TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tom Brady continues to add to his legacy with jaw-dropping story after jaw-dropping story.
According to a report in the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback carried his team to a Super Bowl win this year with a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He allegedly suffered the injury in his final season with the New England Patriots.
Brady had surgery to repair it in February and, on Tuesday, posted a video to Twitter of him throwing the football without the traditional knee brace.
If he could pass for 4,633 yards, the fifth most passing yards in his 21 year career, and 40 touchdowns, the second most scores in his career, in the regular season with a torn MCL, what will he do when he is healthy?
If he could surpass 1,000 passing yards in the postseason for the third time in his career as well as record double digit touchdowns in the postseason for the second time in his career with that injury, what will he do when he is healthy?
If Brady could present the Vince Lombardi Trophy to a crowd of cheering Buccaneers fans inside Raymond James Stadium while having to handle that situation for the entire season, I wonder what he will be able to do when he is fully healthy.
