In one of the least surprising things you’ll hear this week, Antonio Brown has made negative press once again. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver has been accused of faking his COVID-19 vaccine status by an ex-chef who claims Brown had a fake vaccination card.

Now Brown is saying the allegations against him are not valid.

The allegations began when Brown’s formal personal chef Steven Ruiz told the Tampa Bay Times that Brown received the fake vaccination paperwork back in July. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers official Twitter account tweeted on Thursday that they had received official paperwork from every player on the roster. All vaccine cards were reviewed, and that no irregularities were found.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport says he spoke with Brown’s lawyer and that the receiver is indeed vaccinated, and the allegations are simply not true. Brown is no stranger to making headlines for the wrong reason. Throughout his career, the former Pro Bowler has had issues, but since joining the Buccaneers, Brown has stayed out of the headlines for the most part.

It is also being reported that Ruiz and Brown had a falling out after Ruiz alleged that Brown failed to pay him $10,000 for his services. The NFL will review the allegations against Brown, as Brown was not seen at practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Brown could face federal charges if the allegations are true.
