Cyril Grayson: Tom Brady Has Set Post-Antonio Brown Tone

January 5th, 2022

It’s over.

Whatever BS spin job you want to believe from whatever media type is claiming to know what happened Sunday, the only facts available are that Antonio Brown ran off the field and out of MetLife stadium like a 5-year-old in need of a timeout, a nap, a juice box and a hug from his soothing granny.

So now what?

Off the field, Bucs officials will do what they can within the rules to screw up Brown’s chance to play football this season. Smart business move.

In the locker room, Tom Brady quickly set the tone, explained receiver Cyril Grayson, who made a visit to SiriusXM NFL Radio this week.

“I think that it’s unfortunate that we had to lose Antonio in the way that we did,” Grayson began. “And I think Tom kind of set the tone perfectly for it [Monday]. ‘We have relationships with him outside of football and so we’re kind of just praying for the best for him and hope that he sees and gets the help that he needs in certain situations as well as for success in the future.’

“So I think as far as [Brown], that’s what we’re talking about now. He’s a good guy to me. He’s always shown me respect and shown me the ropes and stuff like that to. So I appreciate him for the time that I’ve been able to be around him.

“But as far as the team, I think we’ve been sending the same message, ‘It’s the next guy up.’ Our only goal is to win.”

So Brady is saying love, support and respect Antonio all you want, but nothing gets in the way of the team’s process and goals.

Frankly, it’s the only smart message to send. Joe was glad Grayson didn’t start talking about a team meeting to address how Brown was handled. It’s over, and should have been over the minute Brown left the stadium without his team.

Joe can’t wait for the Bucs to win it all and see the Instagram video of Brady presenting Brown with his second Super Bowl ring.

    Let’s hope Grayson turns into a playoff phenomenon with that speed he has just be sure to catch it. We got your back. Bucs Fans.

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    Nice closing sentence image. Hope that happens.

  3. Bucs&Bolts Says:

    Back to the underdogs label I love it LFG

  4. Cobraboy Says:

    Would make an awesome Cinderella story to cap the season.

    An Evans/Godwin/Grayson trio could work well in 2022-23.

  5. D-Rome Says:

    Good article Joe.

  6. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Brown is a headcase but his talent is still there. It’s hard to replace that. This offense right is an unknown until we see the consistency from these other guys. Teams might double evans now.

  7. SlyPirate Says:

    Who do we have on offense …

    WR: Evans, Grayson, Johnson
    TE: Gronk, Brate, OJ(?)
    RB: 4Net, Rojo

    A little thin but plausible if the offensive line plays great.

  8. Rico210 aka wutdaBucisthis Says:

    No doubt the road will be tougher but if TB12 can galvanize this team NOW, it would be epic. We’re gonna have to rely on the defense and they’re banged up. Let’s “run it back” Bucs.
    Imagine IN THE CURRENT on you tube next year. Epic

  9. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Francisco, teams will double Gronk, boy talk about pressure, Grayson’s going to need a box of depends to make it through the PO’s and hopefully SB. Brady has turned a lot of receivers into superstars, let’s hope Grayson has the tools. I think someone mentioned this earlier, the biggest problem is the lack of practuce/familiarity with the two. He did do it with Dion Branch, David Givens, Troy Brown and Ben Watson but their D was killer.

    Cyril Grayson talks too much.
    For a NEVER football player, he should keep his head down, and pray to be one.
    he should not even mention the name Brady, just Sir!

  11. Robert Says:

    AB goes to GB…. they take us out in the playoffs with a TD to AB and AR does his endzone thang.

    thanks BA!

  12. Lamarcus Says:

    Well it is Brady fault AB is here in the first place so he should shoulder the entire blame for the fallout

  13. Lamarcus Says:

    And for Brady…… I am showing no sympathy for Brown. The fake vaccine card is way worse than leaving the field. Could of prevented that by cutting Brown but no… They wanted him!!!

  14. Wild Bill Says:

    AB will not play anywhere this season except with the Bucs. They own his sorry ass this season. A three game unpaid suspension would likely cover the rest of the year. If the Bucs make it to the semi’ s or the SB they could extend the suspension for failure to report, etc. He will possibly get a free agent deal next season from a desperate team unless the NfL bans him like they have done to others.

  15. BBro Says:

    I don’t agree I would took a jab no pun intended at a fake covid card too! They’ll have to pry my cold steel from my hands before they shoot me up with that crap

  16. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Again, for those lagging behind, AB is still on the roster as of right now. Read the 4th paragraph. AB is not going to come back to haunt the Bucs. At least not this year.

  17. DG060 Says:

    NFL needs to ban Brown for life.

  18. captivajim Says:

    Very surprised Grayson would share that in public-VERY..he should focus on his day job–or he woun’t have it long

  19. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I like Grayson. Says all the right things and is very mature. I hope he just keeps getting better and better.

    I still don’t know what all the things Brown did that were so bad beside quitting in the third quarter. The vaccine foofaraw was pretty minor. What else did he do?

  20. stpetebucsfan Says:

    ” Bucs officials will do what they can within the rules to screw up Brown’s chance to play football this season. Smart business move.”

    Yes indeed a smart business move. And in this case also the “right” thing morally.

    AB was given every chance including housing at the star QB’s waterfront home.
    He was given a chance to shine in BA’s high powered offense…and how did he repay those who clearly went to bat for him?

    If the Bucs hose AB $$$ in the process he DESERVES it.

  21. Crickett Baker Says:

    AB is not a good person, it seems. However, what he did to the whole Bucs team and the coaches and the whole culture can never be excused. He is like an abusive husband. He punched the Bucs in the face and gave them a black eye regarding his vax lies when even the coaches thought (at first) he didn’t do it. Then he hits the team with a baseball bat and could have knocked them out, by his actions in the last game. Which is what he would try to do if he was ever allowed on the team again. Imo there is no team that would hire him again this year. It isn’t about things he did in his “personal life”.

    Seek Help.

  23. Jay Bee Says:

    BBro it’s your right to not take the vaccine. But faking a card is totally different and irresponsible and means you have no integrity. If AB didn’t want the vax like Rogers or Cousins they had a protocol to allow that. So it ain’t about that it’s about not being a lying POS.

  24. BillyBucco Says:

    What you guys are missing is that a ton of Bucs players said AB was a totally different dude after the suspension.

    I’m sure the guy was embarrassed to face Brady and Evans and Gronk etc.
    He took the low road and I don’t freaking care what STORY he is spinning.

    BA is one of the easiest PLAYER coaches in the game and had probably heard of his post suspension antics for weeks.

    The whole situation is unprecedented but don’t confuse the FACT this ALL started with AB and him acting like 7th grader.

  25. Doctor Stroud Says:

    So, you guys are saying that AB, who might have CTE, goes to GB and wins with a TD against BA and TB? BS!
