Antonio Brown… Many of you have heard about the outrageous acts he’s put on in the past couple of years, yet this one is by far the most shocking. Antonio Brown  has made a villain origin story since 2018. He was a Steeler for many, many years, and it didn’t look like he’d ever been a bad player. That was until he got traded. He got traded to the raiders three seasons ago. He then claimed he had frostbite and didn’t practice for weeks. Brown wasn’t a player, to begin with, and was always struck as an arrogant player. Brown started complaining about the helmets issued to the Raiders organization and would be a so-called “cry baby,” as many fans of the Raiders had called him.

Brown did not last long with the Raiders as he got cut early into his introduction to the team. He then would just stay home with his kids and go to the pool. All the media could see was him at the house as his various Instagram stories. NFL G.O.A.T. and future hall of famer, Tom Brady, was always in support of  Antonio Brown despite his actions  and got Patriots coach Bill Belichick to sign him as a free agent. The Patriots had a dominant year, like always and Brown also played with the Patriots and started against the Dolphins. He had a touchdown and it looked like we had our old Antonio brown back. That was until he left the Patriots and was absolutely gone. Nobody heard of him for the rest of the season. All of Antonio Brown’s bridges were finally burned.

It was a long time we heard of AB until the 2020-2021 season he signed a contract with the Bucs. The media was shocked as they did not expect such a forgotten player to join back into the league. He was just as good as he was six years ago. Antonio won a super bowl with theBucs that year and it finally looked like he was on top. 

Antonio Brown has 0 signs of mental health problems says his attorney who represented him, but the acts that he put on are unacceptable. He was facing ankle problems and was in the chances of undergoing surgery for his ankle and he was questionable for his game against the Jets. He texted Bucs coach Bruice Arians saying he isn’t at full speed the day before the game and Bruice said that they would need Brown for the game against the Jets. He was undergoing ankle pain during the game and he wasn’t complaining to Bruice Arians on the sideline about his ankle and Bruice Arians told him he was done for the day. Antonio Brown took off his jersey, pads, and undershirt and was shirtless and threw his pads into the stands as he started running off of the field, of course only after doing jumping jacks one the end zone at MetLife stadium. He ran into the Locker room afterwards and after the game Arians told the media that Antonio Brown was no longer a Buccaneer. Antonio Brown stayed in New York for the next days or so and was seen courtside at Brooklyn nets games and he didn’t have access to the team plane to get home to Tampa. Antonio Brown has made stupid mistakes time and time again and always got another chance but the question now is will he get yet another chance?
