Antonio Brown appears to be done with football, and for real this time.
Brown last played an NFL game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17 of the 2021 season. After a disagreement with coaches, Brown took off his jersey and left the Bucs’ road game against the New York Jets. Brown was subsequently released from his contract.
The controversial wide receiver formed ML Football that his playing career is over. Brown used the word “Legacy” as his statement.

According to a report from TMZ Sports, Brown will now focus on his new career as part owner of the Arena Football League’s Albany Empire club:
“TMZ Sports is told AB is 100% committed to his new position with the team … and will be as hands-on as his schedule allows.”
Brown was a seven-time Pro Bowler who won a Super Bowl 55 ring with the Buccaneers in the 2020 season. But his career accomplishments are largely overshadowed by the many legal troubles and controversies off the field.
Britney Taylor, one of Brown’s former trainers, accused him of sexually assaulting on three occasions. The two subsequently reached a settlement.
Brown was also arrested for attacking a truck driver outside of the former’s home in Florida in Jan. 2020. Brown was ordered to pay the victim $1.2 million, sentenced to two years probation and ordered to perform community service while also attending counseling.
Late in the 2021 season, the NFL suspended Brown three games for using a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. A month later, he walked out of the Bucs-Jets contest mid-game in what would be a rather fitting end to his controversial career.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
