Bruce Arians: Tom Brady may be doing “a lot of coaching” at mandatory minicamp

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has been doing some work with his teammates in recent weeks, despite undergoing a fairly significant knee surgery earlier this offseason.

But when it comes to his team’s mandatory minicamp next week, Brady may not be performing much of his usual on-field function.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians said he wants to make sure Brady’s knee is safe and that he’s not getting chased around on the field. So Arians isn’t sure how many reps Brady will get.

“He may be doing a lot of coaching,” Arians said, via Jenna Laine of ESPN.

At 43 years old and with two decades of experience, Brady doesn’t need to do that much in minicamp to prepare for the season. Those reps going to a younger player like rookie Kyle Trask or backups Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin could set up Tampa Bay better for the future β€” or in the event Brady has to miss significant time in 2021.

  1. Tampa Bay Tommy wants none of the Patriots in week 4. He knows what’s going to happen to him. Better bow out gracefully and skip a week or two it’s for the best. πŸ™‚

  2. Old QB with a bum knee plus 17 games this season. I don’t get all the talk of Tampa going undefeated.

    Weird way to put it but I do see the Pats winning this game. Belichick will put a lot into this game, for the sake of his legacy. Plus BB knows every Tom Brady weakness and will exploit it.

  4. GoodellMustGo,

    Thanks for the game you played with me, it proved that you have conceded. πŸ™‚

    Every team knows, every coach knows. But if Brady can get rid of balls within 2.5 seconds, there is nothing other teams can do.

    In the postseason, nearly 70 percent of his pass attempts came in less than 2.5 seconds and his average time to throw was a blistering 2.2 seconds because of how quickly Brady diagnoses defenses.
