While Antonio Brown and Tom Brady once enjoyed a close relationship, their relationship has appeared fractured for some time. 

Most recently, Brown shared a screenshot of a private text conversation dated May 10, 2021, which appears to be between himself and Brady on Snapchat, where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback criticized Brown.

“You are demonstrating very poor decisions and poor communication to so many people who have gone above and beyond to help you,” Brady seemingly wrote. “You are acting selfish and unfortunately many of those people are exhausted by the erratic and unpredictable emotional behavior. When I met you, you were humble, willing to learn and anxious to improve things in your life. In a short period of time, you have done those things and accomplished some great things. And very much on the path to success long term. Unfortunately you have reverted very much back to a young immature man that is selfish, self serving, irrational and irresponsible.”

Guessing @AB84 posted this with hopes of making @TomBrady look bad but all it does is prove AB is a fool. Brady shouldn’t waste his time.

Brady continued, “I for one, am disappointed in many behaviors over the past few months. You have seemed to have lost that humility and that APG. You have gone from hanging around good quality people that had genuine interest in seeing you succeed, to seeing others whose lives are erratic and out of control and leading you down a negative path.”

Brady originally brought Brown to the New England Patriots, and then to the Buccaneers in 2020. The duo won a Super Bowl together in 2021. However, Brown later quit the team during a game last season and hasn’t returned to the NFL. 

Since then, Brown has taken numerous jabs at Brady online, and showcased even more troubling behavior off the field.
