It appears that Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates are willing to risk it with COVID-19.
As reported by Rick Stroud in the Tampa Bay Times, Brady and several Bucs teammates worked out at Tampa’s Berkeley Prep around 7 a.m. on Tuesday. Photos at the Times reveal Brady along with fellow ex-Patriot Rob Gronkowski, wide receiver Chris Godwin, and center Ryan Jensen, among others. According to Stroud, at least a dozen players were present.
Brady and the Bucs’ private workout comes after a Bucs assistant tested positive for COVID-19, while two others have been quarantined. It also comes as other NFL teams have outbreaks of their own and NFLPA doctor Thom Mayer strongly advised players to stop working out together until the virus is under better control.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, at least 10 NFL teams have had at least one employee test positive for the novel coronavirus. Florida has been particularly hard-hit in recent weeks after becoming one of the first states to reopen from the COVID-19 shutdown. New cases in the state have ballooned from 667 on June 1 to 2,926 on June 22.
