Bucs Bowles Says Tom Brady Leaving Until Sometime After Aug. 20 For Personal Reasons

Bucs Tom Brady has left the team temporarily and won't be coming back for at least 10 days. That according to Bucs head coach Todd Bowles.

TAMPA, Fla. – Bucs Tom Brady has left the team temporarily and won’t be coming back for at least 10 days. That according to Bucs head coach Todd Bowles.

“Tom has been excused today,” Bowles said after Wednesday’s joint practice with the Miami Dolphins. “He’ll be back sometime after Tennessee.”

The Bucs weren’t going to play Tom Brady anyway Saturday night in the preseason home opener against the Dolphins, but this means Brady will not participate in joint practices with the Titans next week or play in their 2nd preseason game on August 20. 

“This is something we talked about before training camp started. We alloted this time because we wanted to get in and get chemistry with the guys and go through two weeks of training camp.

Brady just turned 45 years old and was already given off two days of practice this training camp.

So it’ll be Blaine Gabbert, Kyle Trask, and Ryan Griffin who will take snaps under center for the Bucs until Brady gets back.

Ironically, it was the Miami Dolphins who were stripped of their 2023 first-round draft pick, their 2024 3rd-round pick, and owner Stephen Ross fined $1.5 million for violating league policies, which included talking to Brady while he was still a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady was not punished. 

Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniels was asked about the Dolphins flirting with Brady during practice in Tampa on Wednesday.

“For me, nothing happened,” McDaniels said. “Everyone else is the one making it awkward. It doesn’t occupy a single lot of space with anybody. it’s hard enough to be good in this league.”
