It’s high time that the NFL take a backseat to college football and let them reign supreme.
The NFL has proven time and time again how incompetent they are over handling domestic abuse, rampant drug use, and of course, anti-American kneeling during the national anthem. These players need to wake up and discover that the NFL isn’t worth it anymore.
And you’ll never believe which disgraced NFL athlete just announced his retirement.
You remember Antonio Brown, right?
He’s the generational wide receiver that is incredibly talented but also severely toxic. The then-Oakland Raiders (now Las Vegas) traded a 3rd and 5th round pick for Brown, they thought they were getting a great deal—especially when you consider the Raiders just traded Amari Cooper for 1st round pick.
Brown brought so much toxicity to the Raiders that it didn’t take long for them to release him. It was only days before they were about to start the regular season before they ditched their number one wide out.
The then-Raider also brought national attention to his helmet debacle where he blew it out of proportion as much as the Democrats blew the so-called President Trump-Russiagate conspiracy, which turned out to be complete nonsense.
Bill Belichick and his New England Patriots snagged Brown off the free agency market and he only played one game before the team let him go due to the rampant sexual assault allegations against him, with the league ultimately putting him on commissioner’s exempt list.
Since then, he’s been out of the league. Occasionally, Brown posts workouts on social media and looks to be in peak physical condition for his age, but that wasn’t enough for a team to give him a call for a contract.
That’s why Brown announced his retirement last Monday saying, “It’s time to walk away.”
Is it time to walk away i done ✅ everything in the game ?!!

Brown also added, “at this point the risk is greater than the reward thank you everyone who been part of this journey i sincerely thank you for everything! life goes on 84!”
This seems like reverse psychology, doesn’t it? But it will likely be failed reverse psychology because every team now has the information in front of them about how toxic he is. Think about it: Brown has a tiff in Pittsburgh with practically the entire organization including Ben Roethlisberger, then reportedly almost punched Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock, then went to the Patriots and complained about his $9 million contract, and then was finally accused of sexual deviances.
The writing was on the wall all the way back in Pittsburgh when he threw his whole team under the bus and called them toxic.
Brown clearly can’t help who he actually is because his talent is generational. If he walked out onto the field today, then he would easily be in the top-5 NFL receivers before he even took a snap.
The former Steeler should be more focused on how he can rehabilitate so he can prove that he’s deserving of another shot. Or, he can retire, like he did, because it’s probably the smartest move given the downhill trajectory of the NFL given the low-ratings and rampant anti-American anthem-kneeling.
