This Instagram video of Tom Brady downhill skiing might make Patriots fans nervous

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is enjoying himself, and rightly so, during his time away from football after winning Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams last month.

Brady's current adventure is in the snowy mountains of Montana, where he posted a video to his Instagram page Thursday morning of him downhill skiing. 

Brady looks like he's got the hang of it, but probably that isn't going to make many Patriots fans worry any less about their 41-year-old quarterback potentially suffering an injury that would impact him next season.

In fairness to the veteran QB, he did watch plenty of film of his previous skiing endeavors to help improve his abilities this time around. Who knows, perhaps skiing will be Brady's next sports passion when his football career is over.

Prototypical Patriots: Athletes available if Belichick is looking for tackles

Two of the Patriots' last seven first-round draft picks have been offensive tackles: Isaiah Wynn and Nate Solder.

And though tackle doesn't seem to be a pressing first-round need this year, there's no doubt that New England could look to beef up that position by going back to the well at some point in this year's draft.

The Patriots don't have an obvious candidate for their swing tackle spot at the moment. Plus, there could be shakeup coming up front in 2020. Joe Thuney will be a free agent, and if the Patriots want the flexibility to move Wynn to guard, then a tackle from this year's draft class would make sense. 

Based on past picks in the Belichick era, Phil Perry takes a look at some tackles who fit the Patriots' mold and could work in Foxboro this fall.
