It’s About To Get Ugly For The Buccaneers


Well, apparently this time it’s “for good.” Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady has officially retired via a video he tweeted out this morning stating that he’s stepping away from the game.

GOAT In A Booth

After the greatest career in NFL history, Brady will hang up his cleats and head to the booth to start cashing in on a massive 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX to become part of their broadcast team.

So, what does that mean for the Buccaneers? Well, they are now moving on to the really crappy part of this deal they made with the Devil to get Brady here and surround him with veteran talent.

Dead & Voided

They’ve got a boat load of dead salary cap space, no extra draft picks, and a lot of aging veterans. Tampa Bay is not a youthful group, and there are going to be some dark days with some hard decisions to be made, so buckle up.

Any and everyone could be traded or cut since the front office will need to do its best to start building for the future.

But, Maybe

Or, maybe the Bucs just say screw it and trade for Aaron Rodgers or Lamar Jackson, continue to use voidable years, and win this awful division a few more times.

But more than likely, there’ll be some lean years ahead for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At least this means ticket prices will hopefully go down, right?
