In all likelihood, Antonio Brown has played his last game in the NFL. The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has a Hall of Fame resume but his antics on and off the field have alienated the league. When Brown was with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he was known as a diva but things got out of control after he was traded to the Raiders.
The wide receiver started a series of controversies almost immediately, including to referring to former Raiders general manager Mike Mayock as a “cracker,” after joining the team and was cut before ever playing a game. That was a huge disaster for the Raiders as they traded third and fifth-round draft picks to get him and made him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. Even though Brown is essentially out of the league, he’s still up to his old antics. He released a statement on Twitter talking about his biggest regret, which has nothing to do with all of the controversial things he’s done:
My biggest regret in my career doesn’t involve calling my GM a ‘cracker,’ or showing up to Raiders camp late in a hot air balloon with frozen feet, or throwing rocks at that UPS driver, and it definitely doesn’t involve taking my shirt off and doing a victory lap around the Jets stadium mid game while throwing up deuces,” the spoof quote stated.
My biggest regret is that I’ll never get to see me, Antonio Brown, play a game live. Sure, I can watch the game afterwards, but I can’t imagine what that was like for you all to see something like that. Like watching the Beatles or Jesus perform at Red Rocks.
