Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) is progressing 'very well' in his recovery from post-Super Bowl knee surgery, according to general manager Jason Licht. 'I talked to him last week,' Licht said Thursday, April 1. 'I know things are going well. I don't want to put an exact timeline on it right now because I don't want to set expectations one way or the other, but I know that things are going very well.'
Huddle Up: Brady returned to the fantasy QB top 10 ranks last season after a two-year hiatus, and even with his 44th birthday coming up in August, he remains a low-end QB1 consideration in Year 2 with a Bucs' offense that looks to be bringing back most all of the key components.

Huddle Up: Good news for dynasty managers who don't yet need to worry about finding a replacement for the future Hall of Famer. So long as the Buccaneers are able to keep the bulk of their receiving corps intact, Brady will be a mid- to low-tier QB1 for at least one more season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) probably will not be able to participate in any practice drills until June because of his offseason knee surgery, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Brady likely will not do much this offseason but should be ready for training camp. He is coming off a terrific 2020 season and should have most of his pass catchers back next season. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Blaine Gabbert is a realistic candidate to take over as the starting quarterback for the Buccaneers should Tom Brady choose to retire after the 2021 season, based on comments made by general manager Jason Licht on Thursday, Feb. 11.
'He is one guy, my scouts and I talk about this a lot, he's just one guy that I love to watch throw every day in practice because he has got a cannon. He's very accurate with his throws as well and he can just really whistle them in in tight windows. If ... he had been forced to play more, I think that he would have really opened a lot of people's eyes about how talented he is, especially being in the same system for a couple of years,' Licht told the Pewter Report podcast.
