Tom Brady ignores the NFLPA recommendation that NFL players stop training together to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In fact, the Buccaneers quarterback scoffed at the suggestion with an Instagram post.
Brady, however, is not alone among the NFL quarterbacks in open defiance of the recommendation.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is the last, and the team even posts videos from their official Twitter account.
Stafford’s wife Kelly posted photos to her Instagram account on Thursday.
The other players in training included Jamal Agnew, Jesse James and Nick Bawden.
It is not the first time that Stafford has worked with teammates.
But the players are clearly not heeding the advice of NFLPA medical director Dr. Thom Mayer.
“Please note that it is our agreed medical opinion that in light of the increase in COVID-19 cases in certain states that no player should participate in the practice of private practice,” Mayer wrote. “Our goal is for all players and their families to be as healthy as possible in the coming months.
“We are working on the best mitigation procedures at the team facility for both the training grounds and next season, and we believe it is in the best interest of all players to advise against any voluntary joint practice before the training camp. “
