Tom Brady Got So Mad He Punted the Ball Into the Stands at Monday's Practice

It sounds like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was less than pleased with the results of Monday's practice session.

Multiple Patriots reporters who were covering the practice said Brady was so upset with the team's execution during 11-on-11 drills that he asked for the ball back after an incomplete pass to running back James White and punted it into the stands.

Those who were there said Brady was fired up from the start of practice, but he got really angry after a number of bad drops and miscommunications with various receivers.

Angry Brady is nothing new. He's been seen yelling at teammates and coaches before, including last season, when he got involved in a sideline spat with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. He had a similar exchange with former offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien in 2011.

The Patriots are scheduled to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday in a rematch of their Super Bowl LII loss.
