UFC President Dana White spoke on Tom Brady’s departure from the New England Patriots to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020.
Brady was a huge part of the Patriots’ success in the last two decades. Having spent around 20 years with the team, the quarterback helped the win 6 championships.
In a life without Brady, the Patriots find themselves with a 6-9 record and third in the AFC East. As for Brady’s new team, they are second in the NFC South with a 10-5 record.
Speaking about Brady’s departure, the UF President said:
“This was eventually going to happen [Brady moving out of New England]. When you have the dynasty that these guys have had for so long, we knew that one day Brady was going to retire. And anybody who ever thought that Brady wasn’t a huge part of the success, cause you always get the haters and detractors. It was such a good team, defensively, offensively and Belichick is such a great coach, great owner in Kraft. The list goes on and on.
“But Brady was a big part of this team man. I knew when he left things were going to be a lot different. Takes some time to rebuild, but who could you have more confidence in than Belichick.”
As for the rebuilding process of the Patriots, they will certainly be looking to be in a better position next year. After a year without their star quarterback, they would have a better understanding of things to improve for next season.
