Raiders receiver Antonio Brown, an excellent player, has nevertheless carried plenty of headaches with him to Oakland. His situation inspired Wednesday’s PFT Live draft.

Which NFL players are worth the headache?

Simms and I drafted three each. They’re named in the attached video.

Watch it, and then point out any we may have forgotten. And then watch us tomorrow morning on PFT Live.

  1. Which NFL players are worth the headache?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When the NFL collectively learns the correct answer to that question is “None of them” they may actually stop creating and/or appeasing these entitled idiots and the game would be better for it.

  2. >>Which NFL players are worth the headache?

    Hall of famers at most positions.

    Very good QBs.
    Very good olinemen – but you rarely hear about them running their mouths
    Probably very good pass rushers.
    Probably very good WRs.

  3. Aren’t they all worth it until they are not? Much like beauty, headaches are in the eye of the beholder. X Fans were equally thrilled to get TO, Randy Moss, Antonio Brown to name a few. Then X fans were thrilled to get rid of TO, Randy Moss and Antonio Brown to name a few. But now Y fans are thrilled to get TO, Randy Moss, Antonio Brown to name a few. Until they are not.

  4. Two of the six players are QBs. Neither of them were Aaron Rodgers.

    Antonio Brown made the cut as being worth the headache.

    Evidently, getting your HC fired during the season, winning only 6 games and his new contract were key elements of the decision as to him being not worth the headache.

    I think Florio and Simms got this one right…

  5. Heck, Percy Harvin was worth the headache that year now that I think about it.

    Winning the SuperBowl makes it all go away…if you don’t win it all I don’t think it would be worth it…the headaches just get worse and worse until it becomes a tumor you have to cut from the team to save it.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    So they cut Rodgers? Is that what your unusual logic is trying to tell us?

    Hey everybody………goatherder said the Packers cut Rodgers! Don’t ask for a source from him…..you’ll never get it.
