When he ended his retirement after 40 days, it coincided with the resignation of Bruce Arians as head coach and transfer into a front office role.
Therefore, rumors spread that Brady had a hand in Arians’ ouster which he vehemently denied.
Now, Brady has been out of touch with the squad for a huge part of training camp and preseason.
Again, there have been several speculations about his absence even if head coach Todd Bowles already said that Brady will be back after their preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.
Indeed, Brady has returned to the Buccaneers in time for their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.
Likewise, NFL insider Dov Kleiman shared the reason for his quick sabbatical.
Sources reveal that Tom Brady's absence from the #Bucs came due to family commitments.
His time away included a trip to the Bahamas at an exclusive resort and primarily for family time with his wife, Gisele Bündchen, per PFN. pic.twitter.com/l6kCVyBYGy

Kleiman tweeted, “Sources reveal that Tom Brady’s absence from the #Bucs came due to family commitments. His time away included a trip to the Bahamas at an exclusive resort and primarily for family time with his wife, Gisele Bündchen, per PFN.”
He is just keeping his promise when he retired of spending more time with his family.
But with the impending need to return to the office, Brady has ended his vacation.
Brady Doesn’t Need Much For Motivation
At 45 years old, Brady doesn’t have to go through an entire preseason to be ready.
Instead, one sequence in their final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts would be enough to get him back to the groove.
Besides, no one has taken care of his body more than him.
That said, he is ready for the grind and is motivated to bring another Super Bowl title to Tampa Bay.
No wonder he deserves as much time off as he wants before he springs back into action.
