WHY TOM BRADY JOINED THE BUCCANEERS
this brings to mind coach Belichick and mr. Kraft do you feel appreciated by them and do they have the appropriate gratitude for what you have achieved I plead the fifth more information has been released and reported on why Tom
Bradyleft the Patriots some of it includes some juicy details on what went down in the final hours before the decision was made we're gonna dive further into what happened and then we'll go over why he picked the
Buccaneersthis video is acting as a sequel to my last video so I suggest you watch the first part first link will be in the description as we talked about before one of the primary reasons for the split was the man
Bradywas always a link to Bill Belichick and if he watched the Patriots last year you could tell
Bradywas extremely frustrated with the offense and the players on it according to ESPN
Bradytold friends that he felt Belichick had taken the offense for granted because of how good it had been for so long
Bradytold NBC earlier this past season that he was the most miserable 8no quarterback in the NFL and from there he'd only get more miserable as the Patriots dropped four games in the final half of the season and lost in the wild-card round after that early elimination the gates had never been wider for someone to come in and swoop up the sixth time Super Bowl champ so why in the world would a

Bucs franchise history before Tampa Bay was even allowed to speak with
Bradydue to tampering rules they had already spent the year scouting him in case he actually became a free agent as we discussed in part one the Patriots receivers were playing a major role in the offenses drop-off in production Albert briefed Sports Illustrated said bucks head coach Bruce Arians saw where
Bradywas being held back the feeling was that with more speed and explosiveness around him which the Bucks could give him with Mike Evans Chris Godwin oj Howard and cam Breit
Bradywouldn't be forced to hold the ball like he had his last year in New England where he had slower skill position talent on-hand Rick shroud of the Tampa Bay Times added to this the Bucks read how
Bradywas frustrated by the way the Patriots were playing they heard the miked up conversations
Bradyhad on the sidelines about his receivers failure to gain separation so yes it appears
Bradywouldn't think that this offense is being taken for granted in Tampa Bay via flood had compiled a bunch of stats regarding these two offensive units New England receivers ranked to last an average separation at the time of the throw and 27th and draw percentage meanwhile the Bucs receivers ranked top five in a number of advanced stats and it's safe to say Oh Jay Howard and Cameron Breit beat out a 39 year old Ben Watson and Matt Lacoste even on their best day of the year as for comparing oline well that's a little tougher but...
according to ESPN's team pass block win rate the Bucs ranked 17th and the Patriots ranked 18th and sport radar had the two quarterbacks being pressured within two percentage points of each other so there isn't really any question that
Bradywill be fitting into an upgraded offense but
Bradystill did his research on that front Stroud said Aryans and Bucs GM Jason light were taken aback a bit by the level of research
Bradyhad done having thoroughly studied the Bucks offense and personnel while explaining then showing that he kept an eye on Aryans offense through the years
Bradyeven said during the Bucks press conference call that he'd been paying attention to Aryans offense for a long time this shouldn't come as too shocking I think all great quarterbacks and students of the game investigate and watch what other teams are doing to see if they can add anything to their own game what matters in this though is that
Bradylikes what he saw in Aryans offense even though the long-range game they play is quite a bit different than the quick decision-making one the Patriots play either way the Patriots have changed their scheme a lot over the years to fit their personnel which is something that doesn't get brought up enough so this transition for
Bradyisn't going to be anything like in normal first-time free agent Ariane's himself has said that the most important traits for a quarterback are the intangibles the brains and the physical skills with...
accuracy being the most important
Bradywould seem would agree with this approach saying football to him is about getting it to the guy who's open no matter what multiple reports have said Ariens is willing to tailor their scheme to fit
Bradyso we can add this willingness to change the offense on top of the love shown with NFL Network's kissing the Rings quote and of course the Bucks strong financial commitment the Patriots were still pushing for the year-to-year plan while the Bucks were offering multiple years and I'll say this a lot of commenters on the first video seem to be over rating just how much money mattered to
Bradynever talked about money in fact there was last on the list of priorities that his agent Donald Yi had to discuss when the Bucks call that noon on Monday as the NFL's free agent negotiating period began and brear backed this up to
Bradywanted a two-year commitment backed by guarantees he had a rough ask for 30 million per year but that was flexible Tampa Bay also gave
Bradymore of what he asked for which was a no trade clause and a no franchise tag clause and just a side note that means
Bradyis also preparing for the possibility of playing beyond this deal whether that be with the Bucs or not he's said in recent years that his target age is 45 and this plan would go right along with that as he would be 44 when this contract expires leaving one more year to do whatever he would like light said during the...
conference call that going after
Bradywas the team's number one priority and he knew
Bradywould be a perfect fit for the organization he also made sure to mention
Brady's transformative effect on the locker room - basically the Bucs are giving
Bradyeverything he wanted security respect and an offense that won't play second fiddle to the defense when it comes to acquiring Talent at least according to
Bradywhich brings me to my next point the Patriots are so tight on cap space that now their defense is losing talent to New England lost two key pieces this offseason in Kyle van Noy and Jamie Collins while the Bucks were able to retain Jason pierre-paul and Shaq Barrett so maybe
Bradyhad it a little backwards it appears Belichick is just funneling all the money into special teams now with more question mark surrounding the Patriots that's another win for Tampa Tom then there's the off the field considerations with
Brady's family now having moved to New York he wanted to stay on the East Coast instead of being in LA with a five six hour flight he'd be able to quickly jet on over to see his family and vice-versa he said it would be just a little bit of a change for the family which is just what you got to do when you have other opportunities for his brand TV 12 the LA market makes much more sense but in the end the longer he's able to play at a high level the better it is for his brand so I think the branding goes hand-in-hand with the football...
winning sells but if we do want to in lies further than maybe the Glazer family who owns the Bucs can provide help with international marketing they also own Manchester United and of help giant grow into one of the most global sports brands in the world they haven't quite done that with the Bucs but they'd certainly have international connections plus TB and TB is just a fantastic marketing slogan it's worth mentioning that GM Jason Light was a scout with the Patriots in the early 2000s although he and
Bradywere never close and if
Bradywanted something different than Bill Belichick then he sure got it with Bruce Arians do you would go to your car and tailgate with your friends in the parking lot and maybe drink a Crown Royal or two I don't think this is in the coach's manual I'm not sure if Belichick does this NFL teams analyze players to look for ones that will help them succeed
Bradywas doing the same thing but the other way around at this point in time it seems like the Bucs are the best fit for him he wants to be happy and succeed and that meant leaving the place he's called home for 20 years the Athletics Mike Lombardi who used to work for the Patriots had his own take calling
Brady's decision to leave just human nature what is remarkable and a tribute to those involved is that this parting of ways did not occur sooner most players eventually get tired of hearing the same voice the same message and not before lon tuned everyone out...
it's one of the reasons some coaches are more suited for college coaching over the NFL they need graduation a new crop of players to come in so that their messaging does not get stale so I think that's a testament to both Belichick and
