Will Adrian Peterson Be The Latest Addition To The Tom Brady Revolution In Tampa Bay? – Essentially Sports

Bruce Arians Tampa Bay Buccaneers are definitely one of the favorites to make the playoffs ahead of the start of the 2020 season. A major reason behind that is the arrival of six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady in Florida. The three-time NFL MVP ended his 20-year association with New England Patriots in January.

He signed a two-year deal worth $60 million (including bonuses) with the Buccaneers. Post his signing, the Florida-based franchise moved quickly to further strengthen their roster. They brought in Rob Gronkowski, LeSean McCoy and Leonard Fournetter to add to an already impressive offense. Willl seasoned RB Adrian Peterson be the latest star to join the Brady revolution in Tampa Bay?

Peterson was released by Washington Football Team earlier today. He spent 10 years with Minnesota Vikings before short stints at New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals. He arrived in Washington in 2019 and had decent individual season. As per reports, Peterson was linked with a move to Florida before the 2020 season can start.

The 35-year old said, It caught me by surprise. I was having a strong camp. It was showing up on film, taking #1 reps all the way to this week. I just got notified by the running backs coach yesterday that they want to give these..young guys some reps, but I didnt know I was going to get cut, there was no indication. Today (Ron) Rivera just said this is always tough, but yes were gonna release you & go with this offensive style. I respect coach. Look (Antonio) Gibson is a hell of a talent.

This system really fits him. I feel like I can do that pony style too, more as a receiving back. We were all working on it, but they really want one main guy to do it & they drafted Gibson for it. Trust me, I still have a lot in me, more to strive for & do again, Peterson told reporter Josina Anderson.

Former Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was the latest to join Tom Brady and Co. in Florida. He was released by the Jaguars earlier this week. He almost immediately penned a one-year contract with Tampa Bay. Fournette had a mixed bag of results during his time in Jacksonville. However, at 25, he still has a lot of time to improve his overall game heading into the 2020 season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers start their 2020 season with a tough game against New Orleans Saints on September 14, 2020. Veteran quarterback Drew Brees might feel a bit odd watching Tom Brady put on a red jersey as opposed to a blue/white one. Which old warhorse will have the last laugh when both teams face-off at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome?
