These days, if Antonio Brown is in the headline, it’s a safe bet it’s because he is doing something insane. And while this is far less outlandish than some of the other things he’s done over the past year, it still shows the part of his brain that controls logic is missing.
Antonio Brown doesn’t seem to be embracing the notion that the NFL may be done with him, and he once again aired his thoughts via social media. This time, Brown took a swipe at Atlanta Falcons star Julio Jones, who many believe is the best overall receiver in the NFL.
With the Falcons cutting Desmond Trufant, you could argue that cornerback is just as dire of a need as a pass rusher. Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield have shown promise, but that duo is likely not ready to be the top two corners for a quality NFL secondary.

He’s coming home, and he’s excited about it. Last week, the Atlanta Falcons made a splash by signing 3x Pro Bowler and 2x First Team All Pro running back Todd Gurley following his release by the Los Angeles Rams.
With the XFL season cut short thanks to the coronavirus, players are free to sign with NFL teams, and the Falcons have not hesitated in adding them. Earlier this week, they brought in tight end Khari Lee.
