Tom Brady has wasted no time thinking about extending and building his brand in Tampa, but why isn’t Drew Brees doing the same in New Orleans?
Tom Brady is Already Branding His Name with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The former New England Patriots quarterback who signed a lucrative free-agent deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers retweeted a SportsCenter Twitter post with the following comment.
DraftKings was quick to respond to Brady with the following tweet.
Perhaps the daily fantasy organization, which is certainly feeling the absence of sports these days, beat the future Hall-of-Famer to the trademark punch.
Which is Better or Worse, Tompa Bay or Tampa Brady?
If we’re being honest, both of the Brady trademarks are a little rough on the ears. Brady is such a huge star that it’s likely his appeal and charisma supersede the cheese that is dripping from both of these names.
We won’t know for sure if these things fly or crash until we hear an announcer refer to the home of the Buccaneers as Tompa Bay, or to the quarterback as Tampa Brady.
Drew Orleans is Much Better
It really is a shame Brees didn’t think like Brady because his trademark is so much cooler. Many fans can probably see themselves wearing the Brees shirt, but you’ve got to be pretty loyal to rock a Tompa Bay tee.
Before Brady made his free-agent decision public, Brees was asked how his opinion on his peer’s potential landing spot. Brees said he loved Brady, called him a legend and didn’t see him going anywhere.
It makes sense as rarely will we see active players comment with anything more than a safe take in these kinds of situations. However, it could speak to the contrasting thought process of both men. Perhaps Brees couldn’t fathom playing anywhere else but New Orleans, and when it came down to it, Brady made a decision that Brees wouldn’t.
Brady Has Been Vocal This Week
In addition to his short, but interesting tweet listed above, Brady has given the media a ton to work with considering we’re on a very slow sports news landscape during the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier in the week, he did an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM. During the interview, Brady discussed a variety of topics.
Ranging from his relationship with now-former head coach Bill Belichick to experimenting with marijuana and alcohol in high school, his marriage to his relationship with President Donald Trump, Brady gave everyone a lot to talk about.
Brady is currently living in baseball Hall-of-Famer and friend Derek Jeter’s house. He’s renting the home and he also spoke about that experience in the interview. You can see it below.
It was entertaining and refreshing to see Brady speaking so comfortably and candidly. His interview set off tons of reactions including hot takes from ESPN First Take’s Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman.
As we head toward an uncertain beginning to the 2020 NFL season, here’s to hoping Brady continues to give us a piece of his mind.
