2. Brady put Tampa Bay back on the map
In a time where the Buccaneers had basically become forgotten losers in the NFL, Tom Brady elected to come to the franchise.
That means something.
Brady could’ve gone a number of places. He could’ve gone to Los Angeles. He could’ve stayed in New England. He could’ve expressed interest to head to Chicago and a number of other places. And they would’ve found a way to make it happen.
Despite this conception that he is ‘old and passed his prime,’ there is still no shortage of respect for Tom Brady. He put Tampa Bay back on the map and gave the franchise a much-needed boost in terms of respect and notoriety in a time where it was given none.
By just being here, Brady has already made the Buccaneers one of the hottest franchises in the league and has, in turn, made this team and organization better.
