Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians spoke about how he saw quarterback Tom Brady develop his coaching style during his first season at Tampa Bay.
The Arians even took what appeared to be a dig at Bill Belichick and the Patriots with his comments, saying New England “didn’t allow him to train.”
Tampa Bay linebacker Devin White, who had a standout performance in the team’s last victory over the New Orleans Saints, explained a specific lesson he learned from Brady.
“What I love about Tom is that he’s still teaching,” White told NBC Sports’ Peter King, who also spoke to the Arians. “Teach me how to be a great leader. Every day, at every training, he puts the team before him. The first few days he’s in the locker room we’re all like, ‘We’re in the locker room with the greatest quarterback ever! Like, I wanna talk to him, I wanna take a picture with him. But then, it’s your teammate. You are here for a reason.
White noted that a circumstance arose after the young linebacker was ruled out from the upcoming Pro Bowl. Brady took the opportunity to share an important lesson.
