Ahead of the a Week 2 NFL Preseason matchup, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans held a pair of joint practices starting on Wednesday. On Thursday, tempers began flaring between both sides and resulted in a number of skirmishes.
Naturally, the polarizing Antonio Brown was at the center of one of them. According to reports, Brown lost his temper in such poor fashion that he was immediately ejected from the joint practice.
Antonio Brown Fight
Buccaneers insider Rick Stroud described the incident. It occurred during a one-on-one drill with Titans cornerback Chris Jackson. Brown was so fed up during the drill, he ended up ripping off Jackson's helmet.
All in all, it's probably harmless news. Joint NFL practices have a tendency to see tempers flare and result in these types of skirmishes. But, with Brown in the middle of one, that's always an "eyebrows raised" type of situation.
Aside from all of his off-field baggage, Brown signed with the Buccaneers mid-season during the 2020 campaign and it resulted in a dream scenario. Tampa Bay and Brown hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and the veteran wideout remained out of the headlines for his off-field antics.
Time will tell if Brown can stay out of the headlines for his first full year in Tampa Bay.
