After helping the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Super Bowl in his first season with the team, everyone wants in on the greatness of Tom Brady. His remarkable ability to win games has big names already interested in the Buccaneers ahead of the 2021 NFL free agency.

While not an upcoming free agent, Odell Beckham Jr. could be a trade candidate this offseason, and he has his eyes on a potential destination if he is moved.

That's right, OBJ and Brady could link up in Tampa. According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the two have talked about wanting to play together before.

It's no guarantee that it happens this season, especially with the Bucs' WR corps already being strong and them potentially bringing back the wideouts who helped get them to the Super Bowl, but Brady doesn't have much time left. If the two wanted to seriously consider pairing up, this offseason could be the perfect time.

Tampa will see Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown both enter free agency in 2021. While some think they'll be back with the Bucs, the team could pursue OBJ -- who has a cap hit of just $15 million over the next three seasons -- and give them a deadly 1-2 punch along with Mike Evans.

With the tenth-most projected cap space in 2021, the Buccaneers have the room to make a Beckham Jr. deal happen, but with key free agents on both sides of the ball, they risk losing important contributors if that's the route they do go. Still, a Brady-Evans-OBJ trio is almsot too scary to pass up.
