Antonio Brown has torched the Tom Brady bridge with what he said on a podcast Friday.
The Antonio Brown story is becoming more tragic by the day. He is trying to make peace with Tom Brady, his long-time supporter.
According to reports, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers team and the New England Patriots were very close before things went sour at MetLife on Sunday afternoon for all to see. Brown was released by the Buccaneers. He will not likely play another game in the NFL. If you choose to vote for Brown into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (or not), it is at your discretion.
This is Brown basically saying that he and Brady no longer are friends.
“To me, a friend is someone who’s got your back,” Brown spoke on Friday’s 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 soccer. People have different meanings of what friendship is.”

“You can’t really expect anyone to be your friend in the business of football,” said Brown. “In the business of football, our business is winning. Brady and I enjoy winning. That’s what we have 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 is the only one who will be able to win in this matter. His outrageous MetLife stunts made mockery out of football. There was nothing more sad than an obese fan rushing onto the field during a game. Brown may have an injury to his ankle but he’s doing it in the worst possible way. He doesn’t give a damn about the bad reputation he has.
Brown should not be judged by those who claim he is in need of help. He must treat people better. We don’t see any evidence that Brown is a great human being based on what he has done in the past decade. He speaks louder than words. While he is comfortable enough to rip Brady on a podcast, everybody knows Brown’s career was over before Brady tried to save him from himself.
Brady would not want to be friends with Brown at this stage. There is nothing to be gained.
