Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator, Byron Leftwich met with reporters today over a Zoom meeting to give his insight on quarterback Tom Brady. The Buccaneers already changed their offense to 12 personnel, to cater to the tight ends. Now, Leftwich is getting ready to work further with Brady.
“You always want the quarterback to be as comfortable as possible,” Leftwich said of his future collaboration with Brady.
Leftwich said that he and the other coaches have been getting all the information to Brady. And Brady has been giving his feedback, picking the right plays and formations that will lead successful.
“Getting everything to Tom, that’s what we do every year, and we’ll use a lot of his input.” Leftwich said.
Fans should be excited to know that the six-time Super Bowl champion will have a big role behind the scenes. Leftwich is making it clear that he and Brady will work together this offseason to construct the right playbook.
“He’s been somewhere for 20 years. It’s like going to a new job after you’ve been there for 20 years, so it’s just different,” Leftwich said of Brady’s moving out of New England.
The Buccaneers are in a unique position; they have one of the greatest quarterbacks running one of the league’s best offenses. Plus, they have one of the best tight ends in the NFL with Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs will help Brady learn the playbook and build upon it.
Brady and the Bucs sound like a match made in heaven. Both Brady and Leftwich are learning from each other. The Bucs had the weapons, now they’ve gotten even more dangerous with Brady.
