Would Antonio Brown’s NFL Return Work In New York?
We no know that star NFL Wide Receiver Antonio Brown will be allowed to return to the National Football League after serving an eight game suspension.So forgetting for a second that this season may not even be eight games long, where does the outspoken super talented wide out fit in the NFL and would any of the New York teams work?
First thing is to realize if this was just about talent I would recommend EVERY team chase AB. Sadly there is a "little" baggage that comes with AB. Obviously you'd sign him only to have him be suspended and unavailable for the first 8 weeks. Then there's all the drama that got him traded away from the Pittsburgh Steelers, released for the then Oakland Raiders and then released from the New England Patriots. All of which happened in one year.
So let's start with the New York Jets, IF AB is truly dedicated to playing and after meeting with him Adam Gase and Joe Douglas like his attitude I'd be cool with him reuniting with RB LeVeon Bell. However that's a lot of "Ifs" for a young team so I'll say pass.
The New York Giants are interesting here. AB's skills would go a long way in developing QB Daniel Jones and new Head Coach Joe Judge was the Wide Receiver coach in New England when AB was there for about a week. However the Giants aren't exactly a "win now" team and losing might set AB off, so pass.
The Buffalo Bills are a win now team but they just added Stefon Diggs. I think they'd be his best chance of success but the Bills don't truly need him and he shot down a trade there when he was in Pittsburgh. So yet again Pass.
