New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft took out a full-page ad in the Tampa Bay Times to show some love for our former quarterback. The ad said, “there will never be another Tom Brady,” and asked Buccaneers fans to “take care of him.”
“Your passion for the game, competitiveness and constant pursuit of excellence resulted in an unprecedented six Super Bowl victories, nine conference championships and 17 division titles,” the ad on page A-3 reads. “You’re now recognized as the greatest of all time for what you’ve accomplished on the field, but you’re an even better person. Thank you, Tom for your countless contributions to the New England Patriots, and we wish you and your beautiful family continued success. There will never be another Tom Brady.”
This is a bitter end to Brady’s time in New England. The Patriots just didn’t have the spending cash to build another legit championship run around him in the upcoming season. This will be a tough season to go through but there are brighter days ahead. The Patriots are currently projected to have over $100 million in cap space entering the 2021 season.
