To those in Tampa Bay who still find it hard to believe that Tom Brady - THE Tom Brady - is a Buccaneer, maybe this will make it feel a little more real.

As subscribers pick up their Sunday papers, they'll find a full-page letter on page 3A that was purchased by the New England Patriots' owners, the Kraft family, addressed to Brady.

"THANK YOU TOM," the top reads, followed by three paragraphs of both thanks and praise.

"For 20 amazing years, you gave us everything you had," it reads. "When you arrived as a sixth-round pick - and the best selection this franchise has ever made - no one imagined all you'd accomplish or how much you'd soon mean to an entire region."

The advertisement then goes on to call Brady the greatest of all time. Not just in New England, but anywhere.

Before signing off, the Krafts had a message for Bucs fans:

"To the Buccaneers fans and Tampa Bay community - take care of him. You got a great one."
