Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady must be close to breaking his friendship with Antonio Brown at this point. Is it really worth it?
Brown’s friendship with Brady may be the best thing he has going, in part because TB12 and AB share a training facility, and that as long as the quarterback is on the receiver’s side, he likely still has some friends in NFL circles.
The minute Brady’s trust is broken, you know Brown has real problems.
Brady has commented on Brown’s Tampa Bay exit on multiple occasions, and at this point seems a bit tired of talking about it. On Thursday, Brown cut ties with Alex Guerrero, Brady’s trainer. He even seemed to blame Brady (in part) in a meme of ‘Home Alone 2’. Whether it was an intentional shot or not, it wasn’t a great look.
Bucs: Tom Brady comments on Antonio Brown drama, again
Brady deflected away from Brown for the first time, suggesting he has a game to prepare for. He’s more than willing to discuss the Buccaneers’ Week 18 matchup against the Carolina Panthers, though!
“I think there’s a lot of personal feelings, obviously. I don’t think this is really the week to discuss it though. I’m just going to do the best I can do as the quarterback of the team, try to put together a great week and finish strong…”
When things get personal, Brady turns off his PR switch. The man doesn’t have time for this, as he’s hoping to lead the Bucs on a journey for his eighth Super Bowl. 8!!
The last thing Brady could care about right now is Brown’s feelings, or his ankle, or how he left the field on Sunday agains the Jets. When Brown was available to help Brady reach his ultimate goal, he was all team AB.
Now? Good luck on your own, AB.
