NFL Hall of Famer Tom Brady made the most of the opportunity, excelling against the Redskins' secondary in team drills and strengthening his chemistry with his team's wide receivers.
"When you practice against your own defense, you see a lot of the same looks," Brady said, after the practice on Tuesday, according to NESN Sports Today. "What we're seeing here the last couple days is pretty different than what our defense does, so hopefully it serves us well in the long run."
Griffin has reportedly has also learned from Brady during the teams joint practices.
