Antonio Brown Breaks Twitter Silence With Comical Quote Tweet of Vancouver Canucks

Antonio Brown's release from the Oakland Raiders doesn't have to be all doom and gloom, right?

Well, the man himself doesn't seem to think so. The superstar wide receiver broke his Twitter silence on the issue on Saturday by quote tweeting a picture from the Vancouver Canucks featuring an edited photo featuring him in one of their jerseys.

Who knows, maybe he actually could find a career in another sport? The media side of football is giving him some trouble, after all. And in the big picture, it's not terribly far from the Bay Area to British Columbia.

But in all seriousness, it's intriguing to see him take such a light and humorous route on a subject that seems to be hitting close to home for him. After all, he posted a video on Friday night featuring a recording of a serious phone call with head coach Jon Gruden in what was widely seen as a bizarre, perhaps even troubling move.

And there's no shortage of teams that would be willing to give him a shot on the roster. For better or for worse, Brown is still one of the most talented skill players in all of football.

He's led the NFL in receiving yards two times in the last five years, and he has 11,207 yards to his name in his career. Add in his 75 touchdown catches, seven Pro Bowl appearances and four All-Pro selections. It's simply a no-brainer to say that he's worth taking a shot on.

Maybe this debacle has helped him turn over a new leaf. At least he already seems to be in a happy mood judging by this Canuck-tastic tweet.
