Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-year head coach Todd Bowles expressed zero worries when responding to the 11-day absence of quarterback Tom Brady.
However, with the Buccaneers’ season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys just days away, Bowles expressed his confidence and faith in the seven-time Super Bowl winner, who is embarking on his 23rd NFL season.
“He’s been all-in since we got him,” Bowles said, as reported by Calvin Watkins of The Dallas News. “He’s all-in now. I don’t follow the off-the-field stuff. I listen to XM The Groove and Soul Town. My off-the-field activities are honestly not even football-related.”
Brady made his long-awaited return, following a period of news-generating headlines surrounding the future Hall of Famer, against the Indianapolis Colts on Aug. 27 in the Buccaneers’ final preseason game — addressed the absence himself.
