Tom Brady “Is Not Going To Wait Until He’s Falling Off The Bridge”

March 8th, 2021

So what will a Tom Brady contract extension look like and really mean?

Brady is under contract for 2021, but Team Glazer and Bucs officials need more salary cap room to sign their long list of special free agents.

That’s Brady and the Bucs’ cap gurus come in. Brady renegotiates and adds years to his contract and, poof, creative accounting clears from for the Bucs in 2021 and money gets spread over the life of the contract.

But what if the Bucs extend Brady through 2024 and then Brady retires after the 2021? That’s ok. He wouldn’t be paid his salary during a year in which he’s not playing, and whatever signing bonus money Brady gets for 2021 still can be spread around.

There’s good momentum on a deal, and longtime Brady friend and former mentor Charlie Weis was clear this morning on SiriusXM NFL Radio; Brady will not milk the Bucs just to finish a contract. Per Weis, Brady will walk the minute he feels that he’s no longer Superman.

“When Tommy thinks he’s on the way down, he’ll walk away. He’s not going to go out with deteriorating skills,” Weis said. “I mean, he’s not going to wait until that happens. He’s not going to wait until he’s falling off the bridge.”

Joe believes Weis, who scored one of the rare preseason interviews with Brady. When you win seven Super Bowls and you’re a very old man in football years, there’s no reason to stick around. Brady isn’t Vinny Testaverde or Steve DeBerg.

That reality should bring comfort to the Bucs as they look for Brady to sign a fat new contract.

    I’m canceling my SiriusXm subscription due to Charie Weis being an angry, asshole

  2. Bird Says:

    Everyone knows the clown on here that says brady will play until his arm falls off and struggle like manning’s last year

    The same clown who thinks the bucs future looks bleak with brady as the quarterback

    Its really unfortunate that this certain individual just spreads doom and gloom on here daily

    I mean at least you got some sense that ndog knew something about football. This guy has zero clue and his archives are all wrong predictions.

    What a great time to be a TRUE BUCS fan! Rejoice all my fellow die hards WE deserve it!

    How to save 10 mil next year (figures per OTC):

    Current 2021 cap hit: 28,375,000

    Extend 2 additional years, give his 2021 roster bonus as a signing bonus instead (and spread the hit across 3 years) makes next year’s cap hit: 18,333,333

    Say you pay him the same total value ($25 mil annually) those next 2 years, his cap hit would be almost the same is it would have been this year: $28,333,333

    This doesn’t seem far-fetched, and frees up enough money to resign LVD, or maybe Suh and AB.

    Most stay too late at the party.

    The truly smart leave with the guests wanting more.

    Brady is, as Bostonians are apt to say, “Wicket Smaht”…

    Why blame Sirius? They didn’t create him.

  7. Chris Thomas from Heaven Says:

    Dear Joe’s
    Bob Papa has nearly quit working at SiriusXM NFL Radio because Charlie Weis is such a JERK. So, now they have Shae Peppler & Bill Lekas taking turns, working w/ his miserable attitude.

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m just so grateful we won the SB this year……a repeat would be great…..but at least we won….another would be gravy.

  9. buxsxntkt Says:

    i’ve never heard Charlie Weis to be angry on Sirius XM. The dude is annoying because he is always calling Brady “Tommy” and using his run in NE to make himself seem like a “playa” , even though he failed miserably on his own with ND, much like every other NE coach that moves elsewhere.

  10. buxsxntkt Says:

    what is so annoying about Weis ? He sounds like he is just an old fart. He was chatting this am with some female host, mentioned his big weekend outing was biking with his wife around his florida home. He likes that it is flat (no hills) in florida, easier to get around for him.

  11. james west Says:

    i hope he plays till he’s 50

  12. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Bird if you ask Ndog…

    He knew everything about football. The rest of us knew nothing πŸ˜‚

  13. sincethebeginning Says:

    I got to tell you, for all the gut punching his team’s play made me feel, I really did pull hard for Steve Deberg while he was here. I really liked him. Not a Jack Thompson you know? Don’t get me wrong, I loved rooting for Vinny and hoping he’d overcome his troubles, but I especially pulled for Deberg during his time. Loved how he threw a ball! Thought he and James Wilder and our receiving corps had such awesome potential!!


    Typical Brady move extend to open up cap space for others. So if he signs for 4 and plays two but he’s up front about it, it is what as long as the Bucs have a chance to groom another QB in the process.

    Wait for it Oneilyall is going to tell us we need to bring Jamais back, 2 maybe 3 SB rings isn’t good enough for him.

    99% Sure no subscription ever existed

    Lol lol πŸ˜† 🀣 πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜… Listnfrmafar yall worry about Jamies more than any one else. He hunts yall every day because yall bring up Jamies more than any one on this site. Lol πŸ˜† 🀣 πŸ˜‚!!!

  17. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Oneill, Jay Miss haunts no one. BRADY won a Super Bowl his first year with this team. Jay Miss never won squat as a pro, and he’s currently a 3rd stringer who has a propensity to lick his fingers in New Orleans. He probably played football with family members over Christmas and threw a pic six or two in the backyard.

