“Everything has been kind of wiry this offseason, but I finally had enough conversations, and I came to a decision that I’m going to go play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,” Sherman said via PFF. He also said that he had conversations with the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks, the only other teams he’s ever played for, as well as the Carolina Panthers.

“I went with the best offer I had, the best opportunity to go out there and put some great tape on, to lead another group,” Sherman said via PFF. “I feel comfortable and confident in my abilities to go out there and execute and help that team win. Obviously, I have a ton of love for the faithful and 49er fans and the 49ers’ front office and that team. A lot of guys and a lot of friends I’m still rooting for and cheering for throughout the season. Obviously, still have a lot of friends with the Seattle Seahawks.

“But this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up, and I weighed all of the options with my wife and my family, and this is what we came up with. Ready to strap them back up and go out there and show that these old legs still have some juice.”

Sherman said on his podcast that all of that stuff is far behind them now, and he was glad Brady reached out to  to see if he’d interested in playing with the Bucs.

“He reached out initially and just checked to see if I was in shape,” Sherman said via PFF. “He and I have had a relationship over the years. He’s a great guy. Very encouraging. Obviously, we had our history, but what happens on the field stays on the field. Off the field, I think we have a very solid relationship. And I think we both thought it would be really cool if we had an opportunity to play together at some point in time. Obviously, with our situations, it didn’t seem likely at any point in time, but he reached out and said they may express interest. And obviously, he wanted to play with me.”

While others are possibly enjoying themselves away from the field, Tom is busy recruiting.

The guy just wants to win that badly.
