Six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, who joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month, will reportedly be moving into a huge waterfront mansion owned by retired baseball star Derek Jeter.
The Tampa Bay Times reported Thursday that Brady, the 42-year-old NFL icon who departed the New England Patriots last month for the Florida squad, will rent a 30,000-square foot (9,144m) home on Davis Islands, about six miles from the Buccaneers’ training facility and seven miles from their home stadium.
Brady, who said Thursday he’s donating 10 million meals to Feeding America’s coronavirus relief efforts, will move his family into a home built by former New York Yankees shortstop Jeter, chief executive of Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins.
It features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, an entertainment room, a billiards room and two boat lifts providing crafts access to Tampa Bay.
Brady signed a two-year deal with the Bucs worth $50 million on March 20.
Jeter, 45, won five World Series titles with the Yankees. He lived in the mansion during the off-season while playing, completing construction in 2011.
Jeter retired in 2014 after playing his full 20-year MLB career with the Yankees and since 2017 has been a part-owner of the Marlins.
