Former New England Patriots tight end Christian Fauria, who now works for WEEI, says the team has “kicked the tires” on Antonio Brown with internal discussions.

Brown apologized to the Patriots and Robert Kraft this week on social media.

“I didn’t put too much thought into it, but yeah, it’s his choice and good for him,” Tom Brady said Wednesday when asked about Brown’s apology.

Brady is believed to have disagreed with New England's decision to release Brown.

The Patriots are thin at wide receiver.
