It’s almost impossible to envision Antonio Brown getting another chance in the NFL, but nothing is stopping him from letting other teams know that he remains available.
Brown took to X (formerly known as “Twitter”) on Tuesday to hint at interest in returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team he played for from 2010 to 2018. This comes following the announcement that the club’s top wideout, Diontae Johnson, will be out for several weeks with a hamstring injury.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Johnson’s injury earlier in the day.
Take this message from Brown with a grain of salt. He also announced back in April that he was joining the Baltimore Ravens, but news flash: The Ravens never signed him.
Brown’s never-ending issues off the field (especially his legal problems) will likely prevent any team from wanting to sign him. He had well-documented and ugly exits from four teams (the Steelers, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers) in less than four years, so it’s hard to think any club out there will be willing to take the chance on him.
The Steelers will especially have next to no interest in bringing back Brown, who left the team ahead of their 2018 regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. His constant me-first attitude there and the constant complaining of the organization didn’t do him any favors, either.
