Antonio Brown claims liquor dealers offered him $200k for mental health help

Antonio Brown is taking a media tour to make a name for himself that he has no mental health issues. Brown and his attorney, Sean Burstyn, sat down to interview Bryant Gumbel for HBO’s “Real Sports” this week. In that interview, Brown and Burstyn said that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offered to pay Brown $200,000 to be placed in a mental health facility.

“These guys at the Tampa Bay Bucs tried to make a deal with me to get me $200,000 to go to the crazy house so these guys could look like they knew what they were talking about,” Brown said.

Burstyn then added some clarification.

“The offer was basically for Antonio to sit on the sidelines, make a list and commit to some form of intensive mental health treatment,” says Burstyn. “And we were specifically told by the general manager (Jason Licht) twice in writing, ‘Don’t shoot this way any other way’.

Gumbel then asked Brown if he believed he needed mental help of any kind.

“I have spiritual wealth, man,” Brown replied. “I know a lot of people who might not understand me or don’t know how I see things or don’t know how I react emotionally to things. But that’s not for them to understand me. I have a beautiful family, kids and people all over the world admire me. There is no reason for me to be in this position at this point.”

Brown and Burstyn also said they are considering suing the Buccaneers for defamation.

“A lot of money. A lot,” Brown said. “That’s total disrespect, man. Mental health is an important key in the world, so to drag people along and play on everyone’s mental health is unfair and regrettable. ”

Brown seems to be keeping a lot of receipts from his time in Tampa Bay. Antonio Brown claims liquor dealers offered him $200k for mental health help
