Say what you will about Antonio Brown, but he knows how to make headlines. Even though for the wrong reasons, Brown knows how to give the audience a show. The Week 17 bout started like any other hard-hitting NFL game. In the first quarter, both the teams had at least one touchdown under their name. 

 

Deep into the third quarter, the Buccaneers were down with a score of 10-24. It seems to have triggered something in the wide receiver. Brown took off his jersey and shoulder pads. He ran on the field while players of both teams were still there.

Antonio took off his shirt and gloves and tossed those to the crowd. Tom Brady and the Bucs were looking on and wondering what was going on. Antonio Brown then ran across the field and walked off after throwing a peace sign up to the crowd.  

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers reformulated their game plan. They performed like a completely different team. With under 20 seconds left, Brady threw a touchdown pass to Cyril Grayson and won the game.  

Has Tom Brady forgiven Brown?

After winning the match, Tom Brady appeared for the post-game press conference. During the conference, the reporters asked Brady about the incident. He said, “We all love him, we care about him deeply.”

 Brady continues, “We want to see him be at his best, and unfortunately, it won’t be with our team. We have a lot of friendships that will last, and again I think the most important thing about football are the relationships with your friends and your teammates, and they go beyond the field.”

Brady is still keeping his cool about the incident. After the words of the HC Bruce Arians, it is clear that we will not see Brown in a Buccaneers shirt again. Maybe that is what the wide receiver wanted all along.
