Tyrann Mathieu has levied a heavy accusation against Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
During the Super Bowl win for the Bucs, the seven-time champion QB and the star DB for the Chiefs got into a heated verbal altercation. Now, Mathieu is claiming Brady said something so bad that he can’t even repeat it. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to TMZ, Mathieu tweeted after the altercation, “He called me something I won’t repeat but yeah I’ll let all the media throw me under the bus as if I did something or said something to him. Go back to my previous games against TB12 I showed him nothing but respect. Look at my interviews about him … I show grace.”
The tweet has since been deleted.

You can 100% paint me skeptical that Brady said anything so bad that it can’t be repeated. Number one, it’s damn near a certainty that Brady was mic’d up the entire game.
There’s no way if he was wearing a mic that it didn’t pick up anything he might have said. So, if something did happen, we’d know about it.
There are also other people on the field wearing mics as well and the broadcast cameras can pick up audio. We’re really supposed to believe that something heinous was said but not a single mic grabbed it? I find that borderline impossible to believe given the level of technology we’re talking about.

Also, why delete the tweet if it’s true? Why delete the allegation? If it happened, then stand by it and defend it.
After the game, he didn’t seem fired up at all!
Eventually, the audio from the game is going to get looked at, and we’re going to get down to the exact bottom of what was said. If Mathieu is lying or exaggerating, then he should be ashamed of himself.
