Tom Brady, the most accomplished quarterback in NFL history, is as synonymous with the New England Patriots as any player with their organization. Now, the Patriots and Brady are parting ways, with Brady intending to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Tampa is the expected landing spot for Tom Brady barring anything unforeseen, sources tell me and @JeffDarlington.
There's no signing date or announcement officially set up, but Brady is expected to be a Buccaneer.

In his time with the Patriots, Brady won six Super Bowls in nine appearances, secured three NFL Most Valuable Player awards, four Super Bowl MVPs, as well as being named to 14 Pro Bowls and 5 All-Pro teams.
Despite the consistent dominance of the Patriots in the Brady-Belichick Era, the Patriots were ousted by the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs. Brady’s arrival will look to elevate Tampa Bay after a disappointing 2019 season for the Bucs, who finished the year 7-9.
