The saga of Antonio Brown seems to never end as the latest twist has been revealed. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the former All-Pro wideout is looking to clear up his off the field issues to open up the possibility of an NFL return in 2019.
Overall this is complete 180 from last month when Brown took to social media claiming he was done playing in the NFL. Although that comment was tracked back a few days later by his agent Drew Rosenhaus the Tweet remains online.
Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !— AB (@AB84) September 22, 2019
If Brown wishes to return to the football field it is unclear if he is willing to do so before the results of his eight grievances are settled. Brown is seeking money from the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders that totals close to $40 million. Brown has taken to social media in recent days issuing a desire to return to the Patriots.
“They still gotta pay me,” Brown said on his Instagram account. “They might as well let me earn it.”
Although the Patriots offense could certainly use a weapon like Brown the chances of them offering to bring him back in is zero. This time around things are a little bit different with Brown taking a shot at New England’s owner Robert Kraft on his way out of town. The Tweet in which Brown referenced Kraft in has been taken down but his reference to Kraft’s massage parlor incident makes this reunion a complete fantasy.
Brown has yet to be interviewed by the NFL for the multiple off the field problems he is dealing with and until that happens it is highly unlikely that a team would sign him. If he is signed by a team the NFL could place him on the Commissioners Exempt List.
