Tom Brady skipping OTAs is noteworthy but not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things

The best quarterback in football remains absent from voluntary workouts. Yesterday, organized team activities opened across the NFL and some notable players were nowhere to be found. Among the group of absentees were the New England Patriots' two biggest stars in quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski. Both are expected back on the field once the mandatory portion of offseason workouts begin in early June but for now they have decided to sit out voluntary workouts. Brady's absence in particular – he is the only starting quarterback to skip OTAs – made the media rounds...

The tight end could return to the field once its done. The New England Patriots kicked off their organized team activities yesterday. And while by participation again appeared to be solid considering that the workouts are voluntary, the two biggest stars on the roster were again not present: Quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski continue skipping the voluntary portions of offseason workouts. Both are expected back when mandatory minicamp starts on June 5, but the question is whether or not the duo will return any sooner. There are no indications in Brady's case just yet, but...

Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski skip OTA

Tom Brady is continuing his absence from the voluntary workouts, and so is Rob Gronkowski. Phase Three began yesterday. It’s the first OTA session, which is essentially passing camp.In the case of the quarterback, he’s been operating under a different offseason plan, spending more time with his family. There could be other factors playing a role, be it his contract or the banishment of his body coach Alex Guerrero. Whatever the motivation, Brady won’t be on the field.As for Gronk, his situation appears to be tied to his contract. He might not make an appearance until that’s settled,...
