Surprise, surprise. Antonio Brown did something stupid again.

The NFL has suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers star receiver Antonio Brown three games for violating the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

As it turned out, An investigation from the NFL found that Brown lied about his COVID-19 vaccination status, and provided his team with a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport.

“The health and safety of players and personnel is our top priority,” said the NFL and NFL Players Association in a joint statement.

“The protocols were jointly developed working with our respective experts to ensure that we are practicing and playing football as safely as possible during the ongoing pandemic.” 

The news stems from a story that made headlines a couple of weeks ago, where Brown was being accused by his former personal chef of reaching out to him over the summer to get his hands on a fake COVID-19 vaccination card.

The chef, named Steven Ruiz, took a screenshot of Brown’s girlfriend Cydney Moreau texting him on behalf of the Pro Bowler about getting a fake vaccine card. Ruiz recently posted the text chat on his social media.

The investigation also found that Buccaneers backup safety Mike Edwards and free-agent receiver John Franklin III also lied about their COVID-19 vaccination statuses. They will also be suspended for three games.
