I found out when we got into the locker room after the game, I instantly sent him a text real quick, he texted me back,” Bell dijo, vía Pro Football Talk. “He’s still one of my closest friends. You won’t hear me talking bad about AB at all. Things happen, but he’s one of my closest friends that I’ve been around, close teammates. Overall good person. Obviously some bad decision-making sometimes, but he’s human, he’s not perfect, and we’ll continue to move on without him and keep moving forward.

Bell added he and Brown were still close friends and it’s disappointing he won’t be on the team for the playoff run.

That’s obviously a difficult situation. I think we all want him to … I think everybody should find, Ojalá, do what they can to help him in ways he really needs it. We all love him, we all care about him deeply. We want to see him be at his best and unfortunately it won’t be with our team,” Brady dijo.

We have a lot of friendships that will last. Otra vez, I think that the most important thing about football are the relationships with your friends and your teammates, and they go beyond the field. I think everyone should be very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things.
