Why Did Antonio Brown Leave The Bucs?
The reason behind Antonio Brown leaving the Bucs seems to be personal problems that he has been facing in recent times.
Be clear that the player has not discussed the actual cause to this date, so we can only guess it on the basis of other information.
CNN reports that Antonio was banned for three games without pay in December of 2021 after the investigation about him violating COVID protocols was conducted.
In the meantime, multiple other controversies about the player are also familiar among the viewers.
On the other hand, Brown signed one year contract with the team back in October 2020.
So his contract has expired and the team might not have offered him another contract offer.
Apparently, anything is possible at the moment but it is for sure that the player didn’t look happy at all.
