Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who famously left his last professional football game sans jersey as he headed off the field has taken his talents to Kanye West’s Donda Sports.
Brown took to his Instagram account to mention that the company has booked a suite at this year’s NFL Super Bowl, taking place Sunday in California at SoFi Stadium. In his post, he also reveals he is the president of Donda Sports.

In an interview last month, Brown revealed that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offered him $200,000 to go to a mental health institution in an attempt to make the Buccaneers “look like they know what they’re talking about.”
According to Sporting News, the temperamental Super Bowl winner appeared on a recent episode of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel along with his attorney Sean Burstyn, to discuss his release from the Buccaneers team.
In the episode, Brown said that the Bucs weren’t being honest about the last interaction he had on the football field. The team said that the reason Brown had an outburst on the field is that he was complaining to head coach Bruce Arians about not getting even passes thrown to him. Brown claimed that he told the team about a foot injury that wasn’t completely healed and Arians rejected that diagnosis.
His attorney has added, “We were specifically told, in writing, by the general manager [Jason Licht], ‘don’t spin this any other way.’ To the extent any of that is coming from the spin that Antonio had a spontaneous mental episode–it’s resentful, it’s hurtful and it’s a disservice to people who do suffer from mental health challenges.”
