Antonio Brown left MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game against the New York Jets, and threw some of his gear into the stands while giving fans a peace sign before jetting to the tunnel and never returning.
After the game, Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said Brown was “no longer a Buc.” However, as of Wednesday, he still on the roster.
Many people have blasted Brown for his actions, but none of them had a better reaction than aWWE legend.
The Iron Sheik took to social media and called Brown a “Jabroni” f or his actions. In fact, he made it his new middle name.
Brown clearly wasn’t phased by the moment as he showed up to a Brooklyn Nets game the very next day.
While fans and some experts may think his career is over, NFL reporter Josina Anderson tweeted otherwise.
“If Antonio Brown wants a job on another team in the NFL, he can have one. That is not an opinion. That is what I know,” she wrote.
In the days since his outburst on the sidelines, reports indicated that Brown was concerned about his ankle and didn’t want to play. Arians, however, said Brown never told him he was injured and added that the two had a “conversation” and that the player left the field. He refused to dive more into that conversation.
The wide receiver is sure to face some kind of discipline from the NFL due to the outburst and leaving the stadium in the middle of the game against the Jets.
