Tom Brady is as famous a celebrity as there is in the world of sports. His career accolades and accomplishments trump that of anyone in the NFL. As a result of Brady's legendary status as a player, it can feel strange to remember that he's human.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion has made an effort to make himself more relatable since joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. That effort continued Saturday when Brady posted a video to social media showing him going on a bicycle ride.
In the video, Brady gives a short glimpse into a day in his life. The Buccaneers quarterback plugged his clothing apparel before switching up his morning routine and taking a bike ride.
Many people questioned where Brady was patrolling, and an answer was provided quickly by Buccaneers' insider Greg Auman. Auman confirmed Brady was in the Manhatten area.
