Could Antonio Brown’s Time In Tampa Be Coming To An End?

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Monday that he has not yet decided the future of wide receiver Antonio Brown, whose three-game suspension for a fake vaccination card is set to end after this week.

An NFL investigation determined that Brown, safety Mike Edwards and former Bucs wide receiver John Franklin III produced fake vaccination cards.

“I haven’t made that determination yet, but we’ll see how it goes,” Arians said of Brown.

Under NFL rules, Brown is eligible to return to practice next week to play in the Bucs’ Week 16 game at the Carolina Panthers, ESPN reports.

Arians said at the time of the suspension that he would not comment on Brown’s future with the team and that the Bucs would treat him and Edwards as if they were injured players.

ESPN reports that both players have been working out away from team facilities, but said Arians told Brown when he first signed with the team that “there will be no second chances.”

At the time of signing with Tampa Bay, Brown was already suspended by the NFL for eight games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy after he allegedly assaulted a delivery truck driver. He was also the subject of a civil lawsuit by his former trainer, but the two settled out of court in April of 2021, ESPN reports.
