Antonio Brown, the gift that keeps on giving, comes through with most preposterous take yet
By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com
Free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown seems full-blown crazy.
That’s probably not news to you, I know. But it’s officially official after Brown’s latest day of rather nonsensical Twitter rambling, which featured the 31-year-old Brown claim to be the best sixth rounder of all time.
In Brown’s defense, he’s undoubtedly up there for best sixth-round picks in league history. Taken with the 195th overall pick in 2010, Brown’s NFL career includes seven Pro Bowls and four first-team All-Pro honors. Brown has also led the league in touchdowns once, and has twice been the league’s top talent in receiving yards and catches in his career. The Steelers certainly got their money’s worth when it came to that late-round gamble on the 5-foot-10 wideout out of Central Michigan.
But Brown seems to be forgetting about one other sixth-round pick: Patriots quarterback, and his teammate for 11 days, Tom Brady.
Selected with the 199th overall pick in 2000, Brady is not only considered the greatest sixth-round pick of all time, but has essentially cemented himself as the greatest football player of all time, with six Super Bowl titles over an unmatched nearly 20-year run of complete dominance. But in the unlikely event that Brown wants to go accolade-for-accolade with No. 12, here are some numbers worth mentioning: Brady has won four Super Bowl MVPs, he’s captured NFL MVP honors three times, he’s been named to 14 Pro Bowls, and he’s currently going back-and-forth with Drew Brees for the most touchdowns in NFL history.
Just casual things like that, y’know.
The good news for Brown, who is reportedly facing a multi-game suspension upon his eventual (you’d think) return to the NFL, is that he’s currently slated to get his own show on ESPN if he keeps bringing these fire takes to the table.
