Tom Brady

The seven-time Super Bowl champ, who brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Tampa Bay in his first season, embarks on Year 2 with the Bucs. He was the last NFL quarterback to guide his team to back-to-back championship seasons, while with the Patriots. He aims to do it again, this time with the Bucs.
