Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown went on a wild rant and declared quarterback Tom Brady can't do anything my himself. Brady left the New England Patriots and formed a star-studded team in Tampa.
Brady won the Super Bowl last year and the Buccaneers are one of the top favorites to win it all this year as well. “Brady can’t do s–t by himself,” Brown said on the Full Send Podcast. “But you guys are going to make it seem like he’s just this heroic guy.
We’re all humans, bro. We’re all dependent on somebody else to do the job”.
Brown continued taking shots at Brady
Brown, who was released by the Buccaneers this week, questioned why he was playing a a prove-it deal while Rob Gronkowski was immediately granted a good contract.
“To me, a friend is someone who’s got your back,” Brown said. “Not everybody in sports is going to be your friend. Tom Brady’s my friend why? Because I’m a good football player. He needs me to play football.
People have different meanings of what friendship is”. Brown suggested he and Brady were only good because they thought they could help each other on the football field. “You can’t really expect anyone to be your friend in the business of football,” Brown said.
“In the business of football, our business is winning. Brady and I like winning. We have that in common. That’s what makes me want to be around him, makes us jell, makes us great. I’m out here getting prove-it contracts, you say you’re my friend, I shouldn’t be playing on that type of deal when I came here and we won a Super Bowl”.
Brown didnt' stop there, claiming Brady is the general managed of the Buccaneers. “Brady is the general manager,” Brown said on the Full Send Podcast. “He’s the guy my agent made the contract with, he’s the middleman and politician.
I talked to Tom, and he knows I’m not going to play”. Brown also called out Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians. “Imagine the guy who you think has your back, who you flew here with to do a mission, and they know your situation, and you get there and you’re battling with them, that he tells you that because you can’t go to war with them, he tells you to get the f–k out of there?” Brown said.
“I’m an alpha male. If you discriminate on my public image and my name, at that point, it’s f–k you too professionally”.
