Antonio Brown unloaded on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady in his latest post. On Monday, Brown posted a message on his Instagram Story, accusing the Buccaneers of trying to "intentionally hurt" him. Also, Brown claimed he was lied to by Brady.
"They tried to hurt me intentionally @buccaneers," Brown wrote. "Sent me out there after knowing I was still hurt. "Tom said he would throw it if I came to play hurt, I came. "He didn't throw it.
Imagine being hurt, haivng to play through this and being lied too. "Coach said if I couldn't run on this get the f--- of here. "F--- all you MF. "Still can't stop me @nfl."
Brown stormed off the field in Week 17
In the third quarter of the Week 17 game against the Jets, Brown took off his pads and ran out of the field.
After the game, Brady suggested Brown needed understanding and 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," Brady said after the game.
"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." After the incident, Brown said he and Brady were only good because the quarterback felt Brown could helo him.
"To me, a friend is someone who's got your back," Brown said on the Full Send Podcast. "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." In the end, no one benefited from the incident that happened in Week 17. Brown hasn't been signed by any teams and the Buccaneers failed to win the Super Bowl. Brown, who won his first Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers last year, is hoping to be on a team next season.
