Tom Brady Returns To NFL Training Camp After Leaving For 11 Days

Weeks before the start of the official NFL season, Tom Brady finally made an appearance at training camp following an absence of 11 days. His fellow Tampa Bay Buccaneer teammates have expressed their gratitude to have him back at practice, with linebacker LaVonte David saying, “It’s always nice to have Tom [Brady] back. His presence is different [because of] the type of leader that he is, the type of guy that he is.” However, his mysterious disappearance from training for over a week had fans speculating where Brady was.

The football GOAT, who has won 7 Super Bowl Championships since the start of his career in 2000, left some worried that he was nursing an injury and taking time off to heal and recover. On the other side of the spectrum, Twitter went crazy over rumors that Brady was actually the newest contestant on the popular TV series, ‘The Masked Singer,’ which required him to take time off for filming. However, Brady quickly shut down this gossip, tweeting, “Wasn’t on the masked singer last week,” sharing that he instead took time off for “personal reasons” that was later revealed to be a vacation with his children and wife, Gisele Bündchen. 

While the Brady family was gone for 11 days in the Bahamas, Tom’s return to training yesterday proved that his commitment to family time does not mean that he doesn’t also have an intense commitment to football and the Buccaneers. Even on vacation, Brady was obviously working out regularly so that he was able to seamlessly come back to practice in perfect shape, with tight end Cameron Brate saying, “Wherever Tom was, he was working out still and getting good reps in. Yeah, if anyone can get away with the 11-day break during training camp, it’s Tom. He came back kind of firing on all cylinders.”

I must admit when I initially heard that Brady took this much time off right before the beginning of the season— as the rest of the team worked tirelessly at practice— the special treatment that he was given felt a bit unfair to the other players. However, based on testimonies from coaches and sports news outlets, this period off was already in motion a while ago when Brady was contemplating retirement. Considering that Tom Brady jumped back into the swing of things like he was never gone in the first place, all with the constant support of his teammates and coaches continues to prove the point that he truly is one of the greatest of all time.

Any youth devoted to their sport will eagerly tell you their ambitions of playing in the big leagues, mimicking the roar of the crowds as they score that buzzer-beating shot. But in the face of reality, we intuitively know that those childhood dreams rarely come true, and the data backs that up: according to the NCAA, there are 10 million high school athletes in the US compared to just over 400,000 college athletes across all sports. At the professional level, that number is drastically smaller.
