NFL legend Tom Brady is set to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp after taking an eleven-day break for personal reasons.
The decorated quarterback retired briefly from the game but made an immediate return after a matter of weeks, much to the delight of fans of the Raymond James Stadium team.

His return is so vital to the fortunes of the Buccaneers that it has led to an upsurge in betting on Tampa, and anyone keen on backing their NFL bet would do well to take a list of these reliable NY sportsbooks, where most have Brady’s team down as second favorites behind the Buffalo Bills to win the Super Bowl. 

The stature of the man is perhaps the main reason why Tampa was happy to allow Brady such a long break during the pre-season training camp, and by all accounts, it was a break that has been factored in for some time. 


On what shape Brady was in following his break, Quarterback coach Clyde Christensen stated with a knowing grin when asked about how the seven-time Super Bowl winner looked:

“He looked good and fresh. It was good to have him out there. I’ll tell ya that.”

No one should be surprised that Brady is still in very good shape, the 45-year-old is known for his fitness regime, and last season he posted some of his best-ever numbers but was unable to steer Tampa Bay to back-to-back Super Bowl titles.

Many will wonder about the reasons for Brady’s original retirement and the factors that led to his return. Tampa Bay sacked head coach Bruce Arians, and some believe this played a part in his speedy comeback to the NFL.

Many have also speculated as to the reasons for Brady’s extended break during the off-season, with most feeling it related to the need to get a good work/life balance, which aligns with the reasons that the former New England Patriots star gave for his initial retirement.

He had bowed out of the game in order to spend more time with his family and no doubt had some provisos before coming back to Tampa for the upcoming season. 


Brady is expected to line up for Tampa Bay’s third and final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts, and his impending return doesn’t hold any fears for new coach Todd Bowles:

“He missed 11 days, but he wasn’t playing in the first two [games].”

“He’s fine with everything. We know his condition, and it’s fine. He’s getting back with the guys. He’s throwing the ball, and we’re good. I think it was built up before we left.”


In his two seasons at Tampa Bay, Brady has an impressive 29-10 season record, and last season he racked up an astonishing 5316 passing yards in regular season action alone; that’s more than 300 yards clear of the next quarterback on the standings, Justin Herbert, and you wouldn’t bet against the veteran bagging an eighth Super Bowl ring this time around.
