Tom Brady takes the high road in response to Earl Thomas' harsh tweet

BY Cameron DaSilva • January 16, 2017

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas endured the toughest season of his career. He missed his first NFL game ever due to a hamstring injury, only to suffer a season-ending broken leg in his first game back.

The Seahawks were then bounced from the playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons, which Thomas was forced to watch from the outside looking in. After the loss, and following the Patriots’ Saturday win against the Texans, Thomas sent a tweet saying Tom Brady has the easiest path to the Super Bowl.

He also said this a few minutes later:

Well, on Monday, Brady responded to Thomas’ comments in the exact way you’d expect him to. He was asked whether he enjoys getting under other players’ skin, to which he said this:

"No, I don't think I've ever been one to, you know, say something negative about anybody. It's just not my personality," Brady said on WEEI's "Kirk and Callahan" show. "I love Earl. I think he's a helluva player. I really wish him the best in his recovery."
