It doesn’t sound like you’re ever going to hear Tom Brady tear into Antonio Brown for his pathetic actions.

During the Buccaneers/Jets game this past Sunday, the talented but troubled receiver stormed off the field, threw some of his gear in the stands and there’s a high chance he never plays in the NFL again. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Despite his insanely immature behavior, Brady doesn’t want to kick a guy while he’s done and he thinks surrounding AB with support is the best option on the table.

Brady said the following on the “Let’s Go,” according to BroBible:

I think the best thing is to have a support system, even outside of football, because again, yeah, we are football players, we’re athletes, we give everything we can on the field, but we also have off field lives too and I’m going to continue to do everything I can to try to be a great friend and supportive to Antonio and the things he’s going through…Antonio is a great player and extremely talented player and we all want the best for him, we really do. I think there’s a very supportive group of teammates and coaches, and it’s just a very difficult situation for everybody. I don’t think there’s a great way to sum anything up other than to say that he has a lot of supportive teammates. And I’m certainly one of them. I love him, and I’m always here for him.

As I said when Brady first broke his silence Sunday, his response has been very mature, measured and respectable.

If my teammate just quit on me and dipped out, I can promise you that my reaction would be very different. Yet, Brady isn’t trying to push the dagger deeper.

Clearly, he thinks Brown needs some help and wants to see him get it.

Let’s also not forget that Brady seemingly went out of his way to get AB on the Bucs and this is how he repaid him. He quit on him in the middle of a game!

The fact Brady is keeping his cool is incredibly impressive.

We’ll see if Brady dives into it anymore, but those expecting him to bury AB might be waiting a very long time.
