Latest On Antonio Brown

Days after completing his interview with the NFL, Antonio Brown tweeted an apology to the Patriots and Robert Kraft — parties he previously criticized and parties against whom he’s filed grievances. But some optimism may now exist on the Brown front.

The veteran wide receiver is hopeful he will be given a green light to return to the league before the season ends, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes. Brown has enjoyed a historically drama-filled year but has obviously displayed Hall of Fame-level talent when on the field.

NFL punishment for the sexual misconduct allegations multiple women made against Brown could still come, and clarity is not expected before this weekend’s games. The league could hand down a suspension that prevents Brown from coming back in 2019, but there’s a chance that does not happen and the All-Pro talent will be eligible to play at some point down the stretch.

The Seahawks expressed interest in Brown recently, but with a possible ban looming, the team instead claimed Josh Gordon. While Brown’s 2019 actions have made him one of the most unreliable assets in NFL history, his talent may still entice a team to give him another chance.

    Someone needs to make a case study out of him and how SM can ruin you. I think he’s been concussed 1 too many times, but his accounts certainly didn’t help him with 3 different franchises in less than 1 year.

      If you look back at his football career, he had issues since coming out of high school. Got expelled from Florida International right after showing up on campus. He got a scholarship there because he did not originally cut it with FSU because of academics and then after he attended a prep school , FSU was not interested anymore. Finally got a scholarship at Central Michigan after enrolling as a walk on. He went there because of Butch Jones, the Central Michigan Head coach. Jones had recruited him while at WVU. AB tried to go to WVU but Jones was gone by then. AB got to Central Michigan and he had to be babysat to get to classes, meetings, and practices on time. Just like he always had been with the Steelers. So you can see, he has been this way since High School days.

        Didn’t know that background, thanks. I guess the Steelers’ did a good job of masking it for a while then.

        Wow, not academically eligible for the FSU football team? I didn’t think that was possible!

    So he apologized to the Pats who picked him up off waivers and got him in the middle of the season. What about the Raiders who gave a 3rd and 5th rnd pick and created an offseason game plan that focused on him being the #1 WR?

    I can imagine being a GM or owner and hearing this….

    Please sign me…. I know I have a grievance against 2 of my previous employers for millions of dollars because they couldn’t handle my clown act, but I promise I will be different this time.

      LOL! He is doing the same thing that he has done in both Pittsburgh and Oakland. Does stupid stuff then blasts the team for calling him on it then…..apologizes and says he will be a model citizen….till he blows up again and the cycle repeats…

    Meanwhile, in Buffalo, the front office continues to breath a sigh of relief considering they almost gave up at least one #1 draft choice for him. They are so thankful that he said the if the trade happened that he would not report.

      Right!? Looking like a great decision, especially with the way Buffalo has been performing with AB.

    He misses playing football thats what this b s is all about it is tearing him up not playing

    • HubcapDiamondStarHalo

      His bank balance is what’s tearing him up. It’s not growing.

    Jerry get this guy in a 49ers jersey and keep him focused on the field.AB needs a life mentor. 49ers need a top receiver to help continue the growth of jimmy.

    What’s the popular definition of insanity that gets passed around? “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?”

    Only insane teams would even consider signing this guy.

    • compassrose

      That is why 49er fans want him. Aldon Smith did so well there they miss that type of player. Lol

  8. bradthebluefish

    Come back to the Patriots! Brady is desperate for talented receivers.

    Antonio Brown and Dez Bryant should be in Hollywood making “DUMB & DUMBER” sequels.

    • Polish Hammer

      Probably, but Dez calling out CK for the fraud that he is was hilarious (and correct)…
