Tom Brady has funny tweet about Patriots’ bizarre rookie hazing
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was up to no good during training camp practice at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday. The team ran a fumble drill with loose footballs. Rookies were forced to recover the ball. But it wasn’t under normal circumstances.
Not only had a grounds crewman been watering a patch of the field for roughly an hour, but Brady was waiting with a hose to spray the rookies as they slid for the ball. The rookies were basically trying to recover the football on a slip and slide.
“Tom [Brady] was just having too good of a time,” defensive end Michael Bennett said after Tuesday’s practice.
A Patriots beat reporter tweeted about the drill, a harmless form of hazing that one of the rookie coaches, Jerod Mayo, partook in. Brady felt like he had some explaining to do.
