NFL Legend Emmitt Smith Talks Buccaneers’ Brady’s Greatness


Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady gets a lot of respect from a lot of people. From former players and coaches to media types to celebrities.

Emmitt Smith, the Hall of Fame running back and the NFL’s all-time leading rusher, believes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signal-caller still possesses the exceptional qualities that have made him arguably the best football player of all time, according to a Reuters interview.

Brady has been at the top of the NFL news cycle since announcing his return for his 23rd season. “It’s kind of hard to walk away when you are that elite. He is taking care of his body, his mind. He’s still sharp, still throws the ball well, still has arm strength,” Smith stated to Reuters. “(He has) a lot of things that a lot of young quarterbacks don’t have these days,” stated Smith. “So yeah, it’s kind of hard to walk away from the game when you’ve been involved with this business a long time.”

Brady and the Buccaneers have the second best odds to win this year’s Super Bowl. When you factor in that the Buccaneers may have actually gotten better on offense this offseason, it’s easy to see why Brady came back.
