News emerged following Tom Brady‘s seventh Super Bowl victory that he would undergo offseason knee surgery.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reported Brady’s surgery is “more than just a little clean-up.” But head coach Bruce Arians indicated Wednesday that Brady should be alright well before the start of the regular season in September.

Arians told reporters that Brady should be ready to throw and participate in 7-on-7 drills around June. Via Greg Auman of TheAthletic.com, Arians also noted Brady doesn’t really need to throw and can simply “coach the s–t out of” his teammates during the offseason.

Brady will turn 44 on Aug. 3 and appears to be headed for a contract extension.

It’s still unclear what offseason programs will entail for teams in 2021 — if they exist at all. During his Super Bowl press conference a few weeks ago, commissioner Roger Goodell said “virtual is going to be a part of our lives” whether or not offseason programs are able to resemble what they were prior to 2020.

  1. Word is that Kraft is going to fire Belichick and hand the Team over to Brady with compensation for positions as QB, HC and GM.

  2. Tampa would be smart to just keep this guy until he decides he doesn’t have it anymore. He will know long before anyone on their coaching staff does.

  3. Tampa didn’t seem to skip a beat with Blaine Gabbert, I don’t see them going below 500 even if Brady has to miss time.

  4. Brady has greater value as leader than a QB at this point. That is not a knock at all because he showed he is still an elite QB in this league, but it becomes clearer with every passing day that “The Brady Way” is a thing.

  5. I was 9 years old when Brady was drafted. I went to high school, college, wife, couple of kids, a few jobs, and Brady is still there with little to no sign of the end being nigh.

  6. Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

    Brady has been able to take advantage of his opportunities because of his preparation.

  7. I can translate coach speak:

    There’s no way the league has any June activities so yeah sure, he’ll be ready by June.

  8. Who’s laughing at Brady copyrighting “Tompa Bay” now? That man just elevated the whole city.

    It’s been a really hard ride for you Jets’ Fan. But perhaps your Jets can convince Tampa Bay to trade Gabbert to your team
