Skillset

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Antonio Brown is a star wide receiver. He had as many catches in his first couple years as Michael Thomas had, and we all know how good Michael Thomas is and how valuable he is to the Saints.

In his last full year with Pittsburgh, Brown had 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns. In his first and only game with the New England Patriots this year, he pulled in 4 receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.

Antonio Brown is still in his prime and is still capable of putting up the top ten wide receiver numbers. If the Saints had Kamara and two of the top ten NFL receivers, the Saints would be hands down Super Bowl favorites.

He could come in and immediately make that kind of an impact on the Saints offense. Antonio Brown offers veteran leadership and if he can keep his cool, Brown offers more than just an athletic skillset.
