Antonio Brown posted a goodbye note to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday following his bizarre outburst and departure from the team in the middle of their comeback win against the New York Jets.

First, Brown posted a photo of himself on Twitter and Instagram. It appeared to be the outfit he was wearing before and after the game. On Instagram, he would post pictures of himself and his children in what appeared to be an advertisement for the clothing company Fashion Nova’s men’s line.

Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians told reporters after the game Brown was out.

“He is no longer a Buc. Alright, that’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys that went out there and won the game,” Arians said.

Tampa Bay took a chance on Brown in the middle of the 2020 season after he was suspended for eight games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He was suspended for three games earlier this season because he submitted a fake coronavirus vaccination card.

The outburst could cost Brown over $1 million after missing out on incentives for hitting certain milestones this season. According to Spotrac, he needed eight more receptions, 55 more receiving yards and another receiving touchdown to hit three separate bonuses that would have earned him $333,000 each.
