"I think that is such a poor characterization," Brady said. "In 18 years, I have never celebrated when someone has been traded, been cut. I would say that is disappointing to hear that someone would express that, or a writer would express that because it is so far from what my beliefs are about my teammates and I think I am very empathetic about other people's experiences. I know those situations aren't easy.
"I have never been traded or released, but I can imagine how that might feel. I would never feel that way when Jimmy got traded, or Jacoby [Brissett] got traded. I have kept in touch with all those guys. When Matt Cassel was gone -- all these guys I've worked with. I feel like I have had such great relationships with all the quarterbacks I have worked with. I have kept in touch with basically everybody. To characterize that as a certain way is just completely wrong."
