Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown erupted in frustration on the visitors sideline at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, leaving the field in the third quarter with coach Bruce Arians proclaiming after the game that he is no longer a member of the team.

"He is no longer a Buc," Arians said after the Buccaneers' 28-24 victory over the New York Jets. "That's the end of the story. Let's talk about the guys that went out there and won the game."

When asked for more details on what led to Brown's departure, Arians said, "I'm not talking about him. He's no longer part of the Bucs."

A source told ESPN that Brown was not benched. "He quit," the source said. Brown did not fly home on the team charter, according to another source.
