A day after he made a very public exit from the field, more details are coming out about what exactly happened that caused Antonio Brown to take off his jersey and leave the field midway during the Buccaneers game on Sunday.
He immediately became the villain but now that it has been reported that he was injured but told to go back in the game twice but wouldn’t, and then they told him he was no longer part of the team. That is the reason he left the field.
Now, he’s just doing whatever he wants. Even giving positive messages to Steelers fans about Ben Roethlisberger.
AB posted a video on the possibility of Ben playing his last game in Pittsburgh on Monday and thinks Ben will be playing next season. He talks about how much of a competitor Ben is and how great of a QB he is.
Antonio Brown seems to be in good spirits for someone whose career is in limbo.
An NFL Network report said that Brown was upset because he didn’t feel he could continue playing on his ankle, which he injured in Week 6, forcing him to miss five games along with three additional games because of his league-imposed suspension for producing a fake COVID-19 vaccination card.
“I don’t know that he was [injured],” Arians said.
Did he say that he was injured? “No,” Arians said.
“It’s pretty obvious what happened. He left the field and that was it,” Arians said. “We had a conversation, and he left the field.”
The Bucs did not officially release him on Monday, and there are ongoing discussions with the NFL about how to move ahead with the situation, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Could there be a reunion in the making?
The answer to that is no.
