Antonio Brown blamed his infamous mid-game outburst as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on an injured ankle. The team’s medical staff and coaches claim that Brown’s self-diagnosed injury isn’t something he ever told them about. Brown walked off the field in the middle of a game and was subsequently cut by the Bucs and has not played since.
Brown has since aligned himself with Kanye West. Ye named AB the president of Donda Sports, an organization which has thus far done nothing but buy an expensive suite at Super Bowl LVI and tweet about trying to buy the Denver Broncos. Brown recently said he is open to an NFL comeback, though.
AB claims he needs surgery to repair his injured ankle. TMZ Sports spoke to the wideout who said he would only do so if an NFL team showed interest. Brown spent most of the interview ranting about how he believes the Bucs mistreated him. Antonio also won’t commit to fixing the ankle unless a team give him a commitment.
“I need to get my ankle fixed, but I just want to make sure I got an obligation or a commitment from a team. It’s a lot for a guy to go do surgery without an idea of where you gonna work, or who you going to work for.”
It is unlikely that a team is going to sign an injured player until he has the surgery, and they can see how he is recovering. This seems like more rhetoric to protect Brown’s forever-slipping reputation. Time will tell if any teams show interest.
Antonio Brown said he would love to continue his NFL career. If he is injured and refusing to address it, most teams will take a pass. If the ankle wasn’t enough, they’d also have to deal with his constant shenanigans and now, an affiliation with an unstable musician.
