Patriots Are Soulless if They Actually Muster up the Gall to Re-Sign Antonio Brown

It is unfortunately possible that the melodrama between Antonio Brown and the New England Patriots has NOT entirely run its course.

Boston radio station WEEI 93.7 dropped a bombshell report on Thursday which claimed that the Patriots have held discussions about brining the embattled wideout back to Foxborough. It's since been disputed, but we simply can't know for sure just yet.

New England caught a lot of flack for holding onto Brown as long as they did the first time around. If they really do reverse course and run it back with him despite multiple sexual assault allegations against him, they would become the kind of abomination that the NFL simply cannot abide.

Isn't it ironic that the initial WEEI report dropped a few days after Mr. Big Chest apologized to Robert Kraft on Instagram for repeatedly attacking him when the Patriots cut ties?

Naturally, we can't put anything past the Pats. Not yet, anyway. But we don't care that Phillip Dorsett (concussion) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are banged up. AB is toxic. It's just too soon. There's too much emotional scar tissue built up.

There is a plethora of pundits who thoroughly believe that Brown shouldn't play in the NFL again. At the very least, he should continue waiting in purgatory until his rape lawsuit has resolved itself one way or another.

New England needs to show some kind of moral compass here.
