Bucs quarterback Tom Brady is getting close to buying a $7.5 million waterfront Clearwater mansion, according to TMZ .Brady has been renting Derek Jeter’s Davis Islands mansion , but recently Jeter listed his 22,000-square foot estate for sale at a $29 million asking price, one of the steepest in Tampa Bay.According to TMZ, Brady is expected to close later this week on a 8,548-square foot, gated estate with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half baths, a home gym, media room, billiards room and a theater.But Smith & Associates Real Estate, whom TMZ reports as listing the Clearwater property, disputes the report. A spokesperson initially said Brady “is not associated with the sale of this house.” Listing agent Sophia Vasilaros also re-affirmed "Brady is not buying this house,” adding that “TMZ jumped the gun.” When asked if a trust or company associated with Brady was buying the house, Vasilaros again replied: “No … Tom Brady is not buying this house.”The firm also handles the listing for Jeter’s residence. Lack of privacy was an issue for Brady in Davis Islands. Jeter’s estate is on a public street and faces Hillsborough Bay on the waterfront side, and drew onlookers and boat traffic.“Where I lived in Chestnut Hill (while with the New England Patriots), I was pretty private for a long time,” Brady told Howard Stern in March. “So I forgot, in a way, like people could drive up to your house. You couldn’t drive up to my house where I lived in Chestnut Hill. Here, they could pull right up to the back of the house.“This is a little different because when you go out to the backyard, there’s a lot of boats that have pulled up and people out the front."
