Why the Patriots were Antonio Brown’s only logical destination

Why the Patriots were Antonio Brown’s only logical destination”

New England thumped Pittsburgh by a score of 33-3 behind 341 yards and three touchdowns from Tom Brady, two of which went to Phillip Dorsett. Donte Moncrief, signed during free agency to be a starter, was targeted 10 times and caught three passes for 7 yards. There was the nonsense about needing to wear his old helmet, a freakish foot injury apparently caused by cryotherapy injury, and a constant social media barrage where the wide receiver took aim at whoever happened to be mentioning him. So instead of having to give up a pick or picks for him in March, Patriots get Brown without having to compensate another team in September.

Although only 13 total points were scored in Chicago on Thursday night and only one touchdown, the game also beat NBC's "SNF" Packers-Bears telecast from past year by 7%.

ANSWER: Antonio Brown was released by Oakland on Saturday, and he could not sign with another team until the next business day, which in the National Football League during the regular season is Monday.

Brown was unable to play in Week 1 on Sunday night, which was unfortunate because the Patriots hosted the Steelers. It's a nice start for a player who last season was a ideal 21/21 from 20-39 yards, with just two misses from 40-49 yards during the regular season, while hitting 2/5 from 50+.

Brown is expected to officially join the Patriots on Monday.

The #Patriots and WR Antonio Brown added an option year onto his contract for 2020 at $20M, source said, which is for cap purposes this year and helps for accounting.

However, last night's Tom Brady masterclass was up 3% on the "Sunday Night Football" opener between the Bears and Packers from 2018.

There was no sign of him at the stadium. Any explanation why the team is unrecognizable when they play at New England? "Just like every other player".

Don't worry, Ben Roethlisberger is sick of it too.

I can understand losing to New England on the road.

Although the Patriots threw for 373 yards as a team, Brady did so while under pressure on 43.2 percent of his drop-backs on Sunday night.

ANSWER: I do not disagree with any of the points you made, but I also want to explain that this is not the first time this has happened to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl era. Asked about it during his postgame news conference, coach Bill Belichick didn't even allow a reporter to finish his question. "Smart, plays all the positions and has come through for us in a lot of big games".
