After a bizarre week where he reportedly called his GM a cracker, secretly videotaped his head coach and got released, Antonio Brown is now a New England Patriot.


Antonio Brown has agreed to a deal with the New England Patriots, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Saturday.

New England is giving Brown a one-year deal worth up to $15 million, Rosenhaus said. It includes a $9 million signing bonus, $10 million guaranteed and $5 million in incentives.

The agreement comes hours after Oakland released Brown to end a tumultuous stint with the Raiders, who acquired the Pro Bowl wide receiver via trade during the offseason.

Before signing with the Patriots, Brown posted this video of himself celebrating his release from the Oakland Raiders early this morning.

Apparently, people around the league believe Brown may have orchestrated his exit from the join the Patriots.

If this turns out to be true it would be the most diabolical move in the history of the NFL.
