Apparently a spot on the Buccaneers and a Super Bowl ring isn’t enough to cause Antonio Brown to think about what he says about Tom Brady.
Contrary to the facade that he is putting up, it seems like Antonio Brown is really having a hard time. A goofy rap career is one thing, but going after Tom Brady and the Buccaneers is a weird move for a guy that owes so much to the quarterback.
Brady did everything in his power to extend Brown’s career in the NFL. The GOAT even went as far as letting Brown live in his house.
Tom Brady showed nothing but support to a player that he genuinely seemed to care about, and the end result was limited outside of that one magical season.
Brown quit on the Bucs when they desperately needed a veteran to step up. AB then caused a media firestorm for weeks as everyone tried to figure out what it was that the Bucs did that caused him to react in such a way.
Whatever it truly was that set Brown off, it doesn’t seem like going after Brady at this point is the best course of action.
Brown comparing his treatment to Brady’s is almost comical. One is the best player in the history of the sport. Another was a lock for the Hall of Fame before his persona caused him to fall off the cliff. They still aren’t in the same category.
Brady has never done the things that Brown does. Brady has never been that level of distraction either.
The Buccaneers knew about Brady’s absence ahead of time. They didn’t know that Antonio Brown was going to quit on his team in the middle of the game.
Again, these players are not the same, and their treatment has been entirely fair in the grand scope of the league.
Antonio Brown needs to keep Tom Brady’s name out of his mouth. He is only making himself look worse as he continues to dig these holes.
