With one week left to play in the season, the Saints are giving the polarizing wideout a workout two days before the final game of the regular season. It’s a risk that the team is willing to take if he passes all of the requirements for his workout to be on the Saints.
New Orleans is the first team to take a chance on Brown since his release early in the season from the New England Patriots. His release was due to his legal battles after being accused of sexual assault. Along with that, he has made plenty of headlines for his activity on Twitter in attacking people inside the league, from former teammates to high-ranking officials.
That all comes after his saga in the offseason in which he burned all bridges with the Pittsburgh Steelers to be traded to the Oakland Raiders. He would then request a release from Oakland after having not practiced due to issues regarding his helmet and refusal to play for the Raiders in general.
It has been a roller coaster of a 2019 season, to say the least, for Antonio Brown. However, if he is signed to play for the Saints, then he will be a part of a Super Bowl-caliber roster that will give him a chance to finally win a Super Bowl ring.
Taking on the receiver would be a hefty task to take on for the Saints, but they know that already.
