Tom Brady offered Antonio Brown to live with him
Tom Brady and Antonio Brown will be connecting for touchdown passes on the New England Patriots before long if all goes well. Brady apparently is hoping to strengthen their connection off the field too.
Prior to “Sunday Night Football” between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, Al Michaels delivered a report. Michaels shared some notable nuggets, including that Brown reached out to the Patriots when things were falling apart with the Steelers. The issue is Pittsburgh was never going to trade Brown to the Patriots, so Brown’s camp had to look elsewhere, like Oakland.
The other nugget from Michaels described how enthusiastic Brady was about the Patriots signing Brown on Saturday after the wide receiver was released by the Raiders.
It's a big thumbs from @TomBrady on the Antonio Brown deal.

“Kraft also told me that when he broke the news to Tom Brady [Saturday], Brady initially said ‘I’m 100 percent in.’ Two minutes later Tom came back, said to Kraft, ‘I’m 1,000 percent in.’ Then he came back two minutes later he came back and said ‘I’m a million percent in.’
“Drew (Rosenhaus), Brown’s agent, said Brady told Brown, ‘come move in with me until you get settled in New England.’ How happy is Tom?”
Receiving options looked like they would be a problem for the Patriots after Rob Gronkowski retired. But the team got Josh Gordon back, Demaryius Thomas and now Antonio Brown. Brady has to be sniffing Super Bowl seven.
Can you imagine the social media videos Brady and Brown could put together?
