Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Expected Back Early This Week

 Tom Brady has been away from Buccaneers camp for 'personal reasons', but as Tampa Bay look to get back to the Super Bowl to win Brady his 8th ring, he's going to be returning to camp 'early this week', according to Head Coach Todd Bowles. A lot has been made of the absence, with plenty of theories and criticisms online coming the Bucs way, but with more than two weeks before Week 1 of the regular season against the Dallas Cowboys, Brady will be back to help get this team prepared.


The Buccaneers stayed fairly well put this off-season, but added a few new weapons, so getting Brady back before the teams final pre-season game will definitely help the new faces get accustomed to the legendary Quarterback. This was the original timeline given by Bowles, but on Sunday during his media session, he confirmed the news, and while it's not clear that TB12 will play in the final pre-season game or not, it's good news for Bucs fans, as the GOAT will be locked in and ready to go.

The Buccaneers are just as loaded as ever, and if Brady can somehow be at his best at the age of 45, there's no reason why this team can't make it back to the Super Bowl, and that will very much be the expectation for new Head Coach Todd Bowles and the entire franchise. Either way, Brady will be back this week, and the team can now truly get started as they strive to continue the great run they've been on over the past few seasons.
