Tom Brady Becomes a Tampa Bay Buccaneer
Written by laserteam on March 23, 2020
Tom Brady, the only N.F.L. quarterback to win six Super Bowls, is headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After telling the New England Patriots, the only club he has played for in his 20-year career, that he would not return to the team this week, Brady posted to Instagram a picture of his signing a new contract with Tampa Bay.
“I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the @buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do,” Brady wrote.
The deal with the 42-year old quarterback, which had been expected to be completed since reports leaked Tuesday, was confirmed in a statement released by the Buccaneers.
Brady will be paid a guaranteed annual salary of $25 million for two years, with $4.5 million in incentives each year, according to a person with knowledge of the quarterback’s plans who spoke on condition of anonymity and was not authorized to speak publicly. Brady, who restructured his contract several times to help the Patriots stay below the salary cap, has not previously earned more than $23 million in a single season.
