Tom Brady and Antonio Brown's connection on the field is clear to everyone. They hit it off immediately during the troubled wide receiver's brief stint with the Patriots and picked up right where they left off in Tampa.
The quarterback and receiver have a strong connection off of the field too. Brady spoke very highly of AB, saying the star pass catcher has become like a brother to him.
From NBC Sports:
"AB's become like a brother to me," Brady said. "Just to watch him, what's happened over the course of his life the last 18 months, and to see kind of where he was at and where he's at now, makes me so happy for him. He's done the work. He's put the work in. We're all challenged in different ways on and off the field. Sometimes football comes really easy but the successes of football become a little more challenging to deal with. He's really done an amazing job in his own life getting back to what the real purpose of it is.
"He loves playing football. He's a football genius. It's hard to explain to people -- and I'm someone who's been around some amazing players -- it's hard to explain to others the way he sees the game versus everybody else. He's truly one of a kind person, talent, and I've obviously admired him so much for what he did in Pittsburgh in his time there. He's really come to Tampa, he's been focused completely on football and being a great teammate. All the guys really embraced him and really encouraged him at different moments. He's proven to everybody what he's still capable of. He's just an amazing player, obviously everyone gets to see that. I get to see it every day in practice, which is something that's great for me. Just really happy for him, happy for his family, and I know he's got a lot of great years left."
It's good to see that AB is back on the right track, he's one hell of a football player. Sure his meltdowns were fun to watch, but we can wait for his career to be over for those to resume.
