Tom Brady has one week remaining in his 4-game NFL suspension, but at this point, it's looking like Bill Belichick could put a cardboard cutout of Ryan Leaf at quarterback and still handily defeat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
And from the looks of Brady and Gisele Bundchen's vacation photos, football is not the first thing on Brady's mind these days.
That honor goes to gettin' some sunshine on his goalpost!
Yes, in photos recently published by the New York Post, the Patriots QB can be seen catching some rays in the nude while on vacation in the seaside town of Positano.
He may not be doing much for your fantasy team at the moment, but at least Brady's giving the locals an eyeful of his future hall of fame dong.
As you've likely heard by now, Brady was suspended by the league in connection with the "Deflategate" scandal of 2015.
He was supposed to serve the suspension last season, but successfully fought Roger Goodell and company in court and had it lifted.
In April, the suspension was reinstated by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, who found that Goodell “properly exercised his broad discretion" in punishing the 39-year-old QB.
Brady gave up fighting the suspension only when he reached the point where the U.S. Supreme Court was his only remaining option.
You can't say the guy didn't try his damndest!
It sucks for Pats fans that Brady was forced to sit for a quarter of what's sure to be one of his final seasons, but the man is living proof that sometimes when you lose, you really win.
While Julian Edelman is nervously slinging the pigskin at a tire swing in his backyard, Brady is relaxing on the Mediterranean coast with his bikini-clad supermodel wife.
Unlike those Orlando Bloom photos, there's no sign of what Brady's working with under center, but based on the grin on his face, we think it's safe to say there's zero shame in his game.
It's good to be Brady.
And it sucks to be the Cleveland Browns, who will face the wrath of a reinstated Brady in Week 5.
Of course it kinda sucks to be the Cleveland Browns all the time.
At least you have the Cavs!
