    He's on a 4 (likely 5) year deal though, Brown and DT are here for one year. Can't recall if Gordon's deal ends this year or not. Worst case scenario is he gets a red-shirt year to learn the ropes. Not the worst situation for a rookie to be in.

    to have been a fly on the wall when Bill spoke with him today....I can only imagine what was said.

    hopefully he can realize this is a great opportunity for him and if he screws it up with brady/bill after the raiders fiasco no team is going to go after him.

    And of that list, how many were frustrated about their roles on crappy teams and just wanted to win? AB was on a playoff team, so mark that issue a no. Dillon was relegated to number two and wanted off a perennial loser in the Bengals after being the good teammate rather than die there without a shot at the playoffs.

    How many dragged private team issues public in order to self-promote a personal brand?

    Harrison was released by the Chargers when he got older. How was he a team problem? He was a team leader (the public issue was he was alleged to be a dirty player) on the Chargers and Patriots.

    Gordon works his butt off and quietly. Smart, good teammate. He has mental health and addiction issues. I am unaware of him sniping teams or teammates prior to the Pats, or fighting with his coaches.

    Moss got sick of the circus that was the Raiders and wanted to win. He was a diva and showboat, but he was a competitor who was good with the Vikings and Patriots.

    Do you mean Albert Haynesworth or Ted Washington? I don't recall baggage with Washington at all.

    Haynesworth didn't pan out. This notion that the Pats can cure all whackos that appear on the roster turns on the competitive spirit of the player and desire to do whatever the management requires of you to win. If you suffer from a God complex, then you won't work out. The Adalius Thomas mutiny in the lousy 2009 season is proof of that. When Moss went public with contract issues and argued with staff, he saw the door.

    The Pats have worked successfully with some problem children, but success or failure rests on the nature of the problem. Problems can be created by the team, by the player or both. Almost all of the success stories (Gordon is hopeful, but he sat out the playoffs) had problems created by bad organizations. I hope that is the root of AB's issues, or he will be an ex-Patriot quickly. I will trust BB in adding him, but I wouldn't bet the house on future glory just yet. I would love to be proven wrong and see AB redeem himself this year.

    It's weird as hell man. I am no fan of Brown. But if I where to build a WR that is perfect for this O, and for Brady the QB, it would be AB.

    Whatever, give me 12 hours and I will convince myself AB is just misunderstood. If AB makes it 5 games I will start defending his canton credentials. LOL.

    Anybody else glad that Humphries guy did them a solid and signed with the Titans? Weren’t his words were that they were “on the rise?” Lol.

    I bet he’s regretting that move.

    Even worse was him recording and posting a private phone conversation with Gruden on his social media.

    To my mind, this is Coach Belichick showing Brown how REAL trolling is done. He signs AB for a song, and has him lace up his cleats to greet Ol' Ben and the Squealers tomorrow. Hopefully Brown stands on the sidelines and waves at Pittsburgh while their offense (see what I did there? ) s on the field and cause them to get flummoxed and frustrated all get out.

    Coach Belichick, you magnificent bastahd! :cool:

    You cut him overnight. Simple as that. And I'm pretty sure he knows it.

    Can't be on the field, but my bet is that he'll be sitting next to Kraft tomorrow night.

    well, one thing I will say is that both the Steelers and Raiders ran a loose ship and seemed to let brown get away with whatever he wanted...which is what made him the entitled player he is today. Tomlin let his players run the team, and we saw how poorly the raiders handled browns situation. first suspended, then reinstated, then fined, then released.

    that wont fly in New England. question is, will he buy in with a more structured environment with two HOF'ers in Brady/Belicheck? if he can for just one year he can reap the benefits. but Bill will not tolerate any transgressions.

    That has been the best part of this for me. Watching the rest of the NFL fanbase lose their minds is admittedly satisfying.

    I was just thinking, wow Antonio Brown of all people got released and there wasn't a huge SIGN THE BEAST thread. And then we actually sign him. Huh.

    He really is a controversial signing that's for sure. We're in for an exciting season at the very least.

    1) Does the #1 defense really win the SB? We will have a top 5 defense by the playoffs, if not earlier.

    2) This does NOT change with the addition of AB. If a top defense and Brady is enough to win the SB, then we will.

    3) HOWEVER, and it is a big however, AB will be the Moss of 2019. Gordon and Edelman will definitely be helped by the addition of AB, big time.

    4) One of the WR's will likely be gone by the playoffs. So, having 4 to start is great keeping Thomas or Dorsett).

    I don't that will happen or think that would be good for his development especially that we spent a first on him and based on his 2 plays he's seems pretty plug in play might not see much but I'm sure he'll get rotated.

    When you put it that way that is epic trolling.
