Tom Brady is about business, and Aaron Hernandez didn’t get the message
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has always been a no-nonsense quite of guy, and in an article in the Boston Globe trying to paint a better picture of Aaron Hernandez makes it clear these two guys didn’t always see eye to eye.
Former Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd saw a lot of the interactions between the two including a time at walkthrough when Brady became frustrated the former Florida Gators star.
“(Hernandez) was out at the walkthrough in flip-flops trying to run around,” Lloyd said. “He was laughing. He was loud. And Tom keeps it serious in the walkthrough. And Tom says, ‘Shut the f— up. Get the f— out of here.”
Hernandez never handled criticism well including this instance when Hernandez stormed off,
“It was like he went from this child-like, laughing, disruptive behavior and he storms off in a fit of rage,” Lloyd said.
Hernandez was an unpredictable teammate and it seemed day to day his mood would change. One day he would be trying to fight everyone, and the next day he would be soft-spoken and charismatic. Hernandez did have a lot of respect for his teammates and even questioned if Tom Brady and some of the other guys would come and visit him in jail if he ever ended up there.
“They always say they love me,’’ Hernandez said in the recorded call. “I used to say, ‘If I was ever in jail, would you come visit me?’ They all said, ‘Yeah, this and that,’ but I knew those [expletive] wouldn’t.’’
