Antonio Brown says he’ll announce his new team in a “little bit”

Getty Images

Mr. Big Chest is back.

In his first exercise video posted since the one in which he announced his new nickname, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has a message for the masses.

I’m gonna announce my new team in like a little bit, all right?” Brown says.

Before he makes that proclamation, someone else points out that Brown is already wearing his “black and gray,” which obviously would put the Raiders in play.

However it plays out, Mr. Big Chest has just written a fairly big check. We’ll see if he honors it.

  1. as long as we didn’t give up a first rounder. i’m okay with this… my hope is third this year, and a conditional that could be as high as a third next year…

  2. Mr Big Chest? How about Mr. Big Baby? Or Mr. Big Never Won a Super Bowl? Or Mr. Lousy Teammate or Mr. Big Diva?

  3. So if it indeed is the Raiders let me count all this up. So you have a #1 Wideout in Amari Cooper, granted who was in a contract yr. You proceed to trade him and get a 1. Now you are potentially trading for another #1 WR- who granted is a among the best- but is older, as quick but doesnt have as much strait line speed, a potential locker room distraction, wants to be the highest paid WR in the league…and will cost at least that #1 you picked up when you traded Coop. So the net is you end up with a slightly more talented, but more expensive, more distracting version of what you already had..hmmm

  4. I’m guessing #35 overall. As a Steelers fan, take him. Dude has gone off the deep end. Still great, but has lost his mind.

  5. He’s gonna announce he’s playing for himself and retiring rather than be forced to return to Pittsburgh

  6. Hilarious. At this point I don’t see anyone but the Raiders who would take him on. Good luck with that. He won’t have the same stats with Carr that he had with Ben. Chucky and Mayock are stupid enough to give him a new contract and saddle themselves with an even bigger cap hit though, but when he’s not getting the numbers by midseason Brown will be melting down.

    Raiders are already a laughingstock though so might as well take the leap off Brown’s cliff.

  7. Lot of comments here from people that I’m sure would love to keep working for an employer that they feel doesn’t value them, feel treats them with disrespect, and generally makes them feel miserable. None of you would try to get out of that situation anyway you could.

    Wrong. They have Green and White colours.

  9. Dude! Who does AB think he is? If I were the Steelers, I would trade him to the Lions and make the announcement myself. Dude is leaving Pittsburgh as a malcontent then turns around acts like a FA. Antonio is a head case.

    Canadian here, they are Silver and Burgundy

  11. Gruden is Clueless. Why trade a top pick for a 31 year old WR with baggage? I bet Mayock already is questioning why he got involved in this Raiders mess…

    If Gruden really has to have a WR. Try and trade for OBJ. He’s 26. By the team the Raiders are any good he’s still in his prime. Brown will need to be replaced..

  12. To add to JBeezy’s observations….

    They got rid of Cooper and Mack because they would be or were too expensive for a team in a rebuild and they could flip them for draft capital. By the time the rebuild was done, they would be past their prime value.

    So again, Brown is more expensive and older. Where Cooper could be at the tail end of his prime by the time The rebuild is done, Brown will be at the tail end of his career. By the time they COULD win something, Brown would be a minor contributor. Why pay big money for a guy who simply CANT make a difference. Even if he is the best WR in the keague?

  13. Come to the silver and black. Derek carr will never throw u under the bus, or go on radio shows to blame you for the losses. Gruden demands accountability on his teams, something the Steelers gm and coach never did with big ben. WELCOME TO THE SILVER AND BLAACCKK!!

  14. Waaa snowflake. For millions my boss can punch me in the mouth every day! I guess the Steeler’s hurt his feelings huh? Please don’t ever run for office. If you do, Minnesota elects that type. Move there and run!

  15. Steelers miss the playoffs without Bell, but with ABrown. Now he’s gone too. They have a better chance of coming in last in their division than 1rst. Tell me again steeler fans how ‘they’ll be fine’.

    The Bills are not moving to Las Vegas.

    ————————

    im not a big fan of trading a 1 for AB, but you are delusional if you think cooper is even in the same ballpark as AB. and i really wanted Cooper to be great in this league i was a huge fan of that pick. but you dont lead the league in drops and dissapear for multiple games and get compared to AB thats just crazy.

