Without him, it would be difficult to see them making the playoffs.
That’s why football experts placed them in low regard when he retired after the 2021 season.
Then, they were back in business after he ended his 40-day retirement.
After all, a quarterback who had 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns the previous season should not be shutting it down.
However, Brady did not attain success with the Buccaneers alone.
He became some sort of a Pied Piper by attracting top talent to Tampa Bay.
As a result, they won Super Bowl LV over the Kansas City Chiefs.
More importantly, Playoff Lenny was reborn as he scored four postseason touchdowns during their Super Bowl run.
Those achievements wouldn’t have been possible if Brady did not vouch for him.
For that reason, Fournette shared his gratitude for Brady as the veteran quarterback celebrates his 45th birthday.

Fournette had a cake made for Brady with a head of a goat.
On a lighter note, he made fun of Brady’s age by greeting him for his “100th” birthday.
Indeed, Brady is the NFL’s G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) because he is the only player with seven Super Bowl titles.
He is also a three-time Most Valuable Player and eight-time All-Pro.
Brady And Fournette Rekindle Their Partnership
Aside from their top option from the backfield, Brady also finds Fournette for short-yardage plays at times.
It’s that versatility that makes him a valuable asset to the Buccaneers’ cause.
Fournette wouldn’t want to let Brady down because he believed in him after he came from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With an opportunity to win another Super Bowl, Fournette will give everything he has to get another ring.
