Antonio Brown is tired of all the disrespect.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver took to Twitter to tell the world that he is tired of his name being mishandled in these digital streets.
“Put some RESPECT on my Name! All Of YALL !!!!”
After a three-game suspension for providing a fake vaccination card to the NFL, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians decided to bring AB back.
On Monday, the coach talked more about his decision to bring Brown back, who was on the edge of dismissal after a series of conduct violations throughout his career led to the decision to produce a bad vaccination card.
Arians Has Spoken
Last year, Arians said of Brown, “If he screws up one time, he’s done.”
However, he has changed his tune to the benefit of AB.
“Well, the history has changed since that statement,” Arians said. “A lot of things went on last year that I was very proud of him. And I made a decision that was best for our football team.”
The season-ending injury to All-Pro wide receiver Chris Godwin, the rash of other injuries and Tom Brady’s horrific performance on Sunday night undoubtedly also influenced the 360 by Arians concerning Brown’s playing status.
AB had already been on an ambiguous Twitter trolling spree before Arians’ revelation. However, his coach proclaimed his necessity for the team emboldened his Twitter fingers.
It also made him step to the public, who decided to give AB the blues for his indiscretions.
“Taller in person you see when we meet.”
Can you say passive-aggressive? Brown got tired of the direct shade that came after his “put some respect on my name” tweet. Now AB wanted all the trolls to know his listed height of 5 feet 10 looks way larger in person.
Brown and third-year safety Mike Edwards turned in fake vaccination cards, violating NFL rules and a federal crime. Each had a three-game suspension through Sunday night’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
