Koepka Has a Hot Take on Strange Antonio Brown Exit
The sudden and bizarre departure of Antonio Brown from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday spurred golfing superstar Brooks Koepka to make a bold prediction about the future of the NFL.
Immediately following the incident, Koepka, who has won four major championships and finished tied for second place at the 2019 Masters, stated that fans might be able to watch the NFL wide receiver in a boxing ring rather than on the field in the future.

“Hot take: AB will fight a Paul brother before the year is over,” Koepka wrote.
At MetLife Stadium, Brown pulled off his gear and flung part of it into the crowd as his Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in the middle of an incredible comeback win against the New York Jets. As he made his way back to the locker room, he cut through the end zone, attempted to get the crowd pumped up, and then waved to the audience with his peace sign.

Following the incident, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians announced that Brown will be released from the team.
“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.
