With Brady’s future uncertain, Bucs will explore options

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers spent the past three seasons doing everything they could to try to help Tom Brady be successful. If the seven-time Super Bowl champion retires or decides to sign with another team in free agency this winter, it will be important to have a plan to replace the 45-year-old quarterback. Coach Todd Bowles acknowledges as much, although he’s not providing much insight into how the Bucs are thinking. And while there’s no definitive timetable for Brady to let the team know how he’s leaning, Bowles says ideally the Bucs would like to have a better idea by the start of free agency in March.
