Brady’s Agent: “You Made The Right Call”

August 11th, 2020

A little Buccaneers history was shared today.

And it’s fun history, not the kind that has to do with a 12-year playoff drought or Jeff Jagodzinski.

General manager Jason Licht found his way to FOX Sports Radio this afternoon and was pressed to share the moments he first felt Tom Brady could be a Buccaneers reality.

Licht explained he was in that special place when he called Brady’s agent, Don Yee, and he quickly told Licht, “You made the right call.”

The next level, Licht said, was when he called Brady with Bucco Bruce Arians and Brady answered the phone and said, “What’s up big guy? I’m very excited.”

Joe loves this slice of Tampa Bay folklore. And yeah, Joe calls it folklore because Joe would bet plenty of cash that Licht and Arians had a pile of knowledge on a likely Brady-to-Bucs reality long before the NFL’s free agency windows opened.

Still, Licht’s stories were heartwarming and exciting, and Joe sure hopes the Bucs in fact “made the right call.”

  2. Ndog Says:

    Yes sir this is day that will live in infimany. Enjoy it now cause it could easily soon be viewed as one of the worst days in franchise history.

  3. Ndog Says:

    Hey Joe I’m just hear to let you know…they didn’t.

  4. Youngbucs Says:

    Ndog and winston could just as easily become a bust. He’s trending in that direction don’t matter if you believe it or not.

  5. Ndog Says:

    No YoungBucs the only reason he is not here is because we have the most disorganized dysfunctional franchise and history. And they value eyeballs of the national media and people who believe things like lemmings over winning.

  6. 813bucboi Says:

    worst days in franchise history….


    this doesnt come close to the JW 30 4 30 days…LOL…

    GO BUCS!!!!

  7. 813bucboi Says:

    the only reason JW isnt here is because of the bucs org?….lol…

    30INTs has absolutely nothing to do with it….lol…

    i understand you dont know football….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  11. JimmyJack Says:

    Ndog @3:55 saying it can soon easily be viewed as the worst day in history…….This shows how disillusioned you are. It’s actually the opposite. You’re gonna have to eat an entire year dude while your QB is benched. It wont be soon at all for you.

    You whined for Winston’s entire career and now there is nothing left to whine about. reality is all that’s left.

    Rather then face reality you irrationally continue to whine. Your on some strange quest to prove yourself right when reality proves you wrong. You always been wrong and you’re guaranteed to be wrong for an entire year more…….The facts are in, Winston’s been demoted. He is now a NFL backup. Alls you can do is pray for an underdog story and that it works out in 2021……..You may choose to live in altered reality as you wish….but here on the other side people in life get demoted for reasons.

  12. Ndog Says:

    Yep and Steve Young got demoted, Doug Williams got demoted, Kurt Warner got demoted, Warren Moon got demoted and so on and so on. We got the mostoverrated player in professional sports history at 43 years old, on a new team for the first time in 20 years yeah not bright.

  13. Jeffbuc Says:

    Guys leave ndog alone. We all know this was going to finally be the year jameis put it together. Just like ndog was saying in July of 2016,2017,2018,2019, and now in 2020. We should have signed him to 5 more years so if he finally in 2025 had a good season ndog could say hah told you so. In then we resign him and it’s back to this is the year in 2026,2027,2028,2029, and then we release him and ndog just rants about that one season in 2025. If he had a kicker, number 1 defense, the leagues best offensive line, a top 5 runningback. And elite receivers he would have succeeded. But this horribly ran franchise couldn’t do what no other team can do and have the best at every position.

  14. SB Says:

    Ndog…..I am still waiting for you to answer my question. Let me rephrase it for you.

    What was it about JW that made 31 other teams passed on him in FA?

    Don’t give me the “Ive already answered that” shpeel either because I never saw it.

    I can only assume that the word “infimany” means how many more interceptions JayMiss will throw in his STORIED career.
    You know….. like infinity and many!

    Ndildo you are a delusional nut hugging pos.

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    It’s almost as if Ndog has never watched any other QB play other than Jameis.

    I mean for real.

