Brady on Antonio Brown staying with him: I didn’t say that to anyone publicly

During Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Steelers, Al Michaels said that Antonio Brown‘s agent Drew Rosenhaus told him that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered to let Brown stay with him while the wideout is getting acclimated to New England.

Brady was asked about that during a Monday morning appearance on WEEI and didn’t sound thrilled that it was a topic of conversation during the game.

“I think there’s a lot of things said on TV. I didn’t say that to anyone publicly,” Brady said.

Brady did say that it was important to him to build close relationships with his teammates

“My teammates are important to me. Relationships are important to me. That is the reason why I play,” Brady said. “I have had so many great teammates over the years and it’s part of what makes football so special — the relationships you build with the guys that you play with. This year is no different.”

Brown’s relationship with Ben Roethlisberger deteriorated significantly in his final days with the Steelers. Whether they’re roommates or not, Brady will be aiming for something better with his new teammate.

  1. When you get spoiled with weapons, you blow it in February. Just saying.
    ————
    Was that Tom out there covering Tyree or Burris?

    Maybe by blowing it yo mean win MVP?

  2. If AB84 keeps the nonsense away (and a big if it is), this offense might be record setting. I think last night he saw that he’s just another piece of the puzzle. First thing he does out of place and he will be tossed out of there.

    BB gave him a lifeline to ball out this season and score a good contract elsewhere next year. Put up good numbers and behave well & the raiders drama will be forgiven and forgotten. That’s how the NFL works.

  3. Just as Gruden “expected” Brown to play, Brady “didn’t say to anyone publicly”. Translation: Antonio and/or Drew, your days of locker room video, posting internal memos on social media and repeating what is told to you are over.

  4. Tom just wants to show him round his digs, see if he’ll buy it off him as Tom’s looking to sell up. Sure AB has $16m down the back of the sofa

  5. With Randy Moss and the highest scoring offense in history, Brady scored 14 points. He blew it.

    Was that before or after Brady returned the smack talk to Burress before the game? Dude, come on. Brady wildly underperformed in postseasons from 2007-2012.

    It’s why BB drafted JimmyG and worked with him daily and why he’s worked with Sidham daily.

    You can’t change the past. Scoring 14 or 17 points in a SB in an offensive era like this. 9/10 out lose.

    The one time was this past year when the D won it.

    You can’t have stunted drives and never score for an entire half and expect to win a SB.

  7. No he didnt say it publicly. But that’s the problem with AB. He makes everything public, even when it shouldnt be.(i know maybe it wasn’t him who aired this out but he doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt here). And this has nothing to do with the Pat’s as far as I’m concerned. I’m not a raider fan or an AB hater,(I was actually kind of a fan of his and constantly picking him on my fantasy teams) but he has done nothing but cause problems and air his teams dirty laundry.

  8. Brady says something privately and the next thing you know AB’s agent discloses it publicly. Not good. Brady can’t be happy.

  9. “With Randy Moss and the highest scoring offense in history, Brady scored 14 points. He blew it.”

    12 years and 3 SB wins later this is all these people have left. lol wow

  10. This was a direct shot at Big Ben from Brady. Brady is showing he is a leader of men and he can help AB. Big Ben as Emanuel Sanders said before is not a leader of men. Never has been, never will be.

  11. Im not a patriot fan at all, but I completely understand why Belichick is how he is towards that media up there. There’s a reason for everything, and the media should look themselves in the mirror before they write something. Some things are private a should stay private.actually a good gesture on TB12’s behalf. That’s why NFL football works in NE because Belichick is a master of the media and hopefully he can help show AB how to funnel things instead of being out of control all the time.
    Media is never going to stop. They are WORMS with microphones.

  12. Drew Rosenhaus told him that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered to let Brown stay with him while the wideout is getting acclimated to New England.

    Well Tom, make sure that Antonio understands how to use your personal freezing machine properly before you let him in it. (Sorry…..I don’t know the name of that silly thing)

  13. This situation with Brown coming to the Patriots is being overdone by the press as usual

    This situation is a non losing situation other than Kraft tossing a few million of his billions out the window which means nothing to him if Brown acts like a child in Foxboro

    Belichick won’t put up with any ‘me me me’ crap – its the Patriots way or we send you on your way

    This team is stacked with talent with or without Brown – there is absolutely nothing to lose here

  14. Krafty Bob talked out of school to AMichaels. As much as he’s done for this franchise, the sooner he turns things over to his son and fades away, the better.

    —————————————————————————
    You can’t change the fact that in 2010, the Pats defense let the Giants hold the ball for nearly 39 minutes in the game. A little tough to score when you don’t have the ball. Ask Jim Kelly and the Bills. Oh, if Welker can catch a pass, they win.. A little knowledge and research is a wonderful thing..

  16. Bennett, Gordon and Brown.

    If the Pats can corral that stampede I’ll be impressed.

    Should make for an interesting season of quotes. I can’t wait to see when BB ticks one of these guys off, then Bennett can play a race card and burn the whole thing down.

    Popcorn is being popped, but who knows how this will play out.

    You also can’t change the fact of this:

    1. Brady was lazy and took a Safety to start the game. That’s one full attempted drive blown.
    2. Brady threw a reckless INT on FIRST down in Giants territory to start the 4th.
    3. Welker, Brady’s bestest buddy on the team, dropped a ball on a less than well thrown ball late in the game.

    All 3 are huge, avoidable gaffes tied to the skewed TOP argument.

    Sure, NE’s D needed to fall on 1 of the 2 fumbles they caused, and that would have helped the TOP failures by NE’s offense.

    Your popcorn may burn. Don’t expect Bennett to do what you said since he’ll be winning a lot, who knows on Gordon, and they won’t tolerate anything with Brown.

    N’Keal Harry is back mid season. Enjoy the view!

  19. I have no respect for Brady or Belichick. As if they havent won enough already, or like theyre gonna get fired this year if they dont win, to sell their souls and their class just so they can easily win a few more foosball games by acquiring/rewarding a guy who acted so dishonorably and disrespected the game like that.

  20. Not surprising Brown opened his mouth and Rosenhaus just repeated it. Second, the Super Bowl against the Giants Brady had no protection he got blasted on nearly every play his line was non existent don’t care how many weapons you have can’t throw if you have no time. Plus, Samuel drops the easiest pick ever.

  21. The NFL needs an updated policy.

    Being cut for disciplinary reasons that allow for voiding of guaranteed money should also put a player on a 1 year wait for reinstatement.

    Can no one see the precedent that Brown and the Pats just set? Might as well call it collusion as quickly as he was picked up.

  22. It was a response to a specific post about 2007 with Randy Moss. But if you want to talk about the 3 Super Bowls since then…1 from the stupidest play call in history, 1 from the biggest choke in history and 1 from the stupidest penalty in history…

  23. As President Harding, and countless others throughout history have said, this is a “Tempest in a Teapot.” It seems every single breath AB is going to take will be over analyzed in the media.

  24. “During Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Steelers, Al Michaels said that Antonio Brown‘s agent Drew Rosenhaus told him that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered to let Brown stay with him while the wideout is getting acclimated to New England.”

    Folks, it says in the paragraph that it’s Brown’s agent who told the TV people, not Brown himself.

    ==============

    Their job is to win games. Get off your high horse!

  26. This is why Tom Brady is the best and always will be the best. He understands what transcends football. He is a champion and it is in his blood because he nurtures and respects the people around him that make him what he is. Everyone wants to try a little harder for Tom Brady because the guy is legit. Same for Belichick. That’s why New England is the best, not because they cheat. I am on board. Let’s get it, New England.
