The Los Angeles Chargers are reportedly out on Tom Brady, who is now expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per EPSN’s Jeff Darlington and Adam Schefter.
“Barring anything unforeseen,” Schefter wrote, this is the expected result.
Brady has reportedly agreed to a contract worth about $30 million per year, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
This breaking news comes just hours after a Buccaneers offensive lineman appeared to share that Brady was set to sign with the franchise.
Brady spent his entire 20-year career with the New England Patriots but made sure to give himself the opportunity to hit free agency when he signed his last deal there. On Tuesday morning, he made it clear he would not be returning to the team that he won six Super Bowls with.
Now, it appears he will sign with the Buccaneers and play with one of the best wide receiver duos in the NFL. Should be a ton of fun in Tampa Bay this coming season.
