It was never going to be an option for Antonio Brown to head over into the XFL. Despite him screwing himself out of $40 million, he’ll still get another shot in the league to make millions compared to the $55K players could make in the reboot of the XFL.
That still didn’t stop people from trolling the former New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver. The XFL Draft took place earlier this week, which prompted a fan account named @realxflfootball to troll him about “being free.”
Fans likely thought it was real, so they trolled Brown in the comments.
Brown has no desire to play in the XFL, as he stated during an Instagram live video he did a few weeks back.
“XFL, never,” Brown said. “That’s not even in the question.”
He has plans to go back to the Patriots.
“You guys that follow the Patriots, tell them to call me,” Brown said. “They’ve still got to pay me, so might as well let me earn it.”
