The excitement comes from the chance to play with a guy that has been an NFL staple for two decades. He also happens to be the winningest player currently in the league with six world championships to his name and four Super Bowl MVP awards. With all that experience, his teammates are bound to be able to learn a thing or two from him.
"The guy has played in the NFL for 20 years at that high of a level, there's a lot of things that he can teach you," said Jensen. "I think that'll be good for the team and offense as a whole to tap into that knowledge and experience. He's seen pretty much everything so there's nothing that's really going to catch him off guard."
But what about what the Bucs can do for Brady? Specifically, the line? Jensen anchors an interior that includes left guard Ali Marpet, who is one of the best at his position, and right guard Alex Cappa, who made big strides in his second year in the league. Left tackle Donovan Smith is there to lock down Brady's blind side and the team just signed versatile former Colt Joe Haeg, who has played both tackle spots and all along the interior. In them, Jensen sees a unit that is ready to complement Brady and his playing style.
"When you watch Tom, he gets rid of the ball on time," said Jensen. "Statistically, he's getting rid of the ball sometimes a half second sooner than a lot of quarterbacks. That helps the line. With us, that allows us to be a little bit more aggressive at the line of scrimmage in passing downs - to jump set and keep the pocket a little bit firmer."
