One storyline that Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans have had their eyes on throughout the offseason is the injury health of future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. Brady underwent a surgical procedure on his knee to correct a nagging injury.

The surgery was exactly 15 weeks ago today and NFL insider James Palmer recently offered up a fantastic update on Brady's rehab.

The report indicated that Brady appears close to 100 percent. The seven-time Super Bowl Champion went on to explain that he'll "be able to do some different things this year," that he wasn't able to accomplish while playing injured. It has been previously reported that Brady's injury has been nagging him throughout the entire 2020 NFL season, his first in Tampa Bay.

Well, that's got to put a scare throughout the rest of the NFL. Considering Brady was playing injured throughout the 2020 campaign is unreal. Keep in mind, not only did Brady lead the Buccaneers to their first Super Bowl title in since 2003, but this team featured one of the best passing attacks in the league.

Brady finished the season with 4,633 total yards, the third-most amongst NFL quarterbacks. He also tossed 40 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions while the Buccaneers averaged 289.1 yards per game through the air (2nd in NFL).

It's pretty outstanding to think that Brady pulled off such a remarkable season while playing injured and 42-43 years old. Right now, the Buccaneers own the second-best odds (+650) to win the Super Bowl next season, according to the latest NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
