The biggest complaint when news broke that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was skipping OTAs was that he isn't getting the chance to mesh with an offense that is set to experience plenty of roster turnover heading into the 2019-20 season.
Well, apparently that won't be a problem:
Tom Brady isn't at OTAs but is working out with N'Keal Harry and Julian Edelman https://t.co/npekzf7c91— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 25, 2019
The quarterback, who has been documenting some of his offseason workouts on social media, again took to the internet on Saturday when he posted a sequence of pictures, one including top receiver Julian Edelman and one including first-round draft pick N'Keal Harry.
His Instagram post is captioned, 'It's a family affair' -- a bit of a play on words for Brady, who has skipped Patriots OTAs in each of the past two season with his reasoning being to spend more quality time with those closest to him -- his wife and kids.
Still playing at a high level at age 42, it's hard to criticize Brady for any of his offseason workout decisions. Besides, as a six-time Super Bowl champion and one of the greatest quarterbacks football has ever seen, he's probably earned the right to skip voluntary practices without backlash anyway.
So, to everyone ripping into Brady for choosing not to be with his team in a time of roster turnover, time to stop. Touchdown Tommy's got you beat again.
