We've never seen a team like this with Tom Brady on it... The math might change a bit.

Also the reality is that Tampa isn’t breaking the bank. No big money is tied up long term and they have almost all their draft picks

It isn’t that I am saying they are screwed or the signing is bad.  AB is a dog, he’ll do well.

However I just see them as a team that could easily blow up in disruption.

Brown is cooked, Mccoy is cooked, Gronk is cooked, Goodwin is injured, Howard is gone for the year. This isnt close to the offense that people suggest based on name value. But indulge. Who knows wtf Fournette is. This will take touches away from younger guys who have shown potential. Like Miller, Brate and even Watson. If Goodwin gets healthy, Brown is focused and discipline but hasn't lost much of a step, mccoy is used sparringly spread out, fournette stays healthy and Gronk keeps getting into form.. then yes, this could be a special offense. Brady has to play like he did 2nd half vs Chargers. That was as good of a Brady as ive seen in 8 years.

The potential upside is literally the best WR in the league though.

That isn't realistic at all.

He’s 32 and the late full season he played he led the league in receiving TD’s and was a few yards shy of 1300. He only missed one year, has been training, has no injuries, and will go on a team where he won’t be carrying the load. 
 

It’s far more realistic that he goes back to business as usual than a hypothetical freak out that blows up the team. They are paying him nothing and can cut him in a heart beat.

Brown’s character aside, his work ethic is legendary. Guys who work like that generally hold off aging longer than the typical player.

So is there a belief that Brady doesn t have complete control of the locker room?   I ll even break up the leadership, Brady on offense, JPP on defense.

Brady is far from a passive aggressive leader.  AB will stay in line or be gone once he is in the building.  Now AB could blow up outside the organization, then it will be over.

I thought that you had to be on a team to serve a suspension why did the nfl waive that rule here?

Pretty sure this isn t unprecedented.  Josh Gordan comes to mind, no?

Gordon has always been a part of a franchise so that isn't correct.

I was curious so I did a quick search.  Plaxico Burress was listed as a FA when he went to prison, and then resumed his career

When I look that it up it looks like a different situation he wasn't allowed to sign with an NFL team until after he served his prison sentence I don't think there were any game suspensions looming.

The league is under a new CBA, maybe there is a change to the personal conduct policy.  I will definitely not be reviewing the old and new CBA to find out.  😀

Suspensions are served by the week missed whether you are on a team or not.

Its been that way for at least 3 years, probably longer.
