Later this week, the New England Patriots will return to the practice fields for their second week of organized team activity workouts. One player who is not expected to be available is Tom Brady: The reigning league MVP and greatest quarterback to ever play the game is skipping voluntary workouts this offseason to spend more time with his family – and also showcase his talents away from the gridiron.
Yesterday, the five-time Super Bowl champion was in Monaco to watch the famed Formula One Grand Prix and also take part in promotional events. One of which included throwing a football across the city state's harbor:
The stunt was part of a promotional event by Swiss manufacturer of luxury watches TAG Heuer, for which New England's quarterback serves as a brand ambassador, and Red Bull Racing. The recipient of Brady's pass, therefore, was Red Bull Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo, who would go on to win the Grand Prix.
Brady will be back to throwing to his regular receives once the Patriots open their mandatory minicamp on June 5.
