Antonio Brown’s time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to a shocking end when he had a meltdown on the field during the Bucs-Jets game last year in MetLife Stadium.

Brown shared a screenshot on his Snapchat account Monday that showed a lengthy text message he received from Tom Brady prior to last season.

The message was dated May 10, 2021:

Like many things with Antonio Brown, it is unclear what Brown’s motivation was for sharing the text. The text doesn’t paint Brady in a bad light as Brady comes across someone who’s concerned for Brown and seemed like he wanted to encourage him to surround himself with the right people.
