  • Damien is Tom Brady.

  • Is he going to be responsible for Antonio Brown success or failure with the Bucks?

  • No, I don't think he's going to be responsible for his successful his failures.

  • I think that Listen, Tom.

  • Tom Brady definitely advocated for Antonio Brown being with Tampa Bay.

  • You remember Bruce Arians was a God same guy that said that the Antonio Brown He didn't see Antonio Brown being in this organization.

  • So there's no question who advocated for for Antonio Brown being with the team.

  • We know that Antonio Brown is currently living with Tom Brady, so we know that the one aspect of Antonio Brown that everyone has been worried about is off the field.

  • Well, guess what?

  • He's gonna be on the same route as Tom Brady.

  • But I think when it comes on the field, I think Antonio Brown is gonna feel a level.

  • Fill a level of being indebted to Tom Brady for, uh, you know, you know, constantly reaching out throughout the off season when he wasn't with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • And this is a guy that's going to play with a chip on his shoulder.

  • Um, you know, listen, last time We saw Antonio Brown playing meaningful football.

  • He was the best receiving the National Football League and there was no question about that.

  • So I think you're gonna see Ah, hungry guy that's coming in and I don't I don't I don't foresee Antonio Brown being a major, you know, a major headache or or anything transpiring all off the field because I think he sees what the opportunities are with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Tom Brady, and that's a team that's gonna be competing for Super Bowl Championship.

  • When you when you look at it, uh, you look at Antonio Brown and much like Damon's saying I want to concentrate on the football field because everything that transpired off the field, we already know.

  • We know those issues.

  • We know he's in court, he's dealing with it with his legal team and they'll figure it out and the responsibility.

  • It relies on the organization as a whole to keep him out of those issues off the field, and he's gonna be productive on the field.

  • There's no question about it.

  • You look at him with the Miami Dolphins.

  • When he was in the New England Patriots, they played the Miami Dolphins.

  • Tom Brady, Bill Belichick.

  • Josh McDaniels put an emphasis on making sure that Miami knew that he was on the football field.

  • I don't see where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't going to do the same thing.

  • Byron Leftwich is going to make sure, and Tom Brady is going to make sure that if he's playing 20 to 25 to 30 plays, that when he's on that football field, those plays count.

  • He's doing something.

  • He's just not standing out there like a cardboard cutout.

  • In all of a sudden, he's not paying attention of what's going on around him.

  • He can lose interest by doing that.

  • So you wanna make sure that he is an intricate part of what you're doing on an offensive side of the ball, because they certainly can utilize him and need him down the stretch with Chris.

  • Guy went in and out of lineup Mike Evans being your big play wide receiver in the red zone, Gronkowski being that big play.

  • Why receiving the Red zone and Scotty Miller doing what he does and you add, you add a baby to the mix.

  • A guy who is clearly was on a path as a Hall of Fame type wide receiver prior to something's happening in in Oakland and getting his career somewhat derailed.

  • Now this back on track, if you go back and you look at Pittsburgh.

  • When Bruce Arians had him in Pittsburgh, Bruce didn't coaching on the offensive side of the ball.

  • He was primarily a special teams player.

  • He didn't become a really viable receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers and to Todd Haley took over.

  • But Bruce knows him enough and knows the people in the Pittsburgh organization toe understand who Antonio Brown is.

  • And I think Antonio realizes the mistakes that he's made, and he can't cost himself and do those things anymore.

  • He will be completely out of the NFL this time around.

  • Two things.

  • Number one.

  • How weird was it to see Bruce Arians about his can go on that completely threw me seeing that whole thing talking about Antonio Brown.

  • Number one number two.

  • I don't know.

  • What's a better selling job.

  • Tom Brady convincing Bruce Arians that Antonio Brown's to join this football team are selling Mrs Tom Brady at Antonio Brown is gonna be a board in the Brady household, so Tom Brady's got that kind of stroke to make that work.

  • I think he's complete response with a be successful failure because Tom Brady has let it be known we have the kind of football team right now that we can go get it.

  • In the NFC, we got a bunch of filthy McNasty is on defense, led by David and also Devon White, their outstanding linebackers.

  • But now we need to relieve some pressure on Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski and as well as Tom Brady, you bring in Antonio Brown.

  • I don't know what his pitch count is going to be, but it's gonna be sufficient enough that the Saints are going to have to honor him when he's on that football field.

  • And Keyshawn, you're exactly right.

  • We know exactly what's gone on in the past with Antonio Brown.

  • That doesn't mean that that's not going to be a storyline that people are going to watch, especially in the locker room of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • You could have Tom Brady speak up for you.

  • You can have Russell Wilson speak up for in Seattle the same thing.

  • Lamar Jackson, Baltimore speaking of Antonio Brown, but until you actually around that guy in the locker room?

  • There's always gonna be kind of okay.

  • We know he can play, but will he go off the rails and will he derail what we're trying to do here in Tampa Bay?

  • And Antonio Brown clearly understands this is his last shot to stay in the National Football League.

  • His town has allowed to get another chance to be in the National Football League.

  • But if he runs afoul of himself again, then he's not gonna get that opportunity.

  • Tom Brady was willing to risk that knowing kind of talent he brings to the table to make this a better football team, aim or explosive offense to help him and also that running game.

  • So whether this works or not, it's going to be a defeat of Tom Brady because he convinced his coach and his team he's worth that risk despite the past.

  • And he also convinced his wife, Hey, it's okay, honey, to have in the in laws House because he's gonna be a good tenant with us as he plays with us for Tampa Bay.

  • Here's what I would say about all that.

  • I think Tom Brady understands he stayed with Tom Brady for a short period of time in New England, so inviting him into the home.

  • I think that they got that covered.

  • I think the house is big enough where they're gonna be able to get their separation and get away from one another at times.

  • But when you talk about on the field or in the locker room, players know what they got in the locker room.

  • They understand they get it.

  • They've trained with him.

  • They've been around.

  • He's from the Florida area.

  • They work out together in the offseason, so they understand who Antonio Brown is.

  • They understand what makes him tick.

  • They understand what will make him mad at the same time.

  • So when you bring people inside of a locker room, guys that there there have been around him, whether it's in New England, whether it's in Pittsburgh, whether it was in college were just working out, so they have a clear understanding who he is.

  • I never worry about bringing in an outside guy into a locker room even though we're winning football games because he can't derail us from doing anything.

  • He is on a game.

  • The game basis.

  • The moment that he gets out of line, The first thing we decided to do as a team is move on without him.

  • You saw the New England Patriots do it.

  • They were ready to embrace him.

  • They did embrace him.

  • But the moment that the allegations hit, they said Bye bye.
