Antonio Brown wanted to play for Patriots since before Steelers traded him

Adjust Comment Print

The Patriots got off to a solid start on Sunday night, making a statement in front of the home crowd after embarrassing the Steelers with a 33-3 win at Gillette Stadium.

"I'm not anxious about him", Roethlisberger said of Moncrief. "This is really no risk".

Struggling in New England is nothing new for the Steelers.

Melifonwu was inactive for Sunday's New England victory over Pittsburgh after dealing with an ankle injury during the week and being limited in practice. That the Patriots would go after one of the best players in the National Football League at his position isn't a surprise, but Brown's outspokenness and history of drama with the teams that employ him makes him appear a hard fit in Foxborough unless he changes his behavior. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was blunt about taking blame, saying he wasn't good enough.

Considering the Raiders reportedly tried to trade AB a few days before releasing him, why wouldn't the Patriots have offered at least a late pick to get him... if, of course, they already didn't have a good idea that they were going to get him. "So, it was great getting him the ball, seeing him score like that, and you can't forget about him because he can run through the defense and make a lot of plays with the ball in his hands". Brown has 74 touchdowns and 11,207 yards in his career, and any team needs that. You guessed it - the Patriots. He then had it out with general manager Mike Mayock and allegedly threatened to punch him in the face before turning around and apologizing to his team and putting the thought in everyone's mind he would play for the Raiders.

The bill is now with the House of Lords, which has committed to passing it before Friday, September 6. President Donald Trump, and compared him to a 3-year-old toddler having a tantrum.

There was never any doubt in any of his attempts, all of which hit right down the middle. In 2017, the Pats signed James Harrison the day after he forced his release from (once again) the Steelers. They are also looking for their seventh title overall. Just maybe they will meet later in the postseason. And the Foxborough fates of Gordon and Brown have yet to play out. Not in New England. "You have to sacrifice finances, you have to sacrifice your stats, you have to sacrifice a lot of individual things".

Per Field Yates, the Patriots waived safety Obi Melifonwu and cut veteran tight end Lance Kendricks to free up a roster spot for Antonio Brown.

We can make excuses all we want, but the fact of the matter is that there is a reason this guy is on his 3rd team in 3 years.

"Yeah, no", Belichick, who twice successfully shot down questions about Brown throughout his press conference, said the first time he was asked for a comment on Brown.

Brown was not present in the locker room during the period open to reporters on Monday.
