Patriots sign WR Antonio Brown hours after his release by Raiders

Recommended Posts

a team has the ability to sign whoever they want, wife beaters, violent criminals , repeated PED's users and so called cancers in the locker room. If the team that signs the player gets them to play well as well as be a decent citizen, whats wrong with that?  I suppose everyone deserves another chance according to some, and I am starting to think he wanted to go to the pats for a while, got tired of losing with the steelers and went about getting to the pats this way.  Imagine if he actually told BB this and thats why he got signed quickly for that much? We will see as the season goes on, if he doesn't act upon, then it was probably his plan the entire time.  

Did he even consider any other teams ?

1 year, 15 million. Okay, I'm shocked about that. 

No way! Not after all the crap!

New England is where he wanted to be all along. AB and Drew both have connections there. When Pitts first gave AB permission, they both called multiple people in New England. 

AB never planned to play a down with Oakland. Never. 

The soft as butter discipline from the Raiders and the league let this happen.

I 100% think this, at least by the time camp hit.  After awhile it honestly felt like AB was intentionally doing what he had to do to get out.

I'm sure the first contact between NE and AB's camp happened this afternoon.

Is a league suspension possible (precedented) for his comments to Mayock? 

I think it's possible, don't think that it's likely / going to happen.

This was a weirder manipulation to get on a team than Favre to the Vikings (via the Jets).

But the same motivations in each case.

Well, that’s literally something you can’t possibly know

Ask Randy Moss - a SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER WR - how that worked out for him.

I know I'm probably ignorant but can someone please explain why he wouldn't be eligible to play this week? I've seen people get signed the day before a game before and play the next day so what's different about this?
