Buccaneers’ GM Felt “Relief” When Tom Brady Announced His Return

Brady’s retirement lasted just six weeks before he made the dramatic decision to return to the NFL. You can read more about this here.
“We are all excited. I think probably the same like any fan here has been and any person on staff here,” said Licht. “We’re all very excited. Why wouldn’t you be?”
There have since been talks of Brady staying beyond the season, with Licht revealing plans were in place to extend the quarterback’s contract.
“We have some work to do, and we’ve got some plans,” said Licht. “There’s several ways to go about it, but I don’t want to get into too much of what we’re doing.”
“We’ve got several alternatives that we can do, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to get it done.”
Licht goes on to talk about the impact Brady has on the Buccaneers’ franchise.
“When you have a player like Tom, who’s the greatest quarterback of all-time, if not player, players want to play with a guy like that.
“I think players like it here, regardless. But, having a player like that throwing the ball to them, or even being on the other side of the ball knowing that he’s your quarterback, it certainly helps.”
