Antonio Brown updates have been coming out by the hour ever since he stormed off the field last Sunday.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have since released him and a public relations battle has been taking place between the receiver and his former team.
From a football standpoint, the release was noteworthy because it meant he hit waivers.
Would a team claim him?
It turns out no one wanted to pick him up, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
Antonio Brown went unclaimed on waivers and is now a free agent.
We’ll see what his football future holds.

That means he is officially a free agent and has options once again.
Where will he sign?
Brown Seeking Another Chance
Asking where he will sign may be the wrong approach.
Rather, will any team sign him?
That is the ultimate question and remains an unknown as the final week of the regular season is here.
His list now is limited to playoff contenders and all those teams should be set in terms of their ideal roster alignment.
Every single NFL front office also saw Brown storm off the field on Sunday in what was an embarrassing display.
Yet talent always seems to outweigh anything else and that is why Brown landed in Tampa Bay in the first place.
A team desperate for receiver help could always sign him with the intention of him being on a short leash.
Antonio Brown has officially cleared waivers.
There are about 100 other AB stories at the moment, but I'm going to stick with the fact that he cleared waivers.

But this is the NFL postseason.
It’s the time of year when distractions just cannot happen if a team wants to keep its sights set on the Super Bowl.
For now, it would be a shock if a team signed Brown given all his antics this past week.
He also claims his ankle is too bad to play on, so joining another club would put that storyline into question.
He may have to wait until next season for a team to bring him in, meet with him, and try to figure out if he can be somewhat reliable for the course of an entire season.
