In a tweet Wednesday, Brady defended his comments about the league’s handling of domestic violence allegations.
“The NFLPA’s statement is inaccurate and defamatory.
We do not condone domestic violence,” Brady tweeted.
“It is unfair and untrue that NFL players are expected to cover up their names in public.”
A league spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been vocal about the issues of domestic abuse and concussions in recent years.
“We want to protect the integrity of the game, and the players are part of that,” he told the Boston Globe in January.
“I’m not saying we’re not going to address it in some way.
But we’ve seen how it has been handled in the past, and I think the message is clear: We need to address this in a much more proactive manner.”
NFL players have been criticized in recent months for failing to protect players from domestic violence.
The league has also faced calls to address the issue of players kneeling during the national anthem.
