Just when you thought things couldn't get better for Tampa Bay and Tom Brady, they've gone out and improved the defense with a huge addition. On Tuesday, news broke that the Bears had agreed to a one-year deal with Akiem Hicks.

Hicks, a former star for the Chicago Bears, is quite the force in the trenches. Come early September, he'll be ready to make some key plays for the Bucs.

Hicks really is a playmaker and he's known to put pressure on quarterbacks. This is bad news for NFC South quarterbacks, other than Brady of course. What a move for Tampa Bay.
