In recent weeks, many of the teams have released statements through the NFL Players Association saying that players won’t be participating in person amid the coronavirus pandemic because the voluntary workouts were a success virtually.

Brady reportedly gave a passionate speech to fellow players telling them to stand united and have “very intense negotiations” with coaches on modifying offseason work rules as the union continues to push for a boycott.

Brady added that the NFL is the only professional sport with “overly competitive” drills during the offseason and the 2020 offseason proved that there is a better way.
