Tom Brady Officially Gets Beloved #12 From Chris Godwin

Tom Brady Officially Gets Beloved #12 From Chris Godwin

Fans can preorder a Tom Brady Buccaneers No. 12 jersey at Fanatics.

Brady wore No. 10 while at MI, but had No. 12 in his two decades with the New England Patriots and will keep it with the Buccaneers.

"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".

David also added he's "never seen anything like this before" while pointing at what we can only assume is Tampa Bay's new pewter jersey. "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've got to kind of lean into that respect, you know?"

It may end up being a great investment for Godwin.

The problem is, wide receiver Chris Godwin has been wearing the No. 12 for the Buccaneers.


"Gave it to him out of respect", Dandy said.

But, there was no drama this time around. with Godwin just handing the number to Brady - no strings attached. The most famous number 12 in Buccaneers history is now quarterback Doug Williams, a member of the team's Ring of Honor at Raymond James Stadium, though Brady's arrival obviously changes that.

Brady wore number 12 for his entire career in New England, but the number was assigned to him as a rookie.

Now Godwin takes on a jersey number that, until Franklin's one-game cameo past year, had only been worn by quarterbacks in team annals. They most recently overhauled their look in 2014.

Brady, who had spent the past 20 seasons with the Patriots wearing No. 12, signed a new deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago.
