    Bucs offered Brady $30 mil, Mariota to Vegas

  2. Gettinthebucs Says:

    Jameis signs with the pats, plays in a balanced offense and wins a playoff game. Meanwhile the bucs lose out on Brady and rivers, Teddy stays with in NO and Dalton signs with the bears. Your 2020 Bucs starting QB will be Blaine Gabbert😭😭😭

  3. Pewter Says:

    Y’all are absolutely insane if you think Brady succeeds here behind this offensive line and this rushing game… Jameis wins big with NE next year and this fan base gets exactly what it deserves. Watch and see Kiddos.

  4. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Can we get some oline help or a runningback

  5. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    So anyone offer Mr 30 INT, banned from Uber, Finger licking, losing record QB, Benched for Fitzmagic, pick 6 throwin Jameis Winston a contract gets?

    I heard he’d be highly sought after from the FSU faithful happy he made them relevant but I’ve read of no offers…

  6. Erick Says:

    I think Brady ends up going to Chargers. I think people are poo pooing their weapons. Eckler would be the perfect RB for Brady, and while Allen and Williams aren’t Evans and Godwin, they are still damn good WR duo.

    If he does go there, who is Bucs second choice? It’s gotta be Bridgewater or bring Winston back, right? No way BA wants to start over with rookie QB.

  7. oxycondoms Says:

    as soon as i heard bucs are getting new uniforms i knew the bucs were in play for brady

  8. Pick6King Says:

    I bet Ndog will be crying his eyes out tomorrow morning. Jamoist is on his way to the XFL. Brady will be our QB. Can’t wait!!! Go Bucs!!!

  9. 813bucboi Says:

    bucs get our QB, JW signs with the PATS and is released during OTAs….lol….

    if bill signs JW, it’ll be like when he signed tebow….lol….#shortlived

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  10. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    Teddy might be a good fit for the Patriots, Bears talks seem to have gone quiet?

  11. Erick Says:

    Andy Dalton is going to NE. Belicheat is going to want to show people he can win with any QB.

    What is the point of this? Why do you hate Jameis so much? Why do you root against him? So really what is wrong with you?

    I’m regards to me I will not be crying about anything. In regards to Jameis in 4 years he will still be playing in the league and we will probably still be looking for a QB I’m not sure how that makes anyone that is a true Bucs fan happy.

  13. Hamsadwitchtime Says:

    You guys are seriously delusional… Winston will be starting for a contender, probably NE. Let’s see if your still on site when that goes down. I will be

  14. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!

    “Sláinte!” (Pronounced slawn-cha, it means “good health” in Ireland.)

  15. gotbbucs Says:

    I’m just not feeling super pumped to possibly have a 43 year old QB for $30+ million. It’s such a desperation move. The organization will be selling their souls once again.
    If they sign Brady, they almost have to draft a QB, and that’s exactly what Brady doesn’t want. The only way he is agreeing to come is if they use picks on players that can help him NOW.
    It’ll probably be fun, but at what cost to the future?

  16. RICHARD weeks Says:

    It wouldn’t matter who comes here..You guys will bitch and complain no matter what!!

  17. Jason Mclaurin Says:

    Jameis and the Bucs will give in to each other and give it another go around I believe. He will get a long term base contract for at least $22-25 million probably lower seeing he has no interest from teams around the league as a starter. Brady is going to the Chargers and Rivers will be with the Colts. Marriotta is off the table and so is Bridgewater. Not trading for Andy Dalton either he will stay and break Burrow in. Winston has a few potential spots though I think the Redskins and Jaguars wouldn’t be bad spot for Jameis. I think Winston is a prideful guy from seeing him play since he was 17 and can’t seeing him taking a hike. BA has made it very clear all his negative comments about Winston are in regards to the last 2 games which it was a poor finish for him but his pride wouldn’t allow him to sit and be the toast of free agency instead of the joke it’s become. I say Winston will return and continue to improve as well but BA must close in the offense or I feel they may move on from him and that huge staff.

  18. Ocala Says:

    I with you Richard. I think it’s a mistake to let Jamies go, but if you can get Brady(even if it is only 2 years) then you have to do it.

  19. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:


    No one hates Jameis personally

    His play 60-70% of the time is frustrating for any paying fan to stomach. Why don’t you get that? Over 20% of the Bucs offensive drives ended in a turn over!!!

    Long stretches of inaccurate passes and bad decisions kill the teams morale and the same rhetoric after every game of ill get better, I gotta protect the ball blah blah blah

    Nothing personal it’s all about his uneven play

  20. Sarasota Garey Says:

    We need a veteran db, maybe Eric Berry?

  21. Casey Morgan Says:

    I don’t mind a “desperation move.” Get Brady and win now. Worry about the future later. (Winston sucks)

  22. D-Rome Says:

    So much for Tom Brady staying with the Pats, eh Bonzai?

  23. Tbbucs3 Says:

    “Nothing personal it’s all about his uneven play”

    Maybe for you, but about 90% of the hate Jameis gets is absolutely personal. The hate starter before he even played his for snap in Tampa and a lot of it is based on many ppls obsessive FSU hate.

  24. boldnewera Says:

    More letters and words…

  25. Couch Fan Says:

    obsessive FSU hate.

    And the obsessive FSU love that he gets is equally appauling. Heck most of his fan boys cant even talk about his flaws without drifting off into 1 of many, many excuses they’ve made for him.

