Well, it’s been a few weeks in the world of all things Antonio Brown. Just when it looked like his saga might be coming to an end, and he might actually just play in the Oakland Raiders’ silver and black Monday night, he went and got himself released.
Then, mere hours later, the unthinkable (yet somehow also the inevitable?) happened: Brown joined Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots on a one-year deal.
And rest assured, Twitter is having an absolute field day.

Wait so Antonio Brown signed with the Raiders for 30mill, starts a bunch of antics right before the season to only sign with the Patriots for 15mill. I don’t quite get it! 🤔🤦🏾♂️— Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) September 7, 2019
