Rules have been made to be broken, right?
Well, no, but when it comes to start quarterback Tom Brady it seems like it. The new Tampa Bay Buccaneers star player and several of his teammates continued their group workouts Tuesday despite recommendations from the NFL Players Association to cease such sessions.
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times has reported that Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Ryan Jensen, Jamel Dean, and Blaine Gabbert were among at least a dozen players present for the unofficial practice at Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa.
Due to the recent rise of coronavirus cases nationwide, the NFLPA had asked players to stop working out together until training camp. The virus has been on the rise in Florida. Last week, two players and one coach from the Buccaneers tested positive for COVID-19.
But Brady don’t care. The Buccaneers worked out for approximately two hours Tuesday, beginning at 7 a.m. Brady has organized a number of group sessions as he looks to build chemistry on and off the field with his new squad.
As you know, Brady, who signed a two-year, $50-million contract with the Buccaneers in free agency after a decorated 20-year run with the New England Patriots, is new to the team and wants to make sure they all work out great together for the season.
