There’s the plain soccer fallout from this. Instantly the Buccaneers are catapulted again into being the favorites within the NFC South, contending as soon as extra for the NFC Championship and maybe even a Tremendous Bowl. Tampa Bay had been largely at a crossroads, needing to determine whether or not to rebuild and financial institution on Kyle Trask at QB (who they chose with a second spherical choose in 2021), or persevering with to chase wins with their ageing, win-now roster.
Tampa Bay had been linked in current days to buying and selling for Deshaun Watson, the disgraced Texans QB who remains to be dealing with civil litigation from 22 girls for sexual assault, regardless of a grand jury in Houston saying they wouldn’t pursue legal fees towards the quarterback.

It was broadly believed that Tampa Bay may very well be a really actual probability, now that’s gone — leaving the door open for the Panthers, Saints, Browns and Steelers, all who’ve been rumored to be considering making a commerce.
Look, no shade on Tom Brady. I completely get not wanting to sit down at house. Hell, I take a one week trip and I begin to get the writing itch as a result of I hate not feeling inventive and productive — however dude, come on now. Choice Sunday is without doubt one of the solely days of the 12 months mid-major schools and athletes who won’t ever make it to the professionals get to be within the highlight for an evening get appreciated. Now, Brady has fully overshadowed one among school basketball’s greatest nights. Absolutely this might have waited till Monday morning, proper?
In any occasion, the NFL might be impacted in quite a few methods in 2022 by this announcement. Brady’s return might affect free company, the draft and have a domino impact all through the league. Tim will inform how dramatic the fallout might be, however TB12 is again. Brace yourselves.
