The 42-year-old NFL star was discovered working out in a downtown park earlier this week, and park staff ordered him to leave, Mayor Jane Castor said. Like many public places around the country, the park was closed to visitors under coronavirus regulations.
“No harm — no foul, and thanks for being a good sport,” she added.
The mayor’s letter was addressed to Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was traded this week to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and will be reuniting with Brady.
“We are so glad to have you here. While most people retire and come to Florida, you came out of retirement to head our way,” she wrote to the pair.
Tampa is slated to host next year’s Super Bowl.
