Bucs WR Antonio Brown loses cool, tosses jersey and pads vs. Jets
Just when we thought we’d seen it all from Antonio Brown, he added another act to his infamous career on Sunday.
In the middle of the third quarter against the New York Jets, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver was seen walking shirtless into the locker room.

It’s unclear as to why Brown chose to remove his helmet, jersey and shoulder pads, but the Bucs were trailing the Jets 24-10 at the time.
He was seen throwing his gloves and undershirt to the New Jersey crowd as he ran through one of the end zones with the game clock ticking.

Brown was also seen waving and giving a “peace” sign to the crowd while trying to pump the fans up and give them high fives.
And according to Spotrac, the incident could potentially cost him up to $1 million in bonuses if the receiver doesn’t get an opportunity to put his jersey back on.
Antonio Brown needed:
8 more catches to unlock a $333,333 bonus.
He also needed 55 receiving yards to unlock another $333,333 bonus.
He also needed just 1 receiving TD to unlock another $333,333 bonus.
This was a costly outburst.

Current Tampa Bay and former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said after the 28-24 comeback win over the Jets that Brown was “no longer a Buc.”
