Asante Samuel appears to have a theory as to why Tom Brady left the New England patriots after 20 years, he was simply tired of playing for Bill Belichick.
“He probably just got tired of it,” Samuel told TMZ Sports. “He probably got tired of some inner-circle things that he wanted. Maybe he wanted receivers and tight ends to stay there with him, and maybe Bill tried to trade them. Who knows what happened?”
Not exactly groundbreaking news as many reports pointed to tension between Brady and Belichick at several points over the last few years.
“He probably just got fed up with it at the end of the day,” the former New England cornerback says.
Samuel played with Brady and Belichick from 2003 to 2007, and although they were widely successful, he didn’t have that much fun.
“It worked out for me, man. It made me a better man, but it’s not something I enjoyed,” Samuel says.
Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians is widely regarded as one of the best players coaches in football and clearly has more than one mood from a personality standpoint as opposed to Belichick who appears to be upset about something at every moment of the day.
