What led Antonio Brown to quit the game and take off his jersey?
Antonio Brown has concerned about the incentive, where if he gets eight catches, he gets a third of a million dollars, and I think that he was concerned that he wasn't going to get that.
Last season there was a point when Tom Brady threw the ball to Antonio brown like on three straight screen passes they called three straight screens to Antonio Brown, so he could get an incentive last year because it was another similar incentive thing.
Why Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians has benched him?
We know that Antonio Brown has taken out of the game at a certain point. We also know that both him and Mike Evans were on snap counts heading into this game, neither one of them was fully healthy.
Antonio Brown had tweaked his ankle, and so they didn't want him to get too much playing time.
