Latest On Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown shared a disturbing video on social media this week that could be yet another barrier in his quest to return to the NFL. In the live broadcast (NSFW, profanity) Brown is seen yelling at the mother of one of his children and police, with kids present.

The Saints passed on signing Brown after working him out in late December. Later, Brown accused the Saints of auditioning him as a publicity stunt. It’s fair to say the Saints were not wild about the PR backlash of meeting with Brown, who came to the workout with a full camera crew in tow.

Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, continues to insist that teams are interested, though they are waiting for the NFL’s investigation to wrap before signing him. This latest social media outburst probably won’t speed up the process, nor will it garner sympathy from the league office.

Brown has caught 841 passes for 11,253 yards over the course of his ten-year career, which includes seven Pro Bowl appearances. At this rate, he might never add to that stat sheet again.

    His talent is undeniable. Sadly his lack of common sense is undeniable as well. This is what happens when you fail to surround yourself with people who truly care about you and have your best interests in mind. He needs tough love. It’s not surprising anymore and just plain sad.

    • Senioreditor

      I think mental illness also plays a significant part of his problems.

        • Senioreditor

          Well since he’s been exhibiting bizarre behavior for many years I’ll assume mental illness but I’m sure numerous significant blows to the head haven’t helped.

      • gozurman1

        The same number of years that Brady Did. They both used the same helmet and used it until they both had to give it up at the same time.

  2. goldenmisfit

    Not one to agree with brown but you know what comes along with him if you add him to your team and you bring him in for a work out anyway. That surely sounds like a publicity stunt.

    • puddles

      Yes and no. They probably knew they’d get some backlash… but the article states that he showed up with his own camera crew. I’d be annoyed too.

      • jkoms57

        Exactly.
        Kind of like the dems citing abuse of power while abusing their power to impeach.
        AB sites publicity stunt while showing up with a tv crew to create a circus around a simple workout

    • Coach Him

      Exactly. Shut up, train, and be ready to play football if that’s what you really want to do. Stop picking up hood rats and find yourself an educated woman with her own money and bang the hell out of it and make sure you can’t reproduce AB.

      • Rocket32

        Coach Him You really think an educated woman with her own money would want this clown? If a woman had her own money she wouldn’t need him for his and he’s clearly not right mentally, plus he doesn’t exactly make himself look very educated either. Women like that can easily do better then an insane uneducated former athlete.

    he more then likely had mental health issues before the NFL and would not shock me if the head trauma from playing in the NFL only made matters worse.

      • gozurman1

        Yes, has had issues since high school. Did not acquire Affluenza that early but developed into that over the years. Just thought he was way to special to deal with the rules of life that most of us little people have to deal wtih

    • The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

      He was such a nut even in high school, that Florida State kicked him out before he even officially enrolled. Then he left North Carolina Tech before landing at Central Michigan. That’s how insane he’s been his whole life.

      I’ve heard people who knew him growing up and they said he was always a crazed, racist, loonbat that was uncontrollable. His mom threw him out of the house.

      The real miracle is that Mike Tomlin kept this hidden and under wraps for so long. That guy is Houdini.

      • Polish Hammer

        Exactly, but it’s en Vogue to blame everything on CTE when he’s been a mess all of his life.

    • DarkSide830

      saying he has medical issues is essentially giving him a free pass. this is all on him. lumping him in with individuals that have serious health issues is well offensive to them.

  4. TJECK109

    And there we go, Edelman took his spotlight so AB needed to step up his game

    • Polish Hammer

      Except Edelman jumped a good and caught a misdemeanor. He has the cash to pay for that hood, and I’m sure many here would love to smash some jerks hood.

  5. TJECK109

    Seems to miss the part about AB throwing penis shaped gummies toward officers

    • gozurman1

      Actually was throwing them at his baby mama. He then disparaged the police when they did arrive because they did not immediately arrest her like he kept insisting that they should.

      • gozurman1

        Speaking of which, who keeps such gummy candies around the house when you have several young children? I know when my wife and I started having kids, we changed a lot in our lives, putting the kids first and quick going out so much, quit drinking so much even at home, etc. Shows that he never grew up.

    • compassrose

      Of all that went on the gummies were the thing that made me wonder where did he get them and why did he have them? His behavior didn’t surprise me the gummies did.

  6. Black Ace57

    I almost have to applaud his dedication in trying to do everything to make himself as unsignable as possible.

    • spareman7

      I think your right. He doesn’t want to play so what better way not to. Keep being a complete idiot. Then you can sue the league for a few bucks. He’s probably afraid to play now.

  7. The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

    To anyone who said it was Roethlisberger and/or Tomlin’s fault that the AB relationship didn’t work out, please eat a big plate of crow….

    How long until the money runs out and AB files his Kaepernick lawsuit against the NFL for “conspiring to keep him out”? 6 months? 3 months?

  8. Wise Old Owl

    I watched and listened to the video. He is an angry man with unhealed, childhood trauma that has followed him into adulthood. He as no respect for women or law enforcement. Sadly, his life is all about himself and is self importance.

    • Wise Old Owl

      …and I forgot to mention his lack of education based on his ghetto usage of the English language. He claimed to be a professional, but not in deed or word.

    • morejohn1

      He sounded drunk or high on the video.
      And why would you post that in public?

  9. forwhomjoshbelltolls

    This is not hard to understand.

    He was a dumb guy to begin with and now he has CTE on top of it.

  10. The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

    Another question I have: would Drew Rosenhaus respresent Satan if he thought there was some money in it for him?

    How he sticks by AB is mind boggling. Didn’t he fire Johnny Manziel as a client?

    • Rocket32

      The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla A lot easier of a decision to drop Manziel then AB. Manziel wasn’t a top NFL QB, AB’s been a top WR for years. If AB ever manages to get his act together enough for a team to sign him there’s still money to be made for the agent.

  11. Birdman1182

    what’s it gonna take to get this clown admitted to the psych ward?!?

  12. crosseyedlemon

    Looking forward to the Fritz Pollard Alliance listing him as a worthy coaching candidate after he retires as a player…lol.

  13. af1257

    The fact that AB has never learned from his transgressions is amazing. To quote Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” He needs to show regret for his mistakes, and that he can grow from them. Until that time it’s hard to see any NFL owner taking a chance on him. Too bad, amazing talent and likely Hall of Fame bound before all this started .

    • The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

      Mr. Big Chest. Or the Artist Formerly Known as AB.

  14. Phil253

    Hey @ Zach Links why exactly was this picture chosen for the article? Considering the accusations levied against him and his treatment of women in general why choose a picture of him with 3 underage girls? Seems kinda tone deaf.

    • partyatnapolis

      i kept scrolling through the comments waiting for someone to say this. seriously a horrible choice in photograph lol

  15. InvalidUserID

    Before his last season with the Steelers, all I knew about AB was his on-field talent. Sadly all of that is overshadowed with everything that has come to light over the past year or so. I don’t know his mental health before he arrived in Oakland but it’s really disturbing. I hope he gets help.

  16. ahale224

    There’s clearly a lot of moving parts here, but this is exhibit A for why the league threw the book at Burfict. I know there’s no proof of that as the cause, but this guy can’t be this clueless without cte playing a role right?

  17. nutznboltz

    The Raiders and the Patriots should absolutely be ashamed of themselves for signing this guy.He didn’t become this way overnight. They knew he was this disgusting human being and they signed him anyway. Their fans should be in an uproar for their franchises having such little integrity. If my team signed someone like that I’d find another team.
