Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wants to help teach New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady how to catch a football.
“@jhharrison92 tell your guy @tombrady I know he lost his trainer so if he want to get those hands right hmu this offseason! #GrabThat,” Brown wrote.
In the second quarter of Super Bowl 52, the Patriots ran a trick play where Danny Amendola threw a pass to Brady. However, Brady was unable to make the catch. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles then showed Brady how it was done by catching a pass for a touchdown later in the game on a similar play.
While we’re sure Brady appreciates the offer, Brown shouldn’t hold his breath when it comes to getting a call from the five-time Super Bowl champion. Brady has caught two-of-three career targets for 59 yards, a 29.5 yard-per-catch average. While Brown is one of the NFL’s elite pass-catchers, he’s averaging 13.5 yards-per-catch for his career.
Maybe it’s Brady who could teach Brown a thing or two.
And really, doesn’t everyone outside of New England hate Brady and the Patriots? You’d think that’d be especially true of the star receiver on one of the Pats’ biggest rivals year-in and year-out, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Eagles wound up beating Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl, 41-33, denying Tom Terrific his sixth ring. Maybe if Brady had made that catch the Patriots would have won.
