Antonio Brown is on another level the last few days after a video of him exposing his genitalia in a Dubai hotel pool hit the internet. So when AB posted a picture of himself being embraced by Gisele Bündchen, wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, the world was taken aback. Then there was the cryptic caption, “Put That Sh*t On.” Any other time, it would have been deemed a promo for his single of the same name, but when you attach it to a picture of a former teammate’s wife, now it looks suspect.
The image looked like the embrace when the Bucs won Super Bowl LV in 2021 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9. Brown, who tasted defeat in his first Super Bowl appearance as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, was a sweet victory after he had many off-field issues during that season.
However, Brown is being very strategic with the timing of the video. He is very aware, as is the entire world that Tom Brady is going through some difficulties in his marriage. The rumors are loud, and the appearance of a pending separation, based on Brady’s return to the game more than disappointing Gisele, is rampant.
Brown has been pretty antagonistic towards Brady and his trainer, Alex Guerrero, in the wake of his departure from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The two were close, but once Brown left the team and subsequently the league, he’s sneak-dissed or generally bust shots in Brady’s direction. This post is just the latest one.
Now the internet speculates if Brown is trying to insinuate that he has had any relationship with Gisele past this celebratory moment. He understands that the internet is a wasteland of drama and negativity, and carefully timing the release of a picture of him and Tom Brady’s wife right after a video of him exposing his privates went viral keeps him in the daily conversation. It also must be very irritating to both Tom Brady and Gisele when their names are perpetually in people’s mouths.
I’m telling every team that needs some offense to pick up AB bc he’s shown that he still has the ability to expose a D@nfl

Then Brown took it further by posting another phrase that referenced his viral flashing.
“I’m telling every team that needs some offense to pick up AB bc he’s shown that he still has the ability to expose a D.”
Ironically, Robert Griffin III posted a similar message and became caught in the AB matrix of the levels of polarization.
AB showed more D than the Seahawks and Lions did today

“AB showed more D than the Seahawks and Lions did today.”
Immediately, people called Griffin insensitive for what is being framed as Brown sexually harassing a hotel patron in a Dubai pool.
Did Antonio Brown and Gisele Bündchen hook up? Probably not, but Brown is aware enough of his polarization that he plays with the effect his imagery naturally causes. One thing is clear, Antonio Brown wants back into the NFL. If it’s through the cultural ubiquity of his new dance and phrase “Put That Sh*t On,” or leaving way for suspicion of him hooking up with the wife of a celebrity quarterback, AB is trying any way he knows how.
