Tom Brady workout doesn’t appear to violate any rules, NFL says

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the state was open to professional sports teams last week.

TAMPA ― Tom Brady’s passing camp with Bucs teammates Tuesday at Berkeley Prep will not draw any sort of penalty flag from the NFL.

The league has said Brady and his teammates are permitted to practice outside the team facility so long as they follow the recommendations of state and local authorities and those guidelines agreed to by the players association.

The Bucs and other team facilities are closed to players and coaches, although Tuesday was the first day essential personnel and players receiving treatment for injuries could return.

Last Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that Florida was open to professional sports teams during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brady and approximately 9-10 teammates participated in a passing workout for about two hours Tuesday beginning shortly after 7 a.m.

The list of players participating included Brady, quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin, receivers Mike Evans and Scotty Miller, tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, running back Dare Ogunbowale and center Ryan Jensen.

It’s unknown, however, whether this was the first organized workout between Brady and his teammates since signing a two-year, $50 million contract with the Bucs in March.

While Berkeley Prep is currently closed to students and teachers, headmaster Joseph Seivold attended portions of the Bucs workout.
