The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be loaded on offense next season if they simply bring back most of their key players, but is there a chance they could add another star receiver in the coming months? Tom Brady probably wouldn’t be opposed to it.
ESPN’s Jeff Darlington said on Thursday’s edition of “Get Up!” that Brady and Odell Beckham Jr. “would like to play together at some point.” He noted that Brady did not pitch Bucs general manager Jason Licht on the idea, but he and Beckham have gotten friendly over the years.
“I say this because I could see going into this offseason with Odell being in a situation where it feels like, perhaps, he is more expendable to the Browns than he was last year,” Darlington said. “Perhaps Jason Licht would take the call. But to all of these points, I’m also told they do really like where they stand with Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Antonio Brown if they can bring him back. If something changes, though, that is the one I would be watching.”
The Bucs would probably only have room for Beckham if they do not re-sign Brown. Since Brady is the one who wanted Brown in Tampa Bay in the first place, many believe he will be back next season. Brady has taken Brown under his wing since the two were briefly teammates with the New England Patriots. Brown even lived with Brady at his Florida home for a while after the Bucs first signed the seven-time Pro Bowler.
There have been rumors that the Browns could trade Beckham since almost the moment they acquired him. Now that they made a nice postseason run after he went down with an injury, they may feel they don’t need him.
The Patriots reportedly pursued Beckham when Brady was still in New England. Brady and Beckham have even had some interactions on social media that sparked rumors of them teaming up. We wouldn’t rule out the Bucs making a run at OBJ this spring.
GUYS @TomBrady JUST THREW THE LOMBARDI TROPHY ACROSS THE WSTER!!! pic.twitter.com/vTKo9bwF5J

Tom Brady tossed the Super Bowl trophy from his yacht onto teammate Rob Gronkowski’s boat on Wednesday as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers celebrated their NFL championship with a river parade.
Brady threw three touchdown passes, two to tight end Gronkowski, in Sunday’s 31-9 victory over Kansas City in Super Bowl 55 to capture his seventh career NFL crown — his first after 20 years with the New England Patriots.
“There were Duck Boats before but it was freezing cold. It was nothing like this,” Brady said in a telvision interview tweeted by the Bucs. “This is perfect.”
The 43-year-old quarterback had never enjoyed such a Super Bowl celebration in the cold-weather conditions of Boston, where land-and-sea Duck Boats could handle some nautical duty and excite Patriots fans.

This bash, however, was in warm and sunny conditions and followed a similar celebration by the Tampa Bay Lightning after last year’s National Hockey League championship.
“This is amazing. I’m loving it,” Brady said. “So happy for our team. Everyone gets to experience this. Very cool day.
“Is anyone working today? No way.”
As the parade on boats navigated its way along the Hillsborough River and the downtown waterfront — cheering an flag-waving supporters along the shore and on other boats kept at a social distance as music and horns blared and beverage sips were enjoyed by players aboard ships.

While Bucs coach Bruce Arians enjoyed the crowd from the front of his boat, Brady was at the back of his $2 million yacht with the Vince Lombardi Trophy the team accepted Sunday, the first club to win a Super Bowl at its home stadium.
Brady wore a T-shirt and black shorts with sunglasses and a backward cap.
With Gronkowski’s boat just behind his own, Brady took a few practice swings then made an underhanded lob and threw the championship trophy high in the air over the water and onto the boat of Gronkowski, where it was caught on the fly and hoisted into the air in a moment of joyful celebration.

The 2020 NFL season involved a few dominant individual performances. Barring a tie for this year’s MVP award, all but one of those will join the league’s collection of near-misses. Here is who this year’s “others receiving votes” contingent will join among the best NFL seasons of the MVP era (1957-present) that did not result in a trophy.
1 of 30
30. Roger Craig, 1985
David Madison/Getty Images
Marshall Faulk and Christian McCaffrey have joined Craig in the 1,000-1,000 club, but both did so in increasingly friendlier offensive eras. With Jerry Rice not making an immediate impression as a rookie, the 49ers leaned on their third-year fullback. Bill Walsh made Craig a rarely seen chess piece, and the former Nebraska hurdler delivered. Craig rushed for 1,050 yards but caught an NFL-most 92 passes to gain 1,016 through the air. He added a career-high 15 touchdowns. Marcus Allen earned MVP acclaim in this season, which is better known for the Bears and Ronnie Lott’s pinkie. But Craig’s versatility opus still stands out.
Joe Robbins/Icon Sportswire
With Peyton Manning throwing him passes, Harrison never had a reasonable MVP path. But his age-30 season came closest. Although Harrison did not receive a vote, he was far and away the NFL’s best wideout that year and moved the position into new statistical terrain. Harrison set the NFL’s single-season receptions record in Week 15, and immediately threw the ball back to officials upon doing so, and shattered Herman Moore’s mark with 143 by year’s end. Hines Ward was a distant second with 112. Harrison’s 1,722 yards led the field by nearly 400 as well. This set the table for Manning’s run of MVPs.

