Antonio Brown is not the first diva wide receiver to ever play in the NFL. It seems to go with the position, but he may be the first wideout with some prime years left to get released from his new team before ever actually playing in a regular season game for them.
Even Terrell Owens didn't do that.
ESPN's Josina Anderson talked with the Hall of Fame receiver and T.O. had some interesting things to say following the AB release. Owens seems to think he's owed an apology, as well as some money and a new contract.
During his NFL career, Owens was very much a distraction, but nothing he did approached the levels of pure wildness that Brown has exhibited over the past few months.
Throughout his career, Owens never stayed put for more than a handful of seasons. He played for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.
He may think he had more left in the tank, but there's a reason the Seattle Seahawks released him less than three weeks after signing him.
Even though Owens was hard to deal with, he didn't do half the stuff AB did during his short stint with Oakland. He was no role model, but T.O.'s drama never came close to matching what we've seen out of AB.
