The moment was very embarrassing for the Bucs. They are on their way to hopefully winning the Super Bowl again this year. But after the antics of Brown, some players have come out and addressed the situation publicly. Tom Brady during the post-match interview said that Brown is a good friend, and he hopes the WR gets some help soon.

Bruce Arians have straight-up declared that Brown is no longer a part of the Buccaneers. But one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers players had something different to say. Le’Veon Bell, the newest addition to the squad, commented on Brown’s Instagram post. He wrote, “(goat emoji) Idc what anyone says.” Is Le’Veon Bell trying to follow Tom Brady’s advice and support Antonio Brown? Football is a team sport, but will it work if it is one-sided? Should Antonio Brown have left the Bucs and the team the way he did?
