ESPN Boston reports that Pats QB Tom Brady will be leading some player only workouts starting today, following the lead of a number of QB’s around the league, including Tim Tebow, Josh Freeman and rival Mark Sanchez.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is back in town, and he’ll be leading players-only workouts starting Wednesday, according to sources familiar with his plans. Brady’s return to New England is in conjunction with his charity work for Best Buddies International, as he is hosting a football game at Harvard on Friday night, before riding in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge on Saturday. Brady has spent the majority of the offseason training in California as he works his way back from January foot surgery, knowing he’d be in the region this week, he attempted to gather as many teammates as possible to join him, particularly pass-catchers. While the value of player-led workouts during the lockout is debatable, many believe chemistry between a quarterback and receiver can grow during the offseason, one could point to Brady’s past work with Deion Branch and Wes Welker as evidence of that. Not surprisingly, teammates have responded, according to sources, breaking from their personal workout regimens to join Brady, who spearheaded the arrangements.
