Antonio Brown released by Patriots

Recommended Posts

If his agent cares about him beyond $$$, he should get him mental health help, just like Josh Gordon sought his.

Lol sucks Antonio.. should've just shut up and played in Pitt

Heck all he had to do is shut up and played in NE.  The texts he sent got him the boot and lost him 10 million guaranteed.

If that was a thing that was ever likely to happen, I think he'd still be a Patriot.

 

As I understand it, he issued threats against his accuser early this morning.  That's more than enough to get released from any organization in football.

A leopard doesn’t change its spots. Are you really surprised? I get it, you wanted this reclamation project like some other ones to work out for your team but this one was beyond repair.

His NFL career is done. If he can’t make it with NE no team will be able to make it work.

Oh God i was happy when they signed him I was hoping he be smart and just shut up and play football.  Mind you these texts were done after he was signed.. that was a No No with the Pats.

 

mind you they didn’t need him. There are not many teams who could challenge them before well 8 or 9.

Exactly! If your an owner would you think your HC would be able to reign him in if the best HC right now couldn’t?

Guys like Ramsey are one thing.  I honestly think Ramsey started agitating for a trade mostly because he was afraid he was in danger of wasting his prime in a bad situation.  There was a rationality behind his decision to want a trade.  It was selfish, but it was there. Ramsey at least mostly has his head down and is focused on getting himself into a good situation.  He knows where the line is and mostly stays on the right side of it. 


Brown is just insane at this point.  I'm not even sure he knows what he wants, and he has zero self control.  Brown doesn't care where the line is and hasn't for years.  He just shot his way out of 2 different good situations because he couldn't keep his mouth closed.  May he enjoy living in the Kaepernick Zone.

Wait! There are rules? Boundaries? Expectations?

And they apply, to various degrees, to everyone?

I am actually proud of the Pats for doing this. Brown thinks he is above the NFL, that is clear to most. He dissed the Steelers and Raiders. He is a Diva and has sexual assault allegations against him. It took a guy like Bill Belichick to say goodbye!

For Antonio Brown....you might as well be speaking Latin.

 

He is a study in narcissism like no other.

At the very very least not until these sexual assault allegations are dealt with. He's also on the backend of his prime, so if it takes some time for these to be dealt with, will teams ever want to take on that personality for anything less than top 10 WR production?

Belichick didn't screw around.  The deal was pretty clear, put one toe out of line, you're gone.  He put a toe out of line.  He's gone.  That's how good coaches and GMs work.  Everyone is accountable for their actions.

 

I like to think Ballard would have done the exact same thing.

And he really looked good catching passes from Brady.... could have been a great year for him.

Knew it wouldn't be long because they really didn't need him in the first place.  Add the rape stuff and it's a very short leash.

I like to believe BB was forced to read him the released text messages.   Man that would be funny.

You think Bill would have said that much?  

 

I did think if anyone could reign him in it would be the Pats.  I also don't think Bill would allow any one player to disrupt the team.

 

Brown had a short leash and he had to jerk on it.

Belichick: "Is it true what I heard?"


AB: "Umm, yes coach, it's true. I threatened my accuser over the phone."


Belichick: "W-WHAT!? No, I was referring to you farting in that doctor's face! What are you talking about!?"


AB: "Oops..."

He said in Interviews he sees himself in Las Vegas playing..... No one chooses to go to that raiders team if they are worried about wasting their prime..... His motives have nothing to do with competitiveness, just watch some interviews.  He's got the smarts of a turnip.

    • A ton of rookies are getting a ton of playing time in 2019 and most of them have impressed the heck out of me. Ya-Sin, Khari, Okereke, Banogu, have all shown me something. Parris Campbell had a rough season with all the injuries, but I'm confident whenever he manages to stay on the field, he will make plays and prove to be another solid pick by CB.
    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
