Tom Brady working out with N’Keal Harry, Julian Edelman

Tom Brady is skipping the Patriots’ Organized Team Activities, but he’s still working out with teammates.

Brady posted on Instagram pictures of himself working out with Patriots wide receivers N'Keal Harry and Julian Edelman.

Although Brady often skips voluntary work, citing his preference to spend time with family and to work with his personal trainer Alex Guerrero, there’s never any doubt that he’ll show up ready to go when the time comes. Edelman will be the Patriots’ No. 1 wide receiver this year, and Harry is the first-round draft pick, and so Brady is getting work in with them even if he’s not at the facility.

Brady, who will be 42 in August, has already done more after age 40 than any other quarterback in NFL history. He attributes that success in old age to the work he does off the field.

  1. OTAs are time, rep and pads limited. By Brady taking his #1 (Edelman) and his #1 pick (Harry) aside for some singular time, he’s getting far more practice in with them….and it’s totally legal for QBs to do this, without coaches.

    More guys really should follow TB and do the same.

  2. This is why the “Greatest” are just that! Tom Brady, Larry Bird, Magic, Doctor J, Kareem, Pistol Pete M, Wilt Chamberlain ….They Strive not to be better, but to beat you to death in everything they do. The Great don’t sit on their arses collecting a check….Finally, Brady has a chance to go out (in all honesty-staying healthy) with 2 more rings, the team this year has a chance to be Amazing! So instead of hating, lets just enjoy what we will never see again! Enjoy your weekend….

  3. Wow Brady finally lowered the drawbridge for someone other than Edelman and Amendola.

    How about Inman, Dorsett, Morris and Berrios?!

    Come on Tommy! Drain the moat or lower that drawbridge..

    lol

    I wonder who bought his hideous
    mansion in LA that he was building?

  4. The photos should cheer salty haters up a little – though he still looks 35 in one he looks 37.

  5. Working out with = hangin with some buddies at his palace in the Yellowstone club, and occasionally throwing a ball around. I guess you earn that when you have all those rings.

  6. “Although Brady often skips voluntary work”

    Often? Last off season and this one are the only times I can ever remember him skipping OTAs. Before that he was 100% attendance.

    And realistically this seems like a compromise with Giselle so he can keep playing and she stops crying publicly for him to retire.

    It is excellent he’s got Harry out there working with him and Jules. It did seem last year that the price of skipping OTAs was he wasn’t as sharp to open the season as he usually is. As long as he’s working privately with receivers that makes up a lot of the lost ground.

  7. “Imagine how Harry must have felt when he got that invitation?”

    As it should be. For the first time Bill spent his #1 pick on a shiny new toy for Brady, damn well better help him break in and learn the system.

    If Gordon gets reinstated having those 3 guys all on the same page with Brady will be brutal for opposing defenses.

  8. with all the new guys …. they should get together and acquire a little more getting familiar time …. after all with no more gronk its gonna be a tad more difficult when five guys gang up on the little guy who could ….. leaving one of the newbies open for a good gain … is that not the idea of taking advantage with the offensive game ???

  9. At any moment, this old man will hit the wall. Pats fans are just running around with blindfolds on celebrating the teams crazy success like it will go on forever.

    Only in Max Kellerman’s world do people suddenly “hit a wall” as they get older. Reasonable people would expect a slight decline in athletic performance annually.

  11. With Gordon, Harry, and Jules………teams will have to pick their poison. PATRIOT NATION can’t wait for the G.O.A.T.
    To embark on his STAIRWAY TO SEVEN!!
    🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆

  12. Anyone still hating on this guy should just stop watching football. Appreciate greatness

  13. I have to laugh at loud at the haters who keep predicting “the old man will hit wall”. Pats fans have been hearing about the imminent demise of their football team for close to a DECADE now.

    And yes we know that time is undefeated and Brady’s skill will diminish over time. But I’m afraid it’s not a wall that will be hit, but rather a slow erosion of his skills. Pats fans know that even 85% of Tom Brady’s best will be good enough to legitimately compete for Championships, and that’s all we as fans can hope for. Playing meaningful football in January and having a shot at playing in February.

