It seems like former Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl wideout Antonio Brown might play again in NFL this year. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brown visited New Orleans Saints on Friday for a workout.
Saints reportedly brought in Brown to do their “due diligence,” and see whether the 31-year-old WR could help them make a Super Bowl run.
Brown seemingly confirmed the news on social media, where he announced he’s “back to business.”
Antonio Brown started the season with Oakland Raiders, but failed to play a single game for the team before being released due to his unprofessional behavior. Brown then signed with New England Patriots, making his debut in Week 2 against Miami Dolphins and recording four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.
Brown’s stint with Pats didn’t last long, however, as he ended up being released several days for off-the-field behavior, which also made him a subject of an investigation initiated by the league.
If Saints end up signing Brown, he could be placed on the NFL commissioner’s exempt list, which would prevent him from playing until the investigation concludes.
New Orleans working out Brown might not be anything more than the team looking into all available options. However, if the team signs him and manages to put him on the field, the Saints could have the league’s best receiving duo considering that All-Pro wideout Michael Thomas is also on their roster.
