One might think so after he completely took off his jersey, pads, and undershirt during the Bucs Week 17 matchup against the Jets. Never has anyone seen antics like this, as if he were putting on a show for everybody. You could see Antonio Brown was extra frustrated on the sideline and Bucs wide receiver Miike Evans trying to calm him down. The two go back and forth but ultimately Brown wasn’t trying to hear it and begin to strip down and parade out onto the opposite end zone throwing up peace signs like he’s Richard Nixon.
We’ve seen this too often with him. From an Instagram live stream in the locker room after a big playoff win to being released by the Patriots within two weeks of his signing. The man has been a head case for a lot of teams.
Love it or hate it, the man’s numbers don’t lie. He has six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons along with six consecutive 100 catch seasons. Three consecutive double-digit touchdowns seasons. Seven-time Pro bowler, Four-time All-Pro.
So far this season, Brown has also shown some unique advantages with his numbers on grass being better than turf. 32 receptions, 456 yards, and four touchdowns on grass compared to just 10 receptions and 89 yards on turf. His first-half stats are considerably better than the second with a combined 29 receptions for 410 yards and four scores. Eight of those catches were plus 20 yards.
The Hall of Fame voters are definitely going to take off-the-field issues into consideration if Brown stands a chance to make it as they did with Terrell Owens. Owens might’ve been his unapologetic self during his time in the NFL but this is next-level drama. Brown is doing intentional things with thinking about the long-term effect. He lucked out when Tom Brady vouched for him last season for the Bucs to make a push, I don’t know if he’ll get any more chances after this stunt.
In my opinion, Antonio Brown should come out for an interview and honestly explain himself and his actions since his departure from the Steelers back in 2019. Talked about what happened with the Raiders and Patriots all the way up to this act.
It’s unfortunate because Antonio Brown was just one game away from getting some serious incentives:
8 more catches to unlock a $333,333 bonus.
He also needed 55 receiving yards to unlock another $333,333 bonus.
He also needed just 1 receiving TD to unlock another $333,333 bonus
