As if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t already one of the favorites to get back to the Super Bowl next season, the team went out and re-signed Leonard Fournette on a one-year deal worth $3.25 million.
With the Fournette signing, all 22 starters of the Buccaneers 2020 Super Bowl championship roster will be returning to run it back.
If you did not know, that is absolutely unheard of in the salary cap/free agency era. It’s actually the first time any team has managed to keep their Super Bowl starters in the salary cap era which started in 1994.
So here’s how Brady responded on Twitter.
The Bucs are the first team to keep all their offensive and defensive starters from a Super Bowl win since the 1977 Raiders, according to The Tampa Bay Times.
Brady signed a contract extension earlier this month that will keep him playing with the Bucs through the 2022 season.
