Former five-time First Team-team All-Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens ripped a fan on Twitter who compared him to Antonio Brown. Owens was one of the most productive wide receivers in NFL history but he also had his negative moments on the field.
Brown has been one of the most controversial players in the NFL over the last couple of years and on Sunday he ripped of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey and left the field during the third quarter.
After the game, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady suggested Brown needed a help.
"Yeah, I mean that's obviously a difficult situation, and I think we all want him to -- I think everybody should hopefully do what they can to help him in ways that he really needs it," said Brady, per CBS Sports.
"We all love him, we care about him deeply. We want to see him be at his best, and unfortunately it won't be with our team. We have a lot of friendships that will last and again I think the most important thing about football are the relationships with your friends and your teammates and they go beyond the field.
I think everyone should be very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things that are happening."
Owens had none of the comparison between him and Brown
Shortly after the game, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Brown was no longer a Buc.
Le'Veon Bell, who was teammate with Brown during their days with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was sorry for how everything went down. "I found out when we got into the locker room at the end of the game," Bell said.
"I instantly sent him a text, to try to catch up with him real quick. Obviously he texted me back and I talked to him. He's still one of my close friends. Like you won't hear me talking bad about AB at all. Obviously I understand, things happen, but he's one of my closest friends I've been around, a close teammate, overall a good person.
Some bad decision-making at times, but he's human, not perfect, and we'll continue to move on without him and keep moving forward. "It's tough. Obviously when I came over here, I was happy to be reunited with him.
Unfortunately it was only two games, but at the end of the day, I wish the best for him outside of football or whatever's next for him."
