A young enterprising woman who infamously exposed Antonio Brown for sliding into her DMs is now facing the consequences of that move. Emmy Lou, an Instagram model, revealed that as a result of of her unmasking Brown’s attempts to privately compliment her, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver permanently blocked her. That apparently was not a response the Instagram model saw coming.
Emmy Lou revealed what happened in a post on Instagram.
This past year Emmy Lou became something of a viral celebrity when she posted a number of highly suggestive photographs of herself in Brown’s Oakland Raiders jersey. When the pictures finally got back to him, Brown was seemingly impressed. According to a message leaked by Emmy Lou, he apparently told her she was “sexy sexy.”

Unfortunately, it sounds like the pair’s relationship took a sad turn when she chose to air out his DMs to the public.
As fun as it is to examine Brown’s off-the-field entanglements with various Instagram models, the far more fascinating thing as it pertains to the 32-year-old wide receiver is how he will fare alongside Tom Brady in Tampa Bay.

This past week, the Buccaneers signed Brown to a $2.5 million, incentive-laden deal. He will earn $1 million in base salary and roster bonuses, plus can get an additional $750,000 if the team secures a Super Bowl title. There is also $250,000 set aside in the contract for specific reception, yard and touchdown marks. If the Bucs fail to make the playoffs, Brown will reportedly not be eligible for the individual incentives.
The move is seen as something of a win-win for all sides. Brown gets a chance to redeem himself as an elite receiver in the NFL, and Tampa Bay gets a reliable offensive weapon for Brady.

Mike Evans, who was supposed to be Brady’s big target this year, has been banged up all season. Similarly, Chris Godwin just came back from a hamstring injury and Scotty Miller has been slowed down by a persistent groin issue. Brown will immediately plug some of the holes in Tampa Bay’s offense.
During the offseason, head coach Bruce Arians vehemently said he had no interest in signing Brown.
“Yeah, it’s not gonna happen,” he said in March. “There’s no room. And probably not enough money. But it’s not gonna happen — it’s not a fit here. I just know him, and — it’s not a fit in our locker room. He’s too much of a diva.”
It went viral immediately. https://t.co/8yUQ5530ID

This week, Arians admitted that injuries caused him to change his mind. That said, he had a simple message for Brown: “Be a team player, or be gone.”
Brady and Brown enjoyed noticeable chemistry together in the one game they had prior to Brown getting waived by the New England Patriots. Will they be able to recapture that magic a second time around? Time will tell.
