Tom Brady’s agent is defending his clients for participating in workouts with teammates despite the advisement from the NFL Players Association.

On June 20, the NFLPA’s medical doctor advised against players working out together due to concerns over COVID-19 cases. Brady seemed to respond via Instagram, quoting President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

In comments to Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel, Don Yee, who is the agent for players like Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo and Julian Edelman, defended the players for doing what is necessary to stay sharp as players.

“The players — who have to perform in front of millions — have to get ready somehow, especially since the game itself is fast, dangerous and violent,” Yee said. “If they hibernated 100 percent, they’ll be less safe.”

Yee believes that the players will be held by critics to their usual standards for their on-field performance, which puts the players in a place where they feel they need to workout and prepare.

“Any rusty performance will be criticized,” Yee said. “[Yet] if they try to prepare even a little, they’re criticized.”

Brady has been working out with some of his new Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates at a high school in Tampa. Garoppolo has been practicing with some of his San Francisco 49ers teammates in the Bay Area, which even resulted in an injury to a player.
