Bradys status in the New England region won’t change. Yeah the initial shock of him leaving stung but as time moves on that will evaporate. The closest situation to this would be Montana going to kc in 93. Has that hurt his status in the Bay Area after retirement? No, he’s still considered a hero/legend over there. TB loves the game and has made it clear he wants to play as long as possible. He’s earned that right. Now both sides have taken the high road but it’s pretty clear BB was only willing to commit to TB on a year to year basis after the 2018 season. And I don’t blame him as TB is already past the point of when QBs are done. It’s obvious the Bucs wanted TB more with their multiyear contract. They guaranteed he would be playing till he was done with his age 44 season. TB has earned the right to go out on his terms.
