Not too long ago, Antonio Brown was one of the best and most talented wide receivers in the NFL.
But his career dissolved before everyone’s eyes, as he became malcontent over the last few years.
After recently announcing his retirement, he became one of the owners of the Albany Empire, a team that plays in the National Arena League, an indoor football league.
He posted on Twitter on Saturday that he now realizes that no one player is bigger than a team.
As a owner I finally see now why it's important to make everyone know no one is bigger then the Team '! As a player I always thought opposite !

Even if Brown is being completely authentic about that statement, fans aren’t buying it.

A sixth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown blossomed in his second season with 1,108 yards and his first Pro Bowl selection.
Six more Pro Bowl nods, as well as four All-Pro first-team honors, came in the next seven seasons, and he led the NFL in receiving yards twice.
He went over the 1,500-yard mark three times and came extremely close to doing so one other time in 2013 when he notched 1,499 yards.
But toward the end of his time in Pittsburgh, he started to get involved in more antics that were seen as a distraction, and the team traded him to the Oakland Raiders in 2019, only to be released just prior to the start of the regular season.
He was then picked up by the New England Patriots and played the following two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, allowing him to spend more time with Tom Brady, which got him a Super Bowl ring.
But by the end of the 2021 season, he had simply become too much to handle.NEXT: Christian McCaffrey Makes Big Announcement