  17. SB Says:

    If ’87 said that then it SHOULD be obvious to you Npup.
    ’87 was an Ardent supporter of JW. Many of us were supporters.

  18. SB Says:

    ” We got the mostoverrated player in professional sports history at 43 years old, on a new team for the first time in 20 years yeah not bright.”



    Dumbest Post EVVVVVVVVERRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

    Fn A you are stupid.

  19. Roadwarrior Says:

    The only reason ndog is on hear is elicit comments from everybody else and makes it his own personal platform. It wouldn’t matter who was on the team he’s going to go against everything just to get responses. He’s worthless. Just stop talking to him he’ll eventually go away.

  20. SB Says:

    “#2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Both the Buccaneers and the Falcons are coming off of 7-win seasons. But having replaced Jameis Winston with a 6-time Super Bowl winner in the form of Tom Brady, the Buccaneers are the better team right now – at least when it comes to quarterbacks.”
    “Overall, the franchise should be in a better position with Brady as their starting quarterback than they were with Jameis Winston, who will be playing backup to Brees in New Orleans.”


    Lol! This coming from a Saints site!!!

    I just perused 3 different Saints sites and couldn’t find One positive comment about the Jameis addition from fans.
    Guess Ndog is the only smart one in the world DOH!!!

  21. SB Says:

    Yep and Steve Young got demoted, Doug Williams got demoted, Kurt Warner got demoted, Warren Moon got demoted and so on and so on.


    Are you smoking crack or dropping liquid LSD 25?

    None of those guys got DEMOTED!!!!!!!!
    All but Warner simply got Traded and Ascended their teams
    Jeesh you just sound more stupid every time you type.
    And hey! With the lack of comments I have seen on those Saints sites I visited there is Plenty of room for you

  22. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Ndog is getting pilloried! The left-over tomatoes and rotten eggs are flying. Not a pretty sight. 😙

    The Glazers finally learned enough patience to let someone try to build a winning organization. It took a while but Jason Light has grown into his job. He has done a great job in the past two or three years. The coaching regime is in place and the talent is here.

    Now it is is up to the players to perform … this year.

    Go Bucs!

  23. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Jay Miss is somewhere between the 65th and 95th best QB in football, since he’s 3rd string and there are 64 first and second stringers. The entire NFL hierarchy is wrong, but Ndog is right!

  24. Oneilbucs Says:

    JimbobBucsfan This GM missed on a hold draft class lol 😆 . Then do you really think he build anything ??? We don’t know what’s going to happen this season if we will win or not . Now when you think about the future we have a 43 year old quarterback and you believe he’s the future lol 😆😂🤣 ?? Man look I know yall happy Jamies gone but your statement was crazy . And now you talk about we have the right coaches on staff when one of the coaches it’s probably his last year in the NFL . Now that the scapegoat is gone who’s going to be the scapegoat because regardless how Brady plays good or bad it’s not going to be him even if he suck . And covid will not be a excuse for Brady because he’s old and if he plays bad regardless if it’s the offensive line fault or not he’s going to be even worse next year because he will be 44 years old . This is why it was a bad idea even if we win our future is dem because we have no plan .

  25. JimmyJack Says:

    O’Neil let me clue you in. They did more building a defense last year Then we saw in the last 20 years. If you expected them to take a last place defense and finish building it in one offseason your completely unrealistic………But if you look deeply you see we can create turnover have no problems pressuring QBs and have a #1 run stop. That’s plenty to work with. On offense we undoubtedly are set to go. Your no plan for the future comment revolves around one player and has almost no merit.

    Then you say if we win if we win if if………Its always if we win dude. We are usually left making excuses for losing………The only question is are you going to make a excuse for winning? Cause it sound like you already are and are expecting us to win. And gotta say if you make a excuse for winning there’s just something wrong with you.

  26. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Oneil is like the Robin to ndildos Batman.

    Try to be faster next time lil buddy… your daddy’s being getting hammered.

  27. SB Says:

    ONeil …………Can you answer the question I asked Nd?

    “Why did 31 teams pass on Jameis as even a back up in FA?

