Coming off a knee surgery back in February, 42-year-old Tom Brady has apparently looked as sharp as ever during this year’s offseason workouts.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians joked about Brady’s elite health and fitness.
“I can hardly get out of bed myself. … I ain’t that much older,” Arians told reporters on Wednesday. “But yeah, he’s an amazing guy, the way he takes care of himself and trains and makes sure. He has so much fun out of there. You can trick your brain into feeling good.”
Brady doesn’t just look good from an outside perspective. Earlier this week, the 22-year NFL veteran said he felt “really good,” despite being just four months removed from what he called a “pretty serious” surgery.
Still performing at an elite level after decades of wear and tear in the NFL, Brady has become a beacon of health and longevity in the world of sports.
In his first season with Tampa Bay in 2020, the all-time great QB logged 4,633 yards, 40 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on the way to yet another Super Bowl victory. With 1,061 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions through the fifth-seeded Bucs’ postseason run, the defending Super Bowl MVP led the team to his seventh title win.
Primed for Year 22, Brady will look to repeat with a fully-loaded roster.
