Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Ali Marpet says that Tom Brady essentially bribed his teammates to play better during the quarterback's time with the team.

According to Marpet, the Buccaneers' ability to run a simple screen had gotten so "abysmal" that Brady decided to start offering cash payments in order to motivate everyone to play better. 

"[Brady] took our starting offensive line to the side and he's like, 'Hey, if you guys can get a screen to go for more than 15 yards, I will give you $1,000 cash each. That is for you guys; so every time that we get that, I will be happy to make that payment,'" Marpet said.

According to Marpet, the Buccaneers ran multiple 15-yard screens over the rest of the season.
