Antonio Brown certainly had an eventful Week 17 as nobody had a clue he would be playing in his final game for the team and quite possibly his career after his actions on the sidelines.
Before he took the field and caught three passes for 26 yards from Tom Brady, the controversial WR was seen taking selfies, signing autographs, and smiling from ear to ear. He also took some time to sign a COVID vaccine card that was handed to him by a fan in the stands.
As you know, Brown was suspended three games for violating the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols. The league and players’ union found that Brown was among three players who misrepresented their vaccination statuses. The discovery only came up when his former personal chef said that the wide receiver had obtained a fake COVID-19 vaccination card over the summer.
Brown served his suspension, which didn’t mean much since he had already been out due to an ankle injury, and came back to catch 10 passes for 101 yards against the Carolina Panthers.
Against the Jets, however, he had 3 catches and allegedly would not go back in the game because he wasn’t getting the ball, at least that is what Bruce Arians told the media on Thursday.
Arians confirmed that he told Brown he was done and to ‘get the f outta here.’
As we all saw, he began to strip and left.
