Tom Brady has a substantial amount of pull within the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ organization. It turns out that a good word from him can also land someone a job.

Things seems to work out for Antonio Brown after Tom Brady told Buccs higher-ups that they need to bring him in.

During an interview with The Colin Cowherd Podcast, Lars Anderson, author of A Season in the Sun, shared a very interesting story about the GOAT QB. Anderson is an authority on the matter as he penned that book about the Buccaneer’s championship run.

“Tom was constantly going into the offices of B.A. [Bruce Arians] and Jason Licht, again the general manager, saying, ‘We gotta sign Antonio. We gotta sign Antonio. Gotta sign Antonio,’” Anderson detailed on November 3. “And he kind of just wore them out, and so finally they call Antonio in after some of his legal stuff had been resolved. They get him into the building, and Antonio said all the right things.

“And so, Bruce and Jason decide to take a chance, again this is almost like more blind faith in Tom, and I don’t want to overstate that Tom played this role of assistant general manager, but he certainly impacted the decisions that Jason Licht ultimately made.”

Tom Brady will be with Tampa Bay for, at least, another season. We will have to see where his high-dollar contract ends up next. It is possible that he could stick around Tampa Bay as long as they continue their winning ways, but he also has interest in retiring as a 49er. Of course, the 49ers also passed on signing Brady.
