Tom Brady Likely Returning After Leading Buccaneers To Best Regular Season In 15 Years

No matter what happens this season, it appears Tom Brady intends to at least play out his contract and return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And why would Brady do that?

Well, for one, he did indeed sign a two-year deal with the Bucs. For another, he apparently thinks next year can be even better.

All of this was featured in a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, who indicated Brady won’t let age factor into his decision on whether to return. Brady will be 44-years old in August.

It seems as if people started to doubt Brady — but consider the Buccaneers finished 11-5 and in second place in the NFC South. That tied for second-most wins in franchise history and marked the first time the Bucs had posted 11 victories since 2005.

“So far, expectations have been met, but anyone inside the Tampa Bay locker room will tell you that the job is not done,” reported Jason Beede of SI’s AllBucs.com.

Beede is correct, as Tampa Bay visits the Washington Football Team to start the playoffs Saturday night. And no matter how far the Buccaneers go, it appears this won’t be the last we see of Brady.
