The odd story of Antonio Brown continues. On Sunday, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took on the New York Jets, Brown sent social media into a frenzy.
In the third quarter, Brown was seen taking off his pads, helmet and undershirt (which he threw into the crowd) before exiting the field and going into the tunnel. What is surprising is that Brown walked across the field and endzone while the game was still being played.
NFL fans stunned at Antonio Brown's antics
Whether or not this incident is the last of his NFL career, after Bruce Arians took a lot of heat for bringing Brown back following hi COVID-19 vaccination card controversy, this is surely the last straw with Buccaneers. Watch the incident below.
It is just the latest in a long list of incidents that have plagued Brown since his Pittsburgh days, and it appears he is still doing "Brown" things. As expected, social media has gone into overdrive as fans reacted to Brown's bizarre actions.
It's not clear exactly what the problem was with Brown, but it has been reported that Bucs receiver Mike Evans was trying to calm Brown down, but it did not work.
The Buccaneers were down two scores against the Jets as they looked to keep their good form going, but Brown clearly didn't care, and it is likely he will not see an NFL field again.
Trouble has found Brown everywhere he has gone. First, it was in Pittsburgh. Then, it was with the Raiders, as Brown wanted to use his type of helmet; however the NFL said he could not. This led to him being fined and then subsequently released by the team.
Brown, then, found his way to New England; however, he only played one game as, again, off-field issues saw him released again. His latest team, the Buccaneers, picked him up, and he was a model citizen as he helped the franchise win the Super Bowl.
At the time of his signing, Bruce Arians stated he was on a "one chance" rule. But then the receiver's fake vaccination card issue came to light, and this forced Arians to go back on his word and state that he brought the veteran receiver back for the best interests of the football team.
This latest incident has to be the last straw, and it is highly unlikely that the troubled receiver will ever see an NFL field again.
