Tom Brady is stepping away from the NFL temporarily due to personal reasons. Brady missed the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s team practice on Aug 11th, and head coach Todd Bowles had this to say about Brady’s training camp absence.
“Tom has been excused today. He’ll be taking… He’ll be back somewhere around after Tennessee. He’s going to deal with some personal things.”
“This is something we talked about before training camp started. We allotted this time because he wanted to get in and get chemistry with the guys and go through two weeks of training camp, knowing he wasn’t going to play the first two games. He didn’t want to take away reps from Blaine [Gabbert] and Kyle [Trask] as well as ‘Griff’ [Ryan Griffin] as far as going into these next two games. And it’s something he needs to handle.
“We trust him. We talked about it. It was scheduled way before training camp, and he will not be here until after Tennessee.”
Brady hasn’t come public with exactly why he’s temporary absence from his NFL team, but hopefully, we’ll find out more soon.
Stay tuned for more details…
