Antonio Brown blasted by his brother for quitting mid-game on Buccaneers

Desmond Brown blasted his brother Antonio Brown for his on-field outburst as he said there is no honor in quitting. Brown made all the headlines when he took off his uniform and ran off the field during the third quarter of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' win over the New York Jets.

After the game, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Brown was no longer a Buc. Desmond Brown told the Daily Caller that his brother made “a real selfish move to leave [in the] middle of the game like that though,” adding, “there’s no honor in quitting”.

Also, Desmond Brown questioned if “maybe something happened in the locker room” prior to the game at MetLife Stadium, or at halftime.

Tom Brady suggested Brown needs help

"Yeah, I mean that's obviously a difficult situation, and I think we all want him to -- I think everybody should hopefully do what they can to help him in ways that he really needs it," said Brady after the game.

"We all love him, we care about him deeply. We want to see him be at his best, and unfortunately it won't be with our team. We have a lot of friendships that will last and again I think the most important thing about football are the relationships with your friends and your teammates and they go beyond the field.

I think everyone should be very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things that are happening." Running back Le'Veon Bell texted Brown immediately after the game. "I found out when we got into the locker room at the end of the game," Bell said.

"I instantly sent him a text, to try to catch up with him real quick. Obviously he texted me back and I talked to him. He's still one of my close friends. Like you won't hear me talking bad about AB at all. Obviously I understand, things happen, but he's one of my closest friends I've been around, a close teammate, overall a good person.

Some bad decision-making at times, but he's human, not perfect, and we'll continue to move on without him and keep moving forward. "It's tough. Obviously when I came over here, I was happy to be reunited with him.

Unfortunately it was only two games, but at the end of the day, I wish the best for him outside of football or whatever's next for him."
