After spending the last few weeks resting after undergoing surgery on his left knee, Tom Brady is ready to train for the 2021 season.
Brady had to undergo surgery after the Super Bowl LV win over the Chiefs, but the 3-time MVP is expected to begin throwing with his receiving corps and the team's backup QBs next week at the AdventHealth Training facility or Berkeley Prep.
HC Bruce Arians, advised him to take it slow due to the quarterback's age and the severity of knee surgery, but knows Brady is eager to begin strengthening his arm. Arians also confirmed Brady's problems learning the team's playbook, but once he began to feel more comfortable, the Bucs adopted a very offensive philosophy to take advantage of the team's arsenal.
Brady said the knee injury prevented him from developing other areas of his game in 2020.
Ja'Wuan James considering suing Broncos
Former Denver Broncos offensive lineman Ja'Wuan James is considering filing a complaint through the NFLPA to recover the $10 million his former team refused to pay after he was injured in a gym that is not part of the team's facilities.
The injury represented a turning point between the league and the NFLPA over "non-football injury" designations that represent a lack of obligation by teams to pay the salary of a player who is injured outside of a team's facilities.
The NFL issued a statement that read; "Teams should encourage players to remind them of the importance of injury protection and the risks they take when choosing to train on their own.
The NFLPA called it a "cowardly tactic" for the league to use an injury as serious as James' to make players attend optional training camps for fear of losing pay.
David Culley has nothing to say about Deshaun Watson
In the first press conference since the 23 demands on Texans QB Deshaun Watson were made public, HC David Culley refused to omit any opinion on the Clemson graduate's presence at the voluntary camps beginning May 24 or the mandatory June 15 camps.
"We have nothing to say about that situation at this time. The team owners already talked a few weeks ago about the sentiment of the team in general. The GM (Nick Caserio) also talked about the legal process, which is in effect right now and that we're going to be respectful of it and go from that point forward" David Culley at press conference this morning.
At Culley's last press conference, the coach said on March 11 that the team was "very committed to Deshaun" as its starting Quarterback of the future.
Since the last press conference, prior to this morning's press conference, the Texans signed Tyrod Taylor, traded up to get Ryan Finley and selected Davis Mills in the third round of the draft.
