Deion Sanders 'can't wait' to witness Antonio Brown comeback story

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is looking for an NFL comeback, and while some teams may be interested, the 31-year-old is a less than admirable person and has had trouble regaining his footing in the league.

However, that hasn't stopped the seven-time Pro Bowler from working out with some of the NFL's biggest stars, including Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. There's much love between the former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Sanders. It seems that training with Sanders is the icing on the cake for the 31-year-old, who stated Prime Time is "a great father figure role model" to him in an Instagram post on Sunday. 

Sanders even returned the favor saying he "can't wait" to see Brown's NFL comeback after all the hard work he has put in this offseason. 

Brown requested, and was released by the Raiders in September after Oakland (now Las Vegas) fined him over $215,000 for conduct detrimental to the team. He then signed a deal with the New England Patriots, but played just one game with the organization before being released after sexual assault allegations came to light.

While the Baltimore Ravens have been rumored to be interested in Brown after he worked out with Lamar Jackson, the Seattle Seahawks are also reportedly interested as quarterback Russell Wilson stated he would "love" for his team to sign the wide receiver. He even worked out with Seahawks backup QB Geno Smith, which added more fuel to the fire.

While teams are interested, there's no telling where Brown may land or if he'll even be picked up by an organization to begin with. Only time will tell.
