NFL - US Sports: Bucs bid to fill holes after Brady pep talk

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen says Tom Brady wants "to make sure we do everything to win it all next year" after putting his retirement on hold.

The Bucs, who are 17/2 to win Super Bowl LVII, are already making plans to strengthen the supporting cast around the returning star.

Brady outlines plan

The 44-year-old had a list of improvements he wanted to share with Tampa's coaching staff in his first call back to base after announcing his 40-day retirement was over.

Christensen, who has been the Bucs' QB coach since 2019, admitted it felt like nothing had changed when he heard Brady's voice again.

"It felt like the morning after we had just lost to the Rams," Christensen told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

"He had a list. He said, 'Here's how we can be better.' I think he had been out of retirement 12 hours or so by then."

And now that finding a new QB is no longer a priority, Christensen says the Bucs' focus is on plugging the other holes on the roster.

"I think he will play really, really well again and a lot of it will depend on who is in the surrounding cast," added the former Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins coach.

"There's still a lot of holes. You've got to fill those darn holes. We've got to find a receiver or two. We weren't the same when (Chris Godwin) and (Antonio Brown) went down (with injuries).

"I think a lot will depend on who is the surrounding cast and what changes are made. Everyone knows we've got to run the ball better."
