Antonio Brown, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ WR, has always been in the news for various reasons. Whether due to his exceptional plays on the field or unwanted actions off the field, the WR has been a constant name in the media.

Last season, during the game against the New York Jets, he stormed off the field. It came after a verbal altercation with his head coach Bruce Arians. Later, Antonio was cut from the team.
