The NFL community reeled in shock after it emerged Tom Brady will sign an agreement with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020, leaving the New England Patriots after 20 seasons with the franchise.
It’s a move that promises to boost a Tampa Bay side that hasn’t made it past the wildcard playoffs since winning the Super Bowl in 2002, andcustomers will have their chance to cash in.
The sportsbook (live in New Jersey and Indiana) has announced that the Buccaneers will remain priced at odds +2500 (26.00) to win Super Bowl LV until Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
Tom Brady will sign a contract in Florida worth $30 million per year!
NFL insidersaid Brady, 42, will sign a contract in Florida worth $30 million per year, but there are questions regarding the tools in place around him at Raymond James Stadium.
Brady is set to replace Jameis Winston in the shot-caller slot, though he’s short of elite options at wide receiver with the likes of Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Scott Miller.
Tampa Bay could improve their team in the off-season and will seek to recruit some promising rookie talent at the NFL Draft between April 23 and 25. The NFL has confirmed the 2020 Draft will go ahead and be televised, but all public events surrounding it have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, per.
Brady’s move to Tampa will automatically make the Bucs a much stronger candidate for the Super Bowl, though the odds seem long for a team that went 7-9 last season and hasn’t recorded doubt-digit regular-season wins in a decade.
Exciting times ahead, on and off the field! https://t.co/q1W2jNXODF— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) March 9, 2020
