The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been active this off-season in bolstering their chances to reclaim the top spot in the NFL.

Each move, including re-signing Chris Godwin and Carlton Davis, stealing Russell Gage from the rival Atlanta Falcons, and bringing in former and now current Tom Brady teammates Shaq Mason and Logan Ryan, among others, has been made with one sole purpose; winning.

This really could be Brady’s last year with the Bucs, and they can’t waste his return by not winning the Super Bowl.

Let’s be honest about things. Few people besides the friends and families of Blaine Gabbert and Kyle Trask and every opponent on the Bucs schedule wanted to see them as the starting quarterback in Tampa Bay. Thankfully, that wouldn’t be the case until 2023 at the earliest.

That does bring us to the present and 2022, though, and Tom Brady almost didn’t come back. He will turn 45 in August, and though he appears to truly be ageless, no one at One Buc Place should want to tempt fate.

The fact that Brady had left the team and the league should be a loud warning that there is a possibility the next time he says he’s leaving will be the last time he says he’s leaving.

The Buccaneers can’t possibly blow another season of his greatness and him bailing them out at the most important position in sports by failing to get him what he came back for, which is his 8th Lombardi Trophy. That is the only way Brady’s 3rd year with the Bucs can end in Glendale, Arizona, on February 12, 2023.

Could the G.O.A.T. come back for a 4th season with the Bucs after that? Sure, because as he has shown time and time again any and everything is possible. Still, if 2022 is his real swan song, you know Brady will do everything he can to get back on top and the Bucs can’t waste his return by not following suit.
