It was shock to Manning that Brady would part with New England coach Bill Belichick.MORE: Former teammate thinks Brady just got ‘fed up’ with Belichick”I was just surprised,” Manning said of Brady’s move to SiriusXM NFL Radio. “So much success and still having success and playing at a high level and making playoffs and everything he has done there in New England, [I’m surprised] that there would be a departure.”Brady adapting to life with the Bucs has been made more difficult by the coronavirus impacting offseason activities, Manning noted. “I think it’s going to be tough for him, just the fact he can’t be doing everything he wants to be doing with the team and getting ready,” Manning said. “It will be interesting how it all plays out — how quickly he can just adjust to a new organization, new players and a new offense, all those new things, especially with the limited timing he’s going to have being with them.”He’s hopeful the quality of the Bucs’ receivers can go at least some way towards easing the 42-year-old’s transition.”When you have got talented receivers it makes it easier to get on the same page because they are getting open,” Manning said. Tampa Bay’s receiving corps is led by wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, and tight ends O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and longtime Brady teammate Rob Gronkowski.Time to run it back @RobGronkowski! pic.twitter.com/d4wmZLUV9n— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) April 22, 2020One of the other top quarterback storylines this offseason emerged in last month’s NFL Draft, when the Packers controversially traded up to select Utah State’s Jordan Love in the first round. Love is now assumed to be the successor to franchise icon Aaron Rodgers.WHEN CAN PACK PART WITH RODGERS? Contract has the clues Manning is sure Rodgers, who had previously spoken of his desire to finish his career at Green Bay in his 40s, would not have liked the move.”It was a little bit of deja vu and kinda how it happened with Brett Favre,” said Manning. “When Aaron Rodgers was drafted to Green Bay, obviously they didn’t trade up, but they took a quarterback in the first round when Favre was still playing well and had years left of playing. “I’m sure Brett wasn’t real fond of that happening and I’m sure Aaron wasn’t real fond of it happening, especially after going 13-3 and playing good football.” Eli Manning was surprised to see his former Super Bowl rival Tom Brady join the Buccaneers. Manning also feels his fellow quarterback will have a tough task adapting during an unusual offseason.Manning has had an opportunity to observe a dramatic free agency period at his position since retiring from the Giants at the end of last season. Brady, the man he beat in two Super Bowls, opted to leave the Patriots after 20 years, nine AFC championships and six Vince Lombardi trophies.