  18. Youngbucs Says:

    Jameis Winston sucks that’s all I gotta say prove me wrong jameis. Sort of like Brady proved oneil and ndog wrong πŸ˜‚

  19. Youngbucs Says:

    Oneilbucs how long we gotta wait for this dude to reach his potential???? 5 more years you said this a ten year plan rightπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  20. Youngbucs Says:

    Alvin I can’t wait to here the new excuses for him next season. They will never stop the crying.

  22. Oneilbuc Says:

    Jamies is a millionaire yall hate to see a young black male get money especially when they don’t act like a old white male. Lol πŸ˜† 🀣 πŸ˜‚ keep making your money brother. Lol lol πŸ˜† 🀣 πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜…!!

  23. BoricuaBucFan4life Says:

    Some guys just never lose that juice In their arm see; Brett Favre, Steve Young, Nolan Ryan, Sandy Kofax… some people retire when their body’s can no longer take the beating like Favre. Brady is one of those rare athletes whose body will need to retire before his arm ever will.


    Oneil, finally we got it out of you, you are a Brady hater because he is white. Mahomes, Wilson, Watson, Prescott etc all black and no one on this site has ever doubted their talents yet you always criticize Brady and Manning. Sorry they are rich white men, live with it. We only point out that Jamais is no where near the talent level of all above but you keep defending because you believe we are doing because of his race. Wrong, he is just NOT an elite NFL QB, a backup at best. Live with it, for now Bucs QB is white.

  25. Youngbucs Says:

    He’s plays the race card instead of answering the questions. How long it take for him to reach his potential mid thirties????

  26. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar After the superbowl some of yall was talking down on Mahomes saying he ain’t that good. But say what you want yall hate to see a young black man getting money πŸ’° !!! Get off Jamies jock he don’t even play for the team anymore . And I do love all my black quarterbacks and I wish them all nothing but the best . And I love to see them getting money it’s a lot of sorry white quarterbacks they been making excuses for years. How many times have you heard the national media calling Sam Donald trash ?? If he was a black quarterback they would be blaming him for the jets losing .

  27. Mike Johnson Says:

    Good thing Brady has a good looking wife. he’s gonna need her in the future. The guy will be in a wheelchair before he is 55. All them injuries. You cannot cheat the brutality of football. Nobody does. Or..very few do.


    Oneil you have serious issues. NO on this site doesn’t recognize Mahomes talant, he is the best in the league. We were all happy to see him fail because he is the best not because he is black. Please there have been many black QB’S Moon, Vick, Cunningham, McNabb, McNair and many more not to mention the four highest paid qbs in the NFL. You think we rag on Winston because he’s black? Wrong he is just not good. Take the chip off your shoulder not everyone is racist. Brady is your QB, he’s a winner a future slam dunk HOFer and sorry to say White.

  29. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar I never said every body is a racist. But still I will always wish Jamies nothing but the best in life . I’ve seen so many of yall wish Fitzpatrick nothing but the best and that’s ok to me . I’ve seen yall show so much love towards Fitzpatrick even when he left and that’s ok with him . But yall gets mad because some of us don’t hate Jamies and we don’t rag on him are even tare the guy down yall get mad at that . So just like yall don’t hate Fitzpatrick and yall wish him well . I can be the same way about Jamies. Yall bring up Jamies on every thing even when no one is talking about Jamies .


    That’s because we are busting your balls. If you were whining over Fitzpatrick, we would be saying the same about him. You were the one (see your post prior to the last one) using the race card. It’s when you defend Wintons abilities and compare them to the ABSOLUTE BEST ever, you don’t sound very bright. It looks like you’ll be whining another 2-3 years, he AIN’T going anywhere!!!!

  31. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar I don’t whin over Jamies or no other player in the NFL. When the bucs lose I don’t lose no sleep. So I don’t know what you mean busting my balls. Yall are the ones who’s obsessed with Jamies lol πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚ 🀣!!! And I have never compared Jamies who been in the league for 5 years vs someone who been in for 21 years in the same system. But what I do know is this they better bring in a young quarterback behind Brady.


    Oneil, how was Brady’s first 5 years? Once again your rebuttal doesn’t hold water. Brady is a winner, Winston simply is not.

    This is national get over it day, GET OVER IT!!

  33. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar this will be my last time talking about Jamies in Brady . Brady didn’t start his first year in the NFL. His second year doing the first playoff run he only threw 3 touchdowns the hold playoffs . Don’t forget the Patriots defenses that they had and the players that were on that defense. Don’t forget about the runningbacks he had also. I think you are more of a Brady fan than a bucs fan. And that’s cool with me but as for Jamies you can compare his numbers to Payton Manning. Payton had more interceptions and turnovers than Jamies. And Payton had 2 hall of fame runningbacks . He played in a weaker division the AFC south . Because I know you’re going to tell me but he won . So if he had more picks and turnovers and his teams still won . And the other guy lost that means one team is better than the other. Jamies play for another team so move on . I’m not talking about Jamies no more. I will respond to any post about Jamies. I wish him the best so I will never hate Jamies like yall do .

  34. Oneilbuc Says:

    I will not respond


    Jamais was a 1st round pick. And the major difference between him and Brady and Manning is he went backwards. So he was clearly overrated. If he wasn’t another team would of picked him up as their starter. You are a Bucs fan so CONGRATULATIONS you have the GOAT for at least the next two years and the losing has stopped.
