Tom Brady Tells A Chris Godwin Story

April 25th, 2020

Joe’s going to take a break here from the riveting and exciting Day 3 of the NFL Draft and serve up a fresh take from The GOAT, new Bucs quarterback Tom Brady.

We’ve heard about how Chris Godwin offered his jersey No. 12 to Brady no questions asked, no ransom demanded.

But what’s the real story?

Brady served up insight on that during a live chat with He strongly implied that he paid Godwin for the jersey number, but not before Godwin impressed the hell out of him.

“You know what I love about Chris, he called me up and one of the best things he ever said, ‘You know what, Tom, if I was ever in your position and a younger player had it, I would want them to give it to me,’” Brady said. “That shows you the kind of maturity a going-into-the-fourth-year player has. That tells me what kind of person he is, what kind of teammate he is. And I was very, very impressed by that.”

Very cool stuff. Brady’s tone really screamed that he’s fallen hard for the new No. 14.

    Godwin is a total beast on the field and he’s got one heck of a good head on his shoulders. – love that kid.

    Seems like he’s got a great relationship with Evans (complete bad-a**) and there’s no “Diva” in either of them.

    I’m sure the Brady, Evans, Godwin, Gronk relationship is going to be tight.

    Go Bucs.

    Flippin’ LOVE that kid. I wanted him so Bad in the draft. I was screaming at the TV when we didn’t take him in the 2nd! Almost passed out when we got him in the third.
    How many GMs do you think are kicking themselves in the Arse for passing on him at least Twice!!!

  6. Says:

    Looking forward to a LOT of 12 to 13 and 12 to 14 calls this season.

    For all those maligning Licht’s pick of Tyler Johnson in round 5……maybe, he’s done it again……

  8. unbelievable Says:

    @SB agreed 100%

    I was super high on Godwin, and he’s already blown all my pre-draft expectations out of the water

  9. Iamabuc Says:

    Godwin will make Tom forget about that assclown Antonio Brown…Godwin is his new buddy..😁

  10. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Too bad there is only ONE football. You know TB12 is going to remember CG14 out there on the field…he’s not going to forget Gronk…nor ME13…a lot of primary targets.

  11. El Buco Realisto Says:

    He did not “give it to him”!!!!!!! He loaned it!!!!!!!! Good chance he can get it back it in 9 months!!!!!!!! Worse case will be in a year and nine months!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Pigsueybucsfan Says:

    Nope. Mr. Rogers is going to want the number when TB12 retires. I think we’ll get all the discarded, unwanted, unloved competitive accurate QBs from The Island of Misfit Coaches.

    Tom Brady told him that he will him by leading them to the Superbowl Championship.

  15. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Pay him

  16. DaBux Says:

    Rayjay, #14 is getting paid. Once the big guys finish their 1 year deals and retire, he’s getting $$$$$$$$. To have 2 killer receivers with Gronk for the 2 years TB12 is here is gold.

  17. ModHairKen Says:

    Now, pay Chris Godwin what he deserves and an additional 10%. Do not make him wait. Extend him and show him the respect this dignified man has earned.

  18. Mort Says:

    Y’all see why I was screaming to draft Godwin so hard before that draft. Such a stud. Love it.

    Hope I don’t hurt myself while patting myself on the back like this lol

  19. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    After what Godwin and Penn State did to my Michigan Wolverines, I was hoping we would draft him too Mort !

  20. SOEbuc Says:

    SB…same again.

    I knew the Bucs were meeting with him so I watched his impressive Penn State film. I was sad when he was passed up in the second cause I thought he’d obviously be gone by our third. Very hard working professional.

  21. Buczilla Says:

    Godwins a class act and one hell of a football player.

  22. unbelievable Says:

    Now the question is, would you as a fan rather have a #12 or #14 Jersey with Godwins name on it?

  23. SB Says:

    Good Flippin’ question UB
    It can’t actually be answered right now.

    Good to know. Thanks for sharing this nugget of info.
