That trend continued during the lead-up to, and fallout from, Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
During last Wednesday’s press conference, Belichick offered high praise of Brady while admitting he would not have enjoyed the success he has if it weren’t for the star quarterback’s presence in New England. Samuel wasn’t buying it.
Take a look:
“A lot of money spent in free agency but it’s still hard for him to put a good team together,” he tweeted Sunday night.
“Honestly… he isn’t good for the players,” Samuel tweeted hours later. “He is known for devaluing athletes.”
All of this still sounds like sour grapes from someone who didn’t get a big contract from the Patriots. He wouldn’t be the first player to harbor such resentment for their former team.
Belichick himself Monday morning fought back against reports regarding his relationships with past and current Patriots.
