Antonio Brown has not yet spoken to the media since he officially became a member of the New England Patriots on Monday, but one fan was able to ask the wide receiver a question while driving near Gillette Stadium.
Ruthie Polinsky of FOX Providence shared a video on Twitter of a fan asking Brown how excited he is to be with the Patriots.
Check out the exchange in the video below:
Just had this video sent to me taken outside Gillette Stadium. Can confirm Antonio Brown is fully in the mix.— Ruthie Polinsky (@ruthiepolinsky) September 10, 2019
Q: “How excited are you to be on the Patriots?”
AB: “Extremely grateful, bro.”
Brown signed a one-year contract with the Patriots reportedly worth up to $15 million. He reportedly agreed to join the defending Super Bowl champions Saturday, just hours after being released by the Oakland Raiders.
It's possible Brown makes his Patriots debut Sunday when the team plays the Miami Dolphins on the road. Bill Belichick was asked Tuesday if Brown will play in Week 2, and the Patriots head coach was non-committal.
Brown caused distractions and unneeded drama during his short tenure with the Raiders, but his incredible talent and impressive track record of elite on-field production make adding him to the roster worth the gamble.
