Tom Brady celebrated his 44th birthday on Tuesday as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers held a padded practice in their indoor facility. How did the team mark the occasion?
Head coach Bruce Arians told reporters Tuesday the team didn’t do anything out of the ordinary:
“No, just a couple guys said, ‘Happy Birthday.’ We couldn’t get anyone in the building to surprise him coming out of a cake, so COVID screwed that one up. Other than that, it was just a normal day.”
It’s not quite the treatment he’s had on birthdays past. To mark his 41st birthday back in 2018, the Patriots went all out, with a giant birthday cake and balloons popping up at training camp.
And while Arians didn’t bring it up in his press conference, he did give Brady a gift — the quarterback got the day off.
