Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown’s epic meltdown continues with the disgruntled player hitting the media circuit to air his grievances in one of the ugliest NFL divorces in years, and now he’s taking cheap shots at Tom Brady.

The mercurial Brown wore out his welcome with his fourth NFL employer when, during last Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, he shucked his uniform in the third quarter following a spat with head coach Bruce Arians and bolted from the field shirtless, flashing peace-out signs to the crowd at MetLife Stadium, quitting on his teammates and possibly burning the final bridge in what has been a tumultuous career.

Brown appeared on the latest edition of the “Full Send Podcast” where he discussed his acrimonious split with a team that was badly burned after giving him a chance and threw shade at the legendary quarterback who befriended AB when he was still with the New England Patriots and was instrumental in luring him to Tampa.

When the conversation turned to the G.O.A.T, Brown incredibly suggested that the friendship wasn’t rooted in sincere reasons and that Brady needed him to win, a statement that ignores the accomplishments of the future Hall Of Famer during his historic 20-year run with the Patriots where he led the team to a record six Super Bowl titles.

“To me, a friend is someone who’s got your back,” Brown said, “not everybody in sports is going to be your friend. Tom Brady’s my friend why? Because I’m a good football player. He needs me to play football.”

“People have different meanings of what friendship is,” he added.

AB’s dissing of Brady was tweeted out by ESPN’s Kimberly Martin, who highlighted the quitter’s bitter comments.

Despite Brady’s initial remarks that were supportive of his friend after the bare-chested receiver stormed off the field, Brown has spent the entire week trashing Arians and the Bucs with his own account of what led to the ugly temper tantrum that could bring an end to his career.

Twitter users reacted to Brown’s trashing of Brady.

Brown also whined about money during the podcast, throwing shade at superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski who won three Super Bowl rings with the Patriots then followed Brady to Florida to add another one to his trophy case.

Brown’s conduct over the last week only serves to reinforce the perception that he is a selfish guy and a problem child and eventually, the attention will fade while his rude treatment of Brady despite all that he did to save his career will be a lasting mark on his sad legacy.

It’s hard to see any other team being willing to risk tampering with team chemistry by bringing a chronic malcontent into their locker room so his MetLife Stadium end zone dance may have been his NFL finale.
