Tampa Fires DWTS’ Antonio Brown After Running Off Field Shirtless

Antonio Brown Quits Tampa Bay

Dancing with the Stars and The Mased Singer alum Antonio Brown is without an NFL team after exhibiting bizarre behavior on the field. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver ripped off his shirt and shoulder pads midway through the third quarter quarter of Sunday’s NFL game against the New York Jets.

The below video shows teammates trying to calm down an agitated Brown, who nevertheless began stripping off his clothes, and walking across the field while the teams were still on the field. After going shirtless, Brown threw his clothes toward the stands as he ran across the field, giving the crowd a “peace out” sign as he exited.

The below video provides the best look at the incident as it unfolded. Reports say that Brown’s meltdown began head coach Bruce Arians benched him. Brown had three catches and 26 yards for the day.

Suspended for trying to pass off a fake vaccination card

Brown was already in hot water. After signing a new one-year, $3.1 million deal with the team in May, he was suspended for three games in early December, forfeiting $183K+ in salary, after violating NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols. Basically, he tried to pass off a fake vaccination card and got caught.

Antonio Brown “no longer a Buc”

After the game, Coach Arians told press that Brown “is no longer a Buc. That’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys who went out there and won the game.”

Brown competed on Dancing with the Stars and The Masked Singer

Brown came in 4th place on Dancing with the Stars season 22 in 2016 with pro-partner Sharna Burgess. The pair were eliminated during the semi-finals. Additionally, Brown joined The Masked Singer season 1 in 2019 as Hippo, but left the competition after singing Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative” on the first episode.

The NFLer played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2010-2018, followed by a one season stint on the Oakland Raiders. New England Patriots signed him for the 2019 season, but accusations of sexual personal misconduct were piling up against him and the team let him go after one game.
