Tom Brady had his first press conference as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. He took questions from the press and spoke about many things connected to what happened between him and the New England Patriots.
This will be the first time ever that Brady will be a member of a team other than the New England Patriots. He addressed this and explained that he feels uncertain about this:
“I’m not going to make predictions about how the next few months are going to go and I don’t really know what’s going to happen and what’s predicted with our access to the team facilities and so forth. I’m going to do the best I can to be in conversation with guys and try to get together and find ways to meet up in different places and get to work in that sense. Technology is an amazing thing and we’re going to use the technology as best we can to try to get to know each other and for me, they’re ahead of me on what they need to know in terms of the offense. So I’ve really got to get up to speed with the things they already know and their terminology. It’s a lot of time and energy, but that’s what I love to do. The only way to start it is to start doing it, so that’s what I’ve got to do.”
When talking about the decision to move on from the Patriots, Brady said:
“It was really the night that I spoke with Mr. Kraft and asked if I could come over and see him. We spoke and had a great conversation and I just wanted to express what he’s meant to me in my life. We spoke with Coach Belichick at the same time – we were in different locations, so we talked to him and it was a great conversation. I got a chance to talk to Jonathan Kraft as well.
“All three of those guys have been involved with so many important decisions in my life – career-related, personal-related – and I leave there with great admiration for the people in that organization. It’s a world-class, first-class organization in every way and I wanted to leave it that way, too.”
