After almost 20 years, Brady and the Rob Kraft-owned Patriots decided to part ways. The 42-year old signed a contract with Tampa Bay Buccanneers. Former Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski joined Brady at Tampa Bay earlier this year.

Sharpe further questioned the team mentality of the Patriots’ players while playing under Bill Belichick. He said “Yeah, these guys have won a lot but they don’t look like they’re having fun. They’re so robotic, they’re so methodical, you ask them the same questions and every guy will give you the same answers.”

Sharpe further said that Tom Brady was past his prime which is why New England opted to let him go. “Let me tell you the gospel truth, Tom Brady played like stir fry! Brady did not play good last year which is why they let him go,” the former Denver Broncos legend added. Brady registered just 24 TDs last year as compared to his previous two season tally of 29 and 32 respectively.  Is it the end of the road for Tom Brady or will the ‘Comeback Kid’ live up to his nickname in 2020?
