Retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady will be present at Gillete Stadium for the New England Patriots‘ season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. The franchise with which the QB spent most of his career will honor him ahead of the contest.
Patriots quarterback Mac Jones caught a stray on Twitter when fans begged him not to ruin Brady’s return. But the real question is if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will do something similar for the legendary player.
Brady, 45, only spent three seasons in Tampa Bay, winning the organization’s first-ever Super Bowl during his debut season.
Having Brady in any stadium around the league will surely make a lot of noise, so it’s possible that the Bucs will want some of that buzz at Raymond James Stadium.
Jones, 24, was tasked with the impossible mission of replacing Brady in New England and he has yet to prove his worth.
Tom Brady or bust for the Patriots
When Brady left the Patriots, there was a lot of talk about him not being able to win without head coach Bill Belichick, and now the tables have turned.
It’s a common thought around the league that New England will never get back to the Super Bowl, at least not as currently construted.
Perhaps honoring Brady is the first step in the Pats’ plan to get him back in the building for any role that might help the team win.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft loves Brady, who is reportedly thinking about backing out of his 10-year contract with Fox, so becoming a New England employee might not be out of the question.
