Brady, a six-time Super Bowl winner with the New England Patriots, won a record seventh ring on Sunday in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who defeated the Chiefs 31-9 at the Raymond James Stadium for their first Lombardi Trophy since 2003.
"He called me something I won’t repeat but yeah I’ll let all the media throw me under the bus as if I did something or said something to him…" the Chiefs safety wrote in a since deleted tweet, referring to an exchange between the two Americans during the match.
"Go back to my previous games against TB12 I showed him nothing but respect. Look at my interviews about him… I show grace."
The 28-year-old is reported by Pro Football Talk as also having said: "Listen, Tom Brady's a great quarterback. I never really saw that side of Tom Brady, to be honest.
"But whatever. No comment. it's over with. I'm done with it."
