It is being reported that the word among teams interested in Tom Brady was that he wants to bring Antonio Brown with him where ever he landed. Considering that he is landing in Tampa Bay and Bruce Arians had already mentioned that he thinks Brown “is too much…diva,” could this cause an issue for the Buccaneers?
Brown snapped back on Twitter about Arians’ comment, stating that (Arians) “He didn’t draft me he drafted Emmanuel Sanders same guy who missed rehab to go on networks to talk about me on situation he have zero clue! Arians now wears kangoo hats n glasse but ima diva! Done seen it all then they say we friends stop lien.”
Of course, it’s going to be a situation where what Brady wants Brady gets, but one has to wonder if Arians and company will allow Antonio Brown anywhere near the Buccaneers locker room. This also has sparked some rumors of a possible trade scenario between the LA Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers involving the 2017 3rd round pick, Chris Godwin, and various other participants. Whether or not this rings true, the fact that Brady and Brown are close could indicate that there may just be a change to come in the near future. However, Brown is not yet eligible to return to football following an investigation into sexual assault allegations that came out in September of 2019. The Patriots quickly parted ways with Brown, but not before he and Brady linked up for one game with Brown catching 4 of 8 passes for 56 yards and touchdown.
Brown has admitted that he would like to return to football and that a reunion with Brady could be Possible.
“Absolutely, I’m looking forward to playing next year,” Brown told Complex’s, Zach Frydenlund. ” … Hopefully, the NFL will be making a decision here shortly, and hopefully, I can get back to business and continue to improve.”
When asked if he’s looking to play with Brady next season if the quarterback leaves the Patriots, Brown responded:
“Yeah, I’ll see. I’ll see how it goes. I’m just looking forward and getting the opportunity to be back out there, you know, get a feel inside it, you know, just want to present myself in the right way.”
