This is the most Antonio Brown story ever.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver allegedly a fake COVID-19 vaccination card so he could avoid having to abide by NFL protocols, according to his former chief that lived with him.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Brown’s girlfriend, Cydney Moreau, told Las Angeles chef Steve Ruiz in a text message back in July that Brown was willing to pay up to $500 if he could get a Johnson & Johnson vaccination card:
“Can you get the COVID cards?” Moreau texted Ruiz on July 2, according to a screen grab he provided to the Tampa Bay Times.
“I can try,” Ruiz responded.
“JNJ shot. Ab said he would give you $500,” Moreau texted.
The Bucs would not make Brown available to the Times for an interview. Bucs officials and Brown’s agent declined to discuss the story. And Brown did not respond to messages left on his cell phone.
Brown is recovering from a foot injury sustained in a Thursday Night Football game at Philadelphia on Oct. 14.
