It is a fact the Bucs were a better team when they had Antonio Brown.
If Brown had been able to stay healthy and not run off the field during the Jets game, both of them might have another ring.
The Bucs have struggled offensively since Brown left and became a rapper. AB has had beef with Tom Brady since he left the team; we might know why now. It looks like Brady was getting frustrated with AB’s behavior and wrote him a long text to get him to turn his life around.
Tom Brady was deeply concerned with Antonio Brown’s decision-making well before his shirtless exit from the NFL … with the controversial receiver going public with a passionate text from his former teammate in May 2021.
AB has made headlines for all the wrong reasons recently — from ripping his pads off and quitting on the Bucs mid-game in January, to allegedly exposing himself in a public pool, to showing his support for Kanye West’s “White Lives Matter” movement … and most recently, making disrespectful comments about TB12 amid his divorce from Gisele Bündchen.
But before all that, Tom appeared to have sent AB a heartfelt plea to get his act together … saying, “You are demonstrating very poor decisions and poor communication to so many people who have gone above and beyond to help you.”
This was before the season started, so it appears Brady knew what direction it was headed.
It was a reasonable effort by Brady, but it didn’t work out, and we have all seen the results. Brady is struggling to make the playoffs. His wife left him for her karate trainer, and Antonio Brown is a rapper now that hangs out with Kanye West.
What a time to be alive.
