Report: NFL teams want ‘stern discipline’ over Tom Brady visiting Byron Leftwich

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have been outed for committing a violation of NFL rules when an entertaining story surfaced this week about Brady accidentally trespassing, and teams around the league reportedly want that to be taken seriously.

A man who lives next door to Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich revealed this week that Brady confidently strolled into his house on April 7 thinking it was Leftwich’s house. Brady quickly realized he had entered the wrong residence, apologized repeatedly, and walked out.

The situation may sound like a scene straight out of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but some executives around the NFL are not laughing. League rules prohibit players from visiting with coaches prior to the start of the offseason program, and Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that teams around the NFL want the Bucs to face “stern discipline.”

Had Brady not walked into the wrong house, no one would have ever known he visited with Leftwich. You could argue that players meeting with coaches before it is technically legal is almost certainly common practice, but there is a lot of bitterness toward Brady around the NFL stemming from Deflategate and other suspicious antics that went on when he was with the New England Patriots.

Brady doesn’t seem concerned about the potential rules violation, as evidenced by the joke he tweeted when the incident went viral.
