Tom Brady had an excellent season last year as he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Promised Land in only his first season. But even the season ended on a high, his offseason hasn’t been hunky-dory. Tom Brady spoke about his very serious knee surgery.
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 about his first surgery in 12 years
Brady described the procedure as “pretty serious knee surgery” in his recent appearance on Hoodinkie radio.
“I had a pretty serious knee surgery this offseason, which is the first surgery I’ve had in about 12 years,” Brady said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I was really interested to see how it was going to go, because last year it just took a lot. Every week I was kind of tending to my knee, and I thought I would love to see a season where I can focus on some other strength stuff that I want to do, some other technique stuff where I’m not just focused on protecting my knee all the time.”
“So It’s been pretty intense this offseason from that standpoint because it’s been six and a half weeks that I’ve been dealing with the rehab process. The season went pretty long, obviously into February. It’s just now that I’m starting to feel like the offseason is happening. And I’m going to blink my eyes and the offseason is going to be over.”
Which is why Brady has been doing a lot of intense training in the offseason ahead of the 2021 season. The rehabilitation has been going on for 6 weeks. And it’s yet another testament to how incredibly tough Tom Brady is, that he was able to play a full 16-game season battling a knee injury.
