Watch: Tom Brady Delivers Important Message Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
March 26, 2020
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady delivered a message for his fans and Instagram followers. The former Patriots quarterback took to his Instagram account to share a video of him giving out some words of support. Brady knows that people are panicking over the coronavirus outbreak. That’s why he decided to give people some sort of support and encouragement to stay strong and healthy.
In his message, Brady reminded everyone that we have just one body. We need to do our best to protect it. The quarterback also encouraged fans to check out some of the tips TB12 suggests. He knows pretty much everything about the human body. It’s his temple. Thanks to this, he is able to play his best football at 42. Let’s not forget that Brady will turn 43 in August. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed him at that age. They are hoping to see him play the same football he played in New England.
The NFL is serious about the coronavirus outbreak
When it comes to the coronavirus outbreak, the NFL decided to shut down the physicals for free agents and prospective draft picks. They will wait for the coronavirus pandemic to pass. The information was confirmed by the president of the NFL Physicians Society in a letter for the league and the NFLPA.
“At the time of the
most serious pandemic in our lifetime, we believe medical resources should
focus on those who are ill or in need of care,” Dr. Anthony Casolaro,
Washington’s team doctor, said in the letter. “We look forward to examining
players when it is appropriate to do so.”
The NFL sent a memo to every team last week barring players and free agents from entering team facilities through March 31. Teams were informed they could contact local physicians to do their physicals in the meantime. The NFL also paused the offseason programs and banned medical and team personnel from traveling to meet players last week.
The NBA did the same. Officials suspended the regular season until further notice. The 30-day suspension may be the only solution they have at the moment. They may need to delay the next few games until this summer.
