3. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It’s hard to put Tom Brady at number three on this particular list, but here we are.

Don’t get me wrong, either — Brady’s impact on the Buccaneers should be tremendous.

I don’t think we’re going to see the same type of impact in Tampa Bay with Brady that we saw in Denver with Peyton Manning from 2012-15, but Brady makes the Buccaneers Super Bowl contenders, nonetheless.

There were times during the 2019 season where it looked a bit like Brady was losing it. Was that a result of his weapons not being so great? Was his mind on other things?

Perhaps a new city will put a new chip on Brady’s shoulders and he will be rejuvenated. He certainly has no shortage of playmakers to get the ball to and a coach in Bruce Arians who is going to trust him to air it out.

Considering how unlikely it is that Brady will throw 30 interceptions, this could very well be the most impactful quarterback move of 2020 in terms of the ripple effect on the overall team.
