Sometimes, you just need one influential figure to turn your career around.
Needless to say, we hope that this is the case for Antonio Brown, who was recently spotted working out with Deion Sanders.
In an Instagram post, Sanders showed his support of Brown, claiming that he can't wait to watch his comeback story in the NFL, and that he loves the former Steelers star receiver "to life."
The seven-time Pro Bowler likely still has enough game left to dominate on the field, accumulating over 100 receptions and 1,200 yards in six straight seasons, prior to the last empty campaign "split" between Oakland and New England. However, his off-the-field troubles, lingering domestic violence accusation, and disastrous attitude have realistically blacklisted him from NFL action.
Hopefully, Sanders can help mentor Brown to get his head in the right space to once again dominate on the field. The four-time First Team All-Pro has been honing in his skills and grinding all offseason in hopes of a return to football.
For now, Brown will have to wait. Once all coaches and players are allowed back in their facilities, Brown may get a few calls about evaluations of his physical and mental state. Until then, he has to keep improving himself in all facets, and hopefully Sanders serves as a proper guide, something he hasn't had in quite a while.
