It does not take a psychologist to diagnose Antonio Brown as being completely unstable.
The New England Patriots released their star wide receiver after only 11 days on the roster.
Following his release, Brown abruptly retired from the NFL – but you know it’s only until a desperate team offers him a contract – and nobody really cared.
Antonio Brown is without a doubt the most talked about professional athlete in America over the last couple of months. It’s just one ordeal after another that has sent the talented wide out into perpetual self-causing meltdowns on social media.
Brown was practically begging the Oakland Raiders for a release in the week before the start of the regular season. He got what he wished for and signed with the New England Patriots that very day.
And then the news about Brown took a violent shift in tone when Britney Taylor, an Olympic gymnast whom he went to school with at Central Michigan University, accused him of rape and sexual misconduct in a civil suit.
Following that news, an explosive Sports Illustrated article details an account of sexual misconduct by a fine artist who was commissioned by the then-Pittsburgh Steelers player two years ago.
The article also alleges that Brown was notorious for not paying his debts and notes about a dozen different circumstances where he’s done that.
The painter also claimed Brown sent her “Intimidating” text messages. The text chain, with four other phone numbers on it, included photos of her and her children, with the person she believes is Brown encouraging others in the group to investigate the woman. The texter accused the artist of fabricating her account of the 2017 incident for cash.
The texter described the artist as a “super broke girl” and asked someone he refers to as “Eric B” to “look up her background history.” He then sent a screenshot of an Instagram photo she had posted showing the faces of her young children, adding “those her kids… she’s awful broke clearly.”
That is disgusting.
This was obviously the Patriots final straw and he was released following this news. Owner Robert Kraft was reportedly furious when he found out about the text chain and his release was subsequent once they found out.
Once released, Brown officially retired from the NFL.
Brown wrote on Twitter, “Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !”

Was anybody really shocked? Nope, nobody was even shocked if it was the Patriots’ strict culture that could probably make an impression on the volatile Brown.
Brown’s actions are just like “The Scorpion and the Frog” fable, which is basically about a scorpion who hitches a ride on a frog across a river promising not to kill it, but then the scorpion does it anyway. The moral of the fable is vicious people cannot help hurting others. It’s instinctual and inherent within them.
Meanwhile, the memes on Twitter over Brown’s retirement are undeniably hilarious and most people are tired of his obnoxious attitude. Good riddance.