  26. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    Yeah I don’t buy “People hate FSU so they hate Jameis”

    It’s a program that use to be a all girls college and only has 3 titles. They aren’t Bama, Norte Dame, Ohio State, USC or some storied program synonymous with winning and championships

    Hell FSU fans love Jameis as he made them relevant again. The program can’t even sell out games anymore on a weekly basis

    You are only hated when you are good

  27. Tbbucs3 Says:

    “They aren’t Bama, Norte Dame, Ohio State, USC or some storied program synonymous with winning and championships”

    They absolutely are no idea what your talking about. UF, Miami and FSU are all stories programs right up there with the best.

  28. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    UF has been a good program since the 90’s
    FSU about the same time maybe a little before
    Miami since the 80’s but mostly irrelevant since the late 90’s/2000 when they lost to Ohio State

    The programs I mentioned all have national followings with decades and decades of history and winning

    FSU can’t even sell out all their games

  29. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    I’ll guess Winston to Cleveland as the Tannehill to Baker Mayfield.

  30. D-Rome Says:

    I’ll guess Winston to Cleveland as the Tannehill to Baker Mayfield.

    Cleveland signed Case Keenum to backup Mayfield and to be their veteran emergency plan if/when Mayfield implodes.

    The fact that no team wants unrestricted free agent Jay-Miss WinsTOn shows that the rest of the NFL figured out what many of us has known for quite some time. He’s a BUST.

  31. Cgmaster27 Says:

    #1pick tell us the last time nd has won anything? Ill wait. And usc has been garbage for longer than fsu. Ita cles6r you dont like fsu and Jameis, but justifying by saying schools like nd and usc have won anything shows you dont either watch college football, or you have a 1cent brain as well.

  32. nwbucsfan Says:

    Has anyone considered Brady playing in Tampa heat?

  33. Cgmaster27 Says:

    Drome showing his clown side again. Busts dont throw for 30+ tds and 5000 yards. Youre a dolt if you believe that, which im guessing you are.

  34. tvan1 Says:

    So if Jameis goes to New England can he talk all you fake whiny bucs fans with him? I have never seen a bunch of so called fans root for a proven loser more than Jameis while wishing their team would die of shame and embarrassment. God forbid they want to get rid of a clueless QB who cant make a pass on an opening drive without a pick 6.

  35. ColBucFan Says:

    Panthers, and Patriots interested in Bridgewater. Hope the Bucs don’t wait to long on the old man before grabbing the correct QB…

  36. Bucsdelight Says:

    Brady to chargers. Dalton and Cam in talks with Pats. Teddy stays in NO.

  37. CalBucsFan Says:

    Read the bread crumbs in TBs message, he’s telling us he’s a ‘CA kid’ and it’s time for a new ‘stage’ in his life. He’s coming to the LA Chargers, since the stages Tampa’s known for are not TB’s type of stage.

  38. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rick Stroud
    The #GoBucs still are keeping close communication with Jameis Winston. Very close. All for now.

  39. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wouldn’t it be something if the Bucs re-signed Winston super cheap…AND signed brady?

  40. Anonymous Says:

    Bridgewater just went to the Panthers

  41. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, I was wrong about him returning to the Bucs, so I’m eating crow. My name is linked to the plate.

  42. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I mean I was wrong about him returning to the Pats.

  43. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    D-Rome Says
    “So much for Tom Brady staying with the Pats, eh Bonzai?”

    I already did it elsewhere, but I said I’d eat crow. So click my name.

  44. Ivan The Insider Says:


    Other than Brady not returning to the Patriots since HE announced it, nothing has happened yet nor worth eating crow over. In fact, I wouldn’t put it past Brady to still possibly return to New England in some sort of “The Hero Returns” publicity stunt.

    Until Brady signs a contract, or at least agrees to terms, that hasn’t even happened yet.

    Same with Winston. There’s a very good chance Winston may still return to the Bucs.

    No one knows anything until the dominoes start to fall when some of these big name QBs start actually agreeing to deals.

  45. Ivan The Insider Says:

    To me, Teddy Bridgewater always seemed like the perfect fit for the Patriots if Brady were to leave… short, accurate passes, great game manager. Doesn’t take too many risks.

    Bridgewater seems like a much better Patriots fit than Cam, Winston, Rivers, etc.

  46. Ivan The Insider Says:

    The Patriots problem is almost NO CAP room. I don’t think they even have $20M to pay a QB right now.

  47. jjbucfan Says:

    Anonymous- Oh thank God, if you are correct!! We will break him in half next year.

  48. soggy Says:

    who on here said mike will be washed up in 2 or 3 years but JW is good for years n and years to COM ON MAN Get OFF EVERYBODY’S BACK, YOU do not have a Crystal Ball

  49. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Wasn’t me, but QBs do tend to last longer than WRs. Not saying that will be so in this case, but it’s possible.

  50. D-Rome Says:

    So click my name.

    Very funny, Bonzai!

  51. Bucsdelight Says:

    Not looking good for JW. He might get a contract around $23m a year.

  52. WestChap Says:

    If our worst case scenario after swinging and missing multiple times is Blaine Gabbert for a year, I’m ok. I stomached the Jameis roller coaster for 5 years, I’m Bucs Strong!

  53. Anonymous Says:

    Brady will prove, that he made Belechick- not visa versa!!
    He is 43. Will he play 3 seasons?
    Thats the question

  54. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Brady says he want to play until 45.
