The walking publicity stunt himself came out on Instagram saying that Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints worked him out as their own publicity stunt.

The New Orleans Saints might have pulled the publicity stunt of the year — according to Antonio Brown.

Antonio Brown has had the year of the decade from a professional athlete perspective. At the end of last year, he was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Weeks before he was traded to the Oakland Raiders, Brown took to social media to tell Steelers fans “goodbye.”

While in the middle of the offseason as a part of the Oakland Raiders, Brown got frostbite on his foot, which led to a helmet issue, and social media exploded as Antonio Brown rioted about being mistreated by the Steelers, Raiders, and the entire NFL as a whole.

While on social media, Antonio Brown demanded that he be released from the Oakland Raiders just a couple of months after his acquisition. He called out their owner and soon after, the Oakland Raiders released the headache that was Antonio Brown.

He was picked up by the New England Patriots, but Brown’s social media stunts didn’t stop there. He came out and said that the entire offseason was a huge ploy to get him onto the Patriots in the first play (knowing the Steelers wouldn’t trade him to the Patriots).

He was released from the Patriots after playing one game because of the NFL and legal investigations into a rape case brought up against him. After he was released, he took to social media and vowed that he would never play for the corrupt NFL ever again, among other things.

Now, Brown is within his grasp of getting to play NFL football again and he has the audacity to call out one of the most prestigious NFL franchises there is because he thought that they pulled him into a workout for a publicity stunt for the team.

I can’t even begin to imagine how that could ever be true. The New Orleans Saints have a reputation known to the world. They didn’t need Antonio Brown working out for them to get noticed by anyone.

Finishing the season with a 13-3 record obviously shows that they can win without him as well. On what grounds Brown has to say this is absurd and all chances he might have had to get back into the NFL on a winning team might have just flown out the window.

The NFL is still investigating the incident that arose with Brown preceding his release from New England and it is common knowledge that if a team was to sign him he would be placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt list until the investigation was over.

Because of this, the New Orleans Saints said they would not sign him until the investigation was concluded which is reasonable.

With the NFL giving no deadline as to when that decision was to be made, instead of waiting to see how it would go, the king of publicity stunts called the New Orleans Saints and Sean Payton’s workout a “publicity stunt.”

Antonio Brown’s future as a possible New Orleans Saints is more up in the air now than it has ever been.
