Tom has been re-employed during the conference, according to NBC Sports. He's going to deal with some personal things while in training camp, according to the coach. He said he and Brady discussed his absence ahead of the camp. He planned to complete two weeks of training camp knowing he wouldnt play the first two games.
Bowles had this to say, he did not want to take away Blaine [Gabbert] and Kyle [Trask] as well as Griff [Ryan Griffin] as far as going into these next two games. It's something he has to deal with, as he's not concerned about Bradys absence nor his commitment.
Brady led the NFL in passing attempts, passing yards, and passing touchdowns last season. The Buccaneers are expected to be Super Bowl contenders again this season.

Brady was released from the Buccaneers in March following a brief leave from the football league. During his two months on the field, Ive realized that my role is still there. That day will come. But it will come. My family and I support me throughout my 23 seasons in Tampa.
