Folks, it’s actually happening.
Brady is eligible to sign with the Bucs as soon as 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and according to multiple reports, he’s agreed to a two-year deal with Tampa that will pay him roughly $30 million per season.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport on Wednesday shared that the deal is finalized, and he pointed out the only remaining step in the process.
The #Bucs’ contract with new QB Tom Brady, one that pays him up to $30M on a per-year basis, is agreed to and finalized, sources say. Not that there was any doubt, but there were no issues. All that’s left is for @TomBrady to announce it.

While Brady can’t sign until Wednesday afternoon, he’s more than welcome to announce his next step via social media. Whether or not he takes that approach remains to be seen, however.
