Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians knows the risk the team took on when they signed troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown, and states that the veteran wideout is on a “one strike” policy with the team.
A report earlier this week from the Miami Herald’s David Ovalle detailed an incident Brown was involved in within his gated community in which he destroyed a surveillance camera and threw a bicycle at a security shed back on October 15th. Things seemed to have cooled down since, and Arians says that Brown has been a model citizen during his short tenure with the team.
“He’s been a model citizen,” Arians said, during an appearance on SiriusXM Radio. “If and when he’s not, we’ll move on. He knows that. Our team knows that. … I don’t really think we’re going to have any problems. We haven’t had any so far and I wouldn’t anticipate any.”

The Bucs issued the following statement earlier this week in response to the report: “When Antonio joined us, we were clear about what we expected and required of him. Thus far, he has met all the expectations we have in place,” the team said.
