A Rhode Island Bishop apparently doesn't think Tom Brady has much of a chance to get a seventh Super Bowl ring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bishop Thomas Tobin joked on Twitter that Brady bid on a Super Bowl LI ring that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft auctioned off for charity:

Bob Kraft is auctioning a Super Bowl ring for charity. Very admirable indeed. But is it true that Tom Brady bid on it because he knows it's the only way he'll get another ring?

Kraft's ring from New England's 34-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons brought in $1.025 million for the All-In Challenge, with proceeds going to several food banks. 

Brady ended his 20-year tenure with the Patriots in March. He signed a two-year deal with the Bucs, who haven't won a postseason game since Super Bowl XXXVII in January 2003. 

According to Tobin, optimism around Tampa Bay is unfounded because Brady won't have any success in his new home.
