The NFL was aflutter for about a day this week when the University of Southern California athletics department tweeted a photo of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady working out with new slot receiver Danny Amendola at the USC facilities.
Somewhere, Peyton Manning probably got to thinking about flying to see Wes Welker and matching Brady throw for throw.
Everywhere around the NFL fans were both impressed and depressed -- the first with the idea that Brady is already working on his craft four months before the start of the preseason and secondly, that their hometown QBs might not be keeping pace.
I know some Dolphins fans got worried.
I got emails from a couple.
I had some ask me on twitter if Ryan Tannehill is also working with Miami's receivers or whether he's vacationing and playing tennis as he did last week.
Someone asked Tannehill about Brady putting in work and Tannehill responded:
"Been having throwing session (sic) w my wideouts for weeks now," Tannehill tweeted.
Within seconds of that tweet, one of the receivers apparently joining those sessions jumped into the fray.
"Ya! Check yo self!" Brian Hartline added in some unremarkable English.
(Just kidding, Brian).
And although I cannot tell you how many Miami receivers are involved in these sessions, or how frequent they are or whether new additions Mike Wallace, Dustin Keller and Brandon Gibson are involved, at least you can know that folks aren't just standing around watching Brady gain chemistry with his newest receiver.
By the way, Brady on Thursday did a session with Terrell Owens.
I would be surprised if the Patriots are going to sign Owens, 39 and two years out of regular-season action, to a contract. And I know the Dolphins aren't going to do it, either.
I say this because I expect those are the next questions someone is bound to ask.
