With Tom Brady signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, fans of the NFL will get an opportunity to watch him face Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints twice a year. Besides Brady’s stunning decision, Brees spoke about the increased competition in the NFC South ahead of the 2020 season.
