    This was the kind of signing Brady was tired of.

    Now that Brady isn't being signed team can afford to sign "talent" like this to surround ___________ with said "talent."

    Is this ^^^^ about right?

    Seemingly nice depth signing. Cheap but experienced and looks to be flexible enough to do a couple of things.

    Incorrect. They're broke with no money to spend.

    Using the franchise tag and not getting Brady signed (and thus having his full cap impact) has certainly put a hurting on the cap space, at least for the moment.

    For what it's worth the Cardinal fans seem to rate him as having a lot of potential, but just couldn't stay healthy.

    I do not understand it. When it is commonly known Tom is gone BB brings a superstar WR. If only That move happened a few days ago maybe Tom would stay.

    Thought it must because his ego, not lack of talent, he wanted to be among the highest paid that goes along with his GOAT status, and going to the Bucs would satisfy that need. He doesn't like the OTA's and will have to learn a different offensive system + unfamiliarity with their O coordinator.

    It is about money, always about money.. it seems as though Tampa is offering a boat load of cash, and #12 may go over the $300,000,000 total NFL Cash marker..

    Why sacrifice his immense popularity and adulation in NE to go to Tampa Bay??

    Another school of thought is that Tampa Bay and Tom Brady have the same initial.. TB to TB???;);)

    Obviously a move geared toward saving money in order to get Brady to sign.

    Since this is his fifth year in the league, that’s highly doubtful. Plus, he’s not white. So he can’t be the next Edelman or Welker. Maybe the next Patten, though.

    Arians isn't dumb, he will tailor his system to accommodate Brady. Arians has the reputation of being a QB guy- he has always solicited input from his QB's (Palmer, etc).

    He just had the bad luck of being shackled with Winston who has the same competitive drive and fire as a sack of potatoes.
