Tom Brady is reportedly headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after leaving the New England Patriots, according to reports from both ESPN and NFL Network.
This means the greatest quarterback in NFL history — arguably, at least — is coming to the NFC.
The Eagles aren’t scheduled to face the Buccaneers in the regular season this year. They are scheduled to host the Bucs at Lincoln Financial Field in 2021.
Of course, the Eagles could potentially face the Bucs even sooner if both teams qualify for the playoffs this season. Thanks to the new collective bargaining agreement, there will be seven playoff teams per conference.
It’ll be interesting to see just how much Brady, who turns 43 in August, still has left in the tank. I thought he looked pretty washed last season. Maybe an improved supporting cast in Tampa will make a difference for him. If that happens to be the case, well, that’s not ideal news for the Eagles.
