Antonio Brown has been outspoken after leaving NFL franchise the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so who is Alex Guerrero who appears to have been one of the targets for Brown’s ire?
Brown was a wide receiver for the Buccaneers but made headlines when he walked away from the pitch during his team’s win over the New York Jets on Sunday, 2 January.
Brown was sacked for his actions but, in a statement released by his attorney Sean Burstyn on Wednesday and reported by Sky Sports, Brown said he was fired by Bruce Arians after telling the Buccaneers head coach he couldn’t return to the game because of an ankle injury.
Brown has certainly been outspoken about his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and recently claimed, as reported by the BBC, that he was thrown out of the NFL club “like an animal”.
Things kicked up a notch on Thursday morning (6 January) when Brown uploaded screenshots to his Instagram story of an alleged text exchange with Alex Guerrero.
But who is Alex Guerrero? Let’s take a look…
Who is Alex Guerrero?
Alex Guerrero has been Tom Brady’s body coach since 2005 and has been described by the star quarterback as one of his dearest friends.
Alejandro Guerrero was the fourth of six children born to Argentine parents who emigrated to the US. His parents converted to The Church Of Jesus Christ Of The Latter-Day Saints in Argentina, and Alex remains a life-long member.
In a 2020 Q&A on the TB12 Sports, Alex explained his proudest moment career-wise was when Tom Brady won his fifth Super Bowl and fourth Super Bowl MVP.
He said: “There was so much going on that year, and we overcame so much. It was really one of the sweetest moments.”
Alex runs TB12 with Brady and it was the focus of Brady’s book The TB12 Method: How To Achieve A Lifetime Of Sustained Peak Performance.
According to the website, the TB12 method is a “holistic approach to health and wellness, with a focus on performance and recovery”.
