If Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown used fake vax card, it could be criminal offense

Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused of obtaining a fake COVID-19 vaccination card by a former personal chef, according to a report from the Tampa Bay Times. Chef Steven Ruiz decided to stop working for Brown after the two couldn't agree on a debt of $10,000 that Ruiz claims Brown owed him.

Text messages from the report supposedly show Brown's girlfriend, Cydney Moreau, asking Ruiz whether he could obtain a fake COVID-19 vaccination card for Brown. Ruiz said he was unable to do so but alleges that he later learned Brown had obtained a fake vaccine card elsewhere just days before training camp. He claims to have seen it himself.

Fantasy Impact: 

Brown denies this and said he'd be willing to get a booster shot on live TV if that's what it would take. The Bucs said there were no irregularities when it came to viewing vaccination cards for their players.
