Tom Brady Signs With Tampa Bay Buccaneers On 2-Year, $50 Million Deal

The wait is over. Tom Brady is officially a Tampa Bay Buccaneer after agreeing to a two-year deal worth $50 million. The deal was announced on Brady’s Instagram page Friday morning. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the $50 million is guaranteed and the contract includes $9 million in total incentives and prevents Brady from being tagged or traded.

After spending the last 20 seasons with New England, Brady seems ready to handle his next biggest challenge; bring a Super Bowl title back to Tampa Bay for the first time since 2003.

“Excited, humble and hungry … if there is one thing I have learned about football, it’s that nobody cares what you did last year or the year before that …you earn the trust and respect of those around through your commitment every single day,” Brady said on Instagram. “I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the Buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do. I have always believed that well done is better than well said, so I’m not gonna say much more — I’m just gonna get to work!”

The six-time Super Bowl champion has dominated the AFC East division for two decades and holds the record for most all-time regular season wins as a quarterback (219) and most postseason victories (30), according to CNN. Tampa Bay just became an instant contender with this signing.

“Tom is a proven champion who has achieved greatness on the field because he demands the best out of himself and his teammates,” said Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht in a statement. “I’ve known Tom since we drafted him in New England 20 years ago and through this process it became very clear that his desire to be a champion burns as strong today as it ever has. He possesses the type of rare natural leadership qualities that will immediately impact our entire organization.”

Brady will be coached by 67-year-old Bruce Arians who was hired last offseason. Arians is one of the most respected football minds in the NFL and has had previous success in the postseason with the Arizona Cardinals before retiring from coaching in 2017.

“Tom is the most successful quarterback in the history of our league, but what makes him so special is his ability to make those around him better,” Arians said in a statement. “I have had the privilege to work with some of the best passers in our game, and the characteristics they all possessed were the ability to lead and get the best out of their teammates. Tom is no different. He is a proven winner who will provide the leadership, accountability and work ethic necessary to lead us to our goal of winning another championship.”

Brady owns the record for most passing touchdowns in the regular season and playoffs combined (614) and is second all-time in passing yards with 74,571.
