Bucs HC Bruce Arians has ‘no regrets’ bringing in Antonio Brown

Star wide receiver Antonio Brown’s stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to an abrupt close on Sunday after a strange midgame sidelined incident.

Brown chose not to enter the game after he felt that his ankle wasn’t healthy enough to play through. The situation quickly transpired to see the 33-year-old take off his shoulder pads, throw his gloves and undershirt into the crowd, then jog off the field into the locker room.

After the game, head coach Bruce Arians immediately voiced that Brown was no longer on the team. With a day to reflect on the matter, Arians voiced that he has no regrets.

“I have no regrets. I just hope the best for him,” Arians said Monday, acknowledging that it was difficult for him to watch Brown erupt on the sideline in such a chaotic way via Jenna Laine of ESPN.

Brown’s actions led to the chaotic nature of the incident seeing him choosing to make a scene after the disagreement with Arians and several Buccaneers coaches. Although Tampa Bay hasn’t officially cut the star wideout, it will leave him on the outside looking into the NFL again.

It’s too soon to determine whether Brown wants to continue to play, but it begs the question of whether he’s worth taking another chance on, given his recent track record over the last few years. He possesses tremendous talent, but he’s shown that his decision-making remains questionable at best.

Brown won’t get another opportunity to play this season, and beyond that remains highly uncertain.
