Former Jaguars and Raiders coach Jack Del Rio is all set to take his talents into the media this year and he started off with a bang when discussing the Raiders newest acquisition.
The former Raiders head coach took some time to speak on what he thinks of Antonio Brown and the drama he caused in Pittsburgh and how it will continue in Oakland and eventually in Las Vegas when the team moves.
“I love the talent, but [Antonio Brown] has clearly shown that he’s going to be a pain in the ass,” Del Rio tells NFL.com. “He’s a very talented guy and I would love to have him. I would work with him no problem. If [players] have talent, you tend to tolerate it a little bit unless it becomes disruptive to your team. He’s going to have to learn that to really help the team. If he continues doing the things he’s been doing, just like he upset the Steelers, he’s going to upset the next team he’s on. There are certain things — I mean, this is America and he’s free to do what he wants — but those aren’t the things that are indicative of a good teammate. The working hard and being a good player definitely helps the team, which is why he’ll continue to get chances to be special until his skills deteriorate. That’s when people will get tired of him.”
Many people have grown tired of Brown’s antics, especially after he decided to to randomly call out former teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster for no apparent reason on Twitter last week.
Only time will tell if the drama in Pittsburgh continues in a different city with Brown.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
