Tom Brady is heading to Tampa Bay — at least that is what one man in the know is reporting.
After all the drama and speculation of where Tom Brady will suit up in 2020 played out, one of the most unlikely teams is strongly rumored to sign him as early as tomorrow.
Brady to Bucs
Tom Brady dropped a bombshell on Tuesday morning by announcing that while he does not know what team he will end up calling home in 2020, he does know that he isn’t returning to the New England Patriots.
However, it seems like Brady is packing up his family and moving to South Florida — and no, it’s not to play for the Miami Dolphins.
FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd is reporting that he has a source close with Brady that told him that the six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback has made a decision and will be signing with the Tampa Bay Bucs when free agency officially opens tomorrow — Wednesday, March 18th.
"I was told that Tom Brady signs tomorrow with Tampa Bay."

The Buccaneers recently jumped into the Brady rumor mill following heavy speculation that Brady was most likely heading to the Chargers, Raiders, Bears or Colts.
Like a classic horse race, towards the end, somehow Tampa Bay went from a laughable overthought to the front runner.
Now Cowherd says he believes it is all but a done deal for Brady to trade in his Pats uniform and crack open a brand new look in Tampa.
Enough talent to be Super Bowl bound?
They have a solid coach in Bruce Arians, and some talented players, but can Tom Brady really lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title?
With All-Pro caliber wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin joining Pro Bowl caliber tight ends in OJ Howard and Cameron Brate, Brady would have options.
And remember, Bucs head coach Bruce Arians has worked with NFL greats including the likes of Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, and Andrew Luck, so adding Tom Brady to that list won’t give Arians any jitters.
If anything, it will fire up the flamboyant coach even more on the sidelines.
Cowherd mentions in the video above that the “two teams he knows that are making a strong pitch for Brady as of today are the Chargers and the Buccaneers.”
It seems according to his sources that the Buccaneers will win out in the end.
Tomorrow is going to be a very interesting day in the NFL world if you are a Patriots fan.
