A Twitter user reacted to the incident noting that Brown signed a one-year agreement with Tampa Bay buccaneers, so "is not a problem to reduce bait if they choose it."
Another tweeted, "This is exactly what happened in Pittsburgh, people drank it and made excuses for him constantly. Tampa Bay is falling into that same trap, except, Brown is not as good as it used to be."
A third aggregate, "AB is human. We all make mistakes. I can not keep raising his past every time something goes wrong. Even calm head players, as Andre Johnson got into altercations. Stop hatred."

Gene Villarreal, another football fan on Twitter wrote, "The camp fights occur all the time. It's hot, both teams talk to fuck, it's going to happen. The practice of Raiders-Rams ended early due to the fight. This is a thing because it is ab. No one is suspending. Surely to say that no start to play week 2 of the preseason. "
Thursday practice was interrupted by another altercation between the Titan Titaña Jeffery Simmons, the Buccaneers run to Leonard Fournette and the center of Tampa Ryan Jensen Bay, reports CBS.
"That was not our approach," Simmons said about the incidents, through Turron Davenport of ESPN. "Our approach was to enter and do what our coaches teach, it's soccer, it's competitive, you have many guys who compete for jobs, for places. ... There will be sparks, guys talking about blow, or whatever possible. But we do not want Shocks thrown or something like that. "
Bucs Linebacker Devin White also shook the practice when he appeared "to shoot down a Titan Suplex style."
"Great practice," White told reporters later, Yahoo reports "many adult men, competing with emotions. Things happen. I just have to protect your brothers. I was just trying to help one of my brothers. I just saw One of my brothers who threw themselves, so I just tried to help him. That's it. "

The coach of the Tampa Bay, Bruce Arians, told reporters, none of his players will be punished by the fights that occurred during practice.
"Really satisfied with the work, we have obtained the last two days, an extremely good competition," said Arians. "Obviously, it always happens when the ruffles and gunners come together, something begins. But it was energetic, it was a great practice and I really appreciate the titans to come here and help us improve and, hopefully, we did better."
