1. Tom Brady

Tom Brady doesn’t need the 2020 season for financial gain and he certainly doesn’t need the season to cement his legacy.

So, why is he out the top of our list? It simply has to do with how bad he wants to play this coming fall.

Brady has never been more motivated than he is right now. He has never wanted to prove himself and compete for a championship more than he is trying to do currently. Brady didn’t come to Tampa Bay to cruise through his final few years. He came ready to compete. We can see that through his commitment this offseason.

If the season is canceled, Brady grows a year older and one step closer to retirement.

Does that ‘competitive fire’ truly stay if he’s forced to wait an entire year to play?

Next. These four Bucs opting out would mean no playoffs. dark

If Tom Brady wants to get to the postseason and compete for a championship, it has to happen this year. He doesn’t have time to waste and certainly doesn’t want to wait even longer to get on the field.
