The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a potential open tight end slot with the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. Tom Brady took to Twitter to talk with a young NBA stud about a possible solution for the Buccaneers.

Anthony Edwards, the first overall draft choice in the 2020 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, has been everywhere lately, he co-starred as Kermit Wilts in the Adam Sandler movie Hustle and crushed by the way, and now he set Twitter ablaze. Edwards flexed his freakish athletic ability by tweeting a video of him throwing deep balls like Uncle Rico and catching another deep ball.

He’s got a point. That outside shoulder deep ball was Brady-esque.

Speaking of Brady, the GOAT of GOATs responded to the tweet by telling the rising NBA star that perhaps he chose the wrong sport, which is funny considering Edwards started out as a football player, which was his original favorite sport.

Brady has become even more of a legend than he already was thanks to his growing social media presence, and this is just one in a plethora of examples. Here’s where it gets juicy for Bucs fans though. Edwards doesn’t live under a rock, so he’s privy to the news of Gronk’s retirement, and the fact that the Buccaneers may be in the tight end market.

Brady would retweet this reply. Now obviously, this has about a 1% chance of happening, and that’s a gentlemen’s percentage estimate. However, since we’re in the dog days of Summer we’ll take what we can get. Ex-basketball players have a long history of NFL success, particularly at tight end, so while we wait for training camp to commence, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little fantasy of Tom Brady throwing passes to Anthony Edwards for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Again, it won’t happen, but man would it be fun.
