The Antonio Brown saga took a turn Sunday night when there was a report he was close to being traded to the Buffalo Bills.
But, that report turned out to be incorrect, as Bills GM Brandon Beane explained on Friday morning. So, we continue to wait on whether or not a new team would surface as the front-runners for his services.
According to Brown himself, we may not have to wait long.
The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver said in an Instagram live Friday afternoon (while he was at the gym) that he might have a new team within the next 24 hours:
Just tuned in to Antonio Brown’s Instagram live (real journalism, I know). He’s in the gym, and his workout partner says to him:— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) March 8, 2019
“Got the black and gray on already.”
Brown also says: “AB might be somewhere in less than 24 hours.” pic.twitter.com/mi0QMp6gPm
And one of his workout buddies noticed he was sporting black and gray garb -- the colors of the Raiders. While this could just be a coincidence, Oakland has been tied to AB with Gruden indicating he would love to have him as a part of his roster -- and so would quarterback Derek Carr.
But for now, we wait -- either for a decision or perhaps the next live video from Brown.
