Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady appeared to make himself at home with his new team after tossing five touchdowns last weekend.

Finding a permanent home for his family, however, may not be going as smoothly.

The New York Post on Thursday knocked down reports that the 43-year-old Brady is reportedly interested in a $7.5 million Tampa Bay-area mansion located in a private community.

Brady and his family have been living in Derek Jeter’s mansion in the Tampa area since April when he signed with the Buccaneers but Jeter is in the process of selling the home.

According to TMZ, the six-time Super Bowl champ is in the later phases of negotiations of the custom-built five-bedroom home in a gated community in Clearwater, Florida. The site reported that he could close at some point this week.

The 8,548 square feet home has 5 full baths and 3 half baths and

Ontario reports 653 COVID-19 cases as new public health measures take effect

Ontario is reporting 653 cases of COVID-19 today and 41 deaths related to the coronavirus, but Health Minister Christine Elliott says an ongoing data review at Toronto Public Health is at least partly responsible for the spike.

The province was able to complete 46,254 tests in the previous 24 hours, but nearly twice that number — 91,322 — are still listed as “under investigation.”

Meanwhile, new public health restrictions kick in today in three of Ontario’s COVID-19 hot spots.

The provincial government announced Friday that Ottawa, Toronto and Peel Region would face tighter regulations as
