Antonio Brown is continuing to antagonize Tom Brady on social media, this time, by releasing a purported text message from his now-former Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate dating back to May of 2021.

‘You are demonstrating very poor decision and poor communication to so many people who have gone above and beyond to help you,’ began the message, which Brown shared on Snapchat.

The name at the top of the message reads ‘TOM BRADY’ and the text appears to have been sent at May 10, 2021 at 12:58pm.

If the text message is genuine, it’s unclear what Brady was referring to at the time.

It’s true, the seven-time Super Bowl winner had encouraged the Bucs to acquire the embattled Brown in 2020 amid accusations of sexual assault and harassment, which he has since settled out of court. He even allowed Brown to stay with him in preparation for the season.

A year earlier, Brady had pushed for the New England Patriots to sign Brown, only to have the team cut him after one game when the sexual misconduct allegation first surfaced.

But in May of 2021, Brown had not yet run afoul of the Buccaneers. The two were still teammates coming of a Super Bowl victory and Brown was seven months away from his famously bizarre exit , when he removed his jersey and stormed off the MetLife Stadium field during a game against the New York Jets. He would be released days later.

Brown was criticized for palling around with rapper 6ix9ine in the days before Brady’s purported text message. The two had appeared on social media competing for passes in the end zone.

Ultimately, though, Brown did not provided any context for Brady’s lengthy text message.

‘You are acting selfish and unfortunately many of those people are exhausted by the erratic and unpredictable emotional behavior,’ Brady continued. ‘When I met you, you were humble, willing to learn and anxious to improve things in tour life. In a short period of time, you have done those things and accomplished some great things. And very much on the path to success long term.

‘Unfortunately you have reverted very much back to the immature man that is selfish, self serving, irrational and irresponsible. I for one, am disappointed in many behaviors over the past few months. You have seemed to have lost that humility and that APG,’ Brady added, perhaps referring to the phrase ‘all praise God.’

‘You have gone from hanging around good quality people that had genuine interest in seeing you succeed, to seeing others whose lives are erratic and out of control and leading you down a negative path.’

Brown’s post immediately sparked speculation about his reasoning. 

The social media manager for Boson-area sports radio show, Toucher and Rich, suggested that the former Patriots quarterback comes off looking like a good guy in the exchange. 

‘So is Antonio Brown attempting to make Tom Brady look like the bad guy here?’ read the tweet from Toucher and Rich. ‘Because he comes across as a damn good friend here…’

More recently, Brown has been attacking Brady on social media over his divorce from model Gisele Bundchen.

Brown has frequently posted doctored photos, playfully suggesting that he’s having a romantic relationship with Brady’s ex.
