It didn’t take long for former Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard to land in great surroundings on a contender.
What helped Bernard make his decision? According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Tom Brady himself played a role in recruitment: “Tom Brady and Bruce Arians both personally recruited Bernard, one of the NFL’s best receiving backs, after his release from Cincinnati. Another weapon for Brady and the Super Bowl champs.”
It’s a huge win for Bernard, who fits perfectly there in the Tampa Bay offense and could play a big role in the team contending for a Lombardi Trophy.
Like other former Bengals going elsewhere, it’s nice to see Bernard get a chance at a ring, especially after that heartfelt letter he just wrote to Bengals fans.
