When Brown was stuck at 42 catches late in the team’s meaningless game against the Falcons on Sunday, Brady made sure to get his wide receiver the ball. In the final two minutes, Brady threw three shovel passes to Brown so that he could collect his $250k bonus.
Tom Brady completing three shovel passes to Antonio Brown in the final two minutes today gave him 11 catches on the day and 45 on the season, earning him a quarter-million bonus.
