Mathieu tweeted after the game that Brady called him “something I won’t repeat.”
“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… go back to my previous games against TB12 I showed him nothing but respect. Look at my interviews about him… I show grace,” he wrote.
Mathieu deleted the tweet, but not before it was screenshotted. Barstool Sports pointed it out after the game.
The defensive back told reporters after the game he saw a different side of Brady.
