Every NFL fan has come to understand that Tom Brady is the ultimate competitor at some point during his 2 decades in the league. Unsurprisingly, he practices with the same spirit at training camp, too.
Ahead of their September 9th season opener against the Cowboys, the Bucs are already a week into their 2021 training camp. Head coach Bruce Arians and co. will definitely have high expectations for the upcoming season, considering that they returned all 22 starters from their Super Bowl LV win in February.

Another member of the team with high expectations is QB Tom Brady. Fresh off his NFL record 7th Super Bowl win, the 43 year old is hungry for his next ring, demanding the highest effort levels from his teammates. No surprise there.
Rick Stroud, a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times who covers the Buccaneers, was at training camp today and tweeted about an interesting, yet characteristically “Tom Brady” incident.
Apparently, a 2 minute drive ended after a sack and 2 incompletions. Visibly frustrated about this, Brady slammed his helmet and yelled, “Gotta make a f**king play when you’re tired fellas.”
After completions to Miller, Evans and Bernard, 2 min drive stops with a sack and a couple incompletions. Tom Brady slams his helmet. “Gotta make a (bleeping) play when you’re tired fellas.”

Bruce Arians Says Buccaneers Will Be 92% Vaccinated by August 13th
While Brady might have had some frustrating incidents at practice, some great news did come out of Tampa today. Bruce Arians, the self-proclaimed “vaccine specialist” claimed that the Bucs should be almost 92% vaccinated by August 13th.
Additionally, he predicted they should be close to 100% by the start of the season.
