Antonio Brown just may have a serious grips with the way the Tampa Bay Bucs handled his ankle injury, but not many are taking it seriously, because of his past antics.
That right there is a serious problem, according to Robert Griffin III.
Taking to Twitter, Griffin said that he’s seen a lot of differing opinions on what led to Brown’s actions on Sunday, but thinks that the message of being forced to play hurt is being lost because of who Brown is.
“A lot of people have opinions on Antonio Brown. His Mental State. His infamous exit from the field. His complaints about good customer service. But his message of being forced to play hurt or else is being lost because of who the messenger is,” Griffin wrote.
It took a few days, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released Antonio Brown on Thursday following his decision to leave in the middle of their comeback win over the New York Jets over the weekend. The Buccaneers released a statement confirming the wide receiver’s release and pushed back on Brown’s claims he tried to tell Buccaneers staff he was too injured to play.
“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the contract of Antonio Brown, effective immediately. While Antonio did receive treatment on his ankle and was listed on the injury report the week leading up to last Sunday’s game, he was cleared to play by our medical team prior to the start of the game and at no point during the game did he indicate to our medical personnel that he could not play. We have attempted, multiple times throughout this week, to schedule an evaluation by an outside orthopedic specialist, yet Antonio has not complied. Maintaining the health and wellness of our players is of the utmost importance to our organization,” the team said.
In since released video, Brown was seen on the sideline taking off his gear and throwing items into the stands before he ran across the end zone and into the tunnel, effectively ending his career with the Bucs and his 2021 season.
In the aftermath, Brown had released a new hip-hop single, thanked the Bucs, seen at a Brooklyn Nets game, expose Tom Brady’s trainer and Bruce Arians.
Not to mention, he got exposed by an Onlyfans model.
