The only thing left for Tom Brady is to walk on water in Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers' quarterback played the entire 2020 season - you know, the one where he won his seventh Super Bowl - with a torn left MCL, according to multiple reports.

The Tampa Bay Times was the first to report to the news.

Oh, and it wasn't suffered when he was with Tampa Bay. It happened when he was finishing his run with the New England Patriots.

Brady had surgery in late February to repair the MCL tear, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Brady led the Buccaneers to an 11-5 record by throwing for 4,633 yards with 40 touchdowns against 12 interceptions.

Tom Brady is entering his 22nd NFL season.
