Tampa Bay had one of the most-potent passing attacks in the NFL last year. The Bucs will try to improve on that in 2020 with Tom Brady now behind center.

Brady, 42, is replacing Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay. The six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback is taking over for the former No. 1 overall draft pick.

The former Patriots star officially joined the Bucs on Friday. Brady has left New England after 20 dominant seasons.

"I look forward to meeting all my new teammates and coaches and proving to them that they can believe and trust in me...I have always believed that well done is better than well said, so I’m not gonna say much more - I’m just gonna get to work!" he wrote.

You can bet on the Bucs wide receivers being pumped for the 2020 season. Chris Godwin, who should be one of Brady's top targets, reacted to the move on Twitter.

Godwin has worn No. 12 for the Bucs, but he might be in line for a change. Brady has reportedly yet to ask for the jersey number, but he'll probably want to stick with No. 12.

"Obviously if he doesn't want it, or if he's not making a big deal out of it, I'm definitely going to keep it. We'll see how that goes," Godwin said. "I think just out of respect for what he's done, what he's accomplished, just kind of the career he's built for himself, you have to lean into that respect."
