Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown and his erratic, offensive behavior is a familiar tune in every NFL fan’s mind. And while most have come to terms with his reckless attitude, there are a few who remember a time when he was a different person. And the change in his attitude genuinely surprises them. One such person is AB’s former teammate from back when he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Michael Vick.

Talking about AB’s attitude in Pittsburgh, Vick says, “AB was a hard worker. He believed in himself, he loved the big man, he was smart understood the system.

Because I know him, and Tom was on the same place at one time. I believe in loyalty, and I believe in true friendships. And I thought they was creating a bond. He [Tom Brady] put him [AB] in a situation where AB was able to get a ring. And he turned his back on him.”
