Antonio Brown: Fake, Vaccine, Covid Update, Penality, Week 11
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused by his former live-in chef of obtaining a fake COVID-19 vaccination card.
According to a report from the Tampa Bay Times, Steven Ruiz (the chef) claims he received a text message from Brown’s girlfriend, Cydney Moreau, in early July that indicated Brown was willing to pay $500 for a forged Johnson & Johnson vaccination card.
Ruiz told the Times he was unable to obtain the fake COVID-19 vaccination cards, but that when he visited Brown’s home a few weeks later, Brown showed him fake cards he had obtained elsewhere.
Ruiz stated that Brown had told people around him that he was worried about negative effects from the vaccine on his body.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers said Thursday that the team received COVID-19 vaccination cards from all of their players. In a statement, the Bucs said every card received had been reviewed by team personnel and “no irregularities were observed.”
The Buccaneers’ comments followed a report published in The Tampa Bay Times that wide receiver Antonio Brown allegedly obtained a fake COVID-19 vaccine card, according to a former chef.
The N.F.L. on Friday suspended wide receiver Antonio Brown for eight regular-season games for his role in a January dispute with a moving company employee, for which he pleaded no contest to burglary and battery charges and received two years probation.
The Los Angeles chef claims Brown owes him and his food company $10,000 after failing to pay him for his services.

Each of these guys has at least top-12 upside and their position, so Week 11 fantasy start ’em, sit ’em calls will be greatly affected.
