Bucs’ GM Details ‘Huge’ Advantage Tom Brady Provides During Free Agency

Tom Brady is truly the GOAT of recruiting who he needs on his roster.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht says that Tom Brady plays a “huge” role in recruiting talent to Tampa Bay in free agency. Speaking about the advantage of having the seven-time Super Bowl champion on the team’s roster, Licht admitted that he often turns to Brady to help reel in players.

“Oh, it’s huge,” Licht said during a recent press conference. “I think any GM with an established veteran quarterback has an advantage, but when you have Tom Brady as the greatest, it’s even more of an advantage and I’m never going to apologize for using him to help me bring in players for this team.”

He added: “If I’m thinking about a player or we are as a staff, I’ll give him a call and see if he can help us out and he’s always willing to do it.”

“We’re usually on the same page with that,” Licht said. “We didn’t have to kick too many weeds to find out about Julio Jones. We’ve known about him a while, and Kyle Rudolph was the best tight end that was available. But, we’re usually on the same page. We have a lot of communication – so does Todd [Bowles] and Tom [Brady] and myself. We talk a lot about players.”

The Bucs have brought in a pair of veteran stars in Kyle Rudolph and Julio Jones.

If Tom wants  them, Tom gets them.
