From a 2017 article:
Tom Brady is a proponent and reportedly keeps a float tank of his own at home to help him remain atop his game as he nears 40.And speaking of Super Bowl coverage:
The edge, then, as players describe it, isn't necessarily in the relaxation experienced while in the tank. It's that those moments of relaxation lead to better sleep later on. Improved quality of sleep is a very good thing for an athlete, of course, since it's linked to improved reaction time, quicker physical recovery, and an increased capacity for learning.
