The NFL’s strangest bromance could be taking its collective talent to Tampa.A day after reports broke that Tom Brady is expected to sign a deal to become the Buccaneers’ new starting quarterback, the longtime and now former Patriot wants to bring help, by way of Antonio Brown. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the “impression” among teams interested in Brady is that the QB wants to play with Brown. As @TomPelissero and I discussed on TV, the word among teams interested in Tom Brady were among the impression that Brady wanted to bring Antonio Brown with him to a new team. Brown is still under investigation, and remains to be seen when he can play. But Brady is close with him— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 202IYER: How the Bucs became Brady’s best fitBrady and Brown played together for the first game of the 2019 season before Brown was cut amid sexual assault and rape allegations in a lawsuit filed last year. The NFL has yet to levy a punishment against Brown, who remains under league investigation.Brady and Brown’s mutual respect isn’t anything new. Brown has reached out to Brady publicly and privately in the last six months with his desire to play with him once again. After Brown was released from New England, there were rumors that the Patriots could re-sign him for a playoff push despite the threat of discipline handed down from the league.

The fact that Brady, a generally no-nonsense, all-business type of player, would willingly reunite with Brown and his antics tell you all you need to know about how bad Brady wants to win outside of New England.If the NFL were to clear Brown — he likely would need to serve a suspension before being able to play again — and if Brown were to end up in Tampa Bay, the trio of Brown, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin instantly would become (on paper) one of the best WR trios in the NFL today, if not all time. So it’s unsurprising that Brady wants to bring backup to what could be one of the last seasons of his career.In any case, “Brady, Brown and the Bay” is going to make for a great 30-for-30 someday.
