Brady's appearance indicates he tested negative for COVID-19 last Thursday and Saturday and is ready to get to work, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

The Bucs also shared photos of Brady and Rob Gronkowski's new lockers over the weekend, just to rub more salt in the wound for Patriots fans.

As Tampa Bay continues to express its excitement about the Brady and Gronk era, fans in New England have reason to look forward to the 2020 campaign has well. The Patriots signed former NFL MVP quarterback Cam Newton in June, and the ex-Carolina Panthers QB looks more motivated than ever.

Now, we'll just have to wait patiently until the start of the NFL season on Sept. 10.
