A dispute over the salary meant that Brady was a free man, and decided to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers had been perennially poor performers for a long time. But Brady transformed the franchise and led the Bucs back to the Super Bowl after almost two decades.

And now, Tom Brady is already preparing for the new season. This morning Tom Brady entered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facility to partake in independent training sessions.
