Ronald Jones Says He’d Love To Play With Tom Brady

February 4th, 2020

Indecision and fear at quarterback seems to rule at One Buc Palace.

Jason Licht ain’t talking publicly. Bucco Bruce Arians has gone silent. Can’t someone tell those guys there are 50-plus players on the roster to talk about?

You know it’s an odd year when co-owner Bryan Glazer is the early favorite for the front office orator of the year award.

Players have been talking, though, since the frustrating conclusion of the Bucs’ 7-9 season.

One guy chatting it up was Ronald Jones.

SiriusXM host Mike Dempsey asked Jones what he would think of potential free agent Tom Brady fitting in with the Bucs’ weapons and how Jones would feel about playing with Brady.

“Oh, you know, (laughs) that would be something [to play with Tom Brady],” Jones said. “Tom Brady, obviously, the greatest quarterback, one of the greatest to ever play. To learn from him, to be around him, to watch him, would be something special. Year 21, it can’t get better than that.”

Yes, Jones was asked about Jameis Winston’s future in Tampa, and he was confident No. 3 would return for year No. 6.

“He’ll be the guy,” Jones said of Jameis. “You know, first year, so we both had to learn a new system. Again, that helped me just hearing NFL terminology for a second year, it helped me on the field. So yeah, I think he could take us the distance.”

Perhaps most interesting came after the interview was over. Dempsey, the host, spent a minute talking about how Jones’ body language completely changed when talking of potentially playing with Brady. Dempsey described Jones as completely lighting up and giddy at the thought.

The clock continues to tick on Decision Brady Jameis.

    Silence…..driving Joe absolutely crazy…….
    Really not driving Joe crazy at all, but Joe sees the fallout of the Bucs’ poor and low profile in national media, and Joe gets pissed off. This franchise can do better for its players, fans and ex-players. Bucs officials can blame it on losing, but that’s a loser mentality when it comes to crafting your team image. Joe likes to see the franchise win on all fronts. Hopefully, Team Glazer will demand excellence in all areas.–Joe

    As PT Barnum said, “there’s no such thing as bad publicity”.

    I do not believe that in total but it does make a good point. What would we be talking about right now if not for the QB Conundrum?

    Heated debates may aggravate us but at least from the Buc’s standpoint they’re still getting talked about in a dead time of the year.

  3. Anonymous Says:

    The silence driving everyone crazy but at the end of the day Jameis is going to be back at least one more year. The QB’s on the market the big names aren’t going to come here for one year.. and it wouldn’t be the best idea to sign those guys for more then that.. drafting a qb and then putting a rookie in BA offense probably isn’t the best idea either… Jamies gets the tag a ab is drafted and we all see what happens is probably what’s going to happen

  4. Robert Says:


    even the players want the GOAT!!!!

    Get Brady. toss the crabman overboard!

  5. Says:

    No publicity is bad publicity.

  6. John Sinclear Says:

    Suggest you all forget about Brady. We don’t HAVE the thirty million he’s already offered, unless we gut the entire defense. Ya’ll really want to do that?

  7. adam from ny Says:

    the winston effect


    the brady effect

  8. Buczilla Says:

    Brady is a pipe dream, but I’d love to see it come true.


    Love to play with Tom Brady?? Thank you Captain Obvious!

  10. Craig Says:

    The problem with playing with Brady is that you have to play for Belichick.

  11. BigHog Says:

    You’re supposed to light up when hypothetically talking about playing with the GOAT …soooo wherever the GOAT lands in free agency, the BUCS should send ROJO for a 4th round draft pick…with that pick we get his (ROJO’s) replacement and he gets his wish to play with the GOAT….mind you (ROJO) the first swing pass you muffle, BRADY is going to cuss you out and on the side line he is gonna ride your ass to the greyhound bus station for a ONE way ticket out of town!! BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR!!! GO BUCS!

  12. zzbuc Says:

    Quick thoughts.
    – I am not a JW fan by any means
    – I am not a JW hater bye any means.
    – Brady to the Bucs seems a Utopia for me.
    – Ronald Jones, before throwing under the bus your QB publicly please first play at least decently, good teammmates just don´t do those kinfd of things, so your are either an inmature guy or you are a bad teammate……..

    Peace out.

  13. Adrnagy Says:

    Funny how some of you think Brady , Brees or whomever wants to play for bucs. You guys are like ROJo “ I would like to play with Brady” … so let me wake you up from your dream all you marshmallows.
    BRADY don’t want to play with you rojo or come and play with all you fake fans.

  14. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Are the Panthers who are historically better run than the Bucs talking Bout their QB situation publicly?

    Joe is just not use to the Bucs being run by competent people.

  15. WyldKat Says:

    Go on the radio or whatever, and they’re going to hit you with questions like this.

    Rojo didn’t bus anybody. He just tossed a response out there.

