    You gotta be smart enough to know he doesn't fit with McD's character and mentorship program. He's torn apart every team he's been on. How about Nooooo, Scott.

    Have you heard something? I can't believe that after what transpired last year they'd have any intention of signing that idiot.

    Not a fit.

    Raiders were sort of the right place.

    We know what happened there.

    Be happy we dodged that one.

    Don't need him so I'd pass.

    He's a complete basket case. He's Kanye West caliber crazy.

    Crazier part is Kanye is the truth & people just don’t want to hear him because they want more problems.

    No. Kanye is not the truth. He's what happens when you combine mental health issues with fabulous wealth. He lives in a crazy rich person bubble.

    Antonio Brown is that weird level of crazy that often accompanies obscene talent. Kind of like Kanye West.

    Brown is/was hands down the best WR in the game. Yet he's also the best at being crazy, which is why he's gone.

    Just two years ago this guy was marketable and accessible enough to endorse a company like PizzaHut. Now he'd be lucky to get the vet minimum for one year.

    Well damn, somebody beat me to the Kanye comparison.

    Kudos.

    The Bills have built a very good team culture. Antonio Brown, or any selfish, self-centered trouble makers of his ilk, would go a long way toward destroying that culture.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    Yeah he's obviously nuts but I expect some team to take a chance. The only reason they haven't already is the league dragged it's feet on what his suspension will be. It's a form of black balling. You leave open the possibility he could be suspended for an extended period so no one wants to shell out. If the stuff he did, particularly the texts last year don't go public NE's season might have finished much differently including Brady leaving. That's the siren song this guy brings.

    I disagree. The culture can withstand an idiot like AB and can certainly withstand the overblown comment by Fromm. The problem is, or last year would have been, the salary cap implications if he did something to get himself cut or suspended. I knew he'd pull a stunt like what he did with the Raiders last year and that's why I wanted no part of him.

    Kanye is out there. But you'd have to be from another planet to fit in with the Kardashians

    You give the vet minimum with all incentives based on performance, you watch how motivated he will be to collect a check. Give him bonuses for playoffs and super bowl wins, he will probably play possessed. If we won the whole thing with his help, no one will say but the won with AB. Seriously itíll be straight up love, you know the fans will embrace him with godlike status.

    If I think he'd be willing to sign for the vet minimum plus incentives, I'd give it a shot, but I doubt it. The reason he wouldn't come to Buffalo is because they wanted him to play under his old contract, which meant no new guaranteed money.

    If he couldn't make it with the Raiders he's not going to make it anywhere.
