The beginning of the 2019 NFL season was overshadowed on Thursday by reports by ESPN's Adam Schefter regarding a looming suspension for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown.
After posting a photo of his letter from general manager Mike Mayock regarding a recent fine, AB and the front office executive got into a heated exchange. In the altercation, Brown reportedly threatened to punch Mayock in the face before punting a football on the practice field.
With speculation about the Raiders potentially voiding Brown's $30 million in guaranteed money or even cutting ties with the player entirely, the internet freaked out of one subsequent possibility. That's right, Antonio Brown joining the New England Patriots.
Ah, yes, we can't wait for the Patriots to send a seventh-round pick in exchange for Antonio Brown... and a seventh-round pick. Belichick always finds a way to work his magic, doesn't he?
The Patriots have done it before by snatching Randy Moss from the Raiders, and the receiver put up record-setting numbers in his first season with Tom Brady.
38? More like 380.
You know it's gonna happen, right?
Who knows if the New England Patriots would even attempt to bring in Antonio Brown, given he brings enough drama to fill a full season of a soap opera. But with today's NFL fans, they always have that thought deep in the back of their head that the Patriots will find a way to get even better than they already are.
