In the middle of Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown removed his jersey and shoulder pads on the sideline, tossing them aside.
He then removed more of his equipment, tossing it into the stands before walking shirtless across the field while play continued, waving to the crowd at MetLife Stadium as he made his way toward the locker room.
After the Bucs’ 28-24 comeback win, head coach Bruce Arians told the media that Brown was no longer a member of the team. Subsequent reports indicated that Brown caught a ride from the stadium and wouldn’t be flying back with the team.
So, what led to Brown’s outburst?
Here’s the latest from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

Less than two games after he returned from a three-game suspension, it looks like Brown’s brief career in Tampa Bay has come to a dramatic end.
