On Thursday evening, a report surfaced from Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times regarding Bucs wide receiver Antonio Brown’s COVID vaccination status. Brown’s former live-in chef accused the receiver of acquiring a fake COVID-19 vaccination card in order to play under the NFL protocols for vaccinated players.

But the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have responded quickly, confirming Brown is fully vaccinated. The team released this statement less than two hours after the initial report.


Not long after the initial reports from the Tampa Bay Times, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport spoke with Brown’s attorney, Sean Burstyn. Burstyn also stated that Brown is vaccinated.

Considering the Bucs and the NFL are confident in Brown’s vaccination status, this story seems to be over before it began.

Brown missed the Bucs’ Week 3 game against the Rams after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week. He was activated the following Tuesday and played in Week 4 against the Patriots. In order for a vaccinated player to return, they must remain asymptomatic and receive two negative tests 24 hours apart before their next game.

In five games this season, Brown has arguably been the Bucs best receiver with 29 receptions for 418 yards and four touchdowns. He has missed the last three games with an ankle injury.

Sounds like Rick Stroud should verify his reports and do a better job of reporting. I am guessing Brown won’t be doing many interviews with Stroud.

Leave the dude alone. Brown has done nothing but work hard since he’s been here. There’s always people oUt there with some type of agenda to tear someone down. Never thought much of stroud anyway.

Who cares if he’s vaxxed or not. His choice. Does vaccine make you not contract it or spread it? No it doesn’t. Bunch of BS.

The bunch of BS is coming from you and the other stupid anti-vaxxers. Of course the vaccine tremendously reduce the risk of infection as well as serious illness and death. Only idiots like you pretend otherwise.

What a maroon!, as Bugs Bunny would say.

fredster is, in fact, 100% correct: there is zero difference between the Noble Vaxxxed and Unwashed Unvaxxxed in terms of spreading this ‘virus”, as both groups have proven to hold the same concentrations of virus in the nasal passages. The vaxxx neither slows the spread nor insures the vaxxxed will not get sick and/or die. These are proven peer-reviewed facts from scholarly studies. Even garden gnome Faici has admitted this on television. I am sorry you missed it. In fact, we will soon see how the vaxxx is responsible for creating the variants. We were warned about this by scientists… Read more »

Story is not over… AB’s lawyer should get busy to deal with whoever started those unfounded rumors. They must be held responsible in accordance with the law.

Although I don’t agree with the witch hunt, what rock do you live under to presume the “story is already over”? The NFL has NOT confirmed the status of the vaccination and a spokesman actually said the league will be conducting an investigation. Frankly Pewter Report, this is extremely lazy “reporting”.

The Bucs have already confirmed that AB is vaccinated. End of story. There is nothing for the NFL to investigate.

It’s a sad state of affairs when folks are so quick to pass judgement before any facts are gathered. With the holidays just around the corner; I guess nowadays that old song, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus” would cause many to immediately conclude that Mommy is a slut who was trying to get a better gift for herself by performing a sexual favor while she thought her husband and kids were asleep……….and on Christmas Eve. Just deplorable! Talk about “Ho Ho Ho”.

That’s funny. For Bucs nation it’s not an issue yet the NFL is investigating.
It’s Antonio Brown. He and his lawyer have said other things that turned out to not be true.

The NFL “investigated” Tom Brady and Deflategate, and condemned him even though repeated scientific testing proved beyond the slightest doubt, as understood by anyone familiar with the gas laws and how footballs function in cold, wet conditions, that Deflategate was 100% bullshit. The NFL and Commissioner Goodell did that to get back at Belichick and the Patriots because the rest of the AFC was complaining bitterly that the Pats were “too good to be true”. The NFL also “investigated” the Washington Football Team, yet the only persons they outed from the 650 thousand emails collected, were Jon Gruden and Bruce… Read more »
