Tom Brady and Antonio Brown were literally very close friends during Brown’s tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even the legendary QB opened up his door for his fellow teammate when Brown was in his early days with the team.
But things somehow turned ugly when the former Pittsburgh Steelers was released from Buccaneers because of his scandalous act after an altercation with the team coach. At his removal, Brady said, “We all love him, we care about him deeply, we wanna see him be at his best; unfortunately, it won’t be with our team.”
Followed by his removal, Brown had been very critical of his behavior towards Tom as he is seen defaming and criticizing him for his poor performance or an unfortunate defeat in a game.
Well, till now the exact reasons behind the friend-turned-foe attitude of the players are in the dark as both Tom and Antonio shared no concrete reasons. But many associated Brown’s removals from the Buccaneers to be one of the biggest chunks behind the issue which fueled up the fire of hatred between the two.
