Tom Brady avoided any kind of trespassing charge and any fine from the NFL for his bungled visit to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator's house last week.
The NFL opened an investigation into Brady visiting Byron Leftwich's house to pick up the Buccaneers playbook and determined that the new Bucs quarterback did not violate any offseason work rules.
According to the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement, players and coaches are not permitted to discuss the playbook before the start of the offseason program.
"We made an inquiry and determined there was no violation. It was a brief personal visit and Tom picked up the playbook," the NFL said in a statement.
Brady's visit last week almost certainly would have flown under the radar completely had the six-time Super Bowl champion not mistakenly entered Leftwich's next-door neighbour's home thinking it was his offensive coordinator's.
That case of accidental trespassing occurred shortly after Brady was kicked out of a public park that had been closed as part of the state of Florida's shelter-in-place orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.
