Former Steelers WR comes out of retirement. . .sort of
If you are one of those Pittsburgh Steelers fans who missed seeing wide receiver Antonio Brown on the field, you are going to get your chance. Kind of. Brown has transitioned from player to team owner (or did he?) of the Albany Empire of the Arena League and this Saturday, Brown is going to suit up.
Is this just a publicity stunt? Of course it is. That’s not to say Brown can’t run some routes and get some catches on Arena League guys. I’m sure he can. But as with everything Brown does, it is a way to draw attention to himself while simultaneously drawing attention away from the last ridiculous thing he did without meaning to.
A case can be made that Brown is the best receiver in Steelers history. But he squandered a Hall of Fame career and has been on a steady downward spiral ever since. Having said all that, you can bet we will be tuning in this weekend to see what Brown does next.
