Buccaneers players believe that Tom Brady is done with Tampa. Nothing is holding the GOAT to the Buccaneers anymore.

It’s almost a given that if Tom Brady does play another season he will be with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. For a time this news would have shaken Tampa Bay to the core. Now when you ask the question it’s met almost with a “Meh.” However, if you ask the other players of the current Tampa Bay Buccaneers players out say Tom Brady is done with Tampa. They note a few key points that say that he is done and over with the Buccaneers.

Buccaneer teammates have been speaking anonymously so take it for what it’s worth, but they are claiming that if you actually take time to watch Tom Brady he sounds like a guy who is ready to say goodbye. Tom Brady has been reported saying he has “no intention” of playing for the Bucs next season. Speaking to the Toronto Sun one anonymous Buccaneers player said “I’d be surprised if he’s back,” one said. “He sounded like a person saying goodbye for good,” another added. The abysmal loss to the Cowboys during the wildcard slot seemed to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Players and fans of Tom Brady have noticed a major demeanor change in the QB. Whether it was coming back from what seemed like retirement or the divorce that plagued him at the beginning of the season we can all admit that Brady has not been himself. Some have pointed out a change in leadership of the team with the replacement of Head Coach Todd Bowles from Bruce Arians but this can be dismissed with still having former Offensive Coordinator Byron Leftwich. 

The players are probably closer than anyone to Tom at this moment, and we need to take what they say into account. Buccaneers players say that Tom Brady is done with Tampa. Nothing is holding him here anymore. [Source Toronto Sun]
