Tom Brady will sign a deal to officially leave New England and over to the Buccaneers … and it’s all happening on Wednesday – according to FS1 star Colin Cowherd.
“The Herd” host broke the news on his radio show Tuesday morning saying, “Tom Brady signs tomorrow with Tampa Bay.”
Colin Cowherd: “I was told 35 minutes ago that Tom Brady signs tomorrow with Tampa Bay. He had made a decision and talked to Tampa Bay yesterday. He was willing to re-sign with New England but he watched Stefon Diggs and DeAndre Hopkins go to other franchises and then called Robert Kraft an hour and a half later and said ‘I’M OUT’… I am told Tampa is the choice and he will sign tomorrow… This is not a ‘football source’, it is an ‘Icon source’, and somebody in Tom’s stratosphere that knows Tom, and who is a famous person. He says Tampa.”
Cowherd says his source is not a football one, but rather someone close to Brady on the business side.
“It is a source of wealth and celebrity connected to sports that knows Tom,” Cowherd said.
Of course, nothing official has been announced from either Brady or the Bucs yet and other reporters have said no deal is in place as of now.
In fact, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported earlier Wednesday that Bucs GM Jason Licht said in a text message to him that “nothing is done” regarding a deal with Tom.
But, would it shock anybody if Brady did end up with the Bucs this week? Absolutely not … Tom’s desperately wanted an offense with weapons around him, and Tampa Bay has plenty of those.
