Antonio Brown had one of the most interesting careers of any star in the 2010s. Despite being one of the most talented wide receivers of the generation, he would end up having his career cut short due to him being a loose cannon at times. However, since his retirement from the NFL, Brown has taken the opportunity to explain the rationale behind most of his seemingly outlandish decisions.
Recently, he appeared on Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s podcast. During the conversation, Brown dove into his reasoning for leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He would play two seasons with the team, racking up 1028 yards and 8 touchdowns on 87 catches. However, he would decide to go shirtless and storm off the field in what would be the final game of his NFL career.
Recounting the moment and what led up to it, Brown was quoted as saying, “Tom Brady called me like “Yo, this week man, the Jets man, they sweet man imma hit you with like 10 to 12 targets. So he gonna gas me up so you know me, that’s all I need to hear like yo, you gonna throw me the ball, this is like me saying I got a new crib as you know me, you know what I’m saying. You don’t want to throw me the ball and you making me like I’m crazy so, I was like, “I’m crazy f**k all you motherf**kers, I’m out of here”.
Previously, Brown had stated his reasoning for leaving the team was a result of their medical staff forcing him to suit up against the Jets despite him being injured. Whether his rationale for jumping ship was a result of issues with Brady or the Buccaneers’ staff, it is a shame that this event had to happen as it signified the end of a career from one of the most talented wide receivers of a generation.
