The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquired superstar quarterback Tom Brady in free agency this offseason. It’s a two-year deal worth $50 million.
So it looks like they’ll be getting at least two seasons of Brady before he decides to hang it up. Still though, it’s going to be weird seeing the quarterback in a uniform that isn’t a New England Patriots one. He spent the first 20 years of his career with that franchise.
Now it’s time to start moving on though. And there will be no better way to do that than for the season to start.
We’re still a little ways away from that though. So for now, we’ll have to do with talking about it.
When the season finally does roll around though, what will Brady do? What would Brady and the Buccaneers have to do in order for it to be a successful 2020?
Lucky for them it’s a two-year deal. Because if this was a one-year deal, it would be safe to assume Brady is retiring after 2020. That would mean the only way for it to be a successful season would be to win a Super Bowl.
Otherwise, what would have been the point of Brady going to the Buccaneers in the first place?
Instead though, it looks like they are getting at least two seasons with the quarterback. That gives them some leeway with 2020. It also makes this article much longer. Because if it was a one-year situation, we would’ve ended the article after saying “win a Super Bowl”.
Now we get to keep going though. The end game is absolutely a Super Bowl, and if they can achieve that in 2020 all the power to them.
And to be honest, that’s definitely Brady’s goal: He’s going to Tampa Bay believing they can win it all in the upcoming season. They might not be all that far off either.
But that’s not the only way this could be a successful season for the new pairing.
For Brady and the Buccaneers to have a successful 2020, they need to take the proper steps to setting up that Super Bowl in 2021.
That means Brady gets on the same page as his teammates. He figures out a connection with the likes of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate. Once they all start connecting, we could see some dangerous combinations.
Seriously, who isn’t excited to see Brady connect with Evans? That should be a thing of beauty.
It also means they make a playoff run. The Buccaneers need to make the postseason in 2020, and ideally make a deep run.
If they can’t even make the playoffs, then they will be facing a massive uphill climb in 2021. A climb so big that it might make Brady reconsider even playing another season.
In the end, a Super Bowl is Brady’s ultimate goal. And it’s the reason the Buccaneers brought him in. With the deal being for two years though, it’s not the end of the world if they don’t win it all in 2020.
Positive steps are needed though. Connections need to be built and a playoff appearance needs to be had. If those things can happen, then Brady and the Buccaneers will have a successful first season together in 2020.
