When the New England Patriots released Antonio Brown just eleven days after signing him, they may have been a chance that he could rejoin them sometime in the future as he took to Twitter and thanked them while posting several Patriots related pictures during his short time there.
That all ended when he would soon take to Twitter and throw shots at owner Robert Kraft, suggesting that he has yet to receive punishment for the Orchids of Asia scandal, while Brown has been criticized for his own legal woes. That was his attempt to outline a clear double standard.
Brown was likely pissed after finding out he wasn’t going to get his guaranteed money that he signed for.
Despite that, someone thought it would a good idea to start a petition to get the franchise to give Brown another chance.
The petition reads as:
“It is clear to Patriots Nation that Tom Brady was excited to have him and upset when he was released. The offense has struggled at times and the 42 year old greatest qb of all time needs a receiver of Brown’s caliber to take the offense to a level we haven’t seen since 2007. Along with that historic defense, there is no telling what this team will be able to accomplish this season.
Antonio Brown was signed by the Patriots for a $1 Million salary with a $9 Million sign on bonus. It is evident that Brown will likely win his grievance with the Patriots over that bonus which means the Patriots suffer a $9 Million cap hit this year.
Antonio Brown should publicly apologize for his tweet about Mr Kraft. AB also needs to make sure all future actions and social media posts adhere to professional standards ie “The Patriots Way.”
Mr. Kraft should allow Bill Belichick to bring him back on a conditional basis. Whatever Coach Belichick and the organization requires in the new deal to feel comfortable allowing him to return to practice and represent the Patriots, those conditions need to be strictly adhered to by Antonio Brown.
We as fans want to see Antonio Brown back on the team and witness the Patriots go 19-0 to make up for the great injustice that occurred at the end of the 07 season.”
Shockingly, the petition has garnered over 1,300 signatures so far.
Brown going back to New England is highly unlikely, and him getting back on the field this season is even up in the air as the league continues to investigate sexual assault claims against him.
