Tom Brady In Players' Tribune, "I have things to prove to myself"


Wild Card Round - Tennessee Titans v New England Patriots

A sixth-round draft pick (199 overall), a six-time Super Bowl champion, 20 years with one team. Now Tom Brady is moving down south from Foxborough to Tampa Bay.

Brady wrote an essay in the Players' Tribune and talked about getting drafted by the Patriots, to his 20 years with the team, to moving on.

"I’ve had so many friends and teammates over the years who’ve come and gone. I was always the one guy who never had to move. As I said before, playing for one team for 20 years has been an amazing ride and experience. But doing the same thing year after year brings its own challenges. A familiar rhythm can be comforting and great. But it can also make you lose sight of other rhythms, newer ones that remind you of everything that hasn’t been done yet. One isn’t necessarily better than another — they’re different, is all. Playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a change, a challenge, an opportunity to lead and collaborate, and also to be seen and heard. And I know my time there will be as amazing in its own way as what came before."

Tom Brady will surely still be beloved in Foxborough despite leaving. He will also always be remembered as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time regardless of what he does in Tampa.
