Tom Brady ended his prolonged absence from Patriots activities this week, but hasn’t revealed anything further about why he was missing.
Brady was back in Foxboro for Patriots minicamp and spoke with reporters Thursday, answering a variety of questions with a handful of non-answers. The man who has touted the importance of organized team activities in the past reinforced that idea, even if he wasn’te exactly practicing what he’s preached.

The NFL has chosen to listen only to those fans who believe protesting during the national anthem isn’t patriotic. Plenty of fans, inexplicably ignored by the NFL, disagree. According to a new Quinnipiac poll, 58 percent of American voters believe NFL players who protest during the anthem are not unpatriotic.
Another 35 percent of American voters believe that they are. On a separate question, American voters also believe by a 53-43 margin that professional athletes have to right to protest while at work. That said, deep divisions exist based on party and racial lines. For example, Democrats support the right to protest via an 82-16 margin. Republicans say there is no right to protest, by a nearly identical split of 81-16. African-American voters support the right to protest, 85-11. Hispanic voters agree, with a 67-28 margin.
Ward being out there is because he’s earning it, Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. He’s working at it. He plays a position that we’ve been needing a guy to step up. We see him improving each and every day and doing the things that we’re asking. He needs to continue to do that to continue to be out there but we know he’s very talented. That’s why we drafted him. He’s displayed that since he’s been here.
Training camp and the preseason will provide opportunities for Ward to solidify the starting job and establish himself as part of the foundation of what the Browns hope will be a much more successful team in the years to come.
