The Bucs were definitely in a spot of bother when Tom Brady decided to retire. A couple more players left the franchise and the air around Rob Gronkowski’s availability was not clear. However, Tom surprised everyone by announcing his comeback just a few weeks after calling it quits.
As soon as he came back, things started to look better for the Bucs and everyone started hoping that he will bring some more talent back to the team. In fact, not long ago, Brady had posted a video of himself working out with former Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. “Still the best way to get some cardio in,” Tom had captioned the video.
