TAMPA (WFLA) — Six-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady is going to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Tampa Bay is expected to be the landing spot for Brady “barring anything unforeseen.”

Chris Meyers, the voice of Buccaneers preseason football, tells WFLA, “The two are working on the deal and both sides were trying to make it happen. Nothing officially done yet to my knowledge. However, I said in January if he left New England the Bucs were the best fit for him.”

The 42-year-old quarterback announced his departure from the New England Patriots Tuesday morning.

Considered by many the greatest quarterback to ever play football, Brady will be bringing an unmatched legacy with him to Tampa Bay.

Brady was famously drafted by the Patriots with the 199th pick in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft. He has thrown 541 touchdowns against 179 interceptions in his career.
