Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said yesterday at her press conference "I've got to tell you this story. Now, I always tell people, I'm not one to gossip, so you didn't hear this from me. Our parks are closed down, and so a lot of our parks staff, they patrol around just to make sure that people aren't doing contact sports and things like that, and saw an individual working out in one of our downtown parks. That individual turned out to be the 42-year-old superstar quarterback, who recently signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after winning six Super Bowls as the longtime quarterback of the New England Patriots.
Mayor Castor added that park personnel cited Brady for violating the city's order and he was forced to leave the park.
