Antonio Brown 2019 is one to forget, and he’s going out with one last rant.
The free-agent disgruntled WR was brought in by the New Orleans Saints for a workout this week, but has since not been signed by the teams, perhaps in relation to the ongoing investigation from the NFL into Brown’s legal troubles.
On Tuesday, Brown took to Instagram Live and stated the Saints used him as a ‘publicity stunt.’

“I know I got a really crusty tone lately,” Brown says. “But really I’m at peace. I just don’t like the lack of respect in the world. You know, everyone has deadlines. I guess the NFL don’t have a deadline for me, so. I appreciate Sean Payton and them guys for supporting me and bringing me out to work out. But I think it was a publicity stunt for them. Sean Payton know[s] the feeling of being left behind, not being able to interact with his team. I don’t have a team. But it is what it is. We don’t seek comfort. We don’t make excuses. I’m [going to] just keep committing to be the difference. ‘Cause I know I’m the difference.”
