Antonio Brown broke his silence rather quickly after being cut from the Buccaneers following a meltdown during the Jets game on Sunday afternoon.
Brown posted on Instagram and Twitter about an hour after the game ended, including a picture of himself with the caption “Super Gremlin” with a hang loose hand emoji.
The wide receiver left the Buccaneers’ win over the Jets during the third quarter after arguing with Buccaneers team members on the sidelines. He then began ripping his jersey, pads and undershirt off, threw them in the stands and walked off the field.
Head coach Bruce Arians announced after the game that Brown “is no longer a Buc.”
The caption of Brown’s post, “Super Gremlin,” is the title of a popular Kodak Black song. It is believed that Brown purposefully made this his caption to reference the song, although Brown has not confirmed that.
The song’s meaning makes sense for Brown’s situation on Sunday. For example, The Focus said “the song sees Kodak Black rap about lost bonds and betrayal as he reminisces over a past friendship.”
The chorus of “Super Gremlin” has also led fans on social media to make connections between the lyrics and Brown’s situation.
“We could’ve been superstars / Can’t help it, now I’m reminiscing / Remember when we was jackin’ cars / Now you better keep your distance / ‘Cause it’s not safe for you / You switched like a p—, lil’ b—.”
Brown joined the Buccaneers in 2020 to rehabilitate his NFL career after a series of releases and helped Tampa Bay won Super Bowl 55. However, after another controversial season this year (he just returned to the team after being suspended for misrepresenting his vaccination status), Brown was one more mistep away from a release.
About 15 minutes after his first post, Brown posted again on Instagram. This time, it was an advertisement for Fashion Nova.
