The photoshop experts can finally rest as we are now able to see Tom Brady in an actual Buccaneers uniform. After teasing the release on Monday, Tampa Bay showed off their biggest free agent signing in franchise history rocking their new uniforms for the first time since he inked his two-year, $50 million contract in mid-March.
The current COVID-19 pandemic derailed the traditional introductory press conference where Brady would have held up his new No. 12 jersey, but the wait is finally over to see the six-time Super Bowl champion rocking Bucs colors. Tampa has over 40 pictures of Brady in a variety of jersey combinations, but the initial four they debuted on social media has the quarterback rocking the pewter, white and red uniforms.
Warning: Patriots fans, you may want to avert your eyes. You won’t be able to unsee this.
Ready? Here’s Tommy.
We were able to get a quick glimpse of Brady wearing his Buccaneers helmet earlier this offseason as he was pictured working out with a few of his new teammates and the newest Madden NFL 21 trailer also gave us a brief look at what Brady will look like in the virtual world too. Still, there’s no matching seeing it all put together like it’ll be on Sundays for Tampa.
Brady’s arrival instantly busts open a Super Bowl window for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entering the 2020 season. Having weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard at the skill positions is a luxury that Brady will likely take full advantage of this season. When pairing that with a defense that ranked No. 5 in the NFL in defensive efficiency in 2019, good things are likely on deck for the Bucs.
