"For a guy like Tom Brady, you've got to be scratching your head," Favre said, per Scott Gleeson of USA Today. "Of all the times to change teams, he's gotta be saying, 'How am I going to get the chemistry I'm wanting to have with the guys, with my new [teammates]?' with everything that's limiting getting ready for a season."
Brady spent the first 20 years of his NFL career with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, and he now won't get a regular offseason at 43 years old with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With no preseason games, the first time he will line up in a competitive environment will be Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. Still, Brady has been able to work out with teammates despite COVID-19 restrictions.
Favre, of course, knows what it takes to make this type of switch after moving to the New York Jets and then the Minnesota Vikings following 16 years with the Green Bay Packers.
