Mayor of Tampa pardons Tom Brady for trespassing transgressions of the past

The former Tampa Chief of Police plants a tongue firmly in cheek and allows some mild crimes to fall by the wayside.

While Tom Brady has certainly made the best of impressions in his first season in Tampa Bay, he’s also committed a couple transgressions along the way.

First there was trespassing in a public park that was closed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. And then there was the attempted home invasion of a neighbor of Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich.

But with the 2020 George Halas trophy securely held at One Buc Place, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 days from becoming the first team in NFL history to host a Super Bowl in their home stadium, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor has decided to show mercy on the six-time NFL champion.

They say winning cures all, and it must for Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, who has decided to forgive all previous transgressions from Brady from the city’s point of view.

Castor also ran into the home invasion victim last night in Tampa’s SoHo district, and we’re all glad to say he’s recovering from the trauma nicely.

So the starting quarterback of the home team should have one less thing on his mind come Sunday evening. Move the betting lines accordingly.
