3. Tampa Bay Buccanneers
The Buccanneers’ swoop for Tom Brady was one of the most exciting moves of the offseason. From a commercial standpoint, it makes perfect sense. But on the playing field, it could be a different story. First of all, Brady is almost 43 and coming off a poor year by his standards.
That just won’t stand up in Florida now. Their fans expect them to compete with the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South and push to become the first team to play in a Super Bowl in their own stadium. Meanwhile, Brady has to adapt to Bruce Arians’ preferred style of play. The goodwill could vanish quickly.
