Tom Brady takes a vacation from the Pirates to “sort out some personal stuff” that he “needs to deal with”

Everything Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen said about the Quarterback’s departure

“Tom was released today. He will take… He’ll be back sometime after Tennessee,” Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said during a press conference Thursday, August 11, according to NBC Sports. — He’s going to do some personal stuff.

Bowles, 48, explained that the 45-year-old quarterback had discussed his temporary departure with the team in advance before the start of training camp in July.

“We allocated this time because he wanted to get into the game, establish chemistry with the guys and go through a two—week training camp, knowing that he would not play the first two games,” the coach said. He added that the reason Brady took a breather was “something he needs to deal with.”

The former New England Patriot announced his retirement in February, but retracted his decision just over a month later.

“Over the past two months, I’ve realized that my place is still on the field, not in the stands,” the seven-time Super Bowl winner wrote in March. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’ll be back for my 23rd season in Tampa.”

Timeline of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s relationship

During the June roundtable, which was broadcast on TNT, Brady said he was only “partially” ready to resign when he made the February announcement.

“I think if you’re the age of them [defenders Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen], if you ask me: “Are you going to play football next year?”, I would answer: “There’s a 100 percent chance that I am.” I’m playing,” he explained to ESPN. “And I think as I got older, that changed because I have other responsibilities.”

The California native has two children — Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9 — with his wife Gisele Bundchen. He also has a 14-year-old son John with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.

In June, a graduate of the University of Michigan exclusively told Us Weekly how he combines family life with his career.

“I think for me it’s just a matter of confidence in the off-season, I try to cover a lot of things and make sure a lot of things are taken care of. And then when the football season comes, I can really focus on football,” he said. “[During] the off—season, my family has a lot of time. I liked it. I can still do it better. It’s just a constant striving to be a little bit better every day.”
