Antonio Brown's mysterious foot injury is severe frostbite

Recommended Posts

He’s a child. A very stupid child. I wish we could count on no other team signing him, but we know better.

Yeah...no team should touch him

He should sit for a year and see if he wants to play

He’ll be in New England soon.

I don't know. They take on dudes who have made mistakes, but they're usually out on dudes who are egomaniacs. The closest they've come is Ochocinco, and that failed pretty spectacularly.

Guess I’m an idiot, but I didn’t know guarantees weren’t guaranteed. Are they only in the event of injury? Teams can just cut players or remove their guarantees without having to pay them?

Chad Johnson was washed up by the time he got there. Antonio Brown is far from washed up. Big difference. After the Pats stint, he went to the Dolphins and was released then played in the CFL.

They can't cut you because you suck and not pay you. But most contracts have language about conduct detrimental, missing team activities, accumulation of fines/suspensions, etc. that void certain guarantees.

I mean, sure, if AB is willing to sign a near-minimum, non-guaranteed contract, then I'm sure New England (and 30 other teams) would love to kick the tires. But what about the last few days would suggest that he'd accept that? If he has no other options and has to play for "pennies", then teams know they're getting an angry head case willing to post any team discrepancy on social media. That doesn't sound like a Patriot.

well he played the hands going forward from the SB way the fuck better than Barry.  Holy fuck Chuckie has been paid hand over fist for sucking as a football coach.

 

He's a more sophisticated Jeff Fisher, without the constant axe to grind.

 

I wanted to see them suspend AB for his cuntiffery.   Missed opportunity...

AB is gone.

Things were going great when his hair was just that square Lego thing. The further he got from square Lego thing hair the faster things deteriorated.

I think when you hurt yourself because you are stupid and refuse to show up to work it kind of voids the contract.

Yep and playing for the league vet min 

Wait until he sees Julio Jones 3yr/$66mm extension with $64mm guaranteed. His huge ego will prevent him from signing a low ball contract.

 

In other words, don’t expect to see him playing anytime soon.

He thought he was above the law, and he was with the Steelers for most of his tenure there. But this is an egregious example of his stupidity and renegade thinking. He so pissed off the Raiders that they actually employed a technicality in his brand new contract to terminate him.  I don’t think anything like this has happened in pro sports, and so AB never thought they’d do it.

But they did, and tanked their season in the process, and will assuredly endure litigation from Brown’s camp, and they have to know that.  That’s how much they don’t want him around. It must have gotten personal with Mayock, and he might not be acting rationally. I suspect Mayock is at odds with Gruden and Davis both.

And is the only one of the 3 with any fucking sense.

He has CTE.  He's made a bunch of really bad decisions on and off the field over the past two years or so.  Someone will pick him up for sure though.  I'd say Bucs Browns or Pats.

He won’t be signed for pennies. When talented individuals piss money away, an organization that both needs him and thinks they can handle him will sign him to a lucrative deal. It will be less than he had from the Raiders, but that organization won’t risk having a disgruntled guy. No, he either is untouchable for this season, or he signs to a comfortable deal on a team that thinks they can provide him Josh Hamilton level handlers. 

It probably won’t be a major market team, and it’d be a short term deal. I bet that happens next year, though. I think he’s too hot to handle. He needs to get his head right, and needs to interview with teams and show contrition. And those teams need to believe he’s actually working on it, but not be naive that the issues will never fully go away and be okay with that risk. He can’t do this in a few weeks or months. He needs to go away for a while.

Maybe. He also might be a complete asshole. We'll probably never know.

I had not been keeping up with the real details of this, but just reading a summery this guy is a total idiot and you would have to have your head in your ass to take a risk on him

he is a social media diva and basically pissed on NFL rules (not the Stealers but the NFL) live streaming from the locker room then was pissed off when he got fined for it....oh yea and he is on the payroll for facebook hahaha

the deal with his feet I mean clearly he does not have a clue what shit he is trying or anything about basic shit like liquid nitrogen will fuck you up (or whatever they were freezing his feet with) and just said fuck it and probably wore a pair of comebak szn JFF slides into the cryo treatment

the shit with his helmet just seems like a child that you can't tell that they do not get to keep their pacifier then they are 28 years old....or some superstition bullshit

and when a guy like Terrell Owens tells you that you are being stupid and need to chill out......well you have to be acting like a total fuck head

plus he has the biggest shit bag agent in the business that has just sat back and watched all this blow up probably because he knew that a trade meant a new contract and more money for him.....and no way he gets humble and goes somewhere for even decent money with a lot of restrictions especially with the shit bag agent he has.....so the next place that signs him will be on the hook for huge money no matter how stupid he acts