While a “feat. Randy Moss” credit is necessary, Cunningham proved he could thrive as a pocket passer. The unretired quarterback experienced frequent criticism as a passer in Philadelphia, but at 35, he took advantage of the best weaponry array of his career. Terrell Davis’ 2,000-yard season clinched MVP honors, but Cunningham threw for 3,704 yards in 34 touchdown passes in 14 starts. The Vikings had gone 9-7 in 1997; with Cunningham (and Moss) in ’98: 15-1. Behind Cunningham, Minnesota broke a 15-year-old scoring record with 556 points.

This was not a good year to wage an MVP campaign, with Patrick Mahomes setting the league ablaze. But Donald coasted to Defensive Player of the Year acclaim, soaring to a 20.5-sack season. The Rams defensive tackle flourished under Wade Phillips, helping them to Super Bowl LIII. While their defense was not statistically great, Donald helped compensate — most notably in Los Angeles’ epic Monday-night win over Kansas City, when Donald stripped Mahomes twice. Donald seized the “best defender alive” belt during J.J. Watt’s previous injury hiatus and has not given it back.

From 1990-97, either Smith or Barry Sanders won the rushing title. Behind another dominant offensive line, Smith took his turn in 1995 and led Dallas to its third Super Bowl title in four years. Smith broke John Riggins’ 12-year-old record with 25 rushing touchdowns — 10 more than anyone else in 1995 — and led the league with 1,773 rushing yards. Four of Smith’s five O-linemen made the Pro Bowl, with Hall of Fame guard Larry Allen — not present on the previous two Cowboy Super Bowl teams — debuting as a full-time starter in ’95. Brett Favre’s first MVP season edged out Smith.
6 of 30
25. Rob Gronkowski, 2011
Jeff Fishbein/Icon Sportswire
Gronkowski began his long run as the NFL’s best tight end in his sophomore campaign. Despite being a second-round pick with an injury past, Gronk set the tight end receiving record (1,327 yards). That has been broken, but the ex-Patriot icon’s 17 touchdown catches remain the tight end standard. Gronkowski’s emergence helped the worst of Bill Belichick’s Patriots defenses (31st in yards) to Super Bowl XLVI and opened the door to another set of Tom Brady Super Bowl appearances (four pre-Gronk, six post). Brady finished with a career-high 5,325 yards in 2011. No tight end dominated more than Gronk during his Pats years.

24. Deacon Jones, 1967
Vic Stein/Getty Images
Although sacks were not official until 1982, pass rushers had field days dropping QBs in anonymity. Defenders could mug receivers, and O-linemen were heavily restricted in how they could block until the late 1970s. Jones also had his since-banned head-slap maneuver. That said, Jones was an all-time menace in his heyday. Accounts vary on his masterpiece season, but the Rams defensive end recorded between 21.5 and 26 sacks during a year in which Los Angeles went 11-1-2 to lead the NFL. This was Jones at his peak, at age 29, he teamed with fellow Hall of Famer Merlin Olsen to power a talented Rams team.

