For the last two springs, Tom Brady has skipped the Patriots' OTAs for what he said was to spend more time with his family.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Well, now that he's with a new team, apparently those plans have changed.

According to Albert Breer of MMQB, the Buccaneers expect him to be there this year, if they happen.

The NFL has already announced OTAs will not start in April due to coronavirus, and it is unclear if/when they will be begin. But, it is worth noting that Brady is making it known he plans on attending after skipping the last two years in New England. Brady only attended the mandatory minicamp in early June.

Obviously, they are more important now that he's with a new team and he needs to get to know his new teammates and the offense. But, it also furthers the narrative of just how frustrated he was the last several years with how things were going with the Patriots.

Brady has already reportedly requested the phone numbers of his new teammates.
