The bond between an offensive lineman and his quarterback is almost unbreakable. The two almost always work together in tandem during games. When a lineman looks good, the QB looks good, and vice versa. So when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reunited Tom Brady with one of his former linemen, you best believe the big guy is going to be ecstatic.

Shaq Mason, one of Tom Brady's offensive linemen from the Patriots, was traded to the Buccaneers in the offseason. Speaking to reporters, the ex-Pats OL expressed his happiness to be able to play with his old quarterback. (via Sirius XM Radio)

“I was with him for my first five seasons so it’s great just being back with him and having a familiar guy behind me,” Mason said. “He demands the best out of everyone around him and you know what you’re getting out of him day in and day out. I couldn’t ask to be around a better guy.”

Brady himself will also be excited to work alongside Mason in Tampa Bay. In seven seasons in New England, Mason allowed just 13 sacks and committed only 16 fouls. Protecting the best pocket passer in league history has been the Buccaneers' priority since Brady's arrival, and they continue to do that with this move.

The Buccaneers are looking to make a big splash in the 2022 NFL season after dropping to the LA Rams in the playoffs last season. Tom Brady's return obviously helps them, but so does their new additions to their line. We'll see how they stack up against some of the best in the NFC next season despite losing Rob Gronkowski to retirement.