  28. NDog is an idiot Says:

    NDog STILL Slurping on JayMiss’s balls!! You’d have to think NDog’s mouth would be getting sore by now!!

  29. SB Says:

    Bonus question!!! Why did the team that Did sign him feel he was worth less $ than Ryan Griffen……oh an ex Saint btw!

  30. SB Says:

    @NDog is an idiot

    He is one of those dogs that will eat themselves to death like a fish.
    The more we feed him the more he slurps it up.

  31. Oneilbucs Says:

    SB Yall keep saying Jamies ain’t going to do nothing in the NFL all yall want but you do know what’s going to happen just like I don’t know what’s going to happen to Jamies in the NFL . But judging from what he had here a team that can’t or just don’t run the ball and a defense that sucked the pass 5 years ain’t telling me nothing about Jamies being a bad quarterback . He was asked to do more than Brady , Big Ben , Rivers , just to name a few and he was expected to win the game anyway is just crazy . But I you going to call that a excuse then not to mention he played with a broken finger last year with a bad knee . But Wentz , Andrew Luck , Big Ben , Drew Brees , got that pass but I haven’t heard that for Jamies and that’s just the truth .

  32. Oneilbucs Says:

    And another thing The NFL IS full of politics and if you don’t know that then you shouldn’t comment on no player . If Jamies gets a real opportunity because he probably won’t it doesn’t mean that he can’t play the game . He proved that he can play in this league the problem is that he came to a bad team that has never developed a quarterback in the history of the franchise . And if I’m a young a quarterback coming out of college I wouldn’t want to come to Tampa . I would ask for a trade like pull a Elie Manning . And soon when this Brady thing is over then what ?? Yall going to be looking for Rogers , Big Ben , Rivers , to leave their teams lol 😆😂🤣 ??? I tell you what if the bucs bring in another old quarterback and old defensiveliman . I will be done with this team because that will siliterfie that this is a loser fan base and franchise and I will be done with this team . If they bring in any more of these old 40 year old players or quarterback talking about starting .

  33. SB Says:

    Do You Speak English???

  34. Youngbucs Says:

    Shut up if he gets a real opportunity lol the Bucs gave him that. Even though he was embarrassing them on the field and off it. A lot of organizations would have cut him after Uber gate. Nope let’s pay him over 20 mil more and hope he gets it. And guess what he didn’t get move on his time was up here let it go. Continue to follow his career but the Bucs hate is stupid. Why are y’all surprised he’s not here we didn’t even know if they would pick up his option at 1 point.

  35. SB Says:

    I didn’t ask for a rant I simply asked if you were Able to answer a question..

    Rants usually mean not.

  36. Youngbucs Says:

    Be done now loser go away

  37. SB Says:

    Also I have Never said that Jameis is done. Was he a Total bust for the Bucs???
    Will he replace Brees and be Great? Possibly. I was always a supporter.

    I just can’t stand idiots like Ndog comparing him to the Goat. If that makes me an Ass in your eyes then so be it.

  38. SB Says:

    Actually good points Youngbucs

  39. Big Stinky Says:

    Someone said we don’t develop quarterbacks as another excuse for SHAMELESS I guess but that’s just not true. Dirk developed Winston and the “Quarterback Tinkerer” ruined him. That was close to the worse QB performance in NFL history. First of all, no QB has thrown 30 picks in a season in 32 years and the last one just happened to be a Buccaneers QB as well. So he threw for 5000 yards and 33 TD’S, big effing deal. Means nothing when you don’t TRY to protect the football.

    The second thing I would argue is that his seven pick 6’s cement him as the WORST to play the position in 100 years. I guess a couple QB’s have thrown 6 of them and SHAMELESS was going to make that list regardless. Destiny was calling last year though if you ask me. Trust me, everything happens for a reason and that was just another sign from God. I warned you all that the Antichrist is here on Earth. The stage is almost set for the Tribulation. Once people do become aware it will be too late. Find Christ while you still have time!!!!!!!

  40. Buccan8 Says:

    This is the break JW needed; at the end of the bench charting passes, he cannot throw 30 INTs!

