The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be entering a transition era quite soon.
Tom Brady will officially become a free agent at the end of the season, and a return to ‘Tompa Bay’ seems unlikely after how things unfolded last season and given their current status.
So, chances are that Brady will take his talents somewhere else if he decides to run it back for another season, with the Las Vegas Raiders, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, and even Miami Dolphins as rumored destinations.
But the Bucs might not be the only organization going through change because of Brady.
Should he decide to retire, then he’d be taking his talents to FOX after signing a 10-year contract last offseason to become their next analyst.
Notably, that would most likely put an end to Greg Olsen‘s tenure in the booth, which would be a bummer for the millions of fans who enjoyed the former TE’s insight throughout the season.
Recently, Olsen acknowledged the possibility of being replaced by Brady in the booth.
And while he admitted that he would be disappointed and it would ‘suck,’ he also acknowledged that he knew that was a possibility when he signed up for the job and would take those punches chin-up.
“Listen, if Brady ends up retiring and coming, and decides, and that’s how everything unfolds, it sucks,” Olsen said. “But at the end of the day, I’m a big boy. I know what I signed up for. I took a chance on myself. I rolled the dice. Let’s see how it plays out.”
Greg Olsen says it would "suck" if Tom Brady retires which could push him out of his FOX broadcasting booth.
Hopefully FOX makes it a 3-man booth because @gregolsen88 is excellent. Possibly the best in the game right now in my opinion.pic.twitter.com/9S8CD1M2te

There has been some speculation regarding Brady’s ability to make the transition from the gridiron to the booth, especially after Drew Brees flopped so badly in his lone year as an analyst.
But even if that’s not the case, Olsen has sure done more than enough to be granted a spot somewhere else, so he shouldn’t be worried about his future in TV.NEXT: Graphic Reminds Fans Of The 49ers' Drastic Turnaround
