It has been a busy offseason for star quarterback Tom Brady as he moves on to the next chapter in his illustrious career. Brady is nearing playing his first campaign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after two decades with the New England Patriots. It’s an entirely territory for him as he hopes to add to his legacy. However, the 42-year-old can’t seem to shake breaking the law.
Tom Brady’s new NFL home
It has taken some time to get used to, but Tom Brady is no longer a member of the New England Patriots.
Brady has embarked on his next journey with the Buccaneers after spending the last two decades with the Patriots. It brings forth an entirely new set of challenges for the 42-year-old heading into the 2020 season. He has the opportunity to blaze his path away from the Patriots as his success has been linked to New England, especially head coach Bill Belichick.
It’s not a shot at Belichick or the Patriots, but it’s his chance to underline his greatness and legacy further. He’s entering territory where it could also separate him in the conversation as not only the greatest quarterback of all time but potential the best player in NFL history.
There is much on the table for Brady to look forward to in his first year with Tampa Bay, but the future Hall of Famer can’t get away from breaking the law.
Tom Brady breaks the law again
Over his first few months as a member of the Buccaneers, Tom Brady has had his name in the headlines for some of the wrong reasons.
Brady had a minor run-in with the law earlier this offseason as he was spotted working out alone in a closed park in Tampa Bay. The 42-year-old recently committed another act that broke the law as he was spotted wearing a pair of Air Pods as he entered the Buccaneers’ practice facility last week.
Brady didn’t receive a fine or ticket for his actions, it break the law. In Chapter 316, Section 304 of the Florida State Senate is reads that nobody can wear a headset, headphones, or listening device aside from a hearing aid or similar instrument that improves hearing while driving.
It may be a minor offense, but it requires only common sense as it prevents proper hearing while driving. On top of that, it’s something that many Buccaneers fans don’t want to see their new prized position get into any trouble or worse because of a pair of Air Pods.
Buccaneers’ excitement for 2020 season
The buzz around the Buccaneers has taken off to tremendous heights with Tom Brady in the fold.
Brady brings his reputation, talent, and experience with him, winning at the highest level at an unmatched level. That creates massive expectations around the franchise. They are among one of the early Super Bowl favorites in the 2020 season.
The six-time Super Bowl champion is joining a team that already had some promising offensive talent that will now include himself and longtime teammate Rob Gronkowski. The Buccaneers possess a pair of Pro Bowl wide receivers in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin along with substantial assets at tight end with Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard. That’s not including running back Ronald Jones, who could cement himself as a workhorse back next season.
Tampa Bay has the piece in place to be one of the league’s most exciting teams in the 2020 season. The pressure will be on them to live up to those expectations, but with Brady in the mix, that is certainly possible.
