TB is heading to TB, but will it be with AB?

Listen to your team news NOW.

It doesn't seem likely.

After it was revealed Tom Brady is headed to Tampa Bay, reports said the quarterback wanted to bring Antonio Brown with him, but that does not appear to be happening.

"There's definitely some sense that Tom Brady would want to bring Antonio Brown with him," NFL Media's Rapoport said on Thursday. "This from some of the other teams that were potentially in the mix. What really wasn't a secret Brady and AB have remained close. My understanding is this is not something that Bruce Arians is in favor of. He's had Antonio Brown before. He had him a couple of years in Pittsburgh. Does not sound like it went well. This does not seem to be like the direction that the Bucs would be going."

Arians has previously called Brown out for being a "diva" and then there's also the legal troubles of late, as well as the NFL's investigation into him stemming from being accused of sexual misconduct and sexual assault by two different woman.

Brown played one game with Brady and the Patriots before he was released last September.

Brady hasn't officially agreed to a deal with Tampa, but reportedly received a physical in New York City Thursday, so it is getting close.
