Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady announced this morning that his run with the team is coming to an end.

When the NFL's new league year officially kicks in on Wednesday, Brady will become a free agent for the first time in his career. According to multiple reports, Brady knows where he'll play in 2020.

ESPN NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington revealed Brady plans to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not long after the report emerged, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport revealed details of the contract.

Rapoport reported Tom Brady will receive "roughly" $30 million per season in the new deal. The length of the contract is not immediately known, but should emerge in the near future.

Here are the details from Rapoport.

Earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints inked Drew Brees to a two-year, $50 million deal.

The Buccaneers paid a bit more for Brady, and now pit two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history against one another in the NFC South.

The addition of Brady spells the end for Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay. Head coach Bruce Arians made it clear he wasn't a fan of Winston, who threw 30 interceptions during the 2019 season.

Brady, meanwhile, has thrown 29 interceptions in his past four seasons combined.