23. Jim Brown, 1959
Malcolm W. Emmons/Sporting News via Getty Images
This list could devolve into “Best non-MVP Jim Brown seasons.” The Cleveland phenom was in the heart of an unparalleled prime in his third season. The result: a runaway rushing title. Only two running backs eclipsed 900 rushing yards in 1959. Brown came in at 1,329 — 293 ahead of second-place J.D. Smith of the 49ers — in the 12-game season. Cleveland had two Hall of Famers in its backfield that year, in Brown and Bobby Mitchell. They combined for over 2,000 yards. The 1957 and ’58 MVP, Brown scored 14 touchdowns but lost out to Johnny Unitas for the award.
9 of 30
22. Jamal Lewis, 2003
Bill Vaughan/Icon Sportswire
No. 3 on the all-time single-season rushing list, Lewis lost out on MVP acclaim when Peyton Manning and Steve McNair shared it. Lewis bizarrely ranked fourth, behind Brady as well, after carrying Baltimore’s offense to a 10-6 record and an AFC North title. The Ravens used a first-round pick on Kyle Boller and used him and journeyman Anthony Wright in Lewis’ fourth year. The Ravens ranked 32nd in passing yards but turned to their hardnosed back, who broke the single-game rushing record in Week 2 (295 yards) and finished with 2,066 to go with 14 TDs. This was Lewis’ only Pro Bowl or All-Pro season.
Monica Davey/Getty Images
Voyaging to back-to-back Super Bowl routs, the Cowboys were 3-0 against the 49ers from 1992-93. Each win came by double digits. With Sanders as a one-year hired gun, San Francisco beat Dallas twice en route to a Super Bowl blowout. The era’s premier cover man changed the course of modern NFL history, joining Steve Young and Co. in stopping a Cowboys three-peat. Despite signing in September and missing two games, Sanders intercepted six passes and took three back for TDs. The ex-Falcon and future Cowboy totaled 303 return yards and dueled with No. 1 wideouts, helping the 49ers go from 16th to sixth in scoring defense.
11 of 30
20. Ray Lewis, 2000
John Iacono/SI/Icon Sportswire
Statistically, Lewis’ 2003 Defensive Player of the Year campaign was better. But the Ravens middle linebacker made a defining team defensive season possible. Wearing bigger shoulder pads and sporting a bulkier physique due to the era, Lewis was still a sideline-to-sideline demon who led Baltimore to a 12-4 record. Lewis’ 137 tackles (14 for loss) and two INTs were not career-highs, but the Ravens held the opposition to 10.3 points per game — the lowest in the 16-game era’s 43 years — and won two games in which its offense failed to score a touchdown. The Super Bowl champs do not hit these heights without their 25-year-old leader.
Johnson did not receive an MVP vote, with Adrian Peterson edging Peyton Manning during a season that featured a 4-12 Lions team, but he left no doubt as to the NFL’s wideout of the moment. Megatron broke Jerry Rice’s 17-year-old record with a 1,964-yard season. Only one receiver, Andre Johnson, came within 400 yards of the 6-foot-5 marvel in 2012. While today’s wideouts have easier paths to production, and the Lions phenom only scored five TDs, Megatron dropped both of his 200-yard games on playoff opposition and broke Rice’s record in an 11-catch, 225-yard Week 16 day against a Falcons team on its way to the NFC’s No. 1 seed.
13 of 30
18. Randall Cunningham, 1990
Cunningham ran into perhaps the toughest MVP luck of anyone, finishing second in the AP balloting four times. Joe Montana won in 1990, but Cunningham received 18 votes (to the 49ers QB’s 26) and had a clear case. The Eagles QB dropped an ahead-of-its-time 3,466-942 passing-rushing double that featured 30 TD passes and five more rushing scores. Cunningham’s 30 touchdown passes — highlighted by this one — ranked second to Warren Moon, and in a season in which the Eagles defense ranked only 12th, their quarterback powered the team to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth out of an all-time great division.
Rich Kane/Icon Sportswire
Reed’s “best safety ever” claim began in his third season. The Ravens were still trying Kyle Boller at quarterback and ranked 31st in total offense. They still went 9-7, behind the league’s No. 6-ranked defense. Reed was at the epicenter of this effort, intercepting nine passes and returning them for a then-record 358 yards. Reed thwarted a Browns game-tying touchdown attempt with a 106-yard pick-six; he broke this NFL record four years later. Overall in 2004, the ex-Miami Hurricane totaled 12 forced turnovers for 402 yards and two TDs. It is hard for a modern safety to be more productive.
15 of 30
16. Barry Sanders, 1994
Brian Cleary/Getty Images