  41. Oneilbucs Says:

    Big stinky Payton Manning had more turnovers than Jamies and Payton Manning threw 6 interception in one game . Bret Favre had 29 interceptions in one season and the team still made the playoffs . It’s a lot of quarterbacks that had a lot of picks . But I guess they get the pass because they white lol lol 😆 …

  42. Roadwarrior Says:

    Oneilbucs Payton superbowl, Bret faver superbowl, big Ben ssuperbowl, Drew breese superbowl, A luck playoffs, Carson Wentz’s playoffs.

    Jameis 5ooo yards 30 interceptions , 7 picks for touchdowns.

  43. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Y’all please just ignore Ndog. He’s like a dung beetle: if you don’t roll him any s$&t to play with, he’ll just waddle off some place else to bother other people.

  44. Youngbucs Says:

    ^^^^^Best comment

  45. Dangeruss Says:

    2nd best comment ever!!! ^^^^^^

    TB12 is going to shock the world & Ndog will have to pry his lips off Of Porky Jamesis booty… called American’s QB!! What a joke!!

    Let’s go!!!

  46. NDog is an idiot Says:

    Oneilbucs and anyone else calling out race in the NFL is stupid as crap and a complete LOSER!! In Today’s NFL it’s all about Wins and losses!! Loser Race Baiter! Truly disgusting!!

  47. Eddie Says:

    Hey a few of you remind me of Jet fans, never happy and always complaining. We have Brady, we have a great offense, let’s see if the defense can win some games also. I’m expecting that ANYTHING can happen. See you in February.

  48. Eddie Says:

    Oneilbucs. Low blow dude definitely not needed on this forum.

  49. Buczilla Says:

    Going from a highly talented but erratic quarterback with poor leadership skills to the best to ever throw a football seems like an easy choice to me.

  50. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Well, I see that the comment section hasn’t changed since Winston’s last pass. It didn’t work out, he’s gone, get over it. I wanted Winston to be the guy like most Buc fans, it just didn’t happen. Testaverde was the first overall pick from a Florida school and turned the ball over a lot AND went on to have success somewhere else. We might as well have that conversation too, its just as “not relevant” as the a Winston talk.. 🤦‍♂️

  51. Lloyd Olson Says:

    Nothing like trying tno whip a dead Horse, last year is dead , never to be played again . Tom Brady May be 43, no player conditions them selves as Brady
    Does, none watch the level of Nutrition as he does, all that means, at least 10 years off the age clock, the man never stops trying to improve himself, That is the reason he has 6 rings on his hands, they didn’t get there by accident, No quarterback is anything with out line, Not Joe Montana, no one. With out a line
    Brady can do nothing laying on his back, but give him a second and a half and see what happens, that is why he has 6 rings, That, and no one, absolutely no one reads the other team like Tom Brady, no one. That’s why he is what he is,
    There is more to being a quarterback than simply passing, it’s that Simple

  52. Buster71 Says:

    As Buc fans, we’ve been waiting a long time to see the playoffs. JW was to be that answer. It didn’t work out. I was beyond happy when BA signed on. Then this year TB signs on. I’m thrilled, yet still nervous. Covid-19 is still here and we still don’t know if the season will happen. My BIG10 conference has no to the season. We have a great HC in BA. But let’s face it, his age and his past history with cancer puts him at a high risk. Everyone of our big guys are also at a higher risk as this virus loves big people (healthy or not).There are many reasons for this season to be flop.
    My question is this:
    What will the team do after this season?
    Brady and Bruce have a short window. We need a QB for the future and we also need a replacement for BA.
    Will time behind Brady help Gabbort? Will Leftwich be ready for HC position? Will Todd Bowles get a second shot at HC?
    We are set up to win now, I get that.
    These are my concerns.

    GO BUCS!

  53. Boston Boy Says:

    Only stupid people think Winston was worth keeping. Winston HAS sucked in the past DOES suck now and WILL CONTINUE to suck in the future. Any one who think not is just being racist which is another word for stupid Yes… black people can be racist.
