Antonio Brown was doing a good job of staying out of trouble. Keyword, ‘was’.
The Buccaneers WR has been suspended 3 games by the NFL for using a fake vaccination card. The league does not require their players to be vaccinated under the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols, but submitting a fake card does carry discipline as an NFL player, likewise to real life
When a report alleged of Brown’s card being fake, the WR came out and said he would take his booster shot on live television to prove his innocence. Clearly it was a smoke screen to the fact that he not vaccinated at the time of submitting a phony card. Whether he is vaccinated now doesn’t exactly change things.
Tampa Bay’s Mike Edwards was also caught with one and both players have accepted the discipline and waived their right of appeal.
