The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are poised to make a major decision this spring at the quarterback position, but could that include Tom Brady?
Future NFL Hall of Famer Tom Brady isn’t necessarily sold on completing his storied career with New England Patriots.
Brady, a six-time Super Bowl champion and a three-time league MVP, has been speculated by many league analysts to be interested in joining a potential contender and getting out of New England, due to reported frustrations with the organization Bill Belichik, in particularly.
Though most Tampa Bay fans have already ruled out the possibility of Brady signing with the Bucs, we’re going to play devil’s advocate and give five reasons why it could totally work.
5. Tampa Bay has the cap space
First of all, it should be noted that Tampa Bay is one of the few organizations that has the cap space to bring Brady in on a huge contract and still have some room to re-sign players and test the free agent market.
The Bucs have almost $92 million in projected salary cap space, which is good enough for third-most in the league behind the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins.
If Brady is looking for an organization that can afford him, Tampa Bay will be on the short-list. If it comes down to him deciding between a team like the Dolphins- which finished with just a 5-11 record- and the Bucs, he certainly could elect to head out to Tampa, especially with some of the ties that he and GM Jason Licht share.
