A Few Teams Interested In Antonio Brown?

It’s been assumed that after Antonio Brown was released by the Patriots, he’d have a hard time finding a new home. It’s certainly understandable that most teams wouldn’t want to touch him right now, but a few clubs are apparently sniffing around.

“A few teams” are interested in his client, Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Rosenhaus said the teams “want information regarding his legal situation and the NFL investigation.” The league has said they won’t stop him from playing as they continue to investigate allegations of sexual assault, but we haven’t heard of any real interest before now.

Despite Rosenhaus’ claims, Schefter wrote in a follow-up tweet that people around the league believe a signing is “not likely to happen” until the investigation is fully resolved. Since there’s no timeline for the league’s investigation wrapping up, it certainly seems quite possible that Brown sits out at least the rest of the season.

Brown is likely set for a battle with the Patriots over his signing bonus money, and any deal he signed with a new team would surely include very little guaranteed cash. There are plenty of teams that could use Brown’s talents, but to say they’d be taking a risk is a massive understatement. Brown’s off-field behavior has been erratic to say the least, and although he says he wants to play right away, it wouldn’t be shocking if he’s played his last down of NFL football.

    I’m sure Miami is interested. They’re willing to sign anyone right now.

    • MC Tim C

      Miami only wants high school players. Brown might actually help them win a game.

    • Yeah no chance, Brown had talent – exactly what the Dolphins are avoiding.

    Back to the Raiders in a shocker. Knock on wood if your with me. Maybe not. No one signs him, not this yr.

  3. TheTruth12

    If I had to guess just based on their history Cowboys, Chiefs, and Browns are probably interested. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if KC gave him a huge contract, you pay 1 pos might as well pay them all right?

      All we heard out of you was crickets when New England signed AB. Now you come out of your cave and act like they are a moral high ground organization. True nonsense from the epitome of the Brady/Bill era bandwagon Pats fan.

      • mbraun9

        Because nobody knew about the sexual assault and rape allegations before he signed…not even the Patriots knew. ‍♂️

      • TheTruth12

        Didn’t know I had to comment about everything on here. I loved the signing pre allegations. I mean within a day of the messages surfacing he was off the team, audio recording of Hill threatening his girlfriend and the chiefs give him an extension. And I truly believe if they had known about the allegations they wouldn’t have signed him.

        • madmanTX

          BS they would have signed him anyway because that has been the plan since the Steelers put him on the trade board. They put it out there that they were interested in Brown and it made him essentially break his contract with a trade demand once he found out the Patriots would sign him as soon as he was released. The NFL should be investigating this stuff that the Patriots always do in tampering with players and then signing them.

          • JJB0811

            So the Pats are guilty of looking into a player who was on the trade block? Pit looks like the fools on this. They knew about a bunch of crap and could have pawned him off for a 1st from NE. But choose to ship him for a 3rd and 5th.

            Are the Ravens, Lions, Seahawks, Chiefs, and other teams guilty of tampering looking into J Ramsey then?

          • burtgummer1

            Yup the Patriots would’ve signed him anyway only to release him the following week
            The Pats always tamper by looking into a free agent
            Ignorance at it’s finest

    • cobbalicious

      I don’t want him near kc and I hope they are not dumb enough to sign him. We already have 4 good wr

      The Browns are likely out because I read reports during the Tyreek Hill situation that said John Dorsey basically used all of his power to get Kareem Hunt, and that he wouldn’t try for anyone else (I can’t remember the source, but I definitely remember hearing it).

      I highly doubt the Chiefs are a fit, given that they’ve been at least a little more willing to punish guys (sending Hill on leave and outright cutting Hunt). Besides, they have plenty of offensive weapons that are younger, cheaper, and less of a PR nightmare.

      The Cowboys, who knows? If I had to take a stab at one team, they’re probably the one I’d guess, but they don’t quite seem to be the same Cowboys they used to be either.

      • earmbrister

        Michael/“Truth” – When was the last time the Cowboys signed a troubled free agent?

        Dallas has NO interest in this head case.

        • Wentz It Gonna be my Turn?

          Dallas Cowboys, Greg Hardy agree to one-year deal

          Looks like 4 yrs ago…they’re overdue

      • Steven Juris

        The Chiefs weren’t bothered by Hills red flags before Dorsey drafted him, same with Hunt.

        • ChiTownFanTilDeath

          Not really. YOU’RE AN IDIOT, would have been “well said”. Original poster is however still an idiot.

            If you make grammar/spelling errors, does your insult to someone else’s grammar/spelling error then become invalid? Periods always go inside quotes.

            MLA: Commas and periods directly following quotations always go inside closing quotation marks. Question marks can vary depending if the question is part of the quote, then the punctuation mark goes inside the quotation marks. If the question is not part of the direct quote, it goes outside.

            AP: All punctuation goes inside the closing quotation marks. This includes commas, periods, question marks and exclamation points.

            Chicago: Periods and commas always go inside quotation marks. Question marks and exclamation points that are part of the original quote are included inside quotation marks.

    It’s the job of the agent to generate interest in his client. Around the NFL every GM is probably laughing

  5. sportsfan101

    Dude will be suspended indefinitely the second he signs a contract. Any team to risk it is stupid,

  6. earmbrister

    “A few teams” are interested in Antonio Brown, ACCORDING TO HIS AGENT. Gimme a break. In agent speak = crickets chirping, is my cell phone dead?

    • Polish Hammer

      Arkansas Flying Squirrels of the Arena3 league and Lou’s Towing Service team in the Coastal Rough Touch League don’t count?

  7. JJB0811

    Perfect fit for the Skins. They need attention, don’t care about legal cases, and can use a WR#1. Plus Dan could care less about ‘bad publicity.’ Its still publicity.

  8. forwhomjoshbelltolls

    Is anyone still arguing that Big Chest is a diabolical genius instead of a CTE ridden dunce?

    He’s lost 8 figures in guaranteed money, all of his endorsements and he might never play again.

    Genius.

  9. Misterants

    Oh, well if his agent said so then it’s gotta be true. He wouldn’t say something dishonest like that to try to get teams to “join in showing interest” (Exaggerated eyeroll)

  10. crazylarry

    Wow a mystery team? Rosenhaus playing Scott Boras. Maybe some team will offer $10 million and Rosenhaus will pass ala Boras and have him sign for $3 million.

    Redskins and Chiefs have no problem with players that assault woman and kids.
