Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown recently had some high praise for his quarterback Tom Brady.

Brown, who previously played with Brady on the Patriots, will make his debut with the Bucs this Sunday, and his relationship with Brady sounds great going into the game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Brown said the following about Brady during a Wednesday session with the media, according to NBC Sports:

One of the greatest leaders to be around. He’s encouraging, always inspiring. He brings out the best of the people around him. He wants the best for everyone around him. He’s the greatest quarterback of all time. He’s always getting better day in and day out. I just learn a lot from him. How he trains, how he takes care of himself professionally, his discipline, his work ethic, his approach. He’s been a great guy in my corner and one of my close friends.

I’ve been very open about the fact that I think Brown has no business being back in the NFL, and I think it was a huge mistake for the Bucs to sign him.

However, putting him around a guy like Tom Brady might be his only shot at success in the league again.

Brown needs serious structure, leadership and he needs somebody to keep him in line with the rest of the organization.

If Tom Brady isn’t capable of getting it done, then nobody probably is. Luckily for the Bucs, it sounds like things are off to a hot start.

We’ll have to see how Brown does this Sunday night against the Saints. I have no doubt that Brady is happy to have him out there running routes.
