Antonio Brown Still Planning NFL Return

Antonio Brown‘s latest off-field incident has not discouraged him from wanting to continue his NFL career. Despite his arrest on multiple charges from a Hollywood, Fla., incident last week adding to a historic downfall, the former All-Pro said he “has a shot” to return to the league.

A Florida judge freed Brown from the ankle monitor and house arrest Tuesday. Brown, however, faces charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief after an incident in which a moving-truck driver accused Brown and trainer Glen Holt of battery. This followed the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, and the league has now folded the most recent incident into its months-long Brown investigation.

I put myself in a bad predicament,’’ Brown said, via USA Today’s Josh Peter. “I’m out of it now, man. Unfortunate situation, but we don’t make excuses and we’re going to make the best of it. … I’m planning to come back to the NFL.”

While Brown’s troubles are far from over, there certainly remains a chance he returns to the league. Players with considerably worse off-field pasts have come back to NFL action, and Brown has submitted a Hall of Fame resume. Though, the career freefall that began with his Steelers departure has been one of the most shocking in recent NFL annals. All of the events between then and now have certainly made the four-time first-team All-Pro wideout a major reliability risk. A suspension looms as a near-certainty.

Brown played in one game this past season — the Patriots’ Week 2 Dolphins tilt — and has not played consecutive games since Weeks 15 and 16 of the 2018 campaign. He worked out for the Saints in late December, but even that produced drama. Drew Rosenhaus severed ties with Brown after a video revealed the former Rosenhaus client’s profanity-laced tirade directed at the mother of one of his children and police. Prior to this legal issue, teams were holding off on considering a Brown signing until the league investigation ends. Brown will turn 32 in July.

            I wanted to be born good looking and rich. Almost 60 and have a better chance to be born good looking.

            Any team that signs him is stupid. If the Seahawks sign him I hope he gets hurt. Never said that before but this guy is a special case. When we got Graham never hoped he was hurt just gone. Was nerve l was never a fan. Same with a few others.

    “Antonio Brown‘s latest off-field incident has not discouraged him from wanting to continue his NFL career.”

    Possibly regrettably for AB, the NFL might have something to say about that.

    Sounds like the money is just about gone. I give it another 3 months until the repo man tows away the Bentley and the bank padlocks the door to the Hollywood home.

    Then AB will be back to living on the streets – just like in high school after his mom tossed him out of the house.

    Hahahahahahahaha!……..Hahahahahahahaha! lmao. This guy is the biggest tool pro sports has going right now. I for one am thrilled. I know some people want him to go away, but I can’t wait to watch another team sign him and see the shenanigans this clown gets into.

    You aren’t out of it yet, AB. You still face charges from this latest incident and still have those sexual abuse allegations to clear up.

    The guy is delusional.

    Almost no one is better off in prison (we as a society might be, but they are not) but…Mr. Big Chest would be the rare exception.

    Hopefully he violates his parole and gets some time to think.

    “I put myself in a bad predicament,’’ Brown said

    That’s as close to being honest as I have ever heard from Brown.

  8. thegmen

    Hopefully the arrest was the wake up call he needed. I doubt it but I hope for the best.

  9. raiderfurlife

    His definition of NFL is nothing for losers he just doesn’t know it yet

    Antonio will certainly try to upstage the SB on Sunday by doing something insane…so stay tuned for the next update.

    He can be heard saying “f—-“ the nfl in his latest rambling video that that he took and shared for all to see. Hope every team returns that feeling.

    jay Glazer has reported that Antonio Brown has signed a 3-5 year future contract to play for the ‘Mean Machine’ in the Florida Correctional League. Terms have not been released.
