Arians responded to a report claiming he and Brady had a bad relationship and that the head coach “undermined” the game plans of Brady and offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich.

“Looks like there’s one [story] every day now,” Arians told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “Everyone is speculating he’s going somewhere else. That does not bother me. These other bulls -, the relationship, it’s so far-fetched.”

Arians disputed the claims and told the outlet that he didn’t even rehabilitate his Achilles injury in the morning, reports Larry Brown Sports. The head coach said he found the “red pen” part of the report amusing.

“I’ve never heard of that one,” laughed Arians. “That was the best ever. It’s pretty graphic not knowing what (expletive) you’re talking about.”
