Patriots Take a Risk on Signing Antonio Brown Because They Can

Patriots Take a Risk on Signing Antonio Brown Because They Can Bill Belichick and the Patriots have taken on plenty of other players with issues. Some work out and some don't, with no real consequence to the team’s overall reputation or success.

Antonio Brown is going to spoil all those grand plans the NFL had for its 100th birthday. The league wanted this season to be a six-month celebration Which means the NFL and the Patriots are stuck with this never-ending sideshow. No matter how many times Belichick tries to stonewall and say the

Antonio Brown hasn’t just crashed the NFL’s 100th birthday party, he’s hijacked it.

The league planned on this season being a six-month celebration of its best games, biggest names and most iconic moments. Instead, it’s going to be all about AB, and there’s not a damn thing the NFL, the New England Patriots or even the iron-handed Bill Belichick can do about it.

Brown’s former trainer accused the receiver of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Florida. It’s far too soon to make a judgment on the allegations; there are text messages that, if authentic, are troubling, while Brown’s attorney called the allegations a “money grab” and said any sexual encounters were consensual.

Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 2

Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 2 The 2019 NFL season kicked off in grand style, and Week 2 will be no different. Let’s take a peek at some players destined to shine and some who will lose their luster on game day. Stud: Lamar Jackson, quarterback, Baltimore Ravens Was it a fluke that Jackson absolutely annihilated the Miami Dolphins with a five-touchdown performance to launch off Week 1? It may have been. However, Jackson has an excellent chance to pile up some big numbers again when the Arizona Cardinals come to town. The Cardinals had no answers for stopping Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who threw for three touchdowns and 385 yards.

Antonio Brown played only one game for the Patriots , catching four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Brown had his interview with the NFL last Thursday in South Florida and PFT reported earlier this week that there is optimism in Brown ’ s camp that the league will clear him to return before

It will be weeks, and more likely months, before there’s any resolution to the lawsuit. Which means the NFL and the Patriots are stuck with this never-ending sideshow.

No matter how many times Belichick tries to stonewall and say the Patriots are on to whoever they’re playing that week, it won’t stop the questions about Brown. Anytime Commissioner Roger Goodell appears in public, he’ll be asked for an update on the wide receiver or to assess the various possible outcomes.

At every game and every practice, Brown will be under a microscope, his body language and interactions with Tom Brady and Belichick assessed and debated for even the slightest hint of trouble or discord.

Have the Patriots not learned anything by now?

Have the Patriots not learned anything by now? They shouldn’t even entertain the prospect of playing Antonio Brown until more is learned.

Opinion: Antonio Brown won't play in the NFL again, because his trouble outweighs his talent. Agent Drew Rosenhaus can send out all the delusional tweets he wants, and Brown can respond to his release from the New England Patriots as calmly as if this were just another case of a couple growing

NFL ' s worst betting seasons of the Super Bowl Era. Adam Schefter proclaims that now that the Patriots have cut Antonio Brown , it could be a "kiss of death" for Brown 's career. With his release, Brown becomes an unrestricted free agent eligible to sign with any team. The NFL released a statement Friday night that said Brown would not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list while

And that's assuming Brown doesn't create any new dramas. Good luck with that.

The NFL had to have hoped the AB circus would fold its tents once he signed with the Patriots. Belichick doesn’t make allowances for anyone, even Brady, and the assumption was that Brown would toe the line just as Randy Moss and Chad Johnson did.

Anybody who really believed that hasn’t been paying attention the last six months. Heck, just the last six days should have been enough.

The Oakland Raiders thought they had the deal of the century when they acquired Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers for what was essentially a bag of footballs. But the Raiders soon found out there’s a price to pay for Brown’s colossal talents.

First it was the cryotherapy gone wrong, which left Brown with frost-bitten feet. Then it was the holdout over not being able to wear his beloved but outdated helmet. No sooner had that been resolved than Brown threw a tantrum over fines imposed by general manager Mike Mayock.

There’s More History to Antonio Brown’s History

There’s More History to Antonio Brown’s History Accusations range from a previously untold account of sexual misconduct, a charity auction theft, multiple domestic incidents, and a long list of unpaid debts. Numerous conversations with people who have dealt with Brown, as well as reviews of court and police documents from three states, paint a disturbing picture.

Antonio Brown apologized to Robert Kraft and now everyone thinks the Pats will land the WR again.

Antonio Brown Rips NFL Owners, Robert Kraft, Big Ben In Twitter Rant. Antonio Brown let loose a rant on social media on Sunday, saying he won't be playing in the NFL until the league changes its contract Former Patriots WR Antonio Brown apologized to Robert Kraft for bad media and drama.

A contrite Brown apologized to his teammates and coach Jon Gruden said he would play in Monday night’s opener. Less than 24 hours later, Brown was gone, cut after taking to Instagram and demanding the Raiders release him.

A few hours later, Brown announced he would sign with the Patriots.

“It helps everybody when you have great players that are sharing the burden of a tough football season,” Brady said Sunday night. “We’re all excited to have him.”

That was then. Now, it’s a dumpster fire threatening to suck up all of the oxygen in the NFL for the foreseeable future. Remember the Patriots’ complete rout of the Steelers? The “Can you top this?” last minute of the Texans-Saints game Monday night? Yeah. I didn’t think so.

No doubt the NFL and, probably, the Patriots are wishing they could make this all go away. But Goodell can’t suspend Brown, not without some proof there is merit to the lawsuit. If the Patriots cut Brown, they’d be out the $9 million they gave him as a signing bonus.

No league commands attention like the NFL. But it has met its match, and then some, with Antonio Brown.
