Tom Brady told his teammates to not think of their break as vacation time and instead think of it as a time to improve before training camp starts, Brady told Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal.

I think we really had our vacation. I think that part’s over,” Brady said. “Not that you shouldn’t enjoy time with your family and stuff like that. For those seven months we’re pretty busy every day. I think you really focus on being prepared for camp. It’s really a time to start accelerating your preparation because you’ve got a lot of time to basically know what you need to improve on.
“Maybe it’s conditioning or any particular aspect of your game that you really need to work on that showed up in this particular camp, and you’ve got five weeks to work on it, make it better so you come into camp at the most important time, really at your best.”

Brady also commented on Thompkins and Boyce, saying it’s been fun working with them, but now they need to produce.

“It’s been great. I love working with those guys. We’ve had a great relationship since they got here over a year ago,” Brady said. “They put a lot of time in, a lot of effort to get to the point where they’re at now. And now they’ve got to take advantage of it. You’re only a young player for a certain amount of time in the NFL.

“At that point, people are just waiting for you to produce. You can’t make — nobody can really make mistakes. Not if you want to be a good offense. The best teams have the most consistent, dependable players, and that’s what everyone is out here trying to be for our team, because that’s going to make our team the toughest to beat.”

Brady said making improvements before training camp is crucial.

“We’re just trying to get better and make improvements,” Brady said. “Every year there’s different challenges, a lot of new players, a lot of new scheme things we’re trying to implement. We’ve had our good days and our bad days. Hopefully, we can really build on them and training camp starts pretty quickly. It’s that time of year where we’re ending the spring camps and really be quickly into the summer camps. I’m excited. It’s a great opportunity for all of us.
