Antonio Brown is one of the most talented receivers to play in the NFL, except for one problem, he doesn’t currently play in the league.
Brown was traded from Pittsburgh to Oakland in March 2019 and had a litany of self-inflicted incidents, including an almost physical fight with General Manager Mike Mayock. He was released in September without ever playing a down with the team.
The wideout was then signed by New England on September 9th. He actually played one game and was on his best behavior with Tom Brady, but the team released him 11 days later after it was unveiled that he was previously accused of a couple of sexual assaults.
Brown is now suing both the Raiders and Patriots for money he thinks he’s owed. He appears to have a lot left in the tank, but will be 32-years-old this July and it’s going to take a team with a lot of guts to sign him at this point.
Now, odds for which team Antonio Brown will sign with to start the 2020 NFL season have been released at the Winning Poker Network Sportsbooks.
1. Baltimore Ravens (+250)
2. Washington Redskins (+350)
3. Seattle Seahawks (+500)
4. Los Angeles Rams (+500)
5. New England Patriots (+600)
6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+800)
It’s easier to start by crossing names off this list. There’s no way New England signs Brown again and Tampa Bay already said they won’t even though Brady is still a fan. The Seahawks and Rams don’t seem like great options either.
That leaves Baltimore and Washington. Antonio’s cousin Marquise ‘Hollywood” Brown is on the Ravens and he was recently seen working out with quarterback Lamar Jackson. Brown was also seen working out with Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
I think both of those teams provide good odds value, but I lean towards Baltimore at +250.
