While the league suspended Antonio Brown for a phony vaccination card he presented to the Buccaneers and the league, it seems his employer might be thinking of getting rid of him.
According to Mike Florio of NBC’s Pro Football Talk, Tampa Bay is considering cutting Brown for his transgression.
Trusted league insider Ian Rapoport also reported that head coach Bruce Arians was hesitant to confirm AB and Edward’s role with the team after they get off suspension: “Obviously we have two guys suspended. The league did their due diligence and we move on. I will not address those guys for the next three weeks. They’ll just be working out and we’ll address their future at that time. Other than that, there’s really nothing to say.”
Brown and Bucs safety receiver Mike Edwards falsely reported that they were vaccinated and presented fake vaccine cards as proof. AB’s former personal chef outed him, and the NFL soon launched an investigation.
It remains to be seen if any team would even pick him up this year, considering he has been injured for much of the season.
