Bucs Release Brown After Drama-Filled Week

Jonathan Grant | January 7th, 2022

Antonio Brown is no longer a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That news was all but certain after the events that took place on Sunday, but it was confirmed on Thursday by the team. The trouble began on Sunday when Brown took his helmet off and left the field in the middle of a game against the New York Jets. We then learned, from Brown, that he alleged that the team were forcing him to try to play with an injured ankle.


Since then, the team has rebutted that argument, stating that they attempted to set him up with appointments and also got no word from Brown in-game that he was too injured to carry on against the Jets. At any rate, the optics of this look very bad for Brown, once one of the leading wide receivers in the league. Head coach Bruce Arians stated that Brown’s main point of contention was that he wasn’t getting the ball enough or being targeted enough. What the whole truth is remains to be seen, but given how Brown has been acting in the last couple of years, this is not a surprise at all and probably the right decision for the defending Super Bowl champions.
