NFL superstar Antonio Brown seemingly announces his retirement
The Antonio Brown saga has finally, mercifully come to an end.
It appears that Antonio Brown may be fed up of trying to resurrect his career after being unable to sign with a new team in the NFL. As a result he’s seemingly announced that he’s done playing football on the highest level, via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.
“Is it time to walk away i done everything in the game at this point the risk is greater than the reward,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “Thank you everyone who been part of this journey i sincerely thank you for everything! life goes on 84! I came i saw i conquered mission complete Call God.”

After things fell apart with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the storied franchise traded the outspoken superstar wide receiver to the then-Oakland Raiders. It seemed to be the right move for both teams as well as for Brown. The Raiders were looking for a star to pair with quarterback Derek Carr and under new head coach, Jon Gruden.
Unfortunately for Oakland, it was never meant to be as Brown never played a game in silver and black. Numerous strange events took place with the Raiders that prevented the supposedly happy wideout from playing with the team.
Ultimately, the Raiders parted ways with Brown after a drawn-out process. This paved the way for him to sign with the New England Patriots and join fellow superstar, Tom Brady. Brown actually got on the field for one game with Brady. It seemed to be another match made in heaven similar to when Randy Moss joined the team many years prior.
Of course, that didn’t work out either due to off-the-field issues, which resulted in the team releasing the perennial Pro Bowler. Many believed that wouldn’t be the last Brown was seen on the football field. However, it appears to be trending in that direction after this announcement.
