With the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking to defend their Super Bowl championship this upcoming season, head coach Bruce Arians knows that keeping star quarterback Tom Brady healthy will be critical in their efforts to repeat as champions next season.
That is why it is unclear just how much work the veteran Brady will do in minicamp this offseason. Brady has been throwing in private workouts with teammates instead of OTAs.
“I don’t know how much I’ll let him do … with guys chasing him around,” Arians said, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine. “We’ll see. We’ll see what the doctors say. He may be doing a lot of coaching.”
Arians discusses Brady working with teammates at the facility outside of OTAs last Friday, but no coaches were present. Brady also practices last Monday at the Tampa facility of the New York Yankees.
“Evidently it was a real good workout,” Arians said. “I wasn’t here but from everything I heard, it was a real good workout. He’s not in town right now, but I would hope some of those guys that have been with him would come in here tomorrow. We’ll see.”
