Remember when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady? What about when tight end Rob Gronkowski came out of retirement to play with his friend and longtime teammate?
If you remember those, do you remember the circumstances leading to running back Leonard Fournette joining the Bucs squad in 2020? Or Antonio Brown for that matter?
You might remember them all, but you don’t know those moments, and the build-up to them, the way Bruce Arians, Jason Licht, the players, and other members of the Buccaneers organization do.
Fortunately, author Lars Anderson has access to all the players in this story of champions assembled, and he’s sharing everything he’s learned with readers in his new book titled, “A Season in the Sun: The Inside Story of Bruce Arians, Tom Brady, and the Making of a Champion”.
With a foreword by Arians himself, the book chronicles the assembling of a Super Bowl roster that didn’t hit their stride until after they started the season 7-5, with more questions than answers it would seem at the time.
Eight wins in a row later, the Bucs were Super Bowl LV Champions, and as Anderson points out in our interview for the Locked On Bucs Podcast, every new member who joined the team to play with Brady, scored a touchdown in that 31-9 win over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
An expert on all things Arians, Anderson also wrote “The Quarterback Whisperer” with the head coach, then with the Arizona Cardinals.
This new book, “A Season in the Sun”, is about as thorough an inside look as you can get, and it’s done with the blessing and support of those who lived it.
More than just a book, Anderson offers a glimpse inside the franchise following an unprecedented season where media had as little access as ever, due to COVID-19.
It goes on sale on October 19th, 2021, and is a must-have for every fan of the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
