For the third straight day, and the second straight practice, there was no sign of Tom Brady at Buccaneers training camp Friday. The star quarterback had a scheduled rest day on Wednesday, along with other veterans, and Tampa Bay did not hold practice Thursday. A day later, and Brady was still a no-show on the field, with the Bucs later announcing an excused absence due to a personal matter.

The exact reason for Brady's day off is unclear. His Friday absence comes two days after his 45th birthday and three days after the NFL disciplined the Dolphins, who were found to have "impermissibly" recruited Brady while the QB played for both the Patriots and Buccaneers from 2019-2021. 

Brady, who did not dispute reports of a Miami connection earlier this summer, will not face any punishment for either initiating or entertaining communication with the Dolphins.
