Antonio Brown is back and wants respect put on his name. Brown was suspended after misrepresenting his COVID-19 vaccination status earlier in the season. Ahead of Week 13, the NFL handed down three-game suspensions to Brown, Bucs cornerback Mike Edwards and free agent cornerback John Franklin III as all three accepted their suspension at that time.
After the news that the Bucs would indeed bring him back on the team and not cut him, he took to Twitter and demanded that respect be put on his name.
“Put some RESPECT on my name ! All of YALL !!!!”
Brown also fired off a tweet in response to Pro Football Talk bringing up his fake vaccine card, saying, “Ima post my Cov 19 Vaccination Video ! Just for U! You need some business so here you go after this focus on the NFL not Himmothy !”
The seven-time Pro Bowler has recorded 418 yards and four touchdowns on 28 receptions in five games this season but has not played since suffering an ankle injury in mid-October.
His one-year contract with the Bucs includes a $333,333 incentive when he hits five receiving touchdowns, and he currently stands at four.
Brown is now eligible to suit up for Tampa Bay’s Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
