While we were informed earlier this week that Tom Brady is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the quarterback has reportedly revealed that he tested positive for the virus in February.
Brady told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times that he tested positive for the virus shortly after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl LV victory boat parade.
When Stroud asked Brady if he had previously contracted the virus, Brady reportedly told him an affirmative “Yeah.” The quarterback then went on to explain how he thinks COVID-19 will affect the upcoming NFL season.
“I think it’s [COVID-19] going to be challenging this year,” he told the Tampa Bay Times. “I actually think it’s going to play more of a factor this year than last year, just because of the way what we’re doing now and what the stadium is going to look like and what the travel is going to look like and the people in the building and the fans.”
“It’s not like last year, although we’re getting tested like last year,” Brady went on to say. “It’s going to be, I definitely think guys are going to be out at different points and we’ve just got to deal with it.”
