Antonio Brown: Bruce Arians and Tom Brady resolved the release of WR after mid-game events

Read Time:3 Minute, 33 Second

Shortly after the wide receiver stated in a statement that he would have to undergo surgery for an ankle injury, the team released Brown on Thursday, which he claimed prevented him from playing against the Jets.

Although Brown said he “cannot play football on that ankle,” Arians told the media on Thursday that he “never been told” of the injury when explaining what happened in the third quarter of Sunday’s game.

“Just to let you know something about what happened: in that game, he never asked the coach or doctor about his ankle,” Arians said at a press conference.

“This is a normal agreement. You have to pass the agreement during the game. I have never been notified. Obviously, when we look for him to return to the game, it is disturbing. Who does he treat at halftime? Be the goal, calm down, and the players will take care of this.

Bruce Arians before the game between the New York Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“It started on the sidelines again. We called up the personnel team he played throughout the game. He refused to participate in the game. At that time, I looked back and he basically waved to the coach.”

“Then I went back and asked him what was happening:’I’m not playing anymore.’ “What’s the matter? “I think I haven’t got the ball yet. At that time I said:’You are done, let F get out of here. This is the end.’ We are working for Carolina. This is the end of the story, and I hope it will end today.”

Arians refuted Brown’s claim that the coach made a throat strangling gesture while telling Brown “let F get out of here”.

Brown had previously claimed that he was “fired on the sidelines due to his injury” and stated that he “succumbed to pressure directly from my coach and injured him.”

“First, they cut me. Now, they put me in a cage. The team didn’t ask me how I felt or understood it in depth. Instead, they texted my camp to promote a completely false narrative. Explain it randomly,” he said his statement Released through his lawyer.

“They even told us in writing,’Don’t spin it in any other way.’ I have pressure and I have what I need to do. But the worst part is that the pirates have repeatedly tried to describe it as a random outbreak. They told people First I left, and then I was laid off. No. No. No. I was cut first, and then I went home. They threw me out like a beast, and I refused to wear their brand on my body, so I put The jersey is off.”

In a statement on Thursday announcing the release of the former Pittsburgh Steelers, the Buccaneers admitted that they knew the wide receiver had recently suffered an ankle injury, but disputed Brown’s claim that the wide receiver was pressured.

“Although Antonio’s ankle did receive medical treatment and was listed in the injury report the week before the game last Sunday, he was approved by our medical team to play before the game, and he did not report to him at any time during the game. Our medical staff indicated that he cannot participate in the game,” said the defending Super Bowl champion.

“We tried to arrange for an external orthopedic expert to conduct an evaluation several times this week, but Antonio did not comply. Maintaining the health of the players is of utmost importance to our organization.”

Tom Brady left the field after defeating the New York Jets.

“I think there are a lot of personal, obvious, feelings. However, I don’t think this is really a week to discuss it. As the quarterback of the team, I just want to do my best and try to put it together.”
