Facing an upcoming matchup on the highest judicial field in the nation, the U.S. Supreme Court, Tom Brady and his lawyers reported for their first day of legal minicamp.
From the start the quarterback and his legal team, led by trial lawyer Ted Olsen, knew they had their work cut out for them. Although Brady is a four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback, he quickly realized that few, if any, of his football skills translated into the courtroom.
Brady was seen running up and down the Gillette Stadium bleachers holding extremely large legal textbooks, copies of the constitution for all 50 states, and a deflated football. “I’m not going to say I didn’t have to make some adjustments, because I did,” said Brady following a grueling day of legal minicamp. “The drills were surprisingly physical.”
“Most legal rookies don’t realize that court is 90% physical and only 10% mental. There’s much more footwork than actual talking,” said Olsen. “This is an important case, and we want to make sure everyone on the team is ready for the day we walk into that courtroom and petition the Supreme Court to delay the case until Tom Brady decides to retire.”
