With a free agency market that has been as chaotic and headline-grabbing as the NFL’s has been the past week, one might think that the Buccaneers wouldn’t continue to be in the limelight after the Tom Brady news. You would be wrong.

With Brady’s return, so too came his magnetic ability to pull in talent from across teams in the NFL. So great was the “aura” of Brady that even retired players seem keen to play with the GOAT.

That fact became even clearer after Brady posted a video today throwing passes to none other than his favorite slot receiver during his tenure in New England, Julian Edelman.

Edelman, who has been retired since 2021, mostly as a result of nagging knee injuries, appeared to be moving quite well in the short video.

While nothing is certain these days, Edleman wouldn’t be the first ex-Patriots player to return from retirement to play alongside Tom Brady.

Either way, Tom Brady is finding a way to get work in still helps the Buccaneers. Workouts like this keep Brady on the top of his game and make sure he is ready to go when the rubber meets the road in a few months. Finding a way to rope Edelman into playing for the Bucs would only be the icing on the cake.

Similar to Edelman, Rob Gronkowski also initially retired in large part due to lingering injuries. But who knows, maybe after a year of rest and recovery like Gronkowski, Edelman may begin to feel like he could get back out there and perform at a high level like his old teammates.

After the major impact Gronkowski had on the Bucs the last two seasons, Edelman may see signing with the Bucs as his best chance at another ring as well as one last season with his two good friends.

Whatever the reason for his return, the Bucs would be foolish not to sign Edleman. Even if he is 70%-80% of what he used to be, he would still prove a valuable weapon in the Bucs’ offensive arsenal and would add extra depth in case of injuries.

It may be Tampa Bay, but this would certainly be a time Buccaneers fans shouldn’t mind their team looking a little like the Patriots of old if it means another ring.
