OJ Simpson suffered one of the greatest falls from grace in the history of professional sports. After a stellar career where he won the Heisman Trophy at USC and reached the Pro Football Hall of Fame, The Juice went on to become a beloved broadcaster with NBC Sports. His infamous trial for the murder of his ex-wife and a friend turned things upside-down for OJ.
He was acquitted of the murder but went on to face a litany of other legal issues. He recently was released from his parole after an armed robbery incident in Las Vegas landed him in prison for several years. Since getting out of jail, he has been known to voice his opinions on football via his Twitter account.
OJ recently did just that. His target was former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Antonio Brown. AB was unceremoniously let go by the team after removing his shirt and leaving in the middle of the Bucs victory over the New York Jets. Simpson says Brown’s behavior is inexcusable.
“Playoffs are coming up. And you pull this crap on a guy who really went out on a limb for you? It’s total B.S. Inexcusable.”
It was reported that Brown had refused to enter the game after coach Bruce Arians told him to do so. The temper tantrum is the latest in a long history of poor behavior by Antonio Brown. He was most recently suspended for faking a COVID-19 vaccination card.
Life will go on without Brown for Tom Brady and the Bucs. They currently sit atop the NFC South division at 8-4. They are favorites to win another Super Bowl. If they do, it won’t include any contributions from Antonio Brown.
