Latest On Antonio Brown

A Florida judge has ordered Antonio Brown to turn over text messages and other evidence pertaining to a woman who has accused him of rape and sexual assault in a civil suit (Twitter link via Tom Pelissero of NFL.com). At the same time, the judge refused to mandate a psychiatric evaluation for Brown.

The free agent wide receiver has seven games to go on his eight-game ban from the NFL. That suspension stems from two separate and unrelated incidents and the league has indicated that Brown could face additional discipline for any new evidence that may emerge.

It’s not a given that Brown will get an opportunity to return to the field upon reinstatement. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and Seahawks star Russell Wilson both lobbied for Brown this summer, but both clubs ultimately decided to pass on him. For what it’s worth, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told reporters in July that he’s willing “look at any and every player” and that Brown is “no exception.”

Over the course of his ten-year career, Brown tallied 841 receptions for 11,253 yards and seven Pro Bowl appearances. Not long ago, Brown was regarded as a surefire Hall of Famer and one of the game’s most dangerous offensive talents. At this point, no one would be surprised if the 32-year-old never plays again.

        Until he goes to jail or a psych hold, then I will be happy he is getting the care he needs

          Legal holds vary from state to state, but are typically utilized when someone is a danger to themselves, a danger to others, or gravely disabled.

          I don’t disagree with you that TX and Rx may help, but a legal hold is quite unlikely.

          I am curious about any personality disorder he may get diagnosed with which doesn’t happen without extensive observation.

      You’d care if your team signed him and that team became instantly better

        Hard pass. Id be mad at my team for signing him.

        I’d rather sign a receiver who’s a team player, contributes on special teams, willing to block, and do the dirty work who may not necessarily put up big numbers but contributes in all facets of the game instead of Brown.

        The Raiders didn’t become instantly better.

        The Patriots didn’t become instantly better.

        The only reason, as a GM, to sign this guy would be if you wanted to look like a fool and/or get yourself fired.

    Rape is quite the claim! I hope he didn’t do it. And I hope his texts are not leaked to the public.

    I assume a psychological look into the mind of Antonio Brown would have the “Space the Final Frontier” theme from Star Trek playing in the background.

    As a Steelers fan, I was so happy he left. He needs help, great player but he isn’t a team player.
