Chiefs cornerback Tyrann Mathieu tweeted then deleted an accusation that Buccaneers star quarterback Tom Brady said something terrible to him during the Super Bowl.
After the game, Mathieu jumped to Twitter to make some vague accusation that Brady said something really bad to him during one of their tête-à-têtes during the game.
“He called me something I won’t repeat but yeah I’ll let all the media throw me under bus as if I did something of said something to him,” Mathieu tweeted. “Go back to my previous games against TB12 I showed him nothing but respect. Look at my interviews about him, I show grace.”
However, it wasn’t long before Mathieu deleted the tweet.

After all, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback was mic’d up during the game. Yes, Brady was trash talking. But the video indicates that all Brady said was “I’m going at you all game.”

“Listen, Tom Brady’s a great quarterback,” Mathieu said later. “I never really saw that side of Tom Brady, to be honest. But whatever. No comment. It’s over with. I’m done with it.”
What did Brady supposedly say that was so bad? Was Mathieu hinting that Brady said something racial? And why did Mathieu feel he had to delete his tweet so quickly after he posted it?
Perhaps Mathieu deleted his tweet after realizing that Brady was mic’d during the game and if he said anything really bad, it would have been recorded?
