Brett Favre on why Tom Brady’s offseason was frustrating
A guy named Brett Favre definitely knows a thing or two about gunslinging in the NFL. However, another big name who spent 20 seasons with a franchise recently made noise during the offseason when he relocated from New England to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, former long-time New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may have to make the most adjustments out of everyone else.
The 11-time Pro Bowler chimed in on the current situation of Brady:
“For a guy like Tom Brady, you’ve got to be scratching your head,” Favre told USA TODAY Sports. “Of all the times to change teams, he’s gotta be saying, ‘How am I going to get the chemistry I’m wanting to have with the guys, with my new (teammates)’ with everything that’s limiting getting ready for a season.”
Favre has an understanding of what it’s like to go to a new team after spending most of his 20-year career in one place. He was mostly remembered by many to have played for the Green Bay Packers for 16 seasons. After his stint in Wisconsin, he decided to retire and unretire and went on to play for the New York Jets in 2008. Minnesota became his final destination as he joined the Vikings from 2009-2010, and ended his career thereafter.
On the other hand, Tom Brady was fresh off from a 20-year tenure in Foxborough under the tutelage of head coach Bill Belichick. His stacked resume also spoke highly of the legacy he left on the franchise. The six-time Super Bowl champion is now looking forward to greener pastures as he recently packed his bags to Tampa Bay.
With the upstart Buccaneers, he will be reuniting with another Patriot great Rob Gronkowski, along with ball-carrier Sean McCoy, and prolific wideouts in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. A dynasty is still expected to brew in Florida even with Brady already being in the twilight zone of his career.
Week 1 cannot come soon enough as the whole NFL landscape is raring to see how the 14-time Pro Bowler will fare with his new team.
