                            Tom Brady says he has a 'lot of personal feelings' about Antonio Brown's New England Patriots exit following rape allegations

National Football League (NFL) star Tom Brady reportedly declined to comment publicly about Antonio Brown.

However, he admitted that he has a "lot of personal feelings" about the New England Patriots' decision to release the wide receiver.

Brown, a 31-year-old NFL player, is facing allegations in a federal lawsuit that he sexually assaulted his trainer Britney Taylor twice in 2017 and then raped her in May 2018.

The trainer's suit was filed nearly three days after Brown signed a $15 million contract with the New England Patriots for a year. The Patriots, however, released Brown from the team last week. The NFL is currently investigating the allegations.

Brady, while appearing on WEEI's 'Greg Hill Morning Show' on Monday, said: "I do have a lot of personal feelings, none of which I want to share. It is a difficult situation. That is how I feel."

Brady and Brown had reportedly developed a bond in the wideout's short time in New England. Brady even offered to have Brown stay in his house after he got acclimated to being a Patriot.

After the Patriots' decision to remove him, Brown expressed his frustration over a series of tweets as the decision could also lead to potential loss of guaranteed money. 

"Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore. These owners can cancel deals, do whatever they want at anytime. We will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable. Sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months. Will see if they pay up!" he tweeted.

The news comes less than a week after Nike dropped Brown amid sexual assault allegations against him. A spokesperson for Nike, in a statement to the Boston Globe, reportedly said that Brown does not have a shoe deal with the athletic giant anymore. "Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete," the spokesperson said on Wednesday night last week. When asked for a specific reason, the representative declined to comment on it or the timing of the move.
