In the latest webisode of “In the Current,” a behind-the-scenes look at the Buccaneers produced by the Buccaneers, Brady roasted Tennessee Titans head coach and former New England Patriots teammate Mike Vrabel during joint practices last month.
“Mike’s kind of an a–hole if you get to know him,” Brady said with a straight face. “He went to Ohio State. Obviously I don’t like him.”
The two were teammates in New England for eight seasons and are still close friends.
“There’s a healthy competition between us even though he’s fat and out of shape now. Physically, he’s declined to a really sad state,” Brady said.
Vrabel joked when the teams huddled up, “I know you guys are moving forward, but it’s good to see another defense carry Brady to another Super Bowl.”
It’s clear Brady’s remarks were payback from this tweet Vrabel sent out during those practices, where he referred to himself as Brady’s son Jack’s “favorite former Patriot.”

Brady also had this to say about Vrabel during joint practices: “I think he’s toned down a little bit in his old age, Brady said. “He’s not as rambunctious as he used to be. He was much more chattery as a player. He complained a lot when I didn’t throw him the ball, like a typical diva receiver. He’s mellowed out as a coach a little bit.”
