    He is special in the short term, not long term. Teams have to be willing to go all in now for the short term, not long term and/or want to put fans in the seats. As a team, Tampa is ideal for Brady in terms of offensive talent if not in terms of location. Not every team is willing to do that or has the pieces in place for it to make sense.

    Bad planning then. $13.5m for TB and $4.5m for AB. Expenses we could do without.

    The AB fiasco aside, the Brady cap conundrum was cast in stone when for whatever reasons only a one year deal got done in trying camp last year. Had BB been willing to go longer term with the aging QB, we'd be looking at re-tooling around TB again.
    It's fair to say that despite nuances, Tom has really exceeded most folks' expectations for a player his age. He takes care of himself well off season, really works diligently on pliability (jokes aside) and the league has helped with it's "Don't hurt the QB" rules.

    Yup, 48 hours later...I have decided this:

    "Rocky V" never happened, right?

    I am just going to pretend that Brady retired.....and look forward to us retiring his jersey at the Pats HOF in 3 years. I am going to pretend the Bucs QB is just some dude.....

    Idk if it’s sour grapes on the guy’s part or I just don’t know. The funny thing about brady is that his numbers are not that far off from aaron Rodgers. Brady just threw 4 more interceptions.

    If I'm Gisele I get REALLY concerned about the 'bromance' if Edelperson goes to Tamper.

    Does anyone else think a James White trade to Tampa makes a lot of sense? I don't know about Edelman...White fits the profile though. Maybe a year, two tops left at a high level, and the Patriots prefer to go on the cheap and by rookie deals.

    Sure, if the other 10 guys are making the same reads.

    I wish TB12 well in Tampa and am looking forward to watching him play, but it won't be an automatic fit.

    It'll be interesting to see how well the younger players used to Winston will take to being held accountable by a man old enough to be their father.

    I'm not saying it won't happen, but I am saying some of the players on his offense may not be able to do what TB12 wants them to do and may get iced out, or may not be happy about being held accountable.

    Also it seems TB12 will be the offensive coordinator in all but name only. I think he will want/try to get some former NE coaches already up to speed on the system to come to Tampa, otherwise I don't see how there are enough hours in the day for TB12 alone to change their offense to a new system.

    And from what I read the Pats offered far lower than 25 million per year.

    Please let me know what position on offense Tampa needs to fill with free agents. They already have what is most likely the best wide receiver duo in the entire league. They have a 2 good TEs and OK running backs. They have a good interior O-Line and in every mock draft, even before Brady agreed to go to TB, they are expected to select one of the top offensive tackles in the draft. So they just don't have a lot of glaring holes on offense other than QB. If they end up signing a guy like Sanders that will be a very, very tough offense to stop. On defense they have some holes, but defensive players don't sign with a team because of the QB. And most free agents sign for the money, not because of the other players.

    That's just not true. Brady's past FA history proves otherwise. He wasn't interested in any team not interested in him.

    So no deal in TB because Dallas is in the mix now? They didn't think Brady was serious about leaving but now they know he is, they can rescind franchise tag on Dak and give Brady his $25M a year for 2 in Dallas. That would be a bigger bang for Brady than going to the backwater TB. Works for Brady as will be incredibly in spotlight, solid team
