Tom Brady came into the offseason after adding a 7th Super Bowl ring to his trophy cabinet. And after getting a reported minor knee surgery in the offseason, the Buccaneers quarterback says things are on the up and up.
Brady had already been open about the prospect of getting knee surgery on his left knee to release some discomfort. He was also seen wearing a brace during Super Bowl LV, in which he dethroned the Kansas City Chiefs as he won his 7th championship. Tom could also be seen wearing the brace at the Buccaneers Super Bowl boat parade.

Tom Brady spoke positively on his ongoing rehab
43-year-old Brady provided an update on his surgery while attending Bucs HC Bruce Arians’ Family Foundation Gala. And to all Bucs fan’s happiness, revealed that he will be rearing to go before the season.
“It’s kind of the only thing that slows me down in life,” Brady said Sunday night of the left-knee surgery he had less than two months ago. “It’s something like that. I’m cool with it. It’s just part of what you deal with. Things come up and you deal with them the best way you can.
The best opportunity to get better and improve and I’m definitely feeling a lot better than I did six or seven weeks ago. “You know, it’s rehab. None of that is fun, but I’m looking forward to getting back to real training and stuff, which is hopefully here pretty soon.”

Brady spoke about the upcoming season. “We’ll just take it and see how we go, and see how things play out over the course of the offseason,” he said. “A lot of things come up and change over the course of the offseason, and we have a lot of hard-working guys. Guys will be anxious to get together and get to work.

Tom Brady had a stellar 2020 season. In only his first season, he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their first Super Bowl since 2002, on his way to win his 5th Super Bowl MVP. Brady also signed a new 2-year extension this past offseason, which helped the Bucs retain all 22 starters of the 2020 season.
2021 looks to be another season where Brady and the Bucs could be favorites to come out of the NFC. With all 22 starters returning to a proven system for another year, it will be very interesting to see if the Bucs could go back-to-back in 2021.
