Antonio Brown is no longer with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Bruce Arians. He has not been officially released by the team.
An official move by the team could come Sunday night or Monday. Brown quit on his teammates before the Buccaneers came back to defeat the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Something made Brown upset in the game. Wide receiver Mike Evans and tight end O.J. Howard tried to calm down the disgruntled player.
“I’m not talking about him,” Arians said. “He’s no longer a part of the Bucs.”
Fox Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer is reporting Arians tried to get Brown to go into the game. Then the wide receiver refused to do so.
Then, when Arians tried to get Brown to go back into the game, he refused to do so again. Arians allegedly told him to “get out.”
Brown then snapped. He decided to take off his jersey. He also took off his undershirt and gloves and threw them into the stands.
It was one of the most bizarre moments in sports history.
“Yeah, I did,” Arians said to Glazer about the incident. “Never seen anything like it in all my years.”
The Buccaneers have given Brown chance after chance. Arians said previously that if he screws up once, he would be done.
But the team continued to give him chance after chance. Now, they’re done taking chances with him.
Will anybody else take a flyer on him this season or beyond? Only time will tell.
They would have to know that there are going to be headaches with such a move.
