Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was reportedly excused from practice by head coach Todd Bowles for a personal matter. The star quarterback is expected to return at some point after the team’s next preseason game against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

Brady’s absence from the team has stirred up a ton of controversy towards the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, and a former teammate made his opinion on the matter very clear.

Former Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown took to social media on Wednesday morning to discuss how he viewed Brady’s absence, basically saying that Brady is receiving special treatment that other players wouldn’t get.

“Tom Brady manipulate the game gets 14 days go home get his mind right lol. Now you see the difference, put that sh*t on.”

Brown has been very candid in the past about his relationship with the Buccaneers organization after the ugly divorce between the two sides, calling out the organization by saying he was “cut” and didn’t quit on the team.

This time Brady was caught in Brown’s crossfire, which many around the NFL world see as a stab in the back to Brady after he constantly stuck up for Brown and even allowed him to live in his house while he was on the Buccaneers.

Hopefully, Brown’s one rap career will be successful, because it seems very plausible that he may have taken his last snap on an NFL field.
