Coming off the second Super Bowl Championship in franchise history, there's a sense of confidence and laid back nature for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at team OTAs. It's understandable as this team returned virtually every key starter and is poised to potentially repeat in 2021.

One area to keep an eye on, however, is the health of quarterback Tom Brady. Brady underwent a minor procedure on his knee back in February. There haven't been any reports of him missing time, but at 43-years-old any injury procedure offers a tiny bit of concern.

For head coach Bruce Arians, there doesn't seem to be much concern at all. He recently offered a candid, and perhaps humorous, update on Brady's injury recovery.

Arians went on to explain what limitations Brady may experience heading into minicamp. He seems to be taking a cautious approach. "I don't know how much I'll let him do ... We'll see. We'll see what the doctors say. He may be doing a lot of coaching."

Hinting that Brady may be doing a lot of coaching is just fun and games. First off, it's probably impossible to keep the uber-competitive Brady from taking a serious hands-off approach. Furthermore, who wouldn't want the 7-time Super Bowl Champion coaching up his team early in the summer?

Brady and the Buccaneers will likely be just fine for Week 1 of the 2021 NFL Season. If anything, this summer is all about staying healthy and mentally preparing for a possible Super Bowl repeat run next season.
