After the announcement that Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel tested positive for COVID-19, some have grown concerned about Tampa Bay QB Tom Brady, who was in ‘close contact’ with Vrabel over the weekend.

Vrabel tested positive for COVID on Sunday. Brady and the Bucs played the Titans on Saturday in a 34-3 preseason loss, meaning Brady spent time with Vrabel not even knowing he was positive for COVID.

The Titans head coach Vrabel is currently following quarantine protocols and will be re-tested today.

ESPN’s Jenna Laine stated that Brady and Vrabel spent quite a bit of time chatting prior to Saturday’s preseason game.

Mike Vrabel spent quite a bit of time chatting with Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and his son Jack during joint practices (last) week. This is from @GeorgeWalkerIV of @Tennessean. Vrabel just announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and will be quarantining.

Vrabel won three Super Bowls playing with Brady during his career as a linebacker in the NFL. He also played with the Steelers and Chiefs.

With the COVID-19 announcement, Brady will surely be tested by the Bucs just to make sure he did not contract the disease.
