Presumably, Tom Brady is going nowhere. But the truth is that he should be. Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 3-5 – including 1-5 in their last six games – and these days the 45-year-old quarterback looks like a toddler at church: disinterested. So wouldn’t it make sense for the Bucs to trade Brady before tomorrow’s 4 p.m. annual NFL trading deadline and ship him somewhere it matters?
You bet it does.
In fact, Brady fits the criteria of the perfect trade candidate.
He’s old and a free agent-to-be. He still has something left. The Bucs look dead and there are plenty of teams who could stand to upgrade at quarterback.
With that in mind, here’s a fun look at potential trade candidates for Tampa if the Bucs ever were to consider moving on from Brady.
