To some folks out there, it looks like the AB-New England connection isn't dead yet. Believe it or not, someone has actually started a petition for the Patriots to bring the wideout back after Brown expressed his desire to return to the team.

At the time of this writing, the petition has over 1,200 signatures with the goal set at 1,500, which shouldn't be hard to reach at all given the franchise's popularity. The petition creator has bought into what Brown is selling, citing the $9 million cap hit that New England would suffer if Brown wins his grievance with the team as a key reason to bring the seven-time Pro Bowler back.

Brown's social media presence is certainly nauseating, as he tweeted out that he was done with the NFL not even a month ago. He claimed the game needs him and now he's like a lost pup begging to come back.

Brown is out of the league because he's been nothing but a distraction, and even all the talent that he possesses isn't enough to change that. The Patriots made the right move by cutting Brown. Bringing him back would be a major mistake.
