Antonio Brown insists there’s ‘nothing wrong’ with his mental health

| Business News Today | News Today


Antonio Brown insisted on Thursday that there was “nothing wrong” with his mental health weeks after leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and relaunching his rap career.

Brown appeared on the “I Am Athlete” podcast and blamed his outburst in a Jan. 2 game against the New York Jets solely on Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians.

“Why every time something goes wrong, or how someone reacts, ‘Oh he’s crazy, there’s something wrong with his sanity,'” Brown said, via TMZ Sports. “There’s nothing wrong with my sanity. Someone told me to get the hell out of here. I’m not passive-aggressive.”

Brown maintained he was dealing with an injured ankle and told the team’s coaching staff and medical staff that he could not play. Brown was on the injury report throughout the week and claimed to be reluctant to play against the New York Jets.

ANTONIO BROWN CLAIMS RECENT ‘TAKEN SUBSTANCE’ REMARKS, STILL LOVE TOM BRADY

“An NFL Super Bowl team coach said to a guy on the team who was playing injured ‘get out of here,'” Brown added.

Brown’s full remarks are expected to drop on Monday.

Brown claimed earlier this month that he was concerned about his ankle injury during the game in which he came off dramatically while getting rid of his uniform. Arians said the wide receiver has never spoken to a coach or team doctor about his ankle. Instead, Arians pinned the issue on Brown complaining about getting the ball back.
