NFL Network: Brown Bike-Throwing, Camera-Breaking Incident Was Unknown To NFL

November 17th, 2020

The NFL wants you to know that league police didn’t know about Antonio Brown’s latest naughty behavior, this time coming in October while he was suspended eight games under the NFL’s conduct policy.

NFL Network, owned by the NFL, devoted a TV segment today to let the world know corporate honchos were in the dark about what Brown was doing 12 days before he signed with the Bucs.

NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero was specific that he’s learned the league was unaware of the incident prior to reinstating Brown to play. The league website also notes Brown could be subject to more punishment for his alleged October bicycle-throwing, camera-breaking and woman-berating, as described in the Miami Herald yesterday.

This incident is the latest in a string of off-the-field issues involving the Buccaneers receiver. Brown’s eight-game suspension stemmed from two separate incidents: a felony battery charge for attacking a truck driver, for which Brown took a plea deal; and a sexual misconduct case involving a woman. The league also continues to monitor a civil case in Florida, in which a different woman accused Brown of rape and sexual assault. A hearing in that case is set for Jan. 11, less two weeks after the conclusion of the 2020 regular season.

Brown is subject to further discipline from the league if it finds he committed any more violations of the personal-conduct policy.

Pelissero said on television that it’s unclear whether the Bucs had any knowledge of Brown’s October antics before they added him to the team. (Isn’t that a simple yes or no question?)

What a mess that the Bucs really don’t need. But considering Brown remains on the roster, it appears to be a mess the Bucs are happy to have. Joe’s sure hoping a video doesn’t emerge.

    Now Pablo sees why Brady has to baby sit AB 24/7 … Brown loves throwing temper tantrum‘s and have anger management issues

    “Narc always a Narc

    Narcissism is a epidemic

    Its never his fault and why is everybody trying to put AB down

    JBF and posters here are enablers”

    at least he made it to the top of the mountain before going mental, unlike our last head case. and I hope AB get’s it turned around, and I think he will, as he is surrounding himself with the right people.

    not like big ben was a role model *cough*

    bicycle-throwing, camera-breaking and woman-berating

    I guess we can expect to see these added to Joe’s moniker (just for Joe’s amusement)

    That alone is ample reason for me to want him to be CUT NOW!!!

  6. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    until he actually pulls something when he has been on the team I really don’t care.

    Even if he does something here and has to be cut then sure.

    Also why are there a lot of life long Jay Miss defenders that are suddenly turning into the moral police?

    It makes you think.

    “Stupid is as stupid does!”
    Lets hope this doesn’t apply to the Bucs front office.

  8. ClodHopper Says:

    So if he goes from battery and rape to just yelling and bike tossing, does that mean Tony Robbins was a success? Maybe a couple more visits with Robbins will cut him down to just over aggressive road rage. 🙂

  9. JimmyJack Says:

    I dont think this is all that big a deal. The Bucs are supporting him so theres no reason to expect it to cause internal problems.

    This is not the worst story i ever heard( not by a long shot) and could easily just blow over. The problem is it feels like we fans gotta hold our breathes waiting for the next AB incident. Can he go 3 more months hassle-free? Nobody knows. Ill hold my breathe over it.

    In the meantime if he can keep playing like he did on Sunday I am a happy fan.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    I don’t like it. Ron and Ian wouldn’t name the source but said two different sources both witnessed Brown screaming at the Bucs WR coach during the Saints beatdown. His first game back in a uniform.

    If that were true I’d have cut his ass immediately. With Seattle struggling lately and reports they wanted him I’d try and trade his ass or cut him. Dude really is a cancer. I thought he’d changed but there is already smoke…..cut him.

  11. stpetebucsfan Says:

    AB is just the icing on the cake. We do not need him IF our two stars are both healthy.

    I’m totally over celebrities legal issues. Que Sera…Sera.

    He’s either innocent and he’ll beat it…or he’s guilty and he’ll beat it or pay the price. I just have trouble getting invested in this story.

    Part of me is bored…part of me wishes AB good luck if he has truly had an epiphany. What red blooded American doesn’t love a good story of redemption?

    After these 2 latest incidents, AB has ZERO trade value. If he gets suspended again, who would trade for him? We will use him until we can’t or cut him with no suitors in sight.

    The biggest problem I have is with him going after one of our coaches. The other stuff will be handled by legal. But, if he becomes a malcontent within the team, I’d take one sideways look at Brady and tell AB to F off.

  13. lambchop Says:

    Also, the trade deadline for this year is long gone.

    “ if he becomes a malcontent within the team, I’d take one sideways look at Brady and tell AB to F off…”

    Yup.. exactly

  15. Capt.Tim Says:

    Not if, but when, AB does something to get kicked of the team.
    You cant fix whats wrong with this guy.

    Cut the bike throwing ARB NOW!!! JP Peterson is 100% correct.

  17. T REX Says:

    RCS – you weasel. You address my comment at all. You chicken bleep.

    People get mad everyday. Hell, my lunch was screwed up today. Guess what I handled it like an adult. I did not break anything or throw anything.

    Is that how normal people handle things? Raping and pillaging?


    I don’t have pending lawsuits for raping someone either.

    Joe, can we get Dr Wenk at the Florida Cancer Specialists to cut out AB and RCS. Cancers. Both.
