For some of the best standalone quotes from Tuesday's presser, see below:
"Tom is, quite simply, the greatest quarterback to play the game of football. Any time you can add someone of his caliber, you instantly make your organization better. He's got a long list of truly remarkable accomplishments in his career – frankly, too many to mention here."
"Going after Tom in free agency was our number one priority this offseason because we knew he would be a perfect fit for what we are trying to do here. He is a Buccaneer today not for what he has done in the past, but for what we know he can accomplish here in the near future as well."
"Today we begin a new era for the Buccaneers that will define our franchise for many years to come."
"I wish we could start practice tomorrow, but we can't obviously. To have Tom [Brady] lead our football team into the future – I've been very, very blessed as a coach to have been around some of the great ones. Now to have the greatest one of all time, not because, to me, of what he does on the field, but because of what he does for his teammates. He makes everyone better that walks into that huddle. Really, I'm just excited to get started."
"The expectation is for me is to come in and do what I feel is right for the organization and that's to be a great team player. I'm going to try to do everything I can to get up to speed with all of the things that I need to do and what my responsibilities are. I obviously have a ton of trust and respect for Coach [Bruce] Arians [and] for Jason [Licht] and what he has done to build the team and the organization as it is now. I'm thankful to the Glazer family for giving me an opportunity."
"I think, obviously where I've been, I've learned a great deal. As I move forward, like I said the other day, no one cares what you did in the past. They don't care what you did last year, five years ago or 10 years ago. I think hopefully the knowledge I have with my experience playing quarterback will allow me to transition quickly."
"I don't want to get into every process to the decision I was making at the time, but there were a lot of things that really were intriguing to me about the organization – the players, and the coaches and the willingness of everyone to try to accomplish what the goal of playing football is, which is to win."
