Brown recently admitted that undressing on the sideline before throwing the rest of his gear into the stands was probably not the best idea. He said, “It probably wasn’t necessary or professional.” After the incident, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut Brown from the team.
Now things are heating up from both sides. Brown is accusing the team of forcing him to play despite an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Coach Arians claims that he was unaware of Brown’s ankle injury during the game. He added that they decided to remove Brown after repeated outbursts and refusal to play.
