Antonio Brown Announces His Retirement

Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown announced his retirement from the NFL on his Twitter account on Monday.

Before this announcement, there was speculation of the Baltimore Ravens or Seattle Seahawks considering signing Brown for the upcoming season.

Brown has been a free agent since getting released by the New England Patriots after Week 2 of the 2019-20 season. He was traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders, where he spent the offseason and preseason. But Brown was cut by the team after conflict with the organization, more specifically general manager Mike Mayock occurred. Brown was later signed by the New England Patriots where he only played one game Week 2 versus the Miami Dolphins. Brown posted four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown during that game.

During his nine-year career in Pittsburgh Brown had 837 receptions for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns. All-time he has the 28th most receptions, 35th most receiving yards, and 34th most touchdowns. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler, four-time First-Team All-Pro, one-time Second-Team All-Pro, two-time receiving yardage leader, two-time receptions leader, led the league in touchdowns in his final full season and a member of the 2010s All-Decade Team.

His stats scream Hall of Famer, however,  his more recent antics and off the field issues could hold him out of Canton much like Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.
