Antonio Brown has agreed to terms with the Patriots, per source.

Well they haven’t exactly successfully handled Gordon. Belichick doesn’t overpay skill position players just ask Randy Moss. This could come back to bite them. They are a team that depends on teamwork and cooperation. I don’t know if you can get that with this guy. You obviously have to tread lightly with him. Is it something BB is willing to do.

Well if he doesn’t show up at meetings or is late etc is Belichick going to tolerate it. Make special rules for AB and tough rules on everyone else. And if you fine him is he going to threaten Bill or even Kraft. The Patriot way is cutting people who don’t cooperate. Getting rid of them a year early instead of paying them. Finding unknown players who are cheap and can follow a game plan. That’s the key following a game plan and making plays. We know AB can make plays.

On the other hand you’d think his contract would have language protecting the franchise in the event AB goes rogue. He did survive and play to a very high level for years with the Steelers. So he’s not incapable of working in a system and in a professional org like Pittsburgh. But if you can’t survive with the Raiders hard to believe you can anywhere else. Maybe the guy’s flipped out?

Kind of suspicious signing him so fast. But we all know the Patriots don’t break the rules. Esp their owner. Completely above board.

He was available at 4 pm and they signed him at 4:05 pm. I don’t really care I didn’t want him for us. We know NEP can win without him. As for the loss in guaranteed money it’s AB’s fault. The Raiders tried to work it out but Brown kept pushing it. You heard Grudin’s tape he didn’t want to cut him. It was the best deal they could get, who would sink a guaranteed 30 mil on someone so erratic. The Raiders were lucky they could void that contract. Their FO did a good job making that call in time to save the bacon.

There seems to be some thought that this was all  intentional by AB because he didn’t want a trade to the Raiders. All along he wanted to go to NEP. The thing is was there illegal contact by NEP with AB while he was under contract with Oakland. If Al Davis still around he wouldn’t let it slide.
