Watch Tom Brady Snag Appropriately Inflated Ball With Sick One-Handed Catch
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady might be seething over the news that the NFL upheld their initial decision to suspend him for four games during the upcoming season because of DeflateGate, but that hasn’t stopped him from flashing some football skills during opening day of Pats training camp.
While Brady lit into the league for their decision with a Facebook post on his page yesterday, he was back on the gridiron with the rest of his mates today, running around and taking part in practice.
And he looks like he may have picked up some newfound athleticism during the offseason, too.

Running a trick play with former college quarterback Julian Edelman, the wide receiver-reverse-pass ended up with Tom Terrific plucking the ball out of the air with one hand, eventually crossing the goal-line for a score.
Bet there weren’t too many people who saw that coming on the Pats defense.
Brady might have one career reception—coming against the Miami Dolphins in 2001—but he hasn’t exactly flashed the best athleticism in his 15 years in the league. Pats fans are just hoping he gets to show-off his golden arm for a full season after his appeal is heard.
