Antonio Brown has not been a part of the NFL since his sideline tirade and walkoff while playing with the Tampa Bay Bucs last season. The Buccaneers did not show any eagerness to get Brown back nor has any team expressed any desire to bring him on their squad.
However, the notorious WR showed interest in joining the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month.
“Tell Jerry Jones to call me!”
On Thursday, TMZ Sports followed up with Jones and the longtime Dallas Cowboys owner quickly brushed off the idea, saying he wants to give some younger wideouts a chance to show their stuff.
“We’re good,” Jones said of AB’s interest. “But, we want to give these young guys a real chance to compete.”
If Jerry Jones doesn’t want you, then you know you are a problem.
In addition to the loss of Amari Cooper via trade, the Cowboys will also be without Michael Gallup and James Washington to start their 2022 campaign. Lead wideout CeeDee Lamb is also currently dealing with a minor foot injury.
Not even that was bad enough for Jones to seek out Brown.
Before he walked off the field against the Jets, Brown logged 545 yards and four touchdowns through seven games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