  16. NPRSageBoy. Says:

    The only way RoJo plays with Brady is in a pickup flag football game.

    For those of you dreaming of Brady in a Bucs uniform, take another drag on that crack pipe.

    Peace, out

  17. AlanBucsfan Says:

    Brady’s not coming to Tampa.
    If you pay Jameis $30 million, the D will lose key FA’s, and you’ll likely lose Perriman and chance to add FA Olineman, RB or DB.
    Jameis is just not that good.
    And if you keep Jameis and draft a QB in 1st or 2nd – that’s drama waiting to happen.

  18. Pewter power Says:

    Duh what offensive player wouldn’t want to play for the greatest of all time. I’m sure they would all light up if you mentioned Wilson, brady, rodgers or any of the top QBs and everyone even donovan Smith would have to take his game up a notch or two. I think they already know as a team winston is going to throw interceptions and that gives you a meh feeling offense or defense

  19. 813bucboi Says:

    silence is good imo…..

    means they’re really taking this serious……coaches, scouts and the FO are all hard at work…..

    thats what good organizations do….work quietly to improve your team and minimize distractions….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  20. ManzielMadness Says:

    I just cant see Brady leaving NE. And to come to Tampa? Even more doubtful.

  21. Barack Says:

    Did someone say crack pipe??

  22. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Feb 25 is the first day teams can use the franchise tag & March 10th is the deadline……so…..will probably be no news until then…..if then. Unless Bucs work a deal without using the tag….

  23. PSL Bob Says:

    Does anyone seriously think that with Brady at QB, this team wouldn’t have made the playoffs last year? Look, I’m no Jameis hater and I’ve vacillated on whether we should bring him back. But given the Bucs UFA situation, freeing up his $30 million would certainly make a huge difference. We can still get rid of Perriman (don’t need 3 No. ! receivers) and Brate (not used enough to justify his salary). and there’d be more than enough to keep the entire defense in tact. Pay Brady, draft a QB as Winston’s permanent replacement, draft a RB and a safety, and shore up the O-line through the draft and FA, and this team WILL be in the playoffs next year. You can take it to the bank

  24. Robert Says:

    trade ME for savings and sign Brady, he’ll make Perriman a hero!

    “Silence…..driving Joe absolutely crazy…….”

    I honestly never expect much news this time of year. Anything interesting that could be said on the free agent front, could also be construed as tampering.

  26. adam from ny Says:

    would brady even listen to a single word leftwich has to say???

  27. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete Says:

    Sign Bridgewater and we’re set… It’s a no-brajner.

    Don’t screw this up Licht, Arians!

  28. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    I don’t see the Cowboys parting ways with Dak we aren’t giving up on Jameis. Goff got a stupid big deal and so did Kirk cousins jimmy G etc. pay jameis you probably could get a deal on him if you play the contract right. I’m not worried at all. Bucs with BA going to bring some good people in. Not like all these moron coaches before.

  29. Sharthappens Says:

    More fake news. Tom and Giselle are not coming to the red neck riviera aka Trampa

  30. Buc4evr Says:

    Tom Brady would get killed in Tampa with our O-line and lack of a running game. Jameis is going to get tagged or get a cap friendly three year deal and the Bucs are drafting a QB.

  31. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    And this just in, water is still wet

  32. 3isaBust Says:

    Joe really needs to stop obsessing over Jameis so much. This organization is at peace with being bottom dwellers in the NFL. I’m sure they’ll prove that once again when they sign the turnover machine to a multi year deal. Then we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the fumbles, interceptions, overthrown receivers, lose after entertaining loss, and of course zero playoff appearances. It’s a Bucs life!!!

  33. ClwJB Says:

    Brady isn’t coming here – it is a joke to even discuss it

    He’s gonna leave the best franchise in sports to come work
    For the Glazers? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  34. unbelievable Says:

    File this under “duh”.

    Lol if you think Brady would ever come played here, no matter how tempting our skills position players might be.

  35. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’d take Drew Brees over Brady any day.

  36. Bucemup Says:

    I laugh when I hear people say we won’t sign Teddy B because his arm won’t translate in BA’s as if all of our routes are 80 yard 9 routes. Upgrade the run game and Oline, sign Teddy B and you’ll have a 27/6 TD/int Qb. 3800/4200 yards. That stat line will catapult us to the playoffs. Did Teddy look like he couldn’t make all the throws when the Saints whipped us in N.O in 2019? I saw a few deep balls that looked good to me. Stop over thinking this.

  37. Bucsfanchase Says:

    I don’t want a declining GOAT on my team. Brady’s arm strength is weakening that was evident this past season.

  38. YouDon'tWatchFootball Says:

    Ronald Jones did play decently. He averaged 4.2 yards a carry and rushed for 724, more yards than Barber did, behind a terrible offensive line. Jones also had 309 receiving yards. He did this with only 203 touches.
