Antonio Brown’s spur of the moment actions have cost him another job in the NFL. And this time, it will very likely cost him the rest of his career as well.
After a bizarre incident that saw Antonio Brown toss his uniform into the stands before leaving Sunday’s win over the New York Jets in the third quarter, head coach Bruce Arians told reporters that the veteran wide receiver is no longer with the team.
When asked about Antonio Brown’s future with the team during his press conference, Arians told the media, “He is no longer a Buc.”
“That’s the end of the story,” Arians continued. “Let’s talk about the guys who went out there and won the game.”
After his wild outburst that highlighted the NFL’s week 17 action, Brown was actually spotted outside MetLife stadium waiting for somebody to come pick him up. He likely knew he was done with the team, so he was going to need to catch his own ride/flight home.
He wasn’t welcome to fly back to Tampa with the Bucs, according to multiple reports, which comes as absolutely no surprise. Could you imagine how awkward that flight would have been?
Tom Brady, who fought hard to get the Bucs to sign Brown, asked everyone to be “compassionate and empathetic” toward AB after the game.
Brown was in the midst of his second game back from a three-game suspension for violating the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols, after he was accused of obtaining a fake vaccine card. It’s an ugly way to end what has been a rollercoaster of a career for the former Steeler, Patriot and Raider.
