Tom Brady Admits He Bears Some Blame for Mike Evans’s Suspension

Sep 20, 2022

On the same day that the NFL levied a one-game suspension on Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, quarterback Tom Brady took to the microphone to admit some accountability for the consequences that followed Sunday’s brouhaha between New Orleans and Tampa Bay.

Speaking on the Let’s Go! podcast that he hosts alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray, Brady took some of the blame for Evans getting into a physical altercation with Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Evans shoved Lattimore after Lattimore got in the face of Brady and Bucs running back Leonard Fournette during Sunday’s contest.

The conflict with Lattimore began when Brady complained after believing the defensive back had committed pass interference against Bucs wideout Scotty Miller. Lattimore and Brady then exchanged words, which led to Evans intervening.
