Following the Season ending ACL Injury for Bucs WR Chris Godwin, recievers like Mike Evans and Antonio Brown were expected to step up following Bucs super bowl aspirations. However, today in a game vs the New York Jets reciever Antonio Brown out of nowhere took his top off midgame and left to the locker room.
Thankfully, the Bucs still managed to pull a late game Victory but the NFL World wasn’t shocked by this behavior of Antonio Brown as he has a history is these on court and off court shenanigans with all the organizations he has been with. The Pittsburgh Steelers had one of the best offenses of the 2010s with Ben Roethlisberger, JuJu Smith Schuster and LeVeon Bell but it didn’t ended as expected Brown missed Week 17 Practice with the Steelers which made Coach Tomlin to eventually bench him during the Season Finale. This made the franchise best WR in history to have a spot on the Trade Block.
This whole drama lead to AB getting traded to the Oakland Raiders where he didn’t play a SINGLE snap and eventually got cut because of his off-court issues. He got signed to the New England Patriots where again he didn’t play a single game or snap.
This season Brown got signed by the Reigning Super Bowl champs, the Tom Brady led Tampa Bay Bucs. He was ecpected to have a diminshed role of a WR3 behind Godwin and Evans. Brown showed that his abilities were never the problem by having an amazing season untill he ex-chef came out and dropped some shocking news about Brown faking his Covid Vaccine card. This would eventually make the NFL fine Brown and sidline him for 3 games
Now, today in Week 17, Brown had an argument with his teammates and Headcoach. He took his top and pads off and left the game topless, he was booed by some Bucs fans in the attendance. After the comeback win, in an interview Head Coach Bruce Arians was asked about Brown and Arians response was “He is no longer a Buc”
