Antonio Brown must be “held accountable for his actions” and there should be consequences for his repeated misbehavior, says former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf.

Antonio Brown rushed off the field midway through the third quarter of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 28-24 over the New York Jets on Sunday, the latest in a long string of rumors that have plagued Brown’s career in the NFL.

Brown has yet to be officially released from the team, though manager Bruce Arians said the 33-year-old receiver “is no longer a Buc” after the embarrassing incident.

Leaf, who has experienced his troubles on and off the pitch after being picked as # 2 overall by the Chargers in 1998, says only Brown can correct his behavior once he begins to take responsibility for his actions.

“It’s hard to see,” Leaf said Inside the embrace (Sky Sports NFL, Tuesday, 9pm). “We have seen this game over the last few years with him.

“Tom Brady really took him under his wing – in New England, and now in Tampa Bay – although … [Brown] he continued to act, to behave badly. Bruce Arians was also very supportive.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady believes “everyone should be very compassionate” to Antonio Brown after his controversial mid-game exit.

“It must have been really hard for the whole team to look at things this way because as we heard about Brady after the fact, they take care of him and want the best for him.

“But, as someone who has been enabled throughout his tenure in the NFL, there comes a point where you have to hold someone accountable for their actions.

“There must be consequences. And that was the biggest problem in all of this; there have been coaches and players who have continued to allow that behavior.

“He’s not being defined as a quality human being right now. There has to be a change and a change in personality or behavior.

“Someone has to show them a mirror. This could be that opportunity. And since then, it depends on the individual: you can’t force anyone to get the help they need. Let’s hope Antonio finds that space.”

Bruce Arians, head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, wished Antonio Brown well, despite the controversial departure of the wide receiver against the New York Jets.

Former NFL offensive lineman Brian Baldinger, also appeared on Inside the embrace, believes that this latest mistake will be difficult for Brown to recover from, despite his still undisputed talent.

“It’s hard to believe it can surpass what we all saw on Sunday,” Baldinger said.

“The talent is still there. He was the most dominant receiver for Tampa in their 8-0 on the way to a Super Bowl title last year.

“Some teams could reach out, but it’s hard to believe after Sunday’s crash.”
