Tom Brady shocked the NFL world with his decision to take his talents to Florida. Now, reports indicate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to surround him with some big-name talent.
Brady announced Tuesday that he would leave New England and coach Bill Belichick behind after two decades.
The 42-year-old quarterback finalized a deal worth about $30 million per year to join the Bucs, according to http://NFL.com.
NFL reporter Cecil Lammey wrote Tuesday that Tampa Bay could be adding some big pieces for Brady, possibly seeking to acquire three-time Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley and wide receiver Brandin Cooks from the Los Angeles Rams.
Im told the #Buccaneers are not done. the Todd Gurley buzz has some reality to it
and the team is looking for a speed WR to go along with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Brandin Cooks? Robby Anderson? Denzel Mims in the draft? Lammey wrote on Twitter.
Sporting News reported that Tampa Bay might be an ideal location for the Gurley and Cooks, and the Rams could benefit from unloading them to another team to free up cap space.
The Bucs had the ninth-worst rushing offense in the league last season, so the team could use a talent like Gurley at the position.
Tampa Bay also has more than enough cap space to work with.
Cooks, who is only 26, already has an established relationship with Brady from his time on the Patriots in 2017 and is a premier talent at the wide receiver position, despite a less productive 2019.
Gurley, for his part, didnt do anything to indicate he wouldnt be interested in playing alongside Brady, according to his Twitter account.
