Brady: Knee feels fine

TAMPA, Fla. — A “long, arduous offseason” behind him, Tom Brady says his surgically repaired knee feels good and he’s happy to be back to work with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion revealed recently that he played all of last season with a torn medial collateral ligament that required surgery shortly after the Super Bowl.

The soon-to-be 44-year-old quarterback’s recovery has progressed well enough that Brady has shed the black sleeve he has worn since 2008 and is practicing without it.

“It feels good now. I mean, it was not my favorite offseason of all-time,” Brady said Friday.
