Antonio Brown’s On-Field Incident Against the New York Jets Will Auction as an NFT

Antonio Brown’s on-field incident several weeks ago against the New York Jets is expected to fetch around $1.5m USD when it hits auction as a newly minted NFT.

For those new to the story, the star wideout abruptly left the field in the third quarter where he was seen taking off his equipment in a flurry. He proceeded in throwing his gloves and shirt in the stands, going into the endzone to do jumping jacks, before heading into the locker room. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released Brown in the days to follow.

Since then, there has been a clash of words between the two sides, with Brown going as far as to post text conversations throughout the season with him and coach Bruce Arians — essentially claiming that he was being forced to play through a nagging injury. Brown has also kept himself in the public eye — having been spotted at a Brooklyn Nets game, performing his new rap song at a NYC strip club and joined Kanye West and Julia Fox for a dinner in Los Angeles.

The Jets incident has generated 11.5 million views on Twitter and will be hitting auction via on Thursday at 3pm ET.
