Former Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown says don’t expect him to play next season.

Last season, the NFL world got to see Antonio Brown’s public departure from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After a discrepancy with then-head coach Bruce Arians over an ankle injury, Brown ripped off his helmet and jersey, leaving MetLife Stadium in the middle of the team’s game against the New York Jets.

Brown made an appearance during a Fan Controlled Football League game, and was asked by Charly Arnolt whether fans would see him play next season. The wide receiver responded with “nah, don’t play yourself looking at me to play.”

After forcing his way off of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019, he had short stints with the Las Vegas Raiders and New England Patriots that year. He would make a return to an NFL field in 2020, signing on with the Buccaneers. He won his first ever Super Bowl title in 2020 and signed on with the team in 2021.

But, the tenure in Tampa came to an abrupt halt after walking off of the field in the middle of the aforementioned Jets game. He was waived shortly afterwards and did not sign on with a new team since.

Recently, Brown said that he would not undergo ankle surgery until an NFL team signs him to a contract.

Now, in the latest update in the Antonio Brown saga, the wide receiver says that he is not going to play football next season.
