While the rest of the country seeks a rent freeze from theirs, new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has instead acquired a landlord for the first time in well over a decade, as the 42-year-old will reportedly rent Derek Jeter’s David Islands mansion.

A 30,000 square foot property, Jeter’s mansion comes with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms. It also includes a billiards room that’s wrapped around a pool. Because who doesn’t love swimming in between turns during a game of eight-ball? (Sidenote: If your house has more bathrooms than it does bedrooms, congratulations, you’re officially rich as hell.)

Derek Jeter's House

Better known as Mr. October, Derek Jeter has a mansion just outside of Tampa that is stunning. Derek is a great athlete, person and role model.

In addition to being two of the biggest names in sports from their era, Brady and Jeter share a connection as Michigan alums, and it was reported that Brady had dinner with Jeter (along with Bill Gates and Lightning owner Jeff Vinik) the Sunday before Brady became a true free agent and signed his two-year, big-money (and guaranteed) deal with the Bucs.

The Bucs are relying on Brady to snap them out of what has been nearly a decade and a half of futility, with Tampa Bay finishing with losing seasons in eight of their last nine campaigns, and without a playoff appearance since 2007.
