The coronavirus pandemic has impacted both Tom Brady the football player and Tom Brady the businessman.

Brady the football player left the New England Patriots this offseason to sign with Tampa Bay, where he's skirting some rules to get up to speed with his Buccaneers teammates.

Brady the businessman, meanwhile, is collecting handouts from the federal government. 

TB12 Inc. received between $350,000 and $1 million from the Paycheck Protection Program, the Boston Business Journal reported, citing federal data published Monday.

The government's PPP has provided financial relief to small businesses impacted by the global spread of COVID-19 since March. Companies seeking a PPP loan must apply through the Small Business Administration.

It's unclear how much COVID-19 has affected TB12, but Brady's lifestyle brand has expanded to include TB12 Performance & Recovery Centers that were temporarily shut down during the pandemic.

Brady's company also had plans to bring TB12 to new markets across the country -- including a store in Tampa Bay -- but at the moment is just in Boston and Foxboro.

The Bucs just gave Brady a two-year contract worth $50 million, so something tells us the 42-year QB will land on his feet.
