The New England Patriots were able to secure Antonio Brown for the 2019 season following his release from the Oakland Raiders. Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, claims that his client is ready to fit in with New England.

“I’ll just tell you that the Patriots are obviously a very solid, strong organization,” said Rosenhaus, who also represented now-retired Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. “They do things the Patriots Way. They expect everyone to be accountable. They don’t make any exceptions. I’ve discussed this with Antonio. And he wants to be a Patriot. He’s prepared to go there, fit in, work hard, be like every other player on the team, do what’s asked of him, do his job and make it work. He’s honored with the opportunity and he’s looking forward to taking advantage of it.”

Regardless of your opinion on Brown, there’s no doubt that he is one of the hardest-working players in the NFL. The All-Pro receiver came into the NFL as a sixth-round pick out of Central Michigan. Despite him being a late-round pick, he became one of the league’s best at his position.

However, Brown’s short stay with the Raiders raises some questions with how it came crashing down. Throughout training camp, the veteran receiver was constantly involved in drama that was seemingly controllable.

From frostbitten feet to getting into an altercation with general manager Mike Mayock, the Raiders said enough was enough. As a result, they released Brown and the All-Pro wideout will join the Patriots this year.

In New England, Bill Belichick preaches the “Patriot Way” that makes players buy-in to doing what’s best for the team. For the relationship between Brown and New England to work; the 31-year-old receiver will need to avoid the distractions that have become attached to him in the past couple of seasons.
