Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman’s trip to Montana with Tom Brady showed how intense Patriots QB is even at age 40

Entering his 18th season in the league, Tom Brady has basically admitted he knows all the answers to the test considering he’s faced almost every defense imaginable.

He could probably show up to training camp without doing much in the offseason and still be a dominant quarterback, but that’s not in Brady’s vocabulary. Instead of spending some extra time relaxing this offseason, Brady called up wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola and invited them to his place at the Yellowstone Club in Montana to get some extra reps.

The quarterback even got a grass area near him lined like a football field to make sure he and his wide outs were getting the best work in as possible.

“I mean, he’s going to be doing that until he’s — it’s a lifestyle for him at this point and it’s around the clock for him,” Amendola said Monday. “It’s 24/7. He’s playing really good football. I feel like he’s only getting better. His body is getting strong. He’s as strong as he ever was. It’s nice to see.”

Amendola has been with the Patriots since 2013, so he’s worked with Brady for four seasons. Edelman has been with the team since 2009, so he’s been with Brady for eight years. Even with the wealth of experience, Brady and the receivers know there’s always something to work on. 

This drive is what makes Brady and the Patriots offense one of the best in the league.

“I mean, every day there’s something to work on whether you’ve done it a thousand times or not,” Amendola said. “Just getting out there and trying to find something to get better at every day is why we’re out here.”

While the members of the Patriots offense did extensive work on the field, there was some time to enjoy the mountains, as they showed on social media.

“We got a lot of good work in and then we got to see the beautiful country side of Montana, too,” Amendola said.
