Antonio Brown retires from NFL, again

Antonio Brown did not leave the NFL on the best terms the first time around. His final stint in the NFL before his multiple retirements was a little rocky to say the least. He got traded to the Raiders and never showed up to practice. When he did he constantly complained about how he couldn’t see in the safer helmets. Helmets that help prevent concussions. Something Antonio Brown has definitely dealt with.


The helmet issue wasn’t even the craziest part of the Antonio Brown Saga. At one point he froze off the bottom of his feet in a cryogenic vat. He was accused of sexual assault. He assaulted an employee of a moving company and live streamed the arrest of his baby mamma. Safe to say Brown had some serious mental issues that he needed to work out before returning to football. In January it seemed the saga had come to a close. Brown was granted bail after being arrested on the grounds that he attend court mandated therapy. Once that was announced the hype train for Antonio Brown’s NFL return began.

A bunch of teams could use help at the wide receiver position. Brown would have been a solid addition in Green Bay, or in Seattle, or Houston, hell he could even go back and play more than one game with New England. Except that Brown is walking away from the NFL. He thinks the risk is greater than the reward.

at this point the risk is greater than the reward thank you everyone who been part of this journey i sincerely thank you for everything! life goes on 84! — AB (@AB84) July 20, 2020
