According to a report from Joey Knight and Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, newly-signed Buccaneer Tom Brady, Ryan Jensen and several of Tampa Bay’s offensive skill players participated in a workout at Tampa’s Berkeley Prepatory School on Tuesday morning.
Per the report, wide receivers Mike Evans and Scotty Miller, tight ends O.J. Howard and Cam Brate, quarterbacks Ryan Griffin and Blaine Gabbert and running back Dare Ogunbowale were also in attendance. The workout lasted around two hours.
Given the nature of 2020’s offseason, it poses unique challenges as NFL teams look to prepare for their upcoming season, and those challenges may be twofold for Tampa Bay as the team moves forward with a new quarterback at the helm who still needs to gain familiarity with a new offense and a new group of teammates.
While many states and municipalities are still enforcing a number of social distancing guidelines amid the ongoing pandemic, the NFL has released a statement that Brady’s workout was permitted per league rules.
The NFL says Tom Brady's workouts with his new #Bucs teammates at a local high school are permitted: "Everyone associated with the NFL should follow the recommendations and guidelines of state and local authorities and medical experts, including the NFLPA."
