Tom Brady and Antonio Brown have maintained a seemingly close relationship since their brief time playing together with the Patriots. Brady has been trying to help Brown turn his career around since the star receiver squandered his chance in New England, and that apparently includes putting him in touch with a life coach.
According to Andy Slater of FOX Sports 640, Brady called noted life coach and motivational speaker Tony Robbins and connected him with Brown earlier this year. Robbins and Brown are said to have had a long conversation about A.B. returning to the NFL.
Tom Brady also called @TonyRobbins and got him to have a very long conversation with Antonio Brown earlier this year so the WR would be on track for his NFL return, sources tell me. https://t.co/0Km8JMrQdt
Antonio Brown’s NFL suspension is set to end soon, and he could reunite with Tom Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brown is set to visit with the Bucs on Saturday, the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson reported on Friday. Wilson said both sides are “highly motivated” to reach an agreement.
Veteran free agent Antonio Brown will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday, according to league sources. Both sides are highly motivated to reach an agreement. This move, once finalized, would reunite Brown with his friend and former teammate Tom Brady
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the two sides are working towards a deal, though he says the Seahawks are still in the mix.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports that Tom Brady was pushing the Bucs for the move.
Brown, 32, was one of the top receivers in the NFL from 2013-2018. He spent the first part of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before pushing his way out last year. He got traded to the Raiders, who had enough of him and cut him. The Patriots signed him but then cut him too due to his behavior amid some serious legal issues. He was suspended this season through Week 8 as punishment from the league.
“I didn’t even think about that,” Brady said Thursday, via the Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud. “I think Nick Foles is a hell of a player and a Super Bowl champ. I don’t know one reason or another why I wouldn’t do that. Sometimes I run off the field, sometimes I haven’t. Sometimes if I have a personal relationship, like I have with Drew (Brees) and Justin (Herbert) and Aaron (Rodgers) over the years…I don’t know, I don’t think it’s anything particular other than I have great admiration for Nick and I think he’s a hell of a player. They’re off to a great start.”
Foles again took the high road.
Nick Foles on the handshake snubbing from Tom Brady: “You know it’s happened a few times. Someday Tom and I will have a great conversation about it and probably laugh about it. It is what it is. I think he’s a tremendous player.”
Brady is trying to be complimentary of Foles and make it clear that he doesn’t hold a personal thing against the veteran quarterback. The explanation is more likely that Brady is just so ticked off after the losses that he just runs into the tunnel. You know what that makes Brady? A poor sport. He should keep in mind that being cordial to one’s opponent after a game should come after a win or a loss and remember to do that after his defeats.
Tom Brady is a talented voice actor on top of being the best quarterback in NFL history.
Brady voiced a great hype video ahead of the 2020 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays that FOX released on Tuesday.
Brady, who is from Northern California, is a San Francisco Giants fan. The Giants’ rivalry with the Dodgers coupled with him now playing in Tampa made it an easy decision to say he was rooting for the Rays.
It’s a great time for Tampa sports fans. The Lightning won the Stanley Cup in late September. The Rays are in the World Series. And the Buccaneers are leading the NFC South at 4-2. What’s not to enjoy?
Every so often, we get reminders of how long Tom Brady has been playing football. We got another one on Sunday.
Brady authored one of his signature performances on Sunday in a 38-10 win over the Green Bay Packers. After the game, though, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback got a reminder of his age. He was seen chatting with Packers rookie offensive lineman Jon Runyan Jr. Runyan Jr.’s father, Jon, was a long-time NFL offensive lineman who starred for Michigan in 1995, which also happened to be Brady’s first season at the school as a redshirt freshman.
Caught this at the end, and it's another one of those holy crap @TomBrady images. That's Packers rookie Jon Runyan he's catching up with.
Everything Tom Brady does is calculated, which is why we knew there had to be a reason he has changed the way he takes snaps since he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During his team’s game against the Green Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, we finally received an explanation.
Troy Aikman said on the FOX broadcast that Brady told him he felt he needed to take a more athletic stance this season while receiving shotgun snaps.
Of course, no one randomly changes something after two decades of doing it a certain way, so there has to be more to it than that. When Aikman suggested to Brady that he may have made the change because the snaps haven’t been as accurate this season as in years past, Brady reluctantly admitted that may have something to do with it.
Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen had a few snaps that were off-target on Sunday. One of them in the red zone was particularly bad, but Brady was able to handle it, set his feet and throw a touchdown pass.
Brady has definitely experienced some growing pains in his new offense. We saw the worst of that when he made a massive mistake in last week’s game. His shotgun stance is likely one of several things he has had to tweak since leaving New England.
Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski have teamed up yet again! Treat yourself or a friend with this great Tampa Fiesta shirt. You can buy it here.
“I’m pretty sure my quarterback knows what fourth down is, you know what I mean?” Williams replied. “That’s what I’m saying, like, Aaron Rodgers would never do that. Never. You know what I mean? He’s too smart for that.”
Williams was, of course, referencing Brady’s remarkable mental mistake in last week’s loss to Chicago. The fact that it was so out of character for Brady is probably why so many people have taken shots at him over it.
Tom Brady did not openly admit after last week’s loss to the Chicago Bears that he lost track of downs late in the game, but the future Hall of Famer is finally having a laugh at his own expense over the blunder.
Brady congratulated LeBron James on capturing his fourth NBA title with a great tweet on Monday. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback shared a photoshopped image that shows LeBron’s head on Brady’s body holding up four fingers.
Brady also joked “not bad for a washed up old guy!” The two have continued to play at an extremely high level even as they are considered “old” for their respective sports, so they have that in common.
“Yeah, he knew. He knew,” Arians said when asked if Brady knew what down it was for the play in question.
Arians was looking down when he said it, which is a classic behavior when someone is lying.
Brady was also asked about the play during his postgame news conference. He didn’t really give a straight answer. Another reporter was instructed to ask a question while Brady was trailing off trying to explain things.
“Yeah, we just. You’re up against the clock and you’re up against the uh … I knew we had to gain a chunk, so I should have been thinking more first down instead of chunk,” Brady said.
Both men are doing their best to try covering up things, but everyone saw what we saw. Anything coming out of their mouths at this point is an excuse.
