Due to COVID rules violation Antonio Brown suspended

For not following COVID Rules Antonio Brown with two other NFL players have been immediately suspended for three games by the league. Tampa Bay Wide receiver and teammate Mike Edwards was also suspended on Thursday.

Antonio Brown Suspended:

The NFL Players’ Association, which drafted the protocol with the league, represented the three players during a review of recent allegations that players misrepresented their vaccination status. Brown, Edwards, a cornerback, and Franklin, a defensive back who last played for the Bucs in 2019, were found to be in breach of protocol.

NFL Remarks:

“The health and safety of athletes and personnel is our first priority,” the NFL and NFLPA said in a joint statement. “The protocols were jointly developed with our relevant experts to ensure that we practice and play football as safely as possible during the ongoing epidemic. NFL-NFLPA But they reaffirm their commitment to the importance of strict adherence to the protocol to protect the well-being of every individual in the NFL.

Buccaneers statement:

“We commend the League for its timely handling of this issue and recognize the importance of the Health and Safety Protocol,” the statement said. “We will continue to implement all of the League’s COVID-19 protocols.”

Brown joined Tampa Bay in the middle of last season after serving an eight-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. It helped Bucks win the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history.

The 33-year-old receiver, who has 29 catches and four touchdowns for 418 yards this season, has been ruled out of the last five games due to an ankle injury. He also ended the team’s Week 3 loss to the Los Angeles Rams after a positive test of COVID-19.

The Bucs (8-3) are 5-0 when they play this season, 3-3 without it.

Edwards, meanwhile, is a backup safety who has started two games and has been a key partner in a defense to heal wounds. The third-year pro leads the club with three interceptions, two of which are back for TDs.

The suspension comes two weeks after a Los Angeles chef told the Tampa Bay Times that Brown had received a fake COVID-19 vaccination card shortly before training camp began in July. The newspaper reported that Steven Ruiz provided a screenshot of the text message exchange in which Brown’s girlfriend asked the player’s former live-in chef if he could get a Johnson & Johnson vaccination card.

When the personal chef replied that he could try, the girlfriend replied, “Ab said he would give you $ 500.”

Ruiz, who also claims Brown owes him 10,000 10,000, told the newspaper he is unable to find a vaccination card for Brown.

The chef added that a few weeks later he saw two vaccine cards on the dining room table that the recipient had told him were bought for the player and his girlfriend.

The Bucs announced shortly before the start of the regular season that their entire roster and coaching staff had been fully vaccinated.

Without specifically mentioning Brown’s condition, Bucks said two weeks ago that the team had received and reviewed complete vaccination cards from all players and that “no irregularities were observed.”
