Antonio Brown and Buccaneers teammate Mike Edwards each have been suspended three games without pay over misrepresenting their vaccination status under NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols, the league announced Thursday. Brown, recently accused of acquiring a fake COVID vaccine card by his former personal chef, has accepted the discipline and waived his right to an appeal, as has Edwards, a safety. Free-agent receiver John Franklin III was also suspended and, if signed by a team, will be barred from playing in the next three games. “The health and safety of players and personnel is our top priority. The protocols were jointly developed working with our respective experts to ensure that we are practicing and playing football as safely as possible during the ongoing pandemic,” the NFL and NFLPA said in a joint statement. “The NFL and NFLPA jointly reinforce their commitment and further emphasize the importance of strict adherence to the protocols to protect the well-being of everyone associated with the NFL.” #AntonioBrown #COVID #NFL The New York Post is your source for breaking news, news about New York, sports, business, entertainment, opinion, real estate, culture, fashion, and more.
