Antonio Brown is seemingly revealing why he decided to leave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the middle of their comeback against the New York Jets.
In the middle of the third quarter against the Jets, Brown became enraged and was spotted taking off his gear and throwing some of his belongings into the stands. He then cut across the end zone and gave fans the peace sign before he ran back to the tunnel and eventually out of MetLife Stadium.
Brown posted a photo to his Instagram story with the caption of “I knew the game was still going I left cause I’m super gremlin.”
“Super Gremlin” refers to a song by rapper Kodak Black.
Brown also posted a link to his new rap song, “Pit Not the Palace,” after he left the game.
He finished the game with three catches for 26 yards.
Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians told reporters after the game that he was done with the organization.
“He is no longer a Buc. Alright, that’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys that went out there and won the game,” Arians said.
It was the Bucs who took a chance on him in the middle of the 2020 season after he was suspended for eight games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He kept his nose out of trouble and helped the team win a Super Bowl.
He was suspended for three games earlier this season because he submitted a fake coronavirus vaccination card and likely only survived as the team dealt with so many injuries on offense.
The outburst could cost Brown over $1 million after missing out on incentives for hitting certain milestones this season.
