Former NFL QB Dan Orlovsky is backing Tom Brady to have another great season at age 44.
Tom Brady is widely considered the greatest NFL player of all time. He is a 7x Super Bowl champion, a 5x Super Bowl MVP, and a 3x NFL MVP. His list of accolades is ridiculously long. His longevity is unprecedented. Even after 21 years at the top of his game, he is still one of the best QBs in the league.
He holds the record for passing yards (91,653), completions (8,542), touchdown passes (664), and games started (344). He has 264 career wins, the most by any QB in the history of the sport.
In the 2020-21 NFL season, he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win, in only his first season with the team. He threw for 40 touchdowns, his most since his 2007 unanimous MVP season. His accuracy was more than 65%. Safe to say, he has not shown any signs of slowing down.

The Buccaneers are bringing back all their Super Bowl starters
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the 2021-22 NFL season with high expectations. They are the second most likely team to make the Super Bowl in, according to odds-makers, sitting it at +700, behind only the Kansas City Chiefs (+450). They are favored to repeat as NFC champions at +300.
A big reason for this is that the Buccaneers are bringing back all 22 starters from the Super Bowl, which they won in an utterly dominant fashion. Some key free-agent signings they made in the off-season were WR Chris Godwin (franchise tag), LB Shaquil Barrett, LB Lavonte David, LB Ndamukong Suh, TE Rob Gronkowski, and WR Antonio Brown.
The Buccaneers are the first team since the 1977 Oakland Raiders to bring back all starters.

Could Tom Brady have his best season yet, this year?
Former NFL QB turned sports analyst Dan Orlovsky certainly believes so. He says that one more year of experience in HC Bruce Arians’ offense is going to do wonders for Brady. Also, the return of TE OJ Howard from injury, the better integration of WR Antonio Brown, and the signing of RB Giovani Bernard are going to be big factors in Brady’s success this upcoming season.
