Antonio Brown has been a busy man since he last set foot on a football field. AB has been working on his rap career. He was also named president of Kanye West’s Donda Sports. Now, Antonio Brown is talking about his plans for retirement.
Brown started his NFL career as a Pittsburgh Steeler. He quickly became a superstar in the league, spending his first eight seasons in the Steel City. Antonio Brown’s relationship with the team and the city soured when he started skipping practices and behaving erratically.
AB’s last stop in the NFL was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Before that, he played for the Oakland Raiders and the New England Patriots, where he was also a malcontent and subject to frequent disciplinary issues. In a recent tweet, Brown announced that he has decided he wants to mend fences with his former team.
“Just wanna Retire A Steeler
Not Play Jus Retire so we Clear”
The chances of Antonio Brown getting back into the good graces of the Pittsburgh Steelers are slim at best. Fans remember his frequent tantrums and off-field problems as if they happened yesterday. Steeler Nation understands that Antonio Brown willingly walked away from the franchise that helped make him a star.
Even a symbolic gesture such as signing a one-day contract just to retire would probably not fly in Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown is one of the most reviled figures in the history of the franchise. It has been said that time heals all wounds, but AB retiring as a Steeler may be too much for the fan base to stomach.
