TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tom Brady isn’t content with making the Tampa Bay Buccaneers relevant again.

The six-time Super Bowl champion is hungry to win another title.

Brady spoke for the first time since reporting to training camp, talking among other things about the challenge of learning a new playbook for the first time in 19 years, and the difficulty of doing it without the benefit of a normal off-season routine due to the coronavirus pandemic.
