking them for their loyalty and support the past 20 years.

It triggered a myriad of emotions from shock and dismay to “I told you so” all across Twitter.

Whether you’re a friend or foe of the Patriot Nation, Brady’s decision to leave New England will be talked about, scrutinized, and dissected seven different ways to Sunday. Was Brady finally fed up with head coach Bill Belichick and his rigid ways? Was it the lack of playmakers on offense? Was there strife over him taking less money to do what was right for the team, but the team not doing right by him when it mattered?

All of these questions will be debated and tossed about on sports radio in the days, weeks, and months ahead. While we may never get a definitive answer as to why Brady walked away from the Patriots, he’s doing it on his terms. In an era where many athletes are often forced out of their jobs, Brady wanted to control his narrative.

Owner Robert Kraft also wanted it to be know that had Brady wanted to do a deal, and Kraft would have obliged him and done a deal.

Burning bridges and going out guns a-firing was never Brady’s intention. He understood the dynamics of the relationship between Kraft, Belichick, and himself. He never angled for more attention, credit, or notoriety. He didn’t need for anyone to acknowledge him as the GOAT, we’ve done that all on our own.

At 43, with his 6 Super Bowl championships, 4 Super Bowl MVPs, 9 Super Bowl appearances, 3 NFL MVPs, and 5 All-Pro nods. Along with a laundry list of more accomplishments, he felt the only thing to set him apart from all the others is to attempt the unthinkable and win a Super Bowl away from New England.

Winning a Super Bowl without Bill Belichick would cement Brady as the unequivocal all-time greatest quarterback in NFL history. He would be the second quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two separate teams ( Peyton Manning being the first, though the Denver defense is what won them the Super Bowl).

He would be the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, and he would be the only quarterback to win a Super Bowl in three different decades. When you have accomplished all the Tom Brady has in your career, you need to find something to push you further than you’ve gone before. That is the TB12 way.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Brady has an agreement to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The deal is believed to be $30 million per year. Can Brady take the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl and change the narrative?

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be interesting to read content from other authors and use something from other web sites.
