In the wake of an informal workout organized by Tom Brady earlier this week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen opened up about what he learned.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, Jensen was particularly impressed with Brady's attention to detail when he asked if he wears a glove:

"I'm like, 'Uh, yeah.' And he's like, 'OK, we gotta talk about that.' These minute details so far that I've seen him be concerned with, from something as small as that to cutting on the fourth step, not the fifth step, on a route, it's stuff like that where I'm sure he carries himself through his life like that. You can tell he's very detail-oriented that way."

One moment during the workout that was captured on social media was a picture of Brady appearing to show Jensen how to fold his towel. 

"I thought it was funny that happened to be one of the pictures that got taken," Jensen said.

Rick Stroud and Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reported on Tuesday that Brady and several members of the Buccaneers took part in an informal workout at Berkeley Preparatory School.

Per ESPN's Jenna Laine, an NFL spokesman confirmed the players weren't in violation of league rules "as long as they are following the recommendations and guidelines of state and local authorities and medical experts, along with NFLPA guidelines."

Florida governor Ron DeSantis is still recommending citizens observe social distancing guidelines and avoid gatherings of 10 or more people amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Tuesday's workout marked the first time Brady has been able to get in work with his new teammates. Stroud and Knight noted Brady began organizing workouts when he asked for phone numbers to Bucs players "shortly after agreeing to a deal" with the team in March.
