Tom Brady has a way of drawing some of the best talent in the NFL to where he is at. Hopefully this trend continues for the Buccaneers.

The door never closes in free agency on a team with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback. The Buccaneers have seen this on display for the last two seasons, and it is sure to continue as Brady looks to win his second Super Bowl in three years with the Bucs in 2022.

Brady has never been shy about recruiting. The best players usually do have some sort of sway on the market, and a team like the Bucs should give Hall of Fame talent like Brady the green light to go after anyone he thinks can help his Super Bowl chances.

We all saw this on display with Antonio Brown. Sure, the end was messy, but the win lasts forever, right?

As names like Julian Edelman start to disappear, it is time to revisit the possibility that Brady’s sway could bring future Hall of Famer Julio Jones to Tampa.

Jones should be an impossible addition for the Bucs, but impossible seems to happen every year with this team.

Tom Brady and Julio Jones with the Buccaneers? Overkill?

However, recent circumstances give some credibility to the notion that Jones could be more attainable than he would seem.

Jones obviously isn’t what he once was, and going unsigned for over a month is somewhat telling on his market. It looks like most teams are going to wait and see what they can get from a relatively deep wide receiver class, and Jones should start to get some calls at the end of the month or in early May after the draft ends.

Instead, Bucs fans can rest assured that Brady is going to leave his GM hat on and keep making pitches to one of the most talented pass-catchers of the past decade.

Jones has injury concerns and the Buccaneers do have plenty of good wide receivers right now, but there is something to be said about the idea that Jones tries to join a team to win a ring and prove he can stay healthy. The Bucs give Jones the best quarterback of his career, a pass-heavy offense with room to put together and impressive tape, and some of the easiest matchups of his career with a dominant duo at the top for opposing defenses to plan for.

Were the quarterback situation in Tampa different, Jones probably wouldn’t even consider the prospect of taking less money to be a role player. But Tom Brady does have a way of making any deal seem sweeter.

It still seems like an unlikely prospect, but Brady has been able to turn unlikely prospects into Buccaneers for two years now. Let’s just wait and see.
