The legendary QB, who wound up being the Super Bowl LV MVP, signing with Tampa Bay after spending 20 years in New England was one thing. The fact that the Bucs went back to their popular red and white jerseys worn from 1997-2013 was another. Throw in the new popular pewter alternate jerseys and it was easy to see why his jersey was the most sought after.
