Much like Manning — Brady is looking to finish his career with a team other than the one that drafted him.
Manning, who was the first overall pick by the Colts in 1998, joined the Denver broncos and eventually helped them win a Super Bowl. Brady left the Patriots this offseason and is hoping to do the same for the Bucs.
Manning spoke on 104.3 The Fan this week and was asked what advice he’d give Brady.
“I don’t think Tom needs any advice from me,” Manning said.
He also guaranteed the Bucs would win the Super Bowl.
“I can tell the way Tom is talking, how excited he is,” Manning said. “And certainly I’m very familiar with the coaches that he’s playing for: Bruce Arians was my quarterbacks coach my first few years in the NFL. Clyde Christensen was my receivers coach and offensive coordinator for a couple [years] in Indianapolis; he’s down there. Tom Moore, my old coordinator, he’s down there. So Tom’s going to get coached by some great coaches down there. I know they’re excited.
“To me, it’s going to be an exciting year of football when it returns. How many games we’re going to get, who knows, but everyone knows how hard a worker Tom is, and there’s no doubt he’s going to help create a winning culture there in Tampa that the rest of the players feed off of.”
Brady and Gronk joining the Bucs has taken the franchise that hasn’t qualified for the postseason in 12 years to be actual Super Bowl contenders in one month.
