Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady wore No. 12 during his entire two-decade stint in New England. Unfortunately for Brady, his new No. 2 receiver, Chris Godwin, had already had laid claim to that jersey prior to his arrival. Rather than get into some sort of public tete-a-tete about who should wear the number, Godwin allowed TB12 to take No. 12 all for himself. Godwin, who changed to No. 14 for the 2020 season, claims he gave up No. 12 without twisting Brady's arm and forcing him to pay up for his number because Brady is "the GOAT."
Godwin, who set new career-highs with 86 catches, 1,333 yards, and nine touchdowns in his first season under Arians, figures to get an even bigger boost to his statsheet this season, as Brady is going to turn the ball over as frequently as Jameis Winston did.
The speedy Godwin will pair with the athletic marvel that is Mike Evans to form the best wide receiver room Brady has has since the Randy Moss/Wes Welker days in New England.
With No. 12 at quarterback, the dynamic duo of No. 13 and No. 14 at wide receiver, and Bruce Arians calling the shots, Tampa figures to have one of the most electric offenses in the entire league, all in numerical order.
