Getty Tom Brady could recruit free agents to join the Buccaneers.

Help may be on the way for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers even though the team is just a few weeks removed from their blowout Super Bowl victory. During an interview on the DNVR Three Ring Circus podcast, NFL Network’s James Palmer discussed the advantage the Buccaneers are expected to have in free agency thanks to the presence of Tom Brady.

“There’s people around the league that I talk to that think there’s going to be some super teams attempted to be put together for one year because of this style of where the cap is,” Palmer explained. “Guys are going to take less money and go play with Tom Brady in Tampa for one season and then we get back on track and then they’re going to ask for their regular money [after the 2021 season].”

The salary cap is projected to drop next season as a result of the loss of revenue with few fans being allowed in attendance for NFL games in 2020. This is expected to work in the Buccaneers’ favor potentially in two ways. Opposing teams will have less cap space to outbid Tampa for their own free agents. As Palmer alluded to, other free agents may not find the lucrative contract offers they were expecting pushing them towards playing with Brady in Tampa since they are likely going to have to settle for less money regardless of where they sign.

The Bucs Are Aiming to Keep ‘5 or 6’ of Their Key Free Agents

Tampa Bay is going to find it challenging to keep the majority of their own free agents. Key Bucs players expected to hit the free-agent market include Lavonte David, Shaq Barrett, Ndamukong Suh, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette and Chris Godwin. Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians indicated the team has a goal of retaining “five or six” of these key players but did not specify where Tampa would direct their resources.

“For us right now, it’s just keeping this team together,” Arians explained to WDAE radio, per JoeBucsFan.com. “And that’s probably going to eat up most of the salary cap if we can just keep or five or six guys that we want to keep on this football team, and keep the closeness and the accountability factor that we have in the locker room.”

Technically, the Buccaneers already have a “super team” just by retaining the majority of their roster with players like Gronkowski, Brown and Fournette joining the Bucs for less money than they have made elsewhere. The question is whether the Bucs will be able to add to this list by finding veteran players willing to play for less in an attempt to win a Super Bowl.

Brady ‘Loved This Team So Much,’ Says Insider

It will be worth watching the role Brady plays in free agency as a recruiter. We saw last season the Bucs were able to add Fournette and Brown largely based on Brady’s presence. We can expect Brady to speak highly about his experience playing in Tampa when he connects with free agents. ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported Brady has told those around him that he “loved this team so much.”

“I know people do joke, all of us joke, about the fact that Brady has a lot of the say, but he loves what [general manager Jason Licht] did last year and thinks if they can bring this band back together that they’ll be even better coming into this season,” Darlington explained on SportsCenter, via Bleacher Report. “He told people around him that he just loved this team so much.”

NFL fans reaching hard to find clues about J.J. Watts free agency in latest workout tweet

NFL fans are losing their minds trying to guess where J.J. Watt will sign after his latest workout photo he posted on Twitter. 

As more time passes, NFL fans across the country are trying to guess more and more where they think J.J. Watt will sign this offseason. After a long, sensational stint with the Houston Texans, Watt and the team have parted ways. Now for the first time in his career, he’s a free agent.

With several teams interested in signing him, including the Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans, Chicago Bears and others, everyone is itching to find out where Watt will land next. Well, the pass-rusher posted a workout photo on Twitter and people are going nuts in the replies trying to put some clues together.

Everyone is waiting to see where prized free agent J.J. Watt will play next

Indeed, the replies are filled with folks trying to connect hidden messages Watt is trying to share with everyone. For example, two kettle balls next to each other are green and yellow. Well, surely that means that Watt will be headed to Lambeau Field next season to play for Green Bay, right?

Well, not exactly. With Watt searching for his next home, general managers out there are drooling at the thought of having him line up on the outside to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Last season, Watt was once again fantastic for the Texans, posting 36 solo tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles.

Unfortunately for Watt, Houston went 4-12. He’s now looking to join a contender and has hopes of competing for a Super Bowl. Only time will tell where Watt ends up next. We can only hope a decision comes soon, though, otherwise Twitter might collectively explode one of these days.
