Tompa Bay: The Unveiling

If you're a New England Patriots fan, you may want to skip this article.
Tom Brady unveiled his new threads today and he's giving off some serious "thank u, next" vibes.
You know when you break up with your ex—the one who drove you up-the-wall crazy at times—and you go into full "hot body" mode? Pretty sure Tom Brady just set the new standard. TB12 Mode, if you will.
Don't believe me? You be the judge:
Alright, I'll be honest with you. I've never really been a huge fan of Brady. He's a walking dynasty and of course, I respect the heck out of him as a football player. He will 100% go down as one of the greatest to ever play the game, especially at the quarterback position.
But he always seemed too good to be true. Too nice. Too elite. Too chiseled.
I mean, come on.
Brady spent 20 years with the Pats and threw for nearly 75,000 yards with 541 touchdowns and only 179 interceptions. Just to compare, former Bucs quartberback Jameis Winston threw 88 interceptions in a mere five years.
There's no doubt Brady is worth his shiny price tag of $50 million over two years with Tampa. Even though Brady is slowly approaching his 43rd birthday in August, he's earned his place in this league. And now in the hearts of every little Buccaneer, as well.
However, there is some trouble in Tompa Bay. The crazy ex I mentioned earlier can't seem to shake him. According to the the New York Post, Brady's old head coach Bill Belichick is motivated to prove the Patriots can win without their former star at centre.
"It's not just talk, not with the Patriots," said retired New England safety Rodney Harrison. "It's a chip you carry in the weight room, you carry in the film room, in the dining room, you carry at home watching extra film. It's a chip that motivates you."
Let the chips fall where they may.
Wherever they do fall, at least we know Brady's looking fresher than ever in Florida.
