Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is seemingly heading in the right direction on his recovery from knee surgery. While attending an event held by the Bruce Arians Family Foundation, he positively spoke on his current condition and bared that he will be ready to go when the 2021 season starts in September, per Rick Stroud.

Brady had already been planning to have his surgery once the 2020 NFL season was over in order to ease some discomfort in his left knee. He was also seen wearing a knee brace during their Super Bowl LV tilt against the Kansas City Chiefs and in their championship parade afterward.
After a stellar debut campaign in Tampa Bay, Brady and the rest of the Buccaneers are expected to have another run at the title in the upcoming season. The veteran gunslinger will be steering the ship once again as he recently signed a two-year extension back in mid-March that will reportedly keep him with the team through the 2022 season.
Brady’s new deal was also part of the Buccaneers’ bid to retain all 22 starters of their championship squad from a year ago including tight end Rob Gronkowski, linebacker Shaq Barrett, and defensive end Ndamukong Suh, among others.
Certainly enough, the reigning champions will be leaning heavily on their veteran playmaker as they aim to emerge as a strong contender for the championship once again. After taking some time off to recover from his knee surgery, Buccaneers fans can expect Tom Brady to be at full strength when the team begins its title defense in the 2021 NFL season.
