In August, Brady missed 11 days of training camp, and several ideas have suggested various explanations for the player’s unavailability.
First, they thought he might have missed training to film The Masked Singer. They then believed he had vanished because of the disintegration of his marriage to Gisele Bündchen.
Twitter users also noted that Brady’s speech appeared stiff, and his forehead did not move as he talked, both of which are side effects of Botox.
