“Naw I’m ok,” Bryant tweeted. “I rather go somewhere I can show case my skills for real.. if I line up next to Gronk hogan Edelman I’m for sure getting a 1 on 1 match up plus I won’t be getting criticized controlled for expressing my love for the game..Washington is cool as well.”

New England Patriots legendary quarterback Tom Brady is addressing talk from critics who say that the 41-year old future Hall of Famer is suffering his eventual decline this season, following his terrible performance in the loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

During that game, Brady completed a season-low 51 percent of his passes for 254 yards and no touchdowns and provided another bump in what has been a rocky overall performance from Brady this season.

“Everything is different from one year to the next,” Brady said, according to Westwood One’s Jim Gray.

“I think you keep working at it the same way. Those things haven’t changed for me. I’m sure some of my statistics have changed. But I feel good out there. And I feel like do I want to play better? I absolutely want to play better. I want to play best as I possibly can for my team, and that’s what my job is to do. Certainly, yesterday was not a great performance. I got to go out there and play my very best these next six weeks to give our team the best chance. And that’s what I want to do.”
