Although Tom Brady has retired from the NFL, his legacy and the impact that he left on the game will not soon be forgotten.
He brought hope to two separate franchises, winning six Super Bowls in New England, and one in Tampa Bay.
After his retirement, yesterday, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan highlighted his impact on their city.
Tom Brady changed the entire culture of the Buccaneers. We were losers. The second he walked in the locker room the entire organization changed. I’ll always thank him for that. He gave us 3 amazing years. We were spoiled. Now it’s up to this regime to keep us relevant. Ty TB12.

Before 2020, when Brady joined the Buccaneers, the team had very little hope.
They hadn’t made the playoffs since 2007, and they hadn’t won a playoff game since their Super Bowl victory in 2002.
Brady left a lasting impact on both the New England Patriots and the Buccaneers, but it’s not just his on-field abilities that contributed to his continued success.
His locker room presence, coupled with 20 years of experience, proved to be a great indicator of success, especially for the Buccaneers.
In 2020 and 2021, Brady led the Buccaneers to 11-5 and 13-4 seasons, respectively.
These were the team’s best seasons since 2005, and it was the first time in Buccaneers’ history that they won 11 or more games in back-to-back seasons.
How will the Buccaneers move forward from here?
As of right now, the Buccaneers just have one quarterback signed for the 2023 season, which is Kyle Trask.
The team will be making a few offseason moves to shore up their quarterback spot.
The Buccaneers could be in on the Aaron Rodgers sweepstakes if that is even an option at this point.
Otherwise, they will have to explore elsewhere in free agency, hoping that they can find their next franchise quarterback.NEXT: Tom Brady Will Forever Have A Great Tampa Bay Nickname
