Quarterback Tom Brady was not present for much of the New England Patriots’ voluntary offseason program last year, and it appears the six-time Super Bowl champion is planning to take the same approach in 2019.

ESPN’s Mike Reiss wrote over the weekend that the expectation is Brady will “follow a similar routine as last year” and opt to spend time with his family rather than participating in voluntary workouts, which begin for the Patriots on April 15.

With the Patriots having won yet another Super Bowl, the narrative surrounding Brady’s offseason plans will likely have a much different feel this year. Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski chose to stay away last offseason until their presence was mandatory, and there was talk they were butting heads with coach Bill Belichick over training and conditioning

Winning has a way of solving everything. Brady and Gronk choosing to work out on their own last April and May obviously did not cost New England anything in the long run.

We can expect Belichick to have the same reaction he had last year if Brady doesn’t show up to organized team activities, but perhaps reporters will have fewer questions about it this time around.