    I have a feeling that your “Hope” is standing on pretty solid ground!

  19. Ah…seems like just yesterday when Eric Dickerson talked his way out of football history. The more things change the more they stay the same…

  20. Steelers miss the playoffs without Bell, but with ABrown. Now he’s gone too. They have a better chance of coming in last in their division than 1rst. Tell me again steeler fans how ‘they’ll be fine’.

    That’s very easy Teddy. If you say something is going to happen I bet on the opposite happening because you tend to lie and really are a terrible fortune teller.

  21. Jerry Rice played at a high level until his early 40’s… AB has the same work ethic. His age isn’t an issue. His attitude? Yeah, could an issue, but I doubt it will be. If it’s the Raiders, Carr and Gruden will be a good influence.

    A lot of assumptions here including the Raiders giving up a 1st round pick. I could be wrong, but this holdup is likely due to the fact nobody has offered a first, so let’s wait and see what they do end up giving up before assuming it was a first. Secondly, there is no comparison between the two WR’s. Cooper is good, but woefully inconsistent and will be making almost 14 mill for far less production than the guy who may replace him in Oakland.

    If the Raiders get Brown for a 2nd or even a 3rd, it will be a big time win. Better player for less compensation. We shall see.

  23. If he announces he us going to Buffalo I am going to be laughing so hard I might have to go to the ER.
    PLEASE not to Bills- BIG mistake…..

  24. Amari Cooper is not even in the same universe as Antonio Brown. Brown’s only issue is he has too much passion, if that is possible. Cooper had absolutely no passion for football. Gruden is another with too much passion. I’m ok with all that passion.

  25. AB or Cooper,I’m still crying laughing.. Cooper is soft, Dallas is delusional if they think he’s a dependable receiver game in, game out

  26. He was headed to South Florida but Ross wouldn’t change the team name to the Me-ami Dolphins.

  27. Please make the next announcement be about an actual status change. IE….Signed with new team or his decision to file Retirement papers.

  28. This guys ego is bigger than this country. Everyone is tired of his social media out burst, his self importance has gotten old.. If he does not need football than move on , no one is holding their breath on where his next team is.

    The Antonio Browns has a nice ring to it, rolls off the tongue…

  30. Please let it be the Raiders. AB better get used to a whole lot of losing. He’s going to see a stark difference in organizations and QB’s. Hope you like replicating Amari Cooper’s stats with the Raiders. Enjoy watching Pittsburgh in the playoffs while the Raiders have another lost season.

  31. That’s very easy Teddy. If you say something is going to happen I bet on the opposite happening because you tend to lie and really are a terrible fortune teller.

    You do that drooly. Bet your double wide trailer. Never lied about a thing. If you can create a link to a lie on my behalf, I will run across Gillette during the steeler game, wearing only a steeler helmet. People like Trump accuse people of lying when they can’t handle the truth. Steelers will continue to go south until they get rid of Colbert, and Tomlin. These parades in Boston are getting so tedious. Bet against the next one. So obtuse.

  32. Gotta laugh at the posters who think because the Steelers lose AB and Bell that they’ll have problems after Conner fit in just fine. I guess they forgot the Steelers won a superbowl with Big Ben throwing to Cedric Wilson.

  33. Brown, on his Instagram feed, said “Got the black and gray on already.” Pretty good guess it’s the Raiders, especially since this just feels like a Chucky move.

  34. Steelers missed the playoffs with Brown. He’s they’re best player. He’s gone. Conner was good, just 5/600 total yrds less than Bell. Now Schuster is the 1rst option, instead of the 2nd. Only delusional steeler fans can’t do the math concerning dysfunction junction. Laugh it up. I will too, when the steelers miss the playoffs again. Steelers haven’t won the SBowl in 10 yrs. As for the Pats…

  35. Yup, he’s gonna get out of a place he doesn’t want to be and get a raise. I wonder whom the tools are.

    Not Drooly but you wrongly argued with me in the PFT ‘Bill Belichick ranks LT “the best player I’ve ever coached” but won’t rank Brady’ article here. When you wrongly claimed Belichick wasn’t running the Giants Defense until he was named their Defensive Coordinator. Proven wrong by LT, Bill Parcells and Belichick in the “Bill and Bill” special on NFL Network. So either you lied about that or were simply ignorant of it and arguing against it anyway. You pick.

