Without him, it would be impossible to see the Buccaneers as a playoff team.
If he did not return, they would be left with an inexperienced quarterback and their top stars might sign elsewhere.
But when he announced his return, their key players were eager to sign contract extensions.
It’s that star power that gives the Buccaneers the best roster in the NFC according to Pro Football Focus’ Ben Linsey.

After the Buccaneers, Linsey ranks the Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, and New Orleans Saints in that order.
Obviously, he considered their rosters on both sides of the ball before jumping to a conclusion.
Under that reasoning, the Buccaneers have elite players on both offense and defense.
Aside from Brady, Tampa Bay re-signed running back Leonard Fournette to a three-year deal.
The Buccaneers On Defense
The Buccaneers’ defense will also benefit from having a defensive-minded head coach in Todd Bowles.
However, having the best roster does not mean that they will represent the NFC in Super Bowl LVII.
That’s why games are played and upsets like what the Rams did to the Buccaneers last season are bound to happen.
