Daily Brady Lessons For Jaelon Darden

September 23rd, 2021

Rookie returner/receiver Jaelon Darden.

Training camp is over but the teaching continues.

It was said that Tom Brady was coaching up rookie fourth-round pick receiver/returner Jaelon Darden through training camp.

It impressed Bucs coaches and many observers. But it’s continuing during the stress and intensity of the regular season.

That was the word from Bucco Bruce Arians on BSPN Radio today.

“We got a young wide receiver Jaelon Darden, who I think is going to have a heck of a future, and Tom just takes him under his wing every day and walks through things with him,” Arians said. “You know, it’s different when you’re walking through it with Antonio Brown and you’re talking to a rookie. He’s such a great teammate.”

Arians went on to laud Brady’s energy and youthful approach. “Nobody comes to practice with more energy than Tom.”

What an alien Brady is, making time for a rookie who is inactive every week on a team loaded with wide receiver depth. You just know somehow that’s going to pay off in December or perhaps in October of 2022.

    Darden is gonna be special, we just gotta let him slow the game down and then his quicks will shine. He has elite twitch like Dante hall.

    LOL china…… some things go better off unsaid.

  4. Steven007 Says:

    If Brady believes in Darden I’ll take it as a positive sign.

  5. Exkwood Says:

    He won’t be anything if he doesn’t learn how to accelerate north and not dance East and west …… very very hard to change your style even just a little ….. example ….. Peter Warrick

  6. Taampabaybucfan Says:

    If Brady takes more than just an interest and actually devotes time to a player, then that really means something.
    I suspect that Darden will end up being very good….

    And…fyi….you can teach north & south….but that jitterbug motion….nope.

  7. Craig Says:

    He might be the Stupor Bowl hero. There is a reason to keep an inactive receiver up to snuff, injuries are a fact in the NFL.

    I don’t want injuries or Covid to keep anyone off the field, but insurance is an important thing.

  8. Wild Bill Says:

    I am sure he is fast but he doesn’t look like he has an NFL durable body. Not sure he survives pro game hits.

  9. SOEbuc Says:

    Damn Bill you didn’t even give him a chance to get activated.

  10. Bucfanforever Says:

    Might payoff on Sunday

  11. Stanglassman Says:

    That’s what they said about Christian McCaffery when he was coming out of Stanford. Too small and won’t hold up to NFL hits.

  12. ModHairKen Says:

    Ugly. Doesn’t run north and south. Not durable.

    Great comments, guys. Great way to elevate someone. Really constructive. You who said these things must have hard lives. I hope things improve if that’s the explanation for why you’re so nasty.

  13. SB~LV Says:

    ONE CUT and then get your azz up field!
    That is ALL he needs to do this year.
    Positive yards, this is the NFL not NW Texas whatever!

  14. Bojim Says:

    Alien. Perfect.

  15. SufferingSince76 Says:

    I hope he’s doing the same with Trask.

  16. David Says:

    We saw in preseason how explosive and quick and elusive he can be. It’s just a matter of learning the O and being trusted to get some playing time with so many loaded weapon at receiver . I would not be surprised if he’s active this week and gets a couple quick hits to see what he can do

  17. Dan Williamson Says:

    Strongglassman macaffery on my fantasy team. He pulled a dang hammy last night. He killin me.
