Saints to add Antonio Brown to postseason roster?

 

Unemployed WR Antonio Brown was actually in the news for football reasons this morning. The New Orleans Saints worked out Brown and five other receivers today. Brown will leave New Orleans without a contract and he might have made his bed already by posting a picture of his tryout contract, only to delete the post hours later once someone got in his head that doing that was probably a bad idea. Any team that signs Brown for the postseason would need assurances from the league he would be permitted to play as Brown is currently under investigation by the NFL.

Patriots release Antonio Brown

 

The New England Patriots have released WR Antonio Brown as Brown didn’t even make it two weeks with New England. The Patriots in a statement say “The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.”

Week 2 AFC Power Rankings: Steelers drop 4 spots

 

WEEK 2 AFC POWER RANKINGS 1. New England Patriots (1-0) | Previous RK: (1) | WK 2: @ MIA A 33-3 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 and the New England Patriots showed already of how big of a discrepancy there is between them and the rest of the field minus the Kansas City Chiefs. A cup cake schedule to open the season, not starting 8-0 would be a disappointment. The fascinating storyline for Week 2 is how much Antonio Brown plays and with the NFL investigation picking up steam, is it one game and done for Brown in New England? 2. Kansas City Chiefs (1-0) | Previous RK: (2) | WK 2: @ OAK Patrick Maholmes is unstoppable and losing Tyreek Hill isn’t likely to slow this offense down in Week 2. 3. Baltimore Ravens (1-0) | Previous RK: (4) | WK 2: vs ARI 49 PointRead More »

Antonio Brown accused of sexual assault and rape of his former trainer

 

  Patriots WR Antonio Brown has been accused of sexually assault and rape of his former trainer, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida. The New York Times first reported the news Tuesday night. Brown’s former training Britney Taylor, accuses Brown of sexually assaulting her on three separate occasions in 2017 and 2018. The first alleged incident came in June 2017 at Brown’s Pittsburgh area home. Taylor in the lawsuit says Brown exposed himself and kissed her without consent at one of his Pittsburgh’s home. A month later at Brown’s home in Miami, Taylor alleges Brown masturbated near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back, then later bragged about it in a series of text messages that can be viewed online since the lawsuit went public where Brown says in the text to Taylor “I jack my d*** on your back”.

Week 1 Takeaways: Bengals nearly upset Seahawks

 

Week 1 Takeaways SEA 21 – CIN 20: Andy Dalton was balling in throwing for 418 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Bengals nearly escaped Seattle with an upset win. Cincinnati was very well coached in this one. Russell Wilson throwing just 20 times continues to be an inexcusable approach from the Seahawks in not unleashing Wilson…… SD 30 – IND 24 (OT): The Colts showed today on the road why they’ll continue to be a tough out even with Andrew Luck retiring. Jacoby Brissett managed the game well, going an efficient 21/27 for 190 yards and 2 touchdowns. Despite a ton of cap room, Marlon Mack was a reason the Colts didn’t even place a phone call to Le’Veon Bell in free agency. Mack went off for 174 rushing yards. Adam Vinatieri finally showing his age? He missed three kicks……. DAL 35 – NYG 17: Dak Prescott $$$$$$. 25/32,Read More »

Week 1: AFC Power Rankings

 

WEEK 1 AFC POWER RANKINGS 1. New England Patriots — The running game and defense hid some slippage from Tom Brady’s game in 2018. Now the Patriots go out and gamble on Antonio Brown and are crossing their fingers that Josh Gordon makes it through the season. If those two even go AWOL, this group will still be there again in January. For a run-heavy team, the offensive line will be a key area to watch in week 1 vs the Steelers as it’s a unit in transition with no David Andrews and Isaiah Wynn starting at left tackle — 2. Kansas City Chiefs — The Chiefs are primed to be the greatest offensive show once again with Patrick Mahomes and weapons galore around him. It won’t matter that Kansas City can’t stop anybody, at least until January. What wild times in the NFL with the Chiefs signing a notedRead More »
