Antonio Brown’s NFL suspension is set to end soon, and he will be reuniting with Tom Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The news came down on Friday that Brown would be signing a 1-year deal to finally make his return to the field of play.
Shortly after the news, a Twitter user pondered why Brown got signed to a team, while Dez Bryant was headed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
Dez saw that tweet and responded in a classy way:
“Man it’s a blessing .. the rest will take care itself”
Bryant is attempting to become the second Pro Bowl wide receiver to miss two full seasons and then return to the NFL since the 1970 merger. Bryant’s 531 career receptions would be the most by any wide receiver before missing two full seasons and then returning to the NFL.
Brown, 32, was one of the top receivers in the NFL from 2013-2018. He spent the first part of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before pushing his way out last year. He got traded to the Raiders, who cut him after a number of antics.
He lasted just eleven days with the Patriots after more antics off the field.
