Tom Brady arrived in Tampa Bay with great expectations on his shoulders. The 43-year old former New England Patriots quarterback signed a two-year deal with the Glazer family-owned NFC South franchise worth around $58 million. But it did not take him much time to cement himself as a Buccaneers legend.

Tom Brady secures 7th Super Bowl ring as Bucs defeat the Chiefs

After last night’s win, Brady now has more Championship rings than any other NFL organization as a whole. He is also the only starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl while playing in both the AFC and the NFC.

Outspoken Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright explains why Brady is now on par with Los Angeles Lakers great LeBron James.

He said, “To me, Tom Brady ascended past Jordan, past (Bill) Russell, he already was obviously past (Joe) Montana, but further past Montana, and joined only LeBron James as the team sport athletes that you know, guess what? They’re the system.”

“Where they go, the winning follows where they go, the championship experience and pedigree comes with them.”

“Coaches (with) no championship experience? No problem. The franchise has been a laughingstock for years and years? No problem.”

“As great as MJ was, as great as Russell was, as great as Montana was, we never saw them have that level of success outside of their organizations,” Wright said on the show.

Brady’s dominance in the league has now entered its third decade. He intends to return with the Bucs in 2021 to defend their title. Considering what he has achieved since turning 37, a possible 8th ring is not off the cards for ‘The Comeback Kid’. We can’t wait to see what’s next in store for Father Time.
