Agent: Teams “Very Interested” In Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown says he’s done with the NFL. However, the NFL isn’t necessarily done with him. At least, that’s what agent Drew Rosenhaus told Warren Sapp on his “99 Problems” podcast.

Because of the pending investigation by the NFL, I can’t say much more than what I have. It’s of course unfortunate that Antonio was released by the Patriots. We wanted very much to make that work, but we’re moving on,” Rosenhaus said. “I believe that Antonio wants to continue his career in the NFL and I’ve mentioned that. I have had discussions with a few teams that are very interested in him and want to know about his future and what’s going on with the NFL. Hopefully, when that is all resolved, Antonio will be able to continue his Hall of Fame career. That’s really where our focus is.”

Accusations of sexual assault – plus recent communications with one of his accusers – have Brown’s future in jeopardy. He’s currently facing civil lawsuits from two different women and the Patriots are attempting to withhold a $5MM portion of Brown’s guaranteed signing bonus.

Meanwhile, Brown is headed back to school – sort of. The wide receiver has enrolled for online classes at Central Michigan University, though Rosenhaus stresses that fans and teams should not “read too much into that.”

“Taking online college courses to get your degree or your post-graduate degree is something that I would recommend to every client,” the agent said.

Three teams reportedly expressed interest in Brown following his release from the Patriots.

    “C’mon, man, there’s a LOT of commission cash on the line for me here! Let’s keep AB in the news!”

    When you constantly have to tell us how many teams are interested in AB, it really means no one is interested in signing him. Good try though, Drew.

    Someone’s been reading Scott Boras’ “How To Be A Sports Agent: For Dummies”

    There are two teams in the NFL who tend to be more liberal with taking on problems. AB was released by both of them in a span of 2 weeks.

    I’m interested in getting a new Nissan Rogue. Don’t mean it’s gonna happen.

    Drew Rosenhaus is such a clown, we’re not stupid, any agent can stir the pot by saying teams are interested.

    • Polish Hammer

      Nah, they sent their last load of WR garbage to New England, not looking to bring any back.

      • coltsrocker1

        Considering the Browns were one of the teams interested in him before he signed with New England, it’s not too farfetched they’d be interested now

    As a general rule of thumb, “call me when he gets out of trouble” and “very interested” are not the same thing.

    Seriously folks… isn’t his agent paid to put a positive spin on things?!

    I’m just wondering how many of those already enshrined in Canton will petition the selection committee to have Brown disqualified from consideration.
