Tom Brady, Antonio Brown Agree To Team Up In 2020
Tom Brady and Antonio Brown reportedly agreed to team up in 2020.
It is no secret that Brady grew extremely fond of Brown in the short amount of time the pair spent together with the New England Patriots last year.
In Brown, the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer saw his first real offensive threat since tight end Rob Gronkowski retired. Although their union lasted for a mere one outing, a bond was formed.
Recently, ESPN NFL insider Dan Graziano and ESPN NFL analyst Jeremy Fowler reported that Brady and Brown have stayed in “constant contact.”
According to the same report, Brown has apparently told Brown that he wants to see the pair play together in 2020.
“Two people close to Antonio Brown — yes, that Antonio Brown — told us Brady keeps in consistent contact with Brown and has told Brown he wants to play with him wherever Brady goes next,” the report said.
“According to one of Brown’s attorneys, Brady has told Brown to keep mentally and physically strong so the two can reunite on the field at Brady’s next stop.
“Anything concerning Brown should be taken with not a grain but a bucket of salt at this point, but it does seem as if Brady and Brown formed at least some level of connection in their incredibly brief time together in New England.”
Brady and Brown were seemingly on track to form one of the NFL’s more formidable duos last year when the latter was suddenly accused of sexual assault by a former trainer.
The Patriots abruptly cut Brown shortly thereafter, and he has been out of the league ever since that point.
Prevailing wisdom is that at some point Brown will be allowed to return to the NFL, but at this stage it is unclear who would actually sign him.
