Saints and Raiders apparently among the Antonio Brown suitors

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...L5fTImm9jQLkts I'm not the biggest fan of Brown's diva personality but this would put us as the #1 super bowl contender. With that being said, it would be interesting how Loomis makes his happen...

Re: Saints and Raiders apparently among the Antonio Brown suitors

He would be a locker room cancer from hell. We spent 3 years getting rid of those on our team.

That would not make us the #1 Super Bowl contender either. AB would be an upgrade to our WR corps, but everything hinges on how Brees is going to play at 40 years old and what happens with the defense. Brees looked pretty bad in the final month of the season, playoffs included and the defense has made some drastic improvements but there are still big question marks looming over them.

AB isn't coming to NO. The Raiders or the 49ers can have him.

SP normally avoids these type of players, don't see it happening.

It's not going to happen. That being said, I don't think AB is the locker room cancer that he's portrayed to be. He does have the big head, but most WRs do for some reason. There is obviously a problem in Pittsburgh with the way things are run. I think Ben Roethlisberger escapes blame a bit too easy.

I agree with you half way.

Big Ben is definitely one of the main problems with Pittsburgh. He has gotten his OC's fired and has installed his puppets on the coaching staff. This is why Pittsburgh is so unbalanced on offense. They worship Big Ben and let him do whatever he wants to run the offense.

The real problem is Mike Tomlin. He is too focused on being a "players coach" to reign ANY discipline whatsoever on that team. They have a culture of narcissism, worshiping their players, rather than maintained control in the locker room.

People give Tomlin too much of a pass cause "he's never had a losing record", but Pittsburgh has been a pretty disappointing team for a while now and eventually, people have to start looking at the person in charge of the team that has led to this point.

Last year, they had that big problem with James Harrison. People were so quick to bash Harrison for signing with New England to try and get a ring, but there was a huge difference - Harrison wasn't a problem with the Patriots. Bill B wasn't in the media calling him "lazy" and putting him on suspension. That's evidence in itself that Tomlin is the problem.

He'll fit right in with Jimmy Garoppolo and Malcom Butler.

Due diligence, nothing more. We’re about to give Mike a 5yr/$100mil deal.

Really hope we don’t get him... way too much money for what his production would be. He wouldn’t be a good fit either.
