Tom Brady admits surgery was ‘very serious’
Tampa Bay Buccaneers superstar Tom Brady continues to wallop Father Time’s rear year after year. Even with that being the case, the NFL icon apparently have pretty serious surgery this offseason.
How do I know this? Tickle me glad you asked, as the gunslinger literally said so.
“I had a pretty serious knee surgery this offseason, which is the first surgery I’ve had in about 12 years,” Buccaneers QB Tom Brady said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I was really interested to see how it was going to go, because last year it just took a lot. Every week I was kind of tending to my knee, and I thought I would love to see a season where I can focus on some other strength stuff that I want to do, some other technique stuff where I’m not just focused on protecting my knee all the time.”
The legend went on to elaborate just how bad it was by describing the process to help him return to form.
“So It’s been pretty intense this offseason from that standpoint, because it’s been six and a half weeks that I’ve been dealing with the rehab process,” Tom Brady said. “The season went pretty long, obviously into February. It’s just now that I’m starting to feel like the offseason is happening. And I’m going to blink my eyes and the offseason is going to be over.”
This injury being wildly underreported up until the time of this writing is insane. The Buccaneers star is known to keep things pretty private, but how this wasn’t a huge offseason storyline remains a mystery to me.
That being said, just like he does to Father Time, I fully expect Tom Brady to be just fine; perhaps even leading the Buccaneers back to the Super Bowl.
