TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Brady isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic — or NFL rules against players working out at team facilities — keep him from preparing for a new season with his new Tampa Bay team.     

Brady gathered some of his new Buccaneers teammates on a high school field for a throwing session early Tuesday. Brady wore a Buccaneers helmet and an orange jersey over his shoulder pads.     

The informal, players-only workout lasted two hours, according to The Tampa Bay Times.     

Because of the pandemic, any gathering of players is notable — especially one involving Brady. The six-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots signed a two-year, $50 million contract with the Bucs in March.
