The 2020 NFL league year is here, and troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown is still in the unemployment line, to the surprise of no one. That was expected given the sexual assault allegations against him and his troublesome behavioral issues he himself has documented for all to see. No matter how much Brown says he's changed, he immediately contradicts himself by making boisterous claims on social media.
On Sunday, AB took to Instagram Live to let his millions of followers know that he's the best receiver in the game, and he did so by laughably calling out Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons.
Brown couldn't be more wrong on this one.
Yes, when looking at the stat sheet, Brown does have more touchdowns in the past five years (47) than Jones (31). Even so, Brown gets slaughtered in terms of receiving yards. Jones has a whopping 7,795 yards to his name compared to Brown's 6,004.
Jones is an absolute monster on the field. He can bully defensive backs to make contested catches and make them look foolish when running his routes.
More importantly, Jones is quiet and keeps to himself when he's not playing on a gridiron. On that account, there can simply be no comparison.
While Brown was a beast in his own right, he just can't stay out of trouble. And that's why he can't get a job in the NFL right now. Hell, even buddy Tom Brady won't be able to convince Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians into signing him.
Brown wanted attention, and he sure did get it -- by making himself look like a fool. Again.
