Almost everyone around the NFL knew Tom Brady was due to undergo offseason knee surgery, but no one really knew when. Well, according to Brady, he’s already had it.
“I actually had knee surgery, so I’m kind of rehabbing now, which is giving me something to do, although I’d much rather be kind of staying active like I normally do,” Brady told James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
A lot of buzz has surrounded the knee surgery, mostly because the knee belongs to Brady. Most have reported the surgery as being “minor.” The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin wrote that it was actually a little more invasive than that.
Either way, according to Brady, it’s over now. And according to Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians, Brady should be ready to take the field for minicamp in June.
Brady, 43, has a year left on his contract after leading Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win in his first season with the franchise. Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht recently said “it’s a possibility” that Brady will receive an extension.
