So much for Tom Brady not attending offseason workouts. The latest photos from the third week of Bucs’ Phase Two offseason workouts show Brady on the field throwing passes to his teammates at the AdventHealth Training Facility.

The 23-year veteran quarterback wasn’t necessarily expected to be seen until the Bucs mandatory mini-camp.

During Tuesday’s media availability, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said he doesn’t need to see Brady.

“I don’t need to see him,” Leftwich said. “I really don’t – I don’t need to see him. He’s done enough OTAs really to be honest with you. And this is what we’ve done really since me and him got together. We’ve really had no summer when it pertains to me and him. But the conversations that we have, the understanding of each other, that we have. We’ll be fine if he participates or not.”

Leftwich’s remarks come on the heels of quarterback’s coach Clyde Christensen saying the Bucs plan to give second-year quarterback Kyle Trask significant snaps during OTAs. They begin next week. With that in mind, perhaps Brady is taking advantage of getting in extra reps with new wide receiver Russell Gage and make an appearance for new head coach Todd Bowles.

It’s also the first time the Brady has participated in a Phase Two workout since he signed with Tampa Bay. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the entire offseason practices. Brady was forced to organize workouts with teammates at Berkeley Prep in Tampa over that summer.

With the Bucs winning the Super Bowl in 202o, former head coach Bruce Arians told Brady and the veterans to stay away from the facility while the coaches worked with younger players. Brady organized some veteran workouts at the Yankees training facility next door without any coaches present.

I see no reason why Trask can’t come into 17 game season and not be active police receive a hike or two in each game? If he can’t even contribute in his second year and doing that then why did we draft him? He’s never going to learn to play in the NFL unless he gets to play in the NFL.

It’s not Rodgers/Favre it’s Gabbert/Trask. And Gabbert is winning. Let that sink in.

Gabbert isn’t winning anything. It’s not a contest or a zero sum game. Trask will be developed at the pace the coaches believe is best, knowing that TB-12 is going to retire soon, most likely after this season and post-season.

C’mon Horse, have you no faith at all in the judgment of our Super Bowl winning, NFC South Championship winning coaches and their ability to judge the progress of young Trask?

It amazes the hell outta me that so many commenters assume they know more about how to win games in the NFL than the game winning coaches we have know. Here’s a clue for y’all: you DON’T.

I understand that they want to take it slow with Trask but I don’t think it’s as necessarily as that previous article tried to make it sound. Yeah he didn’t snag the starting spot right away in High School or College but when they called his number at Florida he lit things up. He adjusted last year but this year they need to have him at least as Number 3 and dress out for every game and learn from Gabbert and Brady first hand. I understand them wanting Gabbert as Number 2 since he knows the Offense, but when Brady… Read more »

personally I’m glad to see Brady wanting to get work in. I’m telling you, he came back for his unfinished business for more than just another season. He came back to absolutely leave it all out on the field before he retires for good. This season is gonna be Epic.

By the way, is Jon still at PR? I heard something during the Draft coverage asking where he was going. Did he leave or is he still here?