The Lions went from starting three QBs in 1993 to turning to Scott Mitchell and a 36-year-old Dave Krieg in 1994. Fortunately, they had the era’s best running back. Sanders broke through to power the Lions back to the playoffs, rushing for 1,883 yards on 5.7 per carry. Detroit ranked 24th in passing yards in a 28-team league. Sanders’ masterpiece came in Week 3 when the Lions beat the defending champion Cowboys after their running back’s 40-carry, 194-yard night. This was the second of Sanders’ four rushing titles; he led the league by more than 300 yards.
16 of 30
15. J.J. Watt, 2014
Juan DeLeon/Icon Sportswire
This Watt version became the only defender to receive more than one MVP vote since James Harrison in 2008. Watt garnered 13 — the most any defensive player has since Lawrence Taylor won the award in 1986. Watt recorded 20.5 sacks, a career-high 51 QB hits and 29 tackles for loss (tied, with 2015 Watt, for second in the TFL era). His MVP push centered on touchdowns. The fourth-year Texan scored five — on a pick-six, a fumble-six and, in a one-year-only role, three as a tight end. Illustrating defenders’ MVP futility, this perfect storm could not top Aaron Rodgers’ third-best season.
17 of 30
14. Jerry Rice, 1995
Joseph Patronite/Getty Images
In a year that featured passing numbers balloon leaguewide, the 49ers played five games without Steve Young. At 33, Rice confirmed his prime was not finished. In the middle of an unapproached span of 10 first-team All-Pro nods in 11 years, Rice broke the single-season receiving record with 1,848 yards. In the five-game stretch with second-year backup Elvis Grbac, Rice posted four 100-yard games — including a 161-yard performance in a 49ers upset win in Dallas. The all-time receiving kingpin punctuated his season with a 289-yard showing on a December Monday night against the Vikings.
18 of 30
13. Lester Hayes, 1980
Arthur Anderson/Getty Images
In the third year of the NFL’s shift toward a pass-focused product, Hayes dropped a throwback season that made a major difference in a Super Bowl push. During eight of his 10 seasons, the Raiders cornerback did not surpass four interceptions. “The Judge” snared 13 INTs in his fourth season and posted 273 return yards. Hayes had four more called back due to penalty and later managed five playoff picks. Yes, the since-banned Stickum was heavily involved. But Hayes did not stack these picks against bad QBs; he intercepted a pass in 12 games. In the 40 seasons since, only one player — the Cowboys’ Everson Walls — has even reached 11 INTs.
Tony Medina/Icon Sportswire
Venturing into Sanders territory and doing so in a pass-crazed era, Johnson set the NFL record for scrimmage yards with 2,509 in his second season. “CK2K” spawned because of this season, and although the Titans’ 8-8 record (after an 0-6 start) kept Johnson off the MVP radar, it remains an all-time great slate in rushing annals. After being held under 100 yards in four of his first five games, Johnson finished with 11 straight three-digit outings. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry and accomplished all this against teams geared toward stopping him and not Vince Young.
20 of 30
11. Charley Hennigan, 1961
Joe Robbins/Getty Images
So obscure that photos have proven elusive, Hennigan was the 1961 AFL champion Oilers’ top yard-gainer. But the wide receiver’s total resided in another stratosphere compared to peers. In a 14-game season, Hennigan posted 1,746 yards. Even in what became a pass-friendly AFL, that total bested all other receivers by nearly 600. The 6-foot-1 ex-high school biology teacher’s 82 catches did not lead the league, and Bill Groman’s 17 TD grabs paced the Oilers. Hennigan, however, averaged 21.3 yards per catch and had three 200-yard games in teaming with George Blanda. Hennigan’s single-season record stood for 34 years.
21 of 30
10. J.J. Watt, 2012
Juan DeLeon/Icon Sportswire
Watt is far from the best player on this list, but it is impossible to exclude his second season. The Texans defensive end delivered one of modern sports’ signature breakouts, running up a mind-boggling combination of numbers. Watt’s 20.5 sacks led the league, but his peripheral stats are more impressive. The interior pass rusher recorded 39 tackles for loss. For perspective, no one else since TFLs became charted (in 1999) has surpassed 30. No non-Watt season has ever topped 28. The 23-year-old sensation also forced four fumbles and tallied 16 passes defensed — seven more than any other D-lineman that year — in the Texans’ 12-4 season.
22 of 30
9. Earl Campbell, 1980
Bill Smith/Getty Images
