Antonio Brown Calls Tom Brady ‘The Greatest Quarterback of All Time’

November 5, 2020 6:40 am

Six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady must really be determined to prove a point to former coach Bill Belichick. Almost immediately after signing for Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a two-year deal, Brady pushed the Glazer family to bring in former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Now, the Buccaneers have managed to tie down controversial NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown on a one-year deal worth a little more than $1 million. But will the former Pittsburgh Steelers man make much of a difference in Florida, or is this going to be the final nail in the coffin for ‘AB’?

Antonio Brown excited ahead of potential Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut

A rejuvenated Antonio Brown appeared in front of the press for the first time as a Tampa Bay Buccaneers player. However, the seven-time Pro Bowler also sported a hat which paid tribute to friend and teammate, Tom Brady.

When asked about Brady’s performance for the Bucs this season, Brown told ESPN, “Tom is my boy. One of the greatest leaders to be around. He’s encouraging, always inspiring. He brings out the best in the people around him. He wants the best for everyone around him.”

“I mean, he’s the greatest quarterback of all time. Nothing he’s done in the past matters. He’s always getting better, day in and day out. I just learn a lot from him. How he trains, how he takes care of himself professionally, his discipline, his work ethic, his approach — he’s been a great guy in my corner and one of my close friends.”

The Buccaneers go up against NFC South rivals, New Orleans Saints, on Sunday. They’ve already been beaten once by Drew Brees and Co. this season, and would not want that to repeat on the weekend.

Coach Bruce Arians might throw Antonio Brown right into the mix as a ‘secret weapon’ against an effective Saints defense. Does the old warhorse still have it in him? Stick around till Sunday and you’ll find out.
