Quote

he Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released seven-time NFL Pro Bowler Antonio Brown following Sunday's incident in which Brown dramatically walked off the field mid-game against the New York Jets.

 

On Wednesday, Brown released a statement through his attorney, saying the Buccaneers knew he was dealing with an ankle injury -- which the team previously has denied. Brown alleged that he was "fired on the sideline for having a painful injury" and says he "relented to pressure directly from my coach to play injured."
 
On Thursday, the Buccaneers admitted knowing the wide receiver had recently dealt with an ankle injury but disputed Brown's claim of pressuring the wide receiver to play.
"The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the contract of Antonio Brown, effective immediately," a Thursday statement read.
 
"While Antonio did receive treatment on his ankle and was listed on the injury report the week leading up to last Sunday's game, he was cleared to play by our medical team prior to the start of the game and at no point during the game did he indicate to our medical personnel that he could not play.
"We have attempted, multiple times throughout this week, to schedule an evaluation by an outside orthopedic specialist, yet Antonio has not complied. Maintaining the health and wellness of our players is of the utmost importance to our organization."

He posted a couple of texts between him and Arians to somehow prove that Arians knew about his injury. But the last message from Arians said see me. It really did not prove AB’s point at all. He and his attorney refused to send the results of his appointment in New York to team doctors, and he also refused to see team doctors or even NFL doctors.

Is he still seeing the same French podiatrist?  IYKYK. 😂

The initial story from AB about being injured had some support…..but since then, he tried showing the texts between him and Arians, and has spoken out about Brady and trashing him, along with Gronkowski, and the full receiving group of the Bucs. What is apparent is the guy does need help. Arians did an interview a couple days ago explaining what happened. Dan Patrick played it on his radio show. What AB is doing now adds credibility to Arians’ version.