Winding down their “Luv Ya Blue” run, the Oilers traded Dan Pastorini for Ken Stabler in 1980. The future Hall of Famer threw 13 TD passes and 28 INTs. The Oilers still went 11-5 and won the AFC Central for the first time. This happened because Campbell was unstoppable in his third season. Browns QB Brian Sipe won MVP honors, but this was Campbell’s defining season. He amassed career highs in rushing yards (1,934) and yards per carry (5.2) and dominated despite presenting nary a receiving threat (47 yards). Campbell’s career steadily declined after this, but his ’80 season is a time-capsule rushing year.
Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire
The heart of Brees’ Saints dominance saw Dan Marino’s 27-year-old single-season yardage record fall and the New Orleans QB lead the NFL in touchdown passes (46) and completion percentage (a then-record 71.2 figure). But Aaron Rodgers garnered 48 of the 50 MVP votes while leading a 15-1 Packers team. Helping Jimmy Graham become an all-time fantasy sleeper, Brees threw for 5,476 yards to lead a 13-3 Saints team. The future career pass yardage kingpin threw at least one touchdown pass in every game, on his way to breaking Johnny Unitas’ record for consecutive games with a TD toss in 2012. That currently stands at 54.
24 of 30
7. Randy Moss, 2007
Robert E. Klein/Icon Sportswire
The season that lifted Tom Brady onto the elite quarterback tier can be traced to the Patriots swindling the Raiders for Moss . Bill Belichick giving up a fourth-round pick for the 30-year-old superstar transformed the Patriots, and though Brady was the unanimous MVP, Moss kind of deserved co-MVP acclaim. Moss caught 98 passes for 1,493 yards and an NFL-record 23 touchdowns. Just as he catalyzed the 1998 Vikings, Moss lifted the Pats to the NFL’s lone 16-0 season. Brady’s TD number ballooned from 24 in a non-Pro Bowl 2006 season to 50. That record has fallen; no one has approached Moss’ TD standard.
25 of 30
6. Jerry Rice, 1987
John McDonough/Icon Sportswire
Fantasy players in the discipline’s infancy cleaned up if they drafted Rice in his third season. It is both a dominant display indicative of the wideout deity’s future while simultaneously a tantalizing “what if?” year. Due to a players’ strike, Rice played 12 games. He caught 22 touchdown passes. Only one other player topped eight that year. Rice also added a rushing score, and his 1,078 yards would have led the league had Cardinals wideout J.T. Smith not crossed the picket line. The 49ers went 13-2, and Rice and Joe Montana split MVP votes in a year when John Elway won. It took Moss all 16 games to break Rice’s record.
26 of 30
5. Marshall Faulk, 1999
Todd Warshaw/Icon Sportswire
In a three-year stretch when the Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” claimed three MVP awards, Faulk scored 26 touchdowns to win the award in 2000. His Rams debut may have been better. Acquired from the Colts that spring, Faulk became the second player in NFL history to go 1,000-1,000. Kurt Warner won the 1999 MVP, but Faulk was the biggest difference between a bad 1998 Rams team and its Super Bowl champion outfit. The explosive back reached 2,429 scrimmage yards — still second-most all time — and averaged 5.5 per carry in his age-26 season, one that drove St. Louis to a championship.
27 of 30
4. Reggie White, 1987
George Gojkovich/Getty Images
In addition to Rice’s unfathomable TD edge on his peers, 1987 featured a fellow all-time great lap his contemporaries in sacks. Like Rice, White played 12 games because of the strike. He registered a career-high 21 sacks — 8.5 more than anyone else. While the historically gifted power rusher was a star from the jump after two USFL seasons, White’s monster third NFL slate did not come from big games. He notched a sack in 11 games and got to 21 without a four-sack showing. White’s consistency would remain until the late 1990s. The record Michael Strahan owns would be buried had the NFL’s regulars played 16 games in 1987.
28 of 30
3. Eric Dickerson, 1984
David Madison/Getty Images
During their lengthy period without a reliable quarterback, the Rams landed an offensive centerpiece in the 1983 first round. A year later, Dickerson set the NFL rushing record. After totaling 390 carries as a rookie, Dickerson logged 379 and turned those into 2,105 yards — a number that has topped info graphics for a generation. He rushed for 14 TDs, averaging 5.6 yards per carry, and was so effective the Rams barely threw to him (139 yards). The Rams made the playoffs with career backup Jeff Kemp as their primary starting quarterback, ranking 27th in passing and winning 10 games. Dan Marino cruised to MVP honors in ’84.

