Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said during the 2020 season that Brown would be released if he “screws up one time.” This may have been the incident to finally do it.
In the midst of a surprisingly difficult game against the Jets, Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown checked himself out of action in a shocking way.
Late in the third quarter, with the Bucs trailing 24-10, Brown removed his jersey, padding and shirt, threw some of it into the stands, then ran off the field while giving the fans in attendance the peace sign.
It was a wild scene that had many believing this would be the last we’d see of Brown, not only with the Buccaneers, nbut in the NFL in general.
Following the game, Bruce Arians all but confirmed our beliefs by announcing that the team had released Brown.
The 33-year-old Brown recently returned to the Buccaneers after serving a three-game suspension for using a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. He refused to answer questions about the matter last week after the Bucs’ win.
“You guys are all drama,” Brown told the media after last week’s win. “It’s all about football. … It’s a lot of drama you guys create, a lot of drama people create who want stuff from me. That’s a part of life, a part of being in the position. I can’t control what people want from me, what people write about me.”
