The last thing the Browns need right now is a ticked-off superstar quarterback making his NFL return.
Cleveland, say hello to Tom Brady .
While the "Deflategate" saga might never be forgotten, it's behind the New England Patriots and their four-time Super Bowl champion QB. And, for sure, Brady won't have forgotten the four-game punishment from Commissioner Roger Goodell that he fought to overturn and eventually had to serve.
"It was great to be back in the building," Brady said on Westwood One Radio this week. "Certainly great to be back to work. It's been a long four weeks for me, but I'm excited to get started on my preparation for Cleveland. I'm anxious for the week ahead. I want to get back out on the practice field. This is what I love to do and now I have an opportunity to do it."
What might he do to the Browns (0-4), the NFL's only winless team and ravaged by injuries? What Brady usually does, which most often is a good thing for New England (3-1).
"His demeanor is always focused. He's always ready to play and always ready to roll," says 2015 All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski, who barely has rolled this season because of a hamstring problem. "So as an offense as a whole we just have to go out there, stick together, practice together, get ready for a tough Browns team, a defense that is always working hard and nonstop and always playing to the whistle."
If not playing particularly well.
