The photos marked the first time Brady has been seen in his Buccaneers uniform. The 42-year-old star modeled Tampa Bay’s red, white and pewter uniform schemes.
The sight of Brady in Buccaneers colors will be an adjustment for NFL fans and players alike. The six-time Super Bowl champion spent the first 20 seasons of his NFL career wearing the red, white and blue colors of the New England Patriots.
Brady signed a two-year, $50 million contract with the Buccaneers in March. The deal includes another $9 million in performance-based incentives.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic prevented Tampa Bay from hosting Brady for an introductory press conference – the venue in which newly signed players typically don their jerseys for the first time.
Brady is already settling into life with a new NFL team. He is renting MLB legend Derek Jeter’s mansion in St. Petersburg, Florida. He’s also filed trademark applications for a number of phrases related to the latest phase of his career, including “Tompa Bay,” "Tampa Brady” and “TB x TB.”
