“If Antonio Brown wants a job on another team in the NFL, he can have one. That is not an opinion. That is what I know,” she wrote.

Initial reports indicated that Brown was concerned about his ankle and didn’t want to play. Arians, however, said Brown never told him he was injured and added that the two had a “conversation” and that the player left the field. Arians didn’t say what the conversation included.

According to ESPN, the Buccaneers were talking with the NFL about moving forward with Brown’s situation. The wide receiver is sure to face some kind of discipline from the NFL due to the outburst and leaving the stadium in the middle of the game against the Jets.
