Anddddddd if he hadn’t already, Antonio Brown has officially de-railed.

Forget the fact that he threw his furniture out of his hotel room for absolutely no reason one time, forget him quitting the Raiders because they wouldn’t let him wear his “old helmet,” and more importantly, forget the fact that he ripped his jersey and shirt off and quit on the Buccaneers in the middle of their game against the Jets…

Because the man is now making one of the wildest claims I’ve ever heard.

In Brown’s latest interview with HBO’s “Real Sports,” he claims that the Bucs intentionally injected him with the painkiller Toradol before the Panthers game and Jets game to help with his hurt ankle, according to Touchdown Wire.

And on top of that, he also claims that the team offered him $200,000 to go to the “crazy house.”

His attorney Sean Burstyn was there for the interview, and he said:

“To the extent any of that is coming from a spin that Antonio had a spontaneous mental episode, it’s resentful and it’s hurtful and it’s a disservice to people who do suffer from mental health challenges.

We all have our difficulties… Antonio, myself, everybody.”

Brown added:

“Yeah, these guys at Tampa Bay Bucs tried to make an agreement with me to give me $200,000 to go to the crazy house so these guys could look like they know what they’re talking about.”

Burstyn went on:

“The offer was Antonio would basically sit on the sidelines, go on some list, and commit himself to some form of intensive mental health treatment.

And we were specifically told in writing by the general manager twice don’t spin this any other way.”

He also claimed that Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was lying when he said Brown was mad at halftime because he wasn’t getting more passes.

You would think this might be the straw that broke the camels back when it comes to AB’s time in the league…

However, he may be heading to Baltimore next, as he posted a picture to Twitter of him in a Ravens uniform.
