“That is really tough” – Tom Brady Talks About His Hurdles After Arriving in Tampa Bay

Published 08/09/2020, 7:04 PM EDT


Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled off a major coup by bringing in veteran NFL quarterback Tom Brady. The six-time Lombardi Trophy winner ended his long-standing association with the New England Patriots in search of a new adventure. His search came to an end with Bruce Arians’ young and determined Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady signed a two-year contract worth north of $50 million before moving to Florida. His penchant for being the best is second to none. That’s exactly the same passion that TB12 will bring to the Bucs’ dressing room ahead of a rather peculiar 2020 NFL season. Here’s what Tom Brady had to say about the hurdles he had to cross over the course of his first few weeks at Tampa Bay.

Tom Brady addresses the challenges he’s facing at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

“It’s been different having the opportunity with this time to move and for example study my playbook. I mean, I really haven’t had to do that in 19 years. You forget, ‘Man, that is really tough.’ Like all the different terminologies and you’re going back a very long time in my career to really put the mental energy in like I did,” Brady told reporters on a Zoom call via New York Post.

Brady spent almost 20 years playing with New England Patriots. Head coach Bill Belichick is known for his ruthless ‘win at all costs’ attitude. After a quick transition to Florida earlier this year, Brady will take some time to ‘unlearn’ the Belichick way of doing things. Brady will be pleased to spend some time alongside formidable teammates in the form of  Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and OJ Howard.

Brady further spoke about the work done by his teammates over one of the most ‘absurd’ offseasons in NFL history.

“I am glad we’re not playing a game this Sunday. I am glad that we have time to prepare. It’s been a good week or so being in here and I think every day I am trying to take advantage of the opportunity to improve myself so that I can be the best quarterback for this team that this team really deserves. These guys are working really hard and I want to come in here and do a great job for them,” Brady further added.
