Tony Dungy stated on NBC’s “Football Night in America” show that teams should be done with him already.
“I’ve said this in the past. I feel sorry for Antonio Brown. He’s talented but he needs help. The NFL … we’re not doing him any favors if we keep signing him and keep rewarding this behavior. Don’t sign him until he gets some help,” Dungy said.
Brown exited the field after a disagreement with Buccaneers coaches and removed his equipment. He then threw his undershirt and gloves into the stands before running shirtless to the Bucs locker room. He crossed the field and stood in the end-zone pumping up the Jets crowd before giving a peace sign.
He would later write on Instagram, “Thanks for the opportunity.”
Dungy echoed similar sentiments when Brown was released by the Raiders just a few years ago.
“I feel sorry for Antonio Brown,” Dungy wrote in a tweet on Sept. 7, 2019. “He’s been blessed with amazing talent but he’s lost track of the fact that football is a team game. So is life. He thinks he’s the victim but he’s missing out on the real joy that comes from being part of a team. He’ll be the big loser in the end!”
Dungy resurfaced that tweet in the wake of Brown’s latest incident.
For now, it’s hard to imagine Brown signing anywhere. There is just one more week left in the regular season and no playoff team is going to bring in that major distraction right now.
He has played in just 15 games during the last three seasons with the Raiders, Patriots and Buccaneers and has had a terrible exit from each squad.
