Antonio Brown Throws Shades At Ex-HC Bruce Arians After He Was Issued a Warning For His Actions on The Sidelines

There was lots of drama in the Saints and Buccaneers game, leading to a scuffle.

The scuffle started with an exchange of words between Tom Brady and Marshon Lattimore, which then led to Mike Evans knocking Lattimore to the ground. That earned him a one-game suspension for Week 3, which he appealed but lost.

On the sidelines, former Bucs head coach and now consultant Bruce Arians made a scene when Lattimore wasn’t called for pass interference which kind of started things, and he has now been given a warning for his actions.

After seeing the news, former Bucs WR Antonio reacted to the news by throwing shots at Arians using emojis and a separate tweet saying he’d comply.

Still no love loss between the two.

BRYANT GUMBEL: According to the team– you didn’t say anything to either Coach Bruce Arians or the team’s medical personnel– on– during the game or on the sidelines on January 2nd. True or false?


SEAN BURSTYN: We actually, Bryant, have documentary and contemporaneous evidence that Antonio did tell Bruce Arians that his ankle was hurt on the sideline. Because the general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers interviewed Bruce Arians the Sunday night shortly after the game and texted our camp the notes from that interview, which state that Bruce Arians told the GM that Antonio complained on the sideline about his ankle injury. So there’s no question. I think both sides, at least privately, are in agreement that Antonio’s ankle was injured and he directly told the team about that.

BRYANT GUMBEL: Arians says, that when he told you to go in the game you said nothing about pain or injury. True?

ANTONIO BROWN: Untrue. Man, I told him my ankle. And he said, “What?” He said, “Get the fuck outta here, you’re done.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: He said you said, quote, “I ain’t playing. I ain’t gettin’ the ball.” Is that a lie?

ANTONIO BROWN: No, no. That’s a lie.

BRYANT GUMBEL: Flat out lie.

ANTONIO BROWN: Flat out lie.

BRYANT GUMBEL: Prior to the game on January 2nd, the game against the New York Jets– at the Meadowlands– were you given shots of Toradol?

ANTONIO BROWN: Absolutely. Right before the game I was given Toradol.

SEAN BURSTYN: We actually have, Bryant, in the medical records that we’ve reviewed, evidence that the team regularly injected Antonio with Toradol. So he couldn’t feel the damage that he was doing to his ankle until it got to that threshold point where he told his coach, “Coach, I can’t play because of my ankle.” And the coach’s response to that was, “Get the eff off the field.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: Okay, so– so the Bucs shot you with Toradol in the week before– before the Carolina game, correct?

ANTONIO BROWN: Absolutely.

BRYANT GUMBEL: They shot you again before the Jets game, correct?

ANTONIO BROWN: Absolutely.

BRYANT GUMBEL: And Arians claims that at halftime then you were upset about not getting ball– more balls thrown your way. True or false? Is he lying?

ANTONIO BROWN: False. it’s not worryin’ about the ball. Tom Brady is my guy. He’s the reason I’m on Tampa Bay, so I know I’m gonna get the ball.

ANTONIO BROWN: Yeah, these guys at Tampa Bay Bucs tried to make an agreement with me to give me $200,000 to go to the crazy house so these guys could look like they know what they’re talking about.

BRYANT GUMBEL: They offered you $200,000 for what?

SEAN BURSTYN: The off– the offer was Antonio would basically sit on the sidelines, go on some list– and commit himself to some form of intensive mental health treatment. And we were specifically told, in writing, by the general manager, twice, “Don’t spin this any other way.”
