Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are still on track to complete the deal that will bring the 42-year-old quarterback to Tampa Bay, but they were still ironing out details as of Thursday morning, according to ESPN.

Jeff Darlington reports that Brady will undergo a physical Thursday in New York. A few obstacles: Brady had to find a doctor, and the ideal situation would have been a team doctor, but that was impossible because of the coronavirus outbreak.

“These are unprecedented times and everyone is on the same page. Everything is moving along just fine,” Darlington wrote on Twitter.

As of Wednesday night, the two parties were still trying to finalize contract language, according to ESPN.


Brady announced earlier in the week he would be leaving the Patriots after 20 years in New England.

Per Adam Schefter, the contract language for the quarterback is “more challenging” this offseason than any time in recent memory. While Schefter warns there are “no problems foreseen," he adds that there’s no deal quite yet.
