As if Brown couldn’t be extra detested by most people, he’s determined to pile onto former teammate and apparently former pal Tom Brady, who went to bat for Brown on two totally different groups. In each situations, Brown was booted for offensive conduct, first for sexual misconduct allegations after which for disrespecting the Buccaneers teaching workers mid-game. In some way, Brown has twisted Brady’s willingness to assist as a willingness to take advantage of Brown, so now Brown is callously exploiting Brady’s private life for literal revenue: by promoting merch of Brown embracing Brady’s ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen.
In a latest interview, Brown responded to a line of direct questioning on the matter along with his common nonsensical evasiveness, stating that his “parodie” t-shirt options “a picture that actually occurred.”

Brown has made it clear that he’s mocking Brady’s divorce on social media a number of instances, however as soon as once more, espouses nonsense when confronted about his intentions.
And as soon as once more, Payments followers are grateful when reminded that they “dodged a nuclear warhead” by failing to commerce for Antonio Brown. In an alternate actuality, maybe Brown would have been locked right into a pricey Payments contract and will have been dragging Josh Allen as a substitute for perceived slights.
The Payments actually dodged a nuclear warhead when Antonio Brown refused to return right here. Like holy shit.

Payments franchise dodged a bullet by failing to commerce for Antonio Brown
Payments followers keep in mind this second fondly and are fast to deliver it up at any time when Antonio Brown is trending for all of the improper causes.
NFL Mocks’ Sayre Bedinger famous final yr that “the Buffalo Payments are an awesome instance that typically the deal you don’t make is the most effective one in your franchise.”
On March 7, 2019, reviews emerged that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Payments had been engaged on a deal that may ship Brown to the Payments for substantial draft capital.

Context is vital, although. This was after Josh Allen’s rookie season, and his receivers had been Zay Jones, Robert Foster, and Isaiah McKenzie, as Bedinger famous.
The lineup didn’t look nice on the time, however the Payments would end up to have the final giggle. The Payments have the quarterback of the longer term in Allen, entered the season as the first Tremendous Bowl favourite, introduced in Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs along with Gabe Davis, and have quickly develop into one of many NFL’s premier passing offenses.
It might have been powerful on the time to show down what was nonetheless the NFL’s finest receiver, however cooler heads prevailed on this one.
As for AB, he did certainly get a Tremendous Bowl ring to spherical out an illustrious profession on the sector. It’s his profession off the sector that makes this loss an general win for Payments Mafia.
