Antonio Brown again states that he will never play in the NFL again
The Antonio Brown saga continues. It has really spiraled out of control too.
Now the superstar wide receiver has taken to Twitter to announce that he wants to clear his name. At the same time though, he claims he is never going to play in the NFL again.
Antonio Brown said in a profanity-filled tweet that he wants the NFL to "clear my name" but reiterated that he'll "never play" again in the league that he said treats black players unfairly. https://t.co/R0bV8wmGp4

What’s crazy to think about is how fast this has all come about.
Yes, Brown has always been a little eccentric. Most people probably would’ve said it was all in good fun not that long ago though. Seriously, just last year Brown was the best wide receiver in football putting up monster numbers for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Then he forced his way out of Pittsburgh in the offseason. Brown was traded to the Oakland Raiders and forced his way out of there before even playing in a game.
There was the helmet situation, the frostbite, posting his fine and leaking a conversation with head coach Jon Gruden.
For a brief moment, people thought he might have been a genius and did it all on purpose so he could go play with the New England Patriots (the team that picked him up). After he was released by them after playing just one game though, that seems much less likely.
Brown hasn’t played for a team since then, and has been throwing out some classic Twitter tantrums. This one ranks right up there with the best of them. There is cursing, declarations and accusations – the big three.
There is still a lot to come out of this situation. For all we know, Brown has hit the nail on the head with a lot of stuff he said. Or he could just be yelling about nothing. We’ll have to wait and see while the situation unfolds some more.
Are Antonio Brown’s NFL playing days really done though? It will be interesting to see if that’s true. Maybe he gives Vince McMahon and the XFL a call.
