Why did the Buccaneers let go of Antonio Brown?

While he is not retired, he is not currently playing in the NFL and a lot of it has to do with what went down in his last game with the Buccaneers. Midway through the game against the Jets, Antonio Brown left the pitch in peculiar fashion.

Stripping out of his game gear, he exited the pitch waving goodbye to onlookers. Brown had had reportedly refused to enter the game as he was nursing an injury. Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians, though, insisted that he take the field. And once push came to shove, the wide receiver promptly walked away in dramatic fashion.

The former NFL superstar claimed that the Buccaneers and head coach Arians were involved in a cover-up. According to Brown, an MRI report showed that he had injuries to his ankle bone along with ligament tears, which made it painful for him to play.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers soon after the game released a statement on January 6, 2022 citing his official release from the franchise.

Antonio Brown’s Fantasy Performance

Antonio Brown was one of the finest wide receivers of this generation and he even helped the Buccaneers win a Super Bowl in 2021. His unpleasant departures from each of his former NFL teams might be one of the reasons why no successful NFL franchise wants to sign him. His 12 year long NFL career has seen him record seven 1000 yards-plus seasons. With 7 Pro-Bowl honors he is also part of the 2010s NFL All-Decade team.

Brown has always been a strong fantasy pick, however, in the 2022 season it is better to steer clear of picking him. The former wideout will not feature in the 2022 NFL season and fantasy football fans should look at other wide receiver options.
