All quiet on the Tom Brady entrance.

Gray pleaded that it was the query that everybody wished to listen to. Brady was undeterred.
“You’re scratching. I appreciate your asking. Thank you,” he stated.
The Buccaneers completed 8-9, however received the NFC South for the second consecutive yr and earned their third straight playoff berth. Brady struggled within the workforce’s first-round playoff loss to the Cowboys final Monday evening, throwing for simply 5.3 yards per try and throwing a tough red-zone interception within the first half.
