After several years of settling in mediocrity, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finally on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time in 13 years. Their newfound success can largely be credited to their star quarterback in Tom Brady who also helped bring along a handful of tenured veterans to help the team's title aspirations.

As per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Buccaneers are aiming to prioritize bringing back the six-time Super Bowl champion at the helm next season more than anything else on their list. His return could eventually pay dividends for the team both on and off the field moving forward.

During this season, the Buccaneers failed to maximize the value of their star-studded roster due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. They might potentially get a chance to do so come 2021 as restrictions in stadiums are expected to be more relaxed with teams being able to allow more fans to come in on gamedays.

Despite the new faces, the Buccaneers' campaign in 2020 hasn't been perfect especially with their ongoing two-game losing skid and lopsided losses against fellow title contenders. However, their projected success by the end of the regular season and in the playoffs will still be far greater than anything else that they have achieved in recent memory.

Tom Brady has also been relatively quiet throughout the season as he kept mum on his plans moving forward. However, his silence could serve as a double-edged sword as the same thing also happened back in 2019 when he was still a player for the New England Patriots which eventually saw him leave during the offseason.

With a 7-5 record through Week 12 proceedings, the Bucs are looking to lock in their playoff seat as they aim to end a 13-year postseason drought. However, being able to bring back Brady next season will prove to be more valuable for the team as they hope to remain in contention for the years to come.
