Patriots fans have been lighting up talk radio shows about Tom Brady‘s decision not to attend the team’s voluntary offseason program, but reports about the QB’s offseason plans have started to emerge. Brady, who’s in Los Angeles, has been busy working out — as much as having a child and recovering from multiple injuries will allow, of course.
On Saturday, pictures emerged of Brady training at a Beverly Hills boxing gym, the Boston Globe reports, via the blog Faded Youth. No, Brady isn’t training to take on Manny Pacquiao. He’s adopting the Chad Ochocinco program for offseason conditioning, working on his footwork and hand-eye coordination in the boxing ring.
In case that wasn’t enough to calm down people in New England, pictures also revealed that Brady celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by working out at UCLA’s practice field. We also learned, via the Globe, that Brady will travel to Brazil, presumably to show off his new kid to wife Gisele Bundchen‘s family.
Now that Brady’s every move has been covered, here’s what else is around the Web on Saturday:
- Cardinals GM Rod Graves said the team has yet to discuss a new deal with DT Darnell Dockett.
- New Jaguars DE Aaron Kampman took out a full-page ad in the back of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel sports section, thanking Packers fans for their support during his eight-year stay in Green Bay.
- RB Willie Parker, CB Kevin Dockery , FB Jason McKie and DE Reggie Hayward are some of the free-agents the Rams have had in for visits. Another, former Mr. Irrelevent David Vobora, reportedly has signed his one-year tender offer to remain with the team.
- Broncos LB D.J. Williams is foregoing a $100,000 workout bonus to stay home and get into shape in Miami.
