Antonio Brown’s melodramatic exit from the field Sunday was his last moment as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to coach Bruce Arians.
“He is no longer a Buc,” Arians told reporters. “All right, that’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys who went out there and won the game.”
Brown, 33, was visibly upset on the sideline during the Buccaneers’ Week 17 matchup against the New York Jets. While fellow wide receiver Mike Evans tried to calm Brown down, AB shook off his teammate and then removed his jersey, shoulder pads, shirt, and gloves on his way to the locker room.

At the time of his outburst, Brown had three receptions for 26 yards and the Buccaneers were trailing the Jets, 24-10. Without the receiver, Tampa Bay orchestrated a comeback and won, 28-24.
Brown previously served a three-game suspension for having a faked vaccine card. He has 42 receptions on the year with 545 yards and four touchdowns.
