Former Patriots WR Antonio Brown shouldn’t be in the NFL — and this *new* update only further underscores that.
When the one-game Patriots career of Antonio Brown came to an end, many assumed that would be the period on the end of the excruciating, unreadable sentence that his NFL career had become.
At the time, he stood accused of sexual assault and rape, and his non-criminal behavior had also followed an erratic streak leading up to his dismissal by Robert Kraft.
For whatever reason, however, quarterback Tom Brady stood strongly by his side throughout the process and was despondent after the decision to cut Brown loose was made, further depleting his resources.
It came as no surprise that Brady won out in Tampa, too, overruling Bruce Arians and eventually bringing Brown back on board for what might be his last chance at sticking in organized sports. Right on time, however, we were given a brand new Miami Herald report about Brown’s latest malfeasance. This time, it seems he’s intimidated those who should be fighting back against his bad behavior, leading to some bizarre incidents in the weeks before his re-acclimation to the league.
We’ve given you 12 chances so far this year, kid. Don’t make us give you a 13th!
According to the report, Brown destroyed a surveillance system and threw his bicycle at a security guard shack in recent weeks:
"“Hollywood police determined it had probable cause to charge Brown with misdemeanor criminal mischief for the Oct. 15 incident, the report said. But the homeowners association president declined to press charges, according to the report, police saying she feared Brown “may retaliate against her employees.”The incident, which had not previously been made public, was only the latest for Brown, who was signed by Tampa Bay less than two weeks after the fracas at the luxury Hollywood Oaks development. The Hollywood police department “exceptionally cleared” the case on Nov. 5, according to the report.”"
This, of course, comes on the heels of all the off-putting drama that followed his release from New England last year, not to mention the trail of accusations that necessitated it.
It’s clear at this point that even if you want to let due process play out and choose to ignore the criminal complaints that have been levied against Brown, he spends his free time acting violently, like someone who should not be employed. All he does is show the NFL world what he falsely believes is acceptable diva-level behavior, rather than worrisome malfeasance.
Why Tom Brady has tied his legacy to this man repeatedly we have no idea.
