    Antonio Brown: Patriots have to pay me, they may as well play me

    They released him. The Patriots can't go back and reclaim this guy now... can they? Or can they?

    This is in the news, but, mods, feel free to delete if you're just sick of it.

    Honestly, the fact that I kind of WANT them to reclaim AB now... if they could...

    ...has made ME feel sick... of myself. o_O

    Not necessarily. Suppose saving the $9 million was a legit consideration in cutting him.... then suppose they now believe they won't save the money..... it's not necessarily the worst idea I've ever heard.....

    Barkley, Shepard, Gallman, and Engram aren't playing. The game will be over after the national anthem is sung.

    I don't believe they cut him just to save the money. The reasons they cut him still exist, and whether you believe it was Bill or Bob, right or wrong, that money is GONE. So your choices are lose the money and move on, or lose the money and have whatever negative impact you perceived Brown would have back on your team. There's no reason to go back on your reasons for cutting him just because you're paying him anyway. That's the part that's sunk cost.

    From what I understand of it, it is, but I'm certainly no expert. I'm happy to hear the argument against it for my own education.

    This assumes that the "negative impact" is an ongoing thing rather than related to a single incident (the texting) that has already happened. If the thing that got Brown kicked off the team was a specific incident that's already happened and the team needs to pay the contract anyway, the question becomes whether or not the Patriots actually want some ROI from the contract.

    I disagree. I think saving the money was a big factor in their decision and the timing.

    It depends on your assumptions about the relationship between Brown and the Patriots. If you think Brown is untenable as a member of the team, it is a sunk cost. If he isn't, it isn't.

    @Ian can you please add Antonio Brown, AB, Mr Big Chest, Golden 'Stache, The Artist Formerly Known As Number 17, Brady's Former Roomie and any other derivatives and/or aka's to the swear filter?
    Sincerely,
    What's left of my sanity.

    PS: I realize alleged rapist will have to remain available for Roethlisberger discussions as they may arise but remain thankful for any relief you can provide.
