NFL fans have a lot of questions about Antonio Brown and his future with the league. However, rape allegations didn’t stop him from participating in practices with the New England Patriots.
In Thursday’s workout, Brown switched numbers and worked with Tom Brady. During one drill, Brown received a pass in the end zone from TB12 while being defended by Troy Brown.
We don’t know if Brown will take part in the Patriots’ game in Miami. But we do know that head coach Bill Belichick wants him prepared.
TB12 doesn’t like to talk about his new teammate. He shared some general remarks, but that’s all.
“Just like a lot of new players, trying to get up to speed and so forth,” Brady said. “There’s a lot to learn. Coming into this time of year, I’d say is challenging. But that’s just the situation. It happens a lot throughout the NFL. Different players change teams and so forth. That’s happened over the years, so just trying to do the best we can do.”
It’s interesting to know that Brady was really supportive prior to the accusations Brown faced.
“You don’t judge anything,” Brady told Jim Gray last week. “I’m not judging anything before I have a chance to go out and practice and prepare. You know, Antonio, meeting him today I really enjoyed being around him, he’s a very smart football player, knows how to play the game. He’s been extremely productive.
“The only thing that I know what we can do is to go out there and work at it to meet and to communicate and get on the practice field and go through things. I’m not buying into any hype or potential. I’m into work. He’s into work and our entire offense is into doing what’s in the best interest for the team and I’m really excited to get to practice on Wednesday.”
The star quarterback is ready for his work with the troubled wide receiver. They will work really hard to get ready for a title.
“Yeah, you know we’re going to meet as much as we possibly can,” Brady said. “I think that quarterback-receiver relationship is so important. The more you know each other the more you know what each other’s thinking, the faster you can accelerate the trust and confidence in one another when you get on the field.”
