Summary

Tom Brady joins Tampa Bay after 20 seasons with the Patriots. Brady is a marked change as one of the lowest interception rate quarterbacks over the past decade, replacing Jameis Winston, who threw a highly publicized 30 interceptions in 2019 alone. Brady has throw only 29 interceptions over the last four regular seasons total. Brady slipped in production and efficiency across the board last season outside of maintaining an elite level interception rate. Brady arguably had his weakest collection of weapons a year ago in recent memory. Now with the Buccaneers, Brady will enjoy Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in their prime years as well as O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, both upgrades over the non-Rob Gronkowski New England tight ends in recent seasons. The offensive line and pass-protecting running back positions are the central questions for Brady in 2020, keeping the still-sharp soon-to-be 43-year-old upright and healthy surrounded by strong weapons.

Buccaneers | Tom Brady works out with several teammates (Tue May 19, 04:02 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady and approximately eight of his new teammates took part in a two-hour throwing session at Berkeley Preparatory School Tuesday, May 19.

Our View: Brady is taking it upon himself to get work in with his new teammates while the league is still working through a 'virtual offseason.' It's no surprise given his veteran leadership and drive to be great. Working out together in any way possible is only going to help.

Buccaneers | Tom Brady throws with teammates at prep school (Tue May 19, 12:03 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady conducted an on-field throwing session Tuesday, May 19, with several teammates at a local-area prep school. The session lasted about two hours, and Brady was seen walking through routes, including demonstrations of precise foot placement for making breaks. Brady was joined by WR Mike Evans, TE O.J. Howard, TE Cameron Brate, QB Blaine Gabbert, C Ryan Jensen, QB Ryan W. Griffin, WR Scott Miller and RB Dare Ogunbowale.

Our View: It's going to be different to see Brady playing for a new team in 2020. The weapons are there for him to be quite productive this season. Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at QB11 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
