NFL quarterback Tom Brady on Monday was spotted working out in a Tampa, Fla., park closed to prevent large social gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor (D) spoke of the incident during her Monday press conference with St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman (D).

"I got to tell you this story, too. Now, I always tell people, I'm not one to gossip, so you didn't hear this from me," Castor said to reporters.

"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," Castor said.

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.

Castor added that a staff member asked Brady to leave the park.

The Hill has reached out to the Buccaneers for comment.