    You left out a minor detail. Tge employer is also paying millions of dollars, man up and stop being such a baby.

  38. I couldn`t believe Gruden gave them a 3rd for Martavis Bryant last season if he gives them a 1st for that guy he should be fired immediately! He `s doing a better job of building up Pittsburgh than he is Oakland if he does that. I`d say take a 5th or keep him!

  39. So… wait… he gets to nix a deal, even though he doesn’t have a ‘no-trade’ clause…

    …and now… both teams are going to let HIM announce it…

    So there’s another team as gutless as the Steelers?

    Or maybe it’s just the impotent Steelers that are cowtowing to a guy who’s basically leaving them in the lurch.

  40. I never argued about running anything. My only argument was when Belichick was the DC of the Giants, from 1995-1990, he owned the faux goat. If Montana apologists can’t accept that, it’s their problem. # playoff games took place during the period BB was DC. Montana was o-3. Lost 17-3, 49-3 and 15-13. Averaging 6 pts/gm. Fact that are in the record. book. period. I don’t care about he was hurt, this doesn’t count or any other excuses. Don’t waste my time. Brady is the GOAT. Even if one wants to argue that Belichick ran something over Bill Parcells(ya right), when he was ST/LB coach, he still owned them.

    amurdora i bet your a millennial and think you’re entitled to whatever you want based off your silly comment. His whole career AB was givin special treatment, catered too. Which is at the root of this whole mess. He throws fits on thefield,sidelines. When he doesnt get thrown too enough. The minute he gets called out and doesnt get team MVP he threw temper tantrums. SORRY but thats NOT the way things work in life. You dont get to bitch and complain and moan when you dont get what you want. Quit pn your team. Just curious..im gonna throw a hypothetical at you…You work some high paying job a nice cozy position but a co worker has to leave early and go home andntoure now tasked with finishing his work. Which happens to be Taking all the trash from the office to the compactor…what do you do????? Quit? Throw a fit? Cry and complain that your being disrespected….im guessing you would.. Based off your spoiled, selfish entitled brat like comment.

    When Belichick was DC of the NYG, he faced Montana 3x in the playoffs. 49ers went 0-3 and scored 16 pts. TOTAL. In 3 gms.

    ————————————

    Might as well say 4 playoff games. In ’84 the Giants didn’t have a defensive coordinator in name but it was heavily Belichick’s scheme. And the 49ers won that game 21-10.

    tedmurph says:

    It wasn’t 4 playoff games, it was 3. Belichick was the LB and ST coach.

    —————————–

    Again there is no argument to it, you’re wrong.

    On the Bill and Bill Special (NFL Network) all 3 of Parcells, Belichick and LT stated-agreed Belichick ran the Giants defenses in 1983-84. Just as I told you.

  45. Cooper was pouting his way out of Oakland and didn’t want to be there, despite never having a season befitting of a true top WR. And don’t blame it on Carr, because Crabtree put up his best numbers with him at QB and this season the Raiders offense actually got significantly better without Cooper on the team. Jared Cook also put up big numbers with Carr and once Jordy Nelson was healthy, even he was more productive than Cooper.

    Cooper is a quitter and a front runner who put himself first despite having accomplished nothing, yet somehow he gets a free pass and everything is the Raiders fault. Meanwhile, Brown and Laveon Bell both worked their ass off for the Steelers and have been among the very best at their position, yet they’re awful human beings and the Steelers are the victims?

  46. Unless he doesn’t.

    Send him over to the Raiders and let them deal with it. More then a few WRs in this draft are a far better option then anything Ab will serve up.

  47. Gruden trades 3 firsts to get Mack back and then immediately trades him for AB, sending 3 more first picks as well.

  48. When the dust settles, he’s still the best receiver in the NFL. Odds are pretty good that no one drafted in the first round this year will ever be anywhere near as good at their position as Brown is at his.

    He’s worn out his welcome in Pittsburgh. That doesn’t mean he won’t be happy someplace else……
