Tom Brady helps Antonio Brown get paid during Buccaneers’ blowout of Falcons

Tom Brady is at all times searching for Antonio Brown on the sphere — and searching for him off the sphere.

Brady has performed his finest to maintain the beleaguered wideout in line, together with inviting him to remain on the Brady family throughout Brown’s tenure with the Bucs. On Sunday, Brady’s help for his teammate (and roommate) went a bit bit additional: The Tampa Bay QB accomplished a sequence of passes to Brown late within the staff’s 44-27 blowout of the Falcons that helped Brown earn a hefty bonus.

Brown’s incentive, price $250,000, can be happy by reaching one among three standards: six touchdowns, 650 yards or 45 receptions. Brown entered the day with 34 receptions, 11 wanting his monetary aim. Brady helped Brown get there with seven receptions within the fourth quarter — together with three on the Bucs’ last drive with simply over two minutes remaining.

The primary connection was a fast display; the second and third have been pop passes. Brown completed the day with 11 receptions, 138 yards, two touchdowns and a fatter pockets.

It was an enormous day for Brady, Brown and the Bucs general. Brady grew to become the oldest quarterback (age 43) to throw 40 or extra touchdowns in a season, and he reached a big-time incentive himself, pocketing greater than half one million {dollars} for ending within the prime 5 in passing yards this season. The connection between Brady and Brown has been brewing throughout Brown’s time with the Bucs; Sunday’s matchup was the boiling level. Brady brazenly campaigned for Brown to get a gig in Tampa.

The Buccaneers are playoff-bound (one other contingency in Brown’s bonus) and so they’ll face the winner of the NFC East, which can be decided after the Washington-Philadelphia matchup on “Sunday Night time Soccer.”

With the additional money in hand, possibly Brown can repay Brady for lease, or one thing.
