In Case You Missed It: Tom Brady Paid Practice Players for InterceptionsSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

On Tuesday morning a report came out that Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s frustration with the teams 1-3 start has now boiled down to him taking out his anger on the practice squad members.

The following is from an article published by Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post and Houston Chronicle:

“On Saturday during practice, Tannehill, after a couple of practice squad players forced turnovers, Tannehill made negative comments toward them, including saying: “Enjoy your practice squad paycheck, enjoy your practice squad trophy.” Sources say this has been going on for the past few weeks as the practice squad players have been intercepting Tannehill and frustrating the former Texas A&M wide receiver turned quarterback. Philbin told the practice squad players to take it easy on Tannehill to not affect the young quarterback’s confidence.”

Former New England Patriots wide reciever Donte’ Stallworth took note of the controversial remarks by Tannehill and revealed over Twitter that his former quarterback Tom Brady did just the opposite and created paid incentives to help practice squad and “look team” guys if they were able to intercept his passes in practice.
