Tom Brady will do reflecting in the future because right now, he is focused on the upcoming NFL season which will be his first-ever with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and at the same time his first-ever outside of New England.
During his introductory press conference with the Bucs yesterday, he spoke about what’s to come and explained:
“I don’t want to talk about the past because that’s not relevant to what’s important in my future and what’s going on this offseason for me. I think for all of us, things in life can change and you’ve got to be able to adapt and evolve.”
He also spoke about the transition and explained:
“The transition, I’d say, is very emotional … Relationships are what matter most to me. I’m going to be friends with my teammates, my former teammates, and coaches, for the rest of my life. That’s not going to leave just because I’m wearing a different jersey. But at the same time, for me the next jersey I’m wearing, I’m prepared to give them every bit of commitment that I’ve had my entire career to be the best I can be to help this team be the best it can be.”
He went on to say:
“Everyone has somewhat different styles and philosophies. Football to me is about throwing the ball to the guy that’s open. And if he’s open deep, that’s where you throw. And if he’s open short, you throw it there. If he’s open outside, you throw it there. If he’s open inside, that’s where you throw. You get the ball to the guys who can do something with it. … There’s a lot of ground to make up because I haven’t worked with these players, I’m going to have to learn what they do, their body language, how they like things. That’s part of the challenge.”
We can’t wait to see what the next season brings for Brady!
