On Sunday, January 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown stripped off his jersey during the game against the New York Jets and walked off the field during the third quarter. He never returned and multiple outlets are reporting that Brown is no longer a member of the team.
Reports also show that Antonio Brown was on the verge of hitting three different performance bonuses that could have been worth $1 million. AB, however, didn’t seem bothered and instead promoted his new single, ‘Pit Not The Palace.’
Allhiphop.com reported that “Antonio Brown’s new single did not address why he seemingly retired as his teammates were still competing in the third quarter of yesterday’s game. According to ESPN, Brown did not fly home on the Buc’s charter plane.
Brown reportedly asked New York state troopers for a ride to the airport but he was denied. A local driver named Danny Chalet apparently drove Antonio Brown from MetLife Stadium. Chalet posted social media several videos of himself with AB.”
Here’s what Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said during a post-game press conference. The Bucs were still able to pull off a 28-24 victory against the Jets.
Tom Brady also spoke out about his former Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate.
