The Tom Brady effect is already in full effect, it would seem.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are re-signing center Ryan Jensen to a three-year, $39 million deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported late Sunday night, per Jensen's agent. Jensen will earn $23 million guaranteed upon signing, Rapoport added.
News of Jensen re-signing with the Bucs came a day before free agency and hours after Brady announced his unretirement. It's hardly a coincidence based on Jensen's social media response.
Jensen is coming off his first Pro Bowl season and has never missed a start in four seasons with the Buccaneers.
The 30-year-old began his career with four seasons in Baltimore, but has emerged as one of the top centers in the game during his stay in Tampa Bay.
It was a huge day for the Buccaneers, and a pretty big night, as well.
