More Details About Tom Brady's 10-Day Absence Reportedly Emerge

Tom Brady is currently away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last week, Todd Bowles announced Brady will miss 10 days of practice. However, he never revealed a reason why. That's led to widespread speculation about Brady's personal life. 

However, this wasn't a last-minute decision by Brady. According to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, Brady's 10-day excused absence was pre-planned. He reportedly spoke with Bowles about it before training camp began. 

"Much has been made of Tom Brady’s absence from training camp but according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, all is well for the star quarterback and his family. Breer confirmed that Brady’s 10-day absence from camp was preplanned, cleared, and his family is fine, despite speculation," said Joseph Salvador of

Who knows? Perhaps Tom Brady planned some big family vacation this week when he was retired. Then he un-retired but didn't want to disappoint his family and call the vacation off. 

Whatever the reason may be, it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about Brady's 10-day absence. His family is reportedly fine and there's no reason to believe he's considering re-retiring. 

Brady is expected to return to Tampa Bay sometime next week.