2. O.J. Simpson, 1975

Simpson’s prime goes understandably overlooked now, but in addition to his 1973 2,000-yard MVP season, the Bills running back was perhaps even better two years later. At 28, Simpson led the NFL in rushing for the third time in four years. He got to 1,817 yards on 5.5 per carry but far exceeded his ’73 work in other areas. After a 12-TD 1973, Simpson scored 23 times in ’75 and eclipsed his scrimmage-yards total as well by reaching 2,243 — easily the best mark in the NFL’s 14-game era. Buffalo went 8-6 and missed the playoffs, further obscuring this transcendent season.

1. Jim Brown, 1963

Y.A. Tittle’s 36 touchdown passes earned him MVP honors; the Giants finished 11-3 to the Browns’ 10-4. But there is no satisfactory explanation for the most dominant player in NFL history’s best season receiving seven votes to Tittle’s 33. Brown’s 1,863 rushing yards broke his own NFL record by 336. He averaged 6.4 per carry and a career-best 133 per game and totaled 15 TDs. A better illustration of the gap between Cleveland’s fullback terminator and the other men paid to take handoffs: Jim Taylor — the 1962 MVP — ranked second with 1,018 yards. Respected as he is, Brown is underrated. His three MVPs are not enough.
Tom Brady? Better than Muhammad Ali? Really?Photo: APSomehow, someone decided that that speculation of Tom Brady’s standing amongst all athletes following Sunday’s Super Bowl was a spectacular idea. And days later, here we are, still extrapolating over it.The idea that Brady is the greatest and most-accomplished quarterback of all-time goes without saying. The best athlete ever allows more room for debate, but as someone who doesn’t particularly value football in the same way most Americans traditionally do, I simply and respectfully don’t care that much. But to suggest that an uber-accomplished pocket passer is the best athlete of all time, or even of our time, is a flawed premise to pontificate from, given the greatness emanating from one-on-one sports, which generally deserve to be held in higher regard when having this spirited debate, especially in comparison to team-based players, like quarterbacks and pitchers, because they’re only on the field for roughly half the game. In basketball, you at least play both ends of the floor, and if you’re Michael Jordan or LeBron James, you’ll log over 40 minutes in meaningful playoff games, as opposed to 31 time of possession minutes in a 60-minute game, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had in the Super Bowl. Jordan and James have four other teammates each, but it’s not like Ron Harper, Luc Longley, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman were going to line up and block for MJ as he stood at the top of the key and took jumpers all game. Football is more strategic because of the many moving parts. But as we rightfully mention Serena Williams, Usain Bolt, Wayne Gretzky, Simone Biles, and Tiger Woods in these GOAT athlete discussions, we’re dismissing arguably the most difficult art-forms that have spawned excellence: Combat sports. Boxing and mixed martial arts, in particular.Why? Because a lot of people don’t know how to talk about them despite being paid, in some form, to do so. G/O Media may get a commissionMany outlets avoid discussing boxing or mixed martial arts, whether it’d be about a lack of knowledge, limited intrigue, or a lust for easier understood and clickable athletics that are easily palatable for traditional American sports fans. Additionally, the disrespect of combat sport athletes might be for the better, because they infrequently hire anyone who knows what they’re talking about in these areas anyway, generally speaking. Even at ESPN, whose coverage around MMA and boxing has been excellent even during a pandemic (but the utilization of Stephen A. Smith around MMA in particular, an art form he’s clearly not knowledgeable of, highlights that even despite the network’s massive UFC contract), we collectively don’t know how to discuss these sports in the mainstream. Higher-ups will tell you that it’ll bring eyeballs to the sport, but plenty of people who care about the art would retort, “So?”In any event, the lack of knowledge or care to obtain said knowledge is a gift and a curse that impacts one-on-one sports in “greatest athlete ever” discussions. Muhammad Ali, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Amanda Nunes, Floyd Mayweather, Georges St. Pierre, and Claressa Shields are among the names who should be mentioned in these conversations before most, and especially football players who are individually extremely reliant on others during play. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if we’re cross-sport comparing, it needs to be accounted for. In fighting, while you do have your team in your corner, it’s just you and your opponent. In tennis, it’s the same principle minus the actual fighting, which is another huge element of this. Have you understood what it takes to fight? Especially now!?The disparity that plagues boxing and MMA’s media presence is evident in its coverage. Combat sports-focused sites are, by definition, combat sports-focused sites. They’re niche in nature and would usually be the authorities in combat content coverage. General sites typically focus on the one percent of boxers and MMA athletes who may drive traffic, which means they should theoretically include the greatest within the sports in these discussions, but that’s not the sensibility of casual observers. And as far as the actual comparison goes, let’s just say the accomplishments together out loud. Khabib is 29-0 and definitively lost one round in his entire career (the second against Conor McGregor in October 2018). Mayweather went 50-0, won 15 World Titles, was knocked down once in 397 rounds, and was rarely ever touched. Nunes (20-4) is the only woman to unify two UFC titles, the first person to defend both titles while simultaneously holding them, and has a resume that includes victories over the most elite fighters of her time, like Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, and Cris Cyborg, all by first-round knockout. Shields (9-0, with only one amateur loss ever) is the only American boxer ever to win two Olympic medals in consecutive Olympics and the only woman to have two gold medals in the sport. By age 25, she became a nine-time world champion, and she’ll be competing in both boxing and MMA moving forward. GSP is a two-division world champion who went 26-2 almost entirely in the UFC and really helped put the promotion on the map. Both losses on his record were avenged, and he finished his career winning 12 straight championship bouts. And Ali? I mean, c’mon. Brady is a savant of his craft; his craft just doesn’t outweigh fighters in this specific deliberation. Football players usually are tremendous athletes, but you can’t compare the greatness of a several-time champion pocket passer dependent on offensive line play, route-running, sure-handedness, and competent defense to a several-time world champion in fighting who almost never loses. And in some cases, they never do. Individual athletes should normally be held in higher regard during these fun stupid discussions, fighters especially. It would help everyone learn just a bit more if more people cared to recognize that. .
Despite having family members nearly die due to COVID-19, Tom Brady continues to go maskless, Image: Getty ImagesTom Brady has won so many Lombardi Trophies that he just doesn’t seem to care anymore. It must be like being so rich that you can have whatever and however many cars you want, and just hand the keys to your McLaren to your teenager. After all, if something happens to it, it’s not a big deal – you have another one in the offsite air hanger that you use as a garage. Brady also apparently has never been drunk before. Doing his best college-kid-on-spring-break-in-Florida impression, he appeared quite sauced during the Super Bowl celebratory boat race thing that they decided to do in Tampa Bay. So much so, in fact, that he decided to chuck the Lombardi Trophy from his boat to a waiting Rob Gronkowski on another boat. I could write a dumb joke about “oh look, another Super Bowl touchdown pass from Brady to Gronk,” but I won’t. So played out.While it’s all fun and games to joke about his carelessness with a trophy, it’s also complete and total bullshit that there wasn’t a single mask to be seen. Apparently, he’s as careless with the trophy as he is with COVID. His father was in a life-and-death battle with COVID, and his mother is a cancer survivor. Brady’s father recently said that he wants his son to wear a mask more often. Apparently, Tom didn’t feel like listening to his father, as exemplified by not only his boat party shenanigans, but also by him arriving for the Super Bowl without wearing a mask. Oh, and that time he didn’t wear one after the NFC Championship Game. Or the time he got busted for not wearing one at Bucs’ workouts.Brady has demonstrated, continuously, that he is living in his own little world, doing whatever he damn well pleases, detached and unbothered by social issues, racism, the health of the community he lives in, and the health of his own family. Read the room, Tom. Your dad almost dies. Your mom is high risk. Wear a damn mask. .
Should Derek Henry be on the cover of Madden 2022?Image: Getty ImagesWith the Super Bowl over, it’s time to begin arguing about this year’s Madden cover.Historically, the franchise selects an exciting, typically young offensive player, with a clean reputation, to front its annual release. (Antonio Brown’s Madden 19 feature came before all that, so don’t count on a Tyreek Hill cover.)Defensive players appear much less often, with Richard Sherman on Madden 15, Troy Polamalu on (half) of Madden 10, Ray Lewis on Madden 05. With only two and a half covers in total, defenders are clearly few and far between, and there is no obvious defensive choice for Madden 22 as there had been in Sherman’s year, or if, say, Darrelle Revis had been selected around 2010 or so. That said, with each passing year, Aaron Donald’s reputation as the arguable best ever grows. Donald won’t turn 30 until May and has already made a Pro Bowl in each of his seven NFL seasons. Despite being primarily a defensive tackle — who is regularly double-teamed — Donald has accumulated 85.5 sacks through his career, as well as 131 tackles for loss and 19 forced fumbles. Let’s make him a perennial honorable mention for a Madden cover until the day he retires, because he’s just that good.With that aside, let’s look at the frontrunners for Madden 22’s cover. .

