However, after fans on social media pointed out that MRI was taken on October 15th, two months before the game against the Jets.
After the October 14th game, Antonio Brown missed a handful of games with the ankle injury. His first game back was December 26th against the Carolina Panthers. And when he left the game against the Jets the next week, he already had amassed 5 targets.
So to say the he didn’t get any targets doesn’t make any sense. And of course they were aware of that MRI, he missed a bunch of games after it.
Antonio Brown finally posted his injured ankle X-ray “from after the Jets game”.
In Brown’s 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.”
“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.
