Antonio Brown was finally officially released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
On Sunday, Tampa coach Bruce Arians said the wide receiver, who was in a difficult situation, was no longer a member of the team. It has been several days since Brown was released, but this will happen today, confirmed in a statement from the booksellers.
“Antonio was treated for an ankle injury a week before Sunday’s game, but our medical team allowed him to play before the game and did not show it during the game. He was told that he could not play, ”the report said.
“We tried to schedule an assessment by an external orthopedic specialist several times during the week, but Antonio didn’t follow through. The health and well-being of our players is paramount to our organization.
Brown, in the middle of the Bucs ’game against the Jets, took off his uniform, pillows, and shirt and continued to jump in the last zone as he walked into the locker room.
Since then, he has appeared in court at the Brooklyn Nets game and then hosted a party with rapper Fabolous.
On Wednesday, Brown accused the Arians and Buccaneers of mishandling an ankle injury.
“I gave up direct pressure from my coach for my loyalty to the game [Bruce Arians] to play without injury, ”Brown said in a statement through his attorney, Sean Burstin. and I gave it all for my team. “
He said the pain had become too “extreme” for him to return to the field, but he was still ordered by the Arians.
“I sat aside and my coach came up to me and was very upset and said,‘ What happened to you? What’s wrong with you?’ “I told him, ‘This is my ankle,'” Brown said in a statement. “But he knew it. It was well documented and we discussed it.
Brown then leaked tentative texts between Arians and himself, in which Arians told him he would not rest for the playoffs and that Brown could not get to full speed.
Earlier this week, NFL reporter Josina Anderson said her report could find another job in the league if Brown still wants to play football.
