In recent years, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been spending less offseason time in New England, and more in Los Angeles. This week, he’s back in the Boston area, and he reportedly will be gathering some teammates for lockout workouts, starting today.
Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com reports that, with Brady in town for events related to his Best Buddies International charity (he’s hosting a football game at Harvard on Friday night and riding in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge on Saturday), he will gather as many teammates as possible to work out with him, specifically the various shapes and sizes of pass-catchers.
Though Brady has assumed a fairly low profile during the lockout (except when making an appearance for one of his sponsors, like UnderArmour), his name has been mentioned many times, given that his name is the first name that has been applied to the antitrust lawsuit that was filed by 10 players on March 11.
The value of these lockout workouts remains unknown. Some teams have engaged in organized sessions with a significant turnout of players. Others haven’t done much. If there’s a season, it’ll make for an interesting comparison.
