New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has spoken to the media for the first time since his four-week suspension came to an end.
“It was great to be back in the building. It was certainly great to be back to work. It’s been a long four weeks for me, but I’m excited to get started on my preparation for Cleveland. I’m anxious for the week ahead. I want to get back out on the practice field. This is what I love to do, and now I have an opportunity to do it,” the Super Bowl winning quarterback Brady told Westwood One radio, according to ESPN.

Brady also added, “My teammates have been working their butts off, and that’s what they expect of me. I’ll take the days as they come.”
The University of Michigan product was suspended for four games for his alleged role in allegedly deflating footballs. The Patriots are currently 3-1, an impressive record considering that they have played two games and a half games with a backup quarterback.
Brady will take the field Sunday for the first time this NFL season against the winless Cleveland Browns.