    We’ve been able to have this experience for 17 of the last 19 years, and have no reason to believe it will end this year either. Sorry but I suspect the Brady era to last at least 2 more years. Deal with it until then.

  14. Brady doesn’t often skip voluntary work. Last year was the first time, no? And that was his compromise to spend more time with his family in the off season so he could continue playing.

  15. Brady’s success into his 40s should be all every player on the Pats needs to go train with Alex Guerrero. If that’s “snake oil,” let me know where I can get a bottle or twenty.

  16. What people fail to realise; is that Brady is stronger and healthier than he was at 31. His diet and exercise regimen are tailored for longevity.

    People also love to compare him to Manning – Manning had a debilitating shoulder injury that eventually killed his career – Brady has no such impediment.

    If the fire still burns, he can play for another 3 years at a top level.

  17. N’Keal- you need to learn to take the air out of the balls. Julian- you need to work on not getting caught with PEDS. I will master how my cap number stays low while my owner funnels millions into my corporation.

    Actually they have coaches there (privately hired, not team) to work on everyones technique and mechanics.

  19. I’m on board with those that thought he wasn’t sharp to start the year last season. Hopefully he is taking steps to avoid a repeat of that. Otherwise it’s an acceptable compromise in order to see The Great One continue slinging the rock for Pat’s Nation.

    When we’re talking about salty tears being absolutely delicious year, after year, after year, it is YOU we are talking about. Keep it up. It sustains us. LOL.

    Its a shame how permanently gullible some people are. So many people were duped into believing that deflated football advantage myth.

    The Patriots destroyed the Colts in the 2nd half of the “deflategate” game after the league added air to the footballs of both teams. But that didn’t stop some those on the left side of the bell curve from being duped by when the NFL made sure nonsense was repeated by countless media outlets.

    The NFL is still hiding the PSI information from the 2015 NFL season because science exposed the fraud. The NFL didn’t want to have to give the stolen draft picks back to the Patriots. Not when the Patriots were running up the scores on the darlings of the league.

    Everyone remembers how the Patriots smoked the Colts in the 2nd half of that game after the league added air to the footballs of both teams. The Patriots scored 28 points while shutting out the Colts in the 2nd half. The final score was 45 to 7. Plus all the superbowl appearances and wins after that game, while the NFL was closely monitoring the Patriots footballs. So much for that “advantage” myth.

  22. @patsfan4lifesbchamps – what you have to realize is every time you disparage the Pats, or think you are being “clever” by damning Brady with faint praise etc, all using your fake-fan handle, you just reinforce the notion that Pats are buried very deep in your very salty head. I trust you enjoyed the Super Bowl?

  23. Nothing more enjoyable as a Pats fan than seeing the haters heads explode as they look for more and more obscure reasons to try to diminish NE’s accomplishments:

    “The passes they throw are too short!”

    Can you imagine a lamer criticism?

  24. At any moment, this old man will hit the wall. Pats fans are just running around with blindfolds on celebrating the teams crazy success like it will go on forever.

    Nah. we’re just enjoying the hell out of it while it lasts. eventually we’re all dead bub, so do yourself a favor and lighten up.

  25. 20 years is “forever” for a 20 year old. So when your team happens to win a big game you don’t celebrate because it won’t last forever. Get a proof reader. You haters say alot of meaningless stuff but it’s your hour of internet time, do with it what you will.

    Deflategate Revenge was the best superbowl win ever. Roger committed a fraud, and in the end had to hand Kraft the Lombardi trophy, and the Superbowl MVP trophy to the guy he committed the fraud against.

    It just does not get any sweeter than that. If you can come up with a sweeter hypothetical than that REALITY, I’d love to hear it.

    It’s time to come out of the boonies, dude. There isn’t a single Pats fan in the Nation that thinks that this goes on forever. We’re grateful to have been alive to witness it, period.
