Tampa Bay Buccaneers star wide receiver Antonio Brown made his first appearance since all the way back in Week 6 in Sunday’s blowout win over the Carolina Panthers.

Brown initially missed multiple games to injury before being suspended for three weeks for allegedly faking his COVID-19 vaccine card.

The seven-time Pro Bowler talked about said suspension following the game on Sunday. At the very least, he was asked about the suspension and was not excited to cover it in detail.

“I don’t want to talk about that. You guys are all drama. It’s all about football. We’re going to talk about Carolina or I don’t want to talk to you,” Antonio Brown told reporters, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

All of this comes after Brown himself went on an odd social media rant targeting those in the media who were questioning his vaccination status. So, it’s pretty cute that he simply doesn’t want to talk about it now because that doesn’t fit his narrative.

As for Antonio Brown and his performance Sunday against the Panthers, the star wide receiver helped an injury-plagued Buccaneers squad come out on top. He caught 10-of-15 passes for 101 yards from Tom Brady in a 32-6 blowout win over Carolina.

Is Tom Brady the greatest of all time or a cheater?

It’s an interesting scenario to look at given there were some questions about whether Brown would even return to the Buccaneers following his suspension. But once Chris Godwin was lost for the season and Mike Evans suffered a hamstring injury, it became a necessity for the defending champs to bring him back.

Obviously, Brown’s on-field performance vastly outweighs what his enigmatic personality brings to the table off the field.
