Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had been reportedly planning offseason knee surgery for months leading up to the end of the 2020 campaign. Now that it’s out of the way, he provided an update on his rehab.
Speaking to reporters Sunday during Bruce Arians’ Family Foundation charity event, the veteran quarterback said that he’s feeling good and is looking to be ready by minicamp.
“Yeah, I hope so. I hope so. I feel pretty good, and I push myself pretty hard,” Brady said via ESPN. “I feel pretty good. I don’t know if I could go this week, but we’ll see how things play out. It’s a long time between now and the beginning of the season, and just be smart about all these different things that we have to do and fulfill; but we all take a lot of pride in being ready to go, and I’m sure we will be.”
Brady was asked if he would hold workouts like he did last offseason considering the Bucs are one of several teams opting out of OTAs this offseason due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Brady said he would, adding that the important thing is being ready to throw the football.
It sounds like he’s close if he isn’t already there.
