   Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver. He has played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Las Vegas Raiders, New England Patriots and most recently the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

   During one of the Buccaneer’s games, Brown walked off the field. The team was trailing the New York Jets 24-10 in the third quarter.

   Brown was seen removing his uniform as well as his padding and gloves. He waved to the crowd as he ran off into the tunnel at the end zone.

   Before the game had started, head coach, Bruce Arians, asked Brown to go into the game and he had refused due to an injury. According to Arians, he never knew about Brown’s injury and denied being told the information.

   Although the Buccaneer’s were losing, Tom Brady, the team’s quarterback, led the team to a comeback. The team ended up with a 27-24 victory.

   After the win, Arians said that Brown was no longer a Buccaneer. By jogging off the field during that game, Brown walked away from nearly a $1 million bonus.

   Brown had a bright path for the Pro Football Hall of Fame that ended due to his absence in the final quarter of that night’s game. He had a long history of peculiar behavior and behavioral conduct issues.

   The Buccaneers were the third team to take on Antonio Brown and took a chance on him. Brown is currently a free agent in the American Football League.
