Re: Antonio Brown at Saints Facility

I really like what AB could do for our offense but on the other hand I'd rather not see our playbook posted on Instagram.

Re: Antonio Brown at Saints Facility

Oh boy!!! To wake up to this kind of news is crazy. One hand I feel like it’s Xmas on the 27th and on the other hand with all his antics I feel like he can be major distraction. Roll the dice and the worst that can come out is probably a compensation pick in 2020.

Re: Antonio Brown at Saints Facility

The guy will have to clear league protocol
His serious off field allegations

That process has been in the deep freeze
No way does it happen for the playoffs

This sounds like just press fodder for Espn, NFL Network, Fox Sports etc
they can talk at length
downgrade our achievements etc

I'd rather win with what we got than this circus

Pisses me off we didn't get Emmanuel Sanders for a win now scenario
now he IS the GO TO wr for San Fran

terrible

I suspect the lack of investigation is not an intentional black ball but rather a resource decision. Brown was released and has no contract with the league, why waste time and resources until a team decides to in effect sponsor him.

These sorts of investigations can turn ugly, quick. Why risk that for someone that may or may not play again. If the Saints shows enough interests the league would start the investigation.

Still wouldn’t conclude in time for the playoffs, well maybe the last 2m of the 4th Qtr kf the Super Bowl.

The league isn't stopping him from playing. As I pointed out earlier, the commissioner could prevent him from playing by placing him on the exempt list, IF and only IF he so chooses and that requires Brown to be signed to an NFL contract first. I don't expect any suspension until AFTER any investigation is complete.

I don't know where you are getting this "clearing league protocol" bit. He is a free agent and not under any sort of suspension at this point.

Once again, he is free to be signed to play. He was released, not suspended. He wouldn't be subject to a suspension until after an investigation.