Tom Brady, the greatest athlete ever? Come on.Illustration: Getty ImagesOnce Tom Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring on Sunday, you knew people would gush all over the 43-year-old Tampa Bay quarterback.It was a natural.After all, it gave Brady more championships than any other franchise in the league. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots both own six championships, one behind Brady now.Many jumped at the chance to proclaim Brady was the Greatest Of All Time in the NFL — whether he was directly involved in his team actually winning the game or not.Brady has won more than half of his titles on the backs of his team’s defense, including this Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs.G/O Media may get a commissionFor the Brady fanboys, it didn’t matter. It was all about the ring total.Even if you didn’t fully agree, you could understand why some would make the case for him.Enter jumping the shark, going off the rails.The next leap was that Brady was the greatest team-sport athlete ever.Somehow, Brady had passed Michael Jordan now because Brady has seven rings to Jordan’s six.The notion just didn’t feel silly, it felt like there was more to the narrative, a sinister message, if you will.Plain and simple, it was the propping up of a white athlete over all Black athletes.Yes, it felt like the Great White Hope agenda. Especially to some in Black America.Some people, or so it seems, want the message to be that Brady, a former sixth-round draft pick, was not only the best player in a sport that is 70 percent Black, but the best in all sports.The leap isn’t logical at all.First of all, there’s Jordan, who was 6-0 in NBA Finals and won all six NBA Finals MVPs in the process.Then, there’s Bill Russell, who won 11 NBA championships in 13 seasons with the Boston Celtics.There’s LeBron James, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, and many others.Heck, there are other white players who won in team sports more than Brady. The Yankee’s Yogi Berra won 10 World Series in New York.So it can’t just be a ring count that makes you the greatest.And even as great as Brady is, many will concede that he isn’t the best quarterback ever. Maybe, the most accomplished — because of all his records and titles — but hardly the greatest who ever played.Even Hall of Fame former Packers’ QB Brett Favre couldn’t co-sign that. Here’s what he said about Brady on a Boston radio show:“I think Tom Brady, his leadership, his competitiveness, you know, is he the most talented quarterback? I don’t think anyone would say that, but he’s got the It factor that you hear people talk about.”The “It factor” is a long cry from being the greatest team-sport athlete.This current over-the-top narrative feels like when Larry Bird came on the scene in the NBA. Fans and TV announcers talked about Bird’s play as if he’d invented basketball. There was the feeling that there was a narrative that the best player in an 80 percent Black league was white.Obviously, Bird was a great player. It wasn’t as if they were trying to push a bum.We’ve seen that in boxing with the likes of heavyweight Gerry Cooney, a made-up contender who never won jack.But the Bird hype put off some folks so much that Dennis Rodman and Isiah Thomas pushed back and called it out at the time.Rodman said in 1987 that Bird was overrated because he was white. “I don’t think he’s the greatest player,” Rodman said to the media back then. “Why does he get so much publicity? Because he’s white. You never hear about Black players being the greatest.”Both players were made to apologize for their comments. But they were legitimate and honest. Many Black fans sitting at home heard the same coming through their TVs.“The big controversy isn’t about my saying professional athletes are stereotyped,” Thomas told the New York Times. “The controversy is that I said Larry Bird, if he was Black, would be just another good guy. But I think you would all agree that stereotypes do exist.”For sure, Brady is a great player, hardly the greatest. It’s just some say he is in the hope of convincing others that he actually is. .

