Buccaneers QB Tom Brady on Talent of Bucs Skill Players
New Buccaneers QB Tom Brady had his first media availability during training camp yesterday. Brady spoke about a variety of things including COVID-19, General Manager Jason Licht, Tampa feeling like home, and the talent of skill players on the team. Below is what Brady had to say about the talent of the skill players on the roster:
“We’ve had different times to workout together. It’s been good being here in the building and actually being directed by the coaches – ‘This is what we’re going to work on and these are the plays that we’re installing’, so you have a better idea of how things are going to come together on the offense. The guys worked really hard and it’s been fun getting to know the receiver position. Obviously, none of the guys I’ve played with – Gronk’s the only guy I’ve played with, so I know what he can do. It’s really up to everybody to go out there and earn their role. I’ve always believed that you get out of it what you put into it. A lot of guys are working really hard and have been working hard because this is their career and they want to do a great job. Regardless of who the quarterback was it’s important for all of these guys. Football matters to Mike [Evans] and to Chris [Godwin]. I’ve loved being around those two guys who are not only great players, but great leaders. Cam [Brate] and O.J. [Howard] who have been here have been really great along with the other tight ends in the group. Dare [Ogunbowale], RoJo (Ronald Jones II), I met ‘Shady’ (LeSean McCoy) the other day on the practice field – it’s a good, hard-working group. Really smart player, and again, it’s going to be up to all of us to come together and to see how we can make it work.”
Tom Brady seems to love the group of skill players that Tampa has on the roster. He never had a group like this in New England. The best players that he played with in New England consisted of Gronk, Randy Moss, Julian Edelman, and Danny Amendola. It seems like Brady is satisfied with who he will be throwing to this season and it is now up to them to get the chemistry together and have a great year on the field.
