Former Pats WR: Brady paid practice squad guys for interceptions

Unlike Ryan Tannehill, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady rewards teammates who get the best of him during practice.

Shortly after Joe Philbin was fired on Monday, a report from National Football Post indicated that tension has been brewing at Miami Dolphins practice for weeks over Tannehill’s alleged treatment of practice squad players. The former Texas A&M star apparently said things like “enjoy your practice squad paycheck” when he became frustrated after teammates forced turnovers, and Philbin had to tell the practice squad guys to take it easy on Tannehill.

If you ask Donte’ Stallworth, stuff like that is what separates Brady from Tannehill.

Stallworth played for the Patriots during their record-breaking season in 2007. Earlier this offseason, he made a bold prediction about what his former team is going to do to the rest of the NFL in 2015.

No one should ever compare Brady to Tannehill, but the fact that the Dolphins have their quarterback supposedly acting like that and their highest-paid player making childish protests shows you the type of trouble the organization is currently in.
