Tom Brady won’t win the 2021 MVP award, but he has definitely been the best player this season. There are a few players worthy of MVP consideration. Cooper Kupp is coming off the greatest year ever for a wide receiver. Johnathan Taylor led the NFL in rushing yards and touchdowns. While those players had great seasons, neither of the two are as valuable as a top quarterback. So that means the MVP will come down to Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers will be named MVP most likely. While, he did have an amazing season, being super efficient, and carrying the Packers to the #1 seed. Tom Brady has been just slightly more valuable.

Value to The Buccaneers
MVP is for the most valuable player, no one has been more important to their team than Tom Brady. When the Buccaneers lost Chris Godwin, Leonard Fournette, and 3 defensive starters to injury. Brady led the Buccaneers to 3 straight wins to finish out the regular season at 13-4. Even after the Antonio Brown situation, where Brown quit on the team against the Jets while trailing two touchdowns. Brady still came away with a late comeback win.
