Tom Brady 'is joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers': The 42-year-old free agent flies south for the winter 'on a $30million-per-year deal' after announcing his exit from New England Tom Brady's first foray into NFL free agency is expected to be a short one as the 42-year-old quarterback is reportedly on the verge of signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after announcing his intention to leave New England earlier on Tuesday. According to multiple reports, Brady will sign a new contract with the Buccaneers on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the deal is worth $30 million per season, although the length of the contract is not known. Fox Sports Radio's Colin Cowherd was the first to report the news. Both ESPN and Boston radio station WEEI have since confirmed the reporting independently. Brady's agent did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation from the Daily Mail. Former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston started at quarterback for the 7-9 Buccaneers last season, throwing 33 touchdowns and a whopping 30 interceptions to lead the league. He is now a free agent and is expected to sign elsewhere. Brady became a free agent for the first time in his career this month. Players can officially begin signing new contracts on Wednesday .
