Tom Brady, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman doing high-altitude training in Montana

While some NFL players might be vacationing or kicking back after a long Fourth of July weekend, the New England Patriots are hard at work.

Intensely training in the high altitude air of Montana, Tom Brady (the soon-to-be 40 year-old quarterback), brought along receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola to work on their chemistry.



No rest for the weary here. It is difficult enough to practice in the heat of July. When high altitude is added into the equation, that takes the intensity to a new level. A level apparently Brady and the gang are willing to endure to keep trying to be best at the sport.

As for Edelman, he was in excellent enough physical shape to make this year’s “ESPN’s Body Issue”. He is clearly not missing a beat.

If all of this doesn’t make us want to drag our lazy butts off of whatever squishy surface we are sitting on and put down the bag of chips, nothing will.

Enjoy “Summer Camp” as Brady calls it, guys.
