When you’re the GOAT of the NFL, you get to do what you want. This also involves attending the offseason workouts with the team. Even Todd Bowles wasn’t really expecting Tom Brady to attend any practice sessions. However, it doesn’t surprise him with Brady showing up in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ phase 2 offseason program.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers is now elevated with a new line of mentorship. Tom Brady heading back to the Bay after announcing his initial retirement announcement. Many expect this to be his one last dance in the NFL. Now that veteran coach Bruce Arians steps away from the role, the Buccaneers now have a new mentor, Todd Bowles, to steer in the pirate sailboat of the franchise.
Todd Bowles spoke with Rick Stroud. He talks about how the NFL GOAT made regular appearances during this week’s off-season workouts. Stroud says it did not amaze him that Tom Brady showed up at the drills; something he doesn’t need to do.
He mentions via the Tampa Bay Times, “Tom’s a worker. Tom comes in on his own. He doesn’t need to be here, but you don’t play that long without having inner drive. We have great communication, and we have a great relationship. He comes in on his own and works. He doesn’t need the work everyone else needs, but the camaraderie, when he comes in here, is very good.”

Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was outspoken in his opposition to offseason workouts. Brady has also been renowned for foregoing the volunteer program during his career. He showed up in phase 2 of the program this week, most likely due to his inner willingness to make the Lombardi run.
Will Tom Brady be the offensive in charge?
Todd Bowles appears to be sticking with calling defensive plays this season, but while he would have some insights under certain offensive consultations, he does not intend to make any modifications to it. During his presence on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, the new Buccaneers head coach uncovers the deal.
He reveals that Byron Leftwich, the offensive coordinator, will stay in control of his component, with Tom Brady having some implications. Bowles describes it as a team effort, and he will be in charge of the defensive line. They have respect and understanding and will continue to make progress together to figure out what works effectively for the offense.
