Antonio Brown left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dramatically after leaving his team in Sunday’s comeback win over the New York Jets.
The controversial wide receiver, who played a role in the Bucs’ Super Bowl win last season, took off his helmet, jersey and pads and ran down the tunnel when his team was behind at MetLife Stadium in the third quarter.
The circumstances of the matter weren’t clear, but head coach Bruce Arians said after the Buccaneers rallied to win at 28:24 that Brown was no longer part of his plans.
“He’s no longer a Buc,” he said in an interview reported on nfl.com. “That’s the end of the story.”
Brown, a seven-time pro bowler, had only returned to work last weekend after suffering a knee injury and a three-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Covid-19 protocols.
Quarterback Tom Brady led the Buccaneers’ comeback 24-17 in the fourth quarter, claiming the win 15 seconds to go when he hit Cyril Grayson with a 33-yard touchdown pass. The win improved her record at the top of NFC South to 12-4.
