The Tampa Bay Times has reported on accusations that Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown obtained a fake COVID-19 vaccine card in order to continue playing while not complying with NFL protocol.
Brown’s former live-in chef Steven Ruiz, who claims Brown owes him $10,000, is saying that Brown used the fake card to skirt the NFL’s onerous vaccine mandates. Brown’s girlfriend, Cydney Moreau, allegedly sent a text to Ruiz asking to pay for the fake vaccine card.
“Can you get the COVID cards?” Moreau wrote to Ruiz on July 2, according to screenshots sent to the paper.
“I can try,” Ruiz wrote in response.
