Antonio Brown continued to accuse the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of mistreatment after his sideline outburst, mid-game departure, and subsequent release earlier this season.
Brown’s latest accusations include an allegation that the Bucs offered Brown $200,000 to remain with the team on “some list” (per his attorney, Sean Burstyn), while undergoing some sort of mental health treatment.
Brown and Burstyn continued to tell their side of the story on the latest episode of HBO’s “Real Sports” with Bryant Gumbel, an excerpt of which can be seen above.
The Bucs have maintained that Brown’s outburst was the result of his own frustration during the Week 17 game against the New York Jets because he wasn’t getting the ball thrown his way enough. Brown continues to deny that version of events, accusing the Bucs of mistreatment and blaming the situation on an ankle injury he says the team wanted him to continue to play through.
