On Sunday (Jan. 2), the former Heisman Trophy winner took to Twitter to share his thoughts about Brown’s meltdown. “There’s one thing we all agree on, as well as the other people here,” he said in the 46-second video. “For what Tom Brady has done for Antonio Brown … for him to pull what he pulled today is completely inexcusable.”
“Playoffs are coming up and you pull this crap on a guy who literally went out on a limb for you?” Simpson said. “It’s totally B.S. Inexcusable.”
As REVOLT previously reported, on Sunday (Jan. 2), Brown took off his jersey, undershirt and pads and threw his shirt and gloves into the stands during the third quarter of the game. He ran across the end zone while his teammates and the Jets were on the field. The wide receiver then waved to fans as he went to the locker room. Following his antics, Coach Bruce Arians told the media that Brown was no longer a member of the team.
“He is no longer a Buc,” Arians said after the Buccaneers’ 28-24 win. “That’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys that went out there and won the game.” When reporters asked for additional details on what led to Brown’s release, the coach said, “I’m not talking about him. He’s no longer part of the Bucs.”
Arians later told Fox News that Brown refused to get into the game twice, but he did not know why he didn’t want to take the field.
During the post-game conference, Tom Brady told the media that he loved Brown and cared about him. He also asked everyone to be “very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things that are happening.”
