BOSTON (CBS) — It’s official: Tom Brady will continue to be TB12 in Tampa Bay. Heck, the nickname fits even more now that TB is in TB.
The Buccaneers made the announcement Tuesday afternoon on their Twitter account, with Brady getting the only number he’s worn in the NFL, and receiver Chris Godwin switching to No. 14. There was no exchange between the two players for the digits, according to Buccaneers.com, as Godwin gave Brady his old number out of respect.READ MORE: Woman Found Dead Inside Lowell Residence, DA Investigating As Apparent Homicide

The Bucs could use some photoshop lessons though, as they tweeted out a photo of Brady in his Patriots No. 12 jersey:

Maybe the cartoonist at Brady’s TB Times can give them a hand. Or they can ask Godwin to do it for them next time.
