The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on their summer “vacations” until training camp starts in late July. Players and coaches tend to spend this time with family, do charity work, and in some cases, hold football camps for youth leagues.
Buccaneers’ cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting is one of the players that holds youth football camps. The “SMB Champ Camp” is held at Chippewa Valley High School in Michigan. During his camp, Murphy-Bunting talked about Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady’s return,
“That’s TB12, that’s my guy. So, I’m definitely happy to have him back. I don’t want him to ever retire. But obviously, that’s not gonna happen,” Murphy-Bunting stated to WXYZ Detroit’s Jeanna Trotman. “Tom, I’m gonna make sure you see this video because I’m gonna personally send it to you. Don’t leave us. Please stay with us forever. And I love you, man.”

Murphy-Bunting is probably speaking for all of his Buccaneers colleagues when he makes that request, as well as the entire fanbase. Brady led the team to it’s second Super Bowl title in his first season with the Bucs. Murphy-Bunting undoubtedly contributed to the team winning the Lombardi Trophy as well. His contributions to the Buccaneers’ first three playoff victories included interceptions, and in Super Bowl LV, he finished with six tackles and one pass defended.
As his contract year approaches, he will have the opportunity to secure the starting nickel cornerback job, but veteran Logan Ryan, who joined the team in March, will be also be in that discussion.
