Antonio Brown made the headlines after getting into a fight at the joint practice sessions. This is not a rare sight since NFL is a commonplace for heated arguments and raging games during joint practices. However, when punches land and helmets fly, headlines tend to be made. This was what happened on Thursday when the Buccaneers hosted the Titans. Antonio Brown happened to be the epicenter of the commotion.
The receiver from the Buccaneers left the practice after having the fight with Chris Jackson, the defensive back for Titans.

The communication heated up pretty quickly and blows were exchanged. Pictures reveal that Antonio Brown managed to land a proper left hook on Jackson’s jaw.
After the teammates and the coaches intervened to break up the fight, Brown left the practice to cool down. However, he returned to the practice later in order to carry on with later drills.
Antonio Brown Not the Only Challenger
