Deion Sanders delivers powerful message to Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown is attempting to make a return to the NFL in 2020 despite his off-the-field antics in recent seasons. While spending time with Deion Sanders, the Hall of Fame cornerback delivered a powerful message to Brown.
Sanders is glad AB never got to that point and commends him for getting help.

Back when Sanders began his career with the Atlanta Falcons in 1989, he was known to be a player that wasn’t afraid to speak his mind. Whether it was on or off of the field, Sanders was the center of attention.
As a result of his star power and ability to make plays on the field, Sanders was dubbed the nickname “Prime Time”. However, while the nickname became part of his character, the former All-Pro highlights how it consumed him during his career.
In recent years, Antonio Brown has continually allowed his ego to get in the way of his playing career. Not to mention, he’s had multiple run-ins with the law, including an alleged assault on a truck driver.
Last offseason, Brown was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Las Vegas Raiders. It didn’t take long for Brown to be released by the Raiders after causing a circus with the organization. He would sign with the New England Patriots, only to be released after one game with the Patriots.
Nevertheless, after seeing the damage he has caused, Brown appears to have gotten help, something that Sanders commends him for doing. Even though he turns 32 years old in July, Brown could undoubtedly be of huge help for a team in need of a wide receiver.
Though, it remains to be seen, despite working out with Sanders, if a team is willing to risk giving Brown another chance. Regardless of whether or not he plays again, hopefully Brown is in the right mindset now.
