As if Tom Brady needs anything to help him get motivated for a game….
Cowboys rookie defensive tackle Osa Odghizuwa, a third-round pick in April’s draft, decided he was going to poke the bear when he was asked about Brady’s weakness as a player.
Instead of saying nothing at all, he took the bait and gave the opposing team bulletin board material.
“He’s not very mobile,” Odighizuwa said, via Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I mean, you know, he’s been playing for 21 years. The dude is a little older, not too mobile. I’d say that’s probably what it is.”
Odighizuwa tried his best to even out his comments by calling Brady the “GOAT” and downplayed the notion of giving Brady motivation.
“I feel like he’s not a guy who’s too worried about what I’m saying,” Odighizuwa said. “He’s obviously going to be aware of it, but he’s been doing this for awhile. People have been saying this, that and a third. He’s been doing his thing.”
The Cowboys and Buccaneers kick off on Thursday, Sept. 9.
