Antonio Brown has had a few troubled seasons in the NFL. Ever since murmurs of him leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers surfaced, Brown has been shrouded by controversies.

After joining the Oakland Raiders in the 2019 offseason, the 7-time Pro Bowler seemed to have found a new home in the NFL. But his stint there was short-lived.

Brown left the Raiders without playing a single game following an altercation with Raiders’ General Manager Mike Mayock. He soon joined the New England Patriots, but even there he was cut after playing a single game for the side due to incidents that transpired off the field.
