In 2020, Tom Brady shocked everybody after he announced his departure from the New England patriots to sign with the Tampa Bay Bucs. He then proceeded to take the Bucs through the playoffs and to a dominant victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Deion Sanders thinks Brady’s big move has spurred on this whole era of guys like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and Watson to go into “a frenzy” seeing Brady cruise to a seventh Super Bowl win in year one with his new team.
“OK, so, Aaron was trippin’. My guy there in Seattle, Russell, was trippin’. OK, my guy in Houston definitely was trippin’.” Sanders said on NFL Total Access last week, via 247.
“OK, so, what is it with these quarterbacks? It seems like when you give them 35 million and over, they start trippin’. You’ve got everything you want and you still aren’t satisfied. I understand that we could all say, ‘Well, they don’t give him what he wants down in Green Bay.’ Well, you’ve been 13-3 for the last two seasons. You’ve got to be getting something right. They’re doing something profound.
“I hope it works out because he’s great for the game. I love who he is on the field. I love what he brings to the table. I think he’ll still go down in history as one of the best to ever play. But I think when Tom Brady — not I think, I know — when Tom Brady won the last championship, all quarterbacks went into a frenzy,” Deion posits.
“They just start trippin’. I mean, it’s unbelievable. And you can fault Tom for that. Tom is so dominant that every other quarterback gets insecure about what they have in house. And Tom Brady has never tripped.”
So far, none of the big name quarterbacks who have problems with their current team have moved anywhere….yet.
