With the latest rumors of Antonio Brown coming out today, the big question was asked to Tom Brady on his weekly Westwood One Radio appearance Thursday. Former Patriots tight end Christian Fauria, reported earlier that the Patriots have “kicked the tires” on re-signing Antonio Brown.
Brady, who has maintained a relationship with AB through social media said he does not take part in those decisions.
“I don’t think those decisions, honestly, are up to me,” Brady said “They are not up to me when we cut players or sign players. I think the people in the personnel department decide those things. My job is to play quarterback, and that is what I’m trying to do as well as I possibly can.”
Brady has seemed frustrated with the offense and you know deep down Tom would absolutely love to have Brown’s talent available to him. The real question is if Robert Kraft will be willing to forgive and forget. The bottom line is Brady is still playing to win championships and there is an opportunity to give him an elite talent. Robert Kraft needs to thing long and hard about this because he sets himself up as the scapegoat if the Patriots offense sputters in the playoffs without Brown.
