Shannon Sharpe did not hold back from taking shots at Antonio Brown during his conversation with Vick. Sharpe expressed his disappointment about AB’s behavior. He said, “Look you could be a jerk to a lot of people- I don’t think you should be a jerk- but someone that reached out, gave you an olive branch picked you up propped you up, you do them [sick] like this?.” Vick agreed with the Hall of Famer and said that he too found this disturbing.
