Tom Brady missed 11 days while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but finally returned last week.
Tom Brady speaks publicly for first time in nearly a month
Tom Brady finally spoke to the media on Wednesday, nearly a month after the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Brady was asked about his future with the team and whether he would be back next season. “I don’t know,” Brady said. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen.” Brady also said that he has not been in contact with Patriots owner Robert Kraft or head coach Bill Belichick since the end of the season.
Here is what he had to say on a variety of topics:
- Brady briefly explained his 11-day absence, during which he reportedly spent time in the Bahamas with his wife. Brady was asked about the time off and he gave a very interesting answer. “Everyone has different situations they”
- Brady responds to rumors that he wanted to play for another team. This is his first interview since the tampering investigation into the Dolphins was released. Brady also addressed rumors that he almost played for the Raiders.
- Brady stated that Tampa Bay was the right place for him, saying that all the conversations they had over time led him to that conclusion. He expressed pride in the effort that everyone has put in to make the relationship work, from the owner to the co-chairman.
- The Buccaneers’ offensive line is facing more injuries, which could be a problem for the team at the start of the season. Center Robert Hainsey has an ankle injury, while left guard Nick Leverett is injured.
The NFL’s annual top-100 list has been released, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has come in at number one. Brady finished ahead of Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp.
