Tom Brady’s Return Is Good for Deshaun Watson

The repercussions of Tom Brady’s return to the NFL are wide-ranging and Deshaun Watson is an unlikely benefactor. The Panthers and the Saints, rivals of Brady’s Buccaneers in the NFC South, are both looking for a QB to help them compete for the division now that the G.O.A.T. is back in Tampa, and it may inspire a bidding war for Watson’s services despite the pending civil litigation. The dominoes are dropping early in the NFL offseason!

Doug Gottlieb: “(Tom) Brady un-retiring, now it speeds up the Deshaun Watson story... Because there are no criminal charges, and because there’s so many teams with needs, and there’s no real great quarterbacks in this draft, he becomes even more valuable.”
