Bruce Arians says Tom Brady is ‘way ahead of the curve’ for 2020
Look out, NFL, because it sounds like Tom Brady is adapting nicely to his new surroundings and system.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians raved about Brady’s level of preparation on Tuesday, saying the quarterback is “way ahead of the curve” in preparing for the 2020 season.
“He’s way ahead of the curve,” Arians said, in a Zoom meeting. “He’s a very bright guy — the terminology was the big thing. As we now get together starting tomorrow, we’ll start to collaborate a little bit more. So yeah, I think he’s in a great spot right now as far as that goes.”
Arians admitted that Brady still has work to do, partially due to the lack of live reps he’s had with his teammates. That said, Brady has been taking steps to try to mitigate that issue as well. Given Brady’s reputation for preparation, you would expect him to know his playbook and personnel very well by the time the regular season gets underway.
Brady is entering his first season with the Buccaneers after signing with them in March. The 42-year-old previously spent his entire 20-year career with the New England Patriots, winning six Super Bowls in the process.