Steph Curry and the Warriors have been experiencing a turbulent season so far. The Warriors have been inconsistent at best, with their team in a transition period at the moment. Curry has led the Warriors to a 12-12 record so far, but the team is looking doubtful for the playoffs despite the two-time MVP’s heroics. Steph Curry wants to play past 40 Curry spoke to the Huddle and Flow podcast recently, where he shared this desire to prolong his NBA career. Much of the inspiration comes from his father and former NBA player Dell Curry. Dell played in the NBA for 16 years, and now, his son wants to follow in his footsteps. Despite turning 33 this year, Curry feels great and thinks he can play for a long time.

I got to see how his body changed over the years, especially those last six — all the work that went into getting ready for a season. I’m about to be 33 next month, feel really, really good — fresh, able to still do everything I want to do on the court. Curry taking inspiration from Brady Steph Curry noted that he would like to play until the age of 40. While that can be a challenge for athletes, he pointed to the example of NFL legend Tom Brady, who has found great success in his 40s. Curry’s primary goal is to take care of his body and adapt his game accordingly, and this would help him keep going for a few more years.

Straight up and down you can’t hide anywhere when you’re out there. Maybe a little bit of a different conversation, but to Tom’s point, just getting your body where you go out on your own terms is the goal. However long or however many years that is. Pushing 40 would be amazing.” READ MORE: Tom Brady – A History of His Super Bowl Appearances Can Steph Curry play into his 40s? He’s one of the many NBA players whose game is not reliant on athleticism, but rather on skill. A lot of players tend to adapt to their strengths and switch their game to extend their careers. It is very likely that Steph can adjust his game in order to achieve his goal of playing into his 40s. Get notified about breaking news and watch highlights on the go; join the Arena on NBA Hoops
