Buccaneers Cleared Of Any Wrongdoing By NFL
A report came out last week that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could’ve potentially been penalized for the actions of QB Tom Brady getting too close with Buccaneers staff during the shutdown of NFL facilities. This was investigated by the league and no wrongdoing was determined to have occurred. NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero reports that the visit that QB Tom Brady made to Offensive Coordinator Byron Leftwich’s house was a brief personal visit to pick up a playbook. This is good news as Tampa didn’t need to start the 2020 NFL season off on the wrong foot with their new starting QB and their other new additions including TE Rob Gronkowski.
The NFL made an inquiry into Tom Brady’s recent visit to #Bucs OC Byron Leftwich’s house and determined there was no violation of offseason work rules, per league spokesman @NFLprguy. “It was a brief personal visit and Tom picked up the playbook.”
