Feel free to speculate exactly why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waited until Thursday afternoon to make this decision, but now it’s final, they have released Antonio Brown.

After Brown he refused to attend Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, him caused a scene at the exit from the field, after, second to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, who was told to leave by Buccaneers manager Bruce Arians. After the Buccaneers 28-24 fourth quarter comeback victory, Ariani was asked about Brown and replied that the wide receiver “was no longer a Buc”. However, Brown remained on the roster and was listed on Wednesday as a non-practitioner due to an uninjured personal problem.

The Buccaneers released their statement on Brown’s release on Thursday just after 12:15 PM EST, in direct response to Brown’s claims that the team forced him to play with an ankle injury.

Brown already had Released to declaration on her via her agent Wednesday about how Ariani said “You’re done”, while making a throat-cut gesture, when he told his coach that on Sunday he could not enter the field. Also in the statement, Brown said an MRI on Monday revealed significant damage to the ankle and that the Buccaneers were still asking. sees a doctor of their choice. Earlier today, Brown shared on Twitter and alleged text exchange had the Friday before the buccaneers Game of the week 17 with Aryans, inform your coach on a still injured ankle. Aryans denied Monday that Brown had informed him of an injury.

In the HoleYes statement, they said that while Brown was listed on the injury report in the week leading up to the game against the Jets – his game state was questionable starting Friday – he didn’t tell anyone he was too injured to play on match day.

This official release also comes after Brown posted a text exchange on his Instagram story he had with Tom Brady’s coach and business partner Alex Guerrero. Brown tags Brady in the story, accusing Guerrero of not working and taking $ 100,000. Allegedly, Brown was alone on the Buccaneers (even after all the controversy and legal issues of the past few years) because Brady wanted him on the team.

The best way to describe this situation with Brown, is the best way to describe it: Messy. Nothing can ever be done cleanly with him. The NFLPA is actually looking into a potential cover-up by the Buccaneers regarding his alleged ankle injury, but union president George Atallah said USA Today Sports that Brown hasn’t contacted the union yet and they don’t have many details yet.

I’m not going to take the Buccaneers’ word on what happened Sunday just because it’s on the company’s letterhead. Their interest is to bring the players onto the pitch. This is a business, not Pop Warner.

But to the skepticism I have about how the Buccaneers have handled this situation, I have at least the exact same amount for Brown. The only consistent thing about him is erratic behavior. Sunday is tearing up the blocks, Thursday calling the main person in his corner on social media, and in December he gets suspended for using a fake vaccination card when his personal chef tells him because Brown has this bad habit of not paying the people he hiring.

In a situation where no one deserves the benefit of the doubt, I guess doubt is the only correct decision. And you know what, now that I walk away from this and see what the whole NFL situation is like – player accused of misconduct towards women and other rumors is signed by a team vying for a Super Bowl and a team that handles a player injury in a questionable way: doubt for everyone is the right decision.
