Antonio Brown could be in big trouble with the NFL if any of the allegations against him are true.

On Thursday afternoon, the Tampa Bay Times reported that Brown was being accused by his former personal chef of obtaining a fake vaccine card to bypass NFL Covid protocols.

Bucs receiver Antonio Brown obtained a fake COVID-19 vaccination card so he could avoid NFL protocols, according to his former live-in chef.

The wide receiver and his personal chef fell out over an uncollected debt. Ruiz, who owns Taste ThatLA, says he is owed $10,000. He spoke publicly for the first time about Brown after trying unsuccessfully to extract a settlement from the Super Bowl champion Bucs and after talks with Brown’s lawyer went nowhere.

Ruiz said he was unable back in July to find a fake vaccination card for Brown, who had told those around him that he was worried about the vaccine’s potential negative effects on his body. A few weeks later, however, Ruiz said Brown showed him fake vaccination cards, which the wide receiver told Ruiz he had purchased for himself and Moreau. They were sitting on Brown’s dining room table, Ruiz said. It was just days before the start of Bucs training camp.

NFL insider Adam Beasley went on to add that he had heard that Brown had offered to obtain fake vaccine cards to other NFL players.

Brown is currently maintaining his innocence and claims that he’s been vaccinated.

The NFL will undoubtedly investigate the matter and drop the hammer if they can prove Brown was able to provide himself and others with fake vaccine cards.
