Buccaneers: Antonio Brown rumors are not worth the concern

Antonio Brown: No cause for concern
Brown is a unique situation for the Buccaneers. On one hand, his talent is second to none in the league, and he immediately improves the outlook for the remainder of this season. On the other hand, Brown has some heavy acquisitions levied against him, and these should carry substantial weight for the rest of his NFL career.

Bruce Arians has upset some people for taking on a player with unresolved issues like those that are hanging around, but he has been clear that when the courts decide, so will the Bucs.
In AB’s defense, breaking a security camera is not the same as what Arians was talking about. Anyone can make a small mistake like that, and Brown also committed this act before he was with the Buccaneers.
The most significant effect of this story is that it will put Brown under more scrutiny moving forward. The primary court case, which should begin in December, will be the ultimate determinant of Brown remaining on the roster. Still, any other small infractions between now and then could also have the same effect.
While all of the signs show that Brown is trying to change his narrative and make amends for his past mistakes, the Buccaneers will need to monitor stories like this closely in the future to ensure that they are handled appropriately.
