    . I guess if it comes out of AB's mouth its a fact that BB wanted him? :rolleyes: I remember his agent listing teams that were interested before the trade but take that with a grain as its a ploy to drive up the interest and price.

    Jon Gruden had the best line making light of the situation. As per PFT:

    Gruden was asked if it was really his voice on the video Brown released, and answered, “It wasn’t Frank Caliendo.”

    I'm somewhat confused. Brown and Mayock were so far apart on so may things that they were coming to blows in front of the team. Mayock, the GM, decided that HE was in charge of disciple instead of the coach.

    IN ANY CASE
    Mayock told AB that he could apologize and play.
    THEN, after getting AB to kiss his ring, Manock sent him 3 letters
    1) a fine letter
    2) a letter informing him that he no longer had an guarantees
    3) and finally, a letter informing him that if he was cut, there would be no termination pay
    4) So, AB was expected to play on a week by week contract, with Mayock firing him whenever he felt like it. [we do indeed presume that the fight was AB's fault, bu so what? Mayock wanted to exert his power, and he did so ].

    AND THEN, AND THEN
    A) AB would rather play for someones else under these circumstances, and said so.
    B) Mayock consulted his lawyers and found that he would have a better legal chance at paying nothing if he cut AB.
    C) So, Mayock cut AB, and almost everyone said that AB somehow LOST. AB was fighting with coach. No one will ever know the details, same as in PITT.

    AB WILL SIMPLY MOVE ON
    He and Drew will need to convince a new organization that he really wants to play and will do so.
    I expect that there will be at least 6 teams seriously interested within the week, at the
    latest.

    They are my second distant choice but they don’t run tight enough of a ship. Re: Lane Johnson.

    Cross one SB contender off of the list of potential suiters.

    Unfortunately, I’d put my money on Philly or the Chiefs

    (trying the reverse jinx here, to guarantee that he is a Patriot at 4pm today)

    The Pats are so insulated that Brown would be a pin prick instead of an nuclear explosion. Does anyone really believe that the Pats locker room cannot handle the “radioactive” AB?

    Too many vets to let that happen. Too many people to give him the come to Jesus the instant he walks into the facility.

    I'm not believing any of this trolling. For all we know, the Raiders were in on this and Brown was never really disciplined.

    Yes, I'm saying this is ALL scripted! That whole organization is one giant circus.

    Think about it. They need the exposure and for the team to stay in headlines. After all, they're moving to Vegas next season. This creates drama, and drama creates revenue.

    All good points, all of which lead me to another team that qualifies on ALL counts. 1. poor ownership. 2. cap space to overpay 3. the need to put bodies into the seats. 4. the desire to become part of the national discussion. 5. Think they are close to being a contender. 6. A young talented QB who needs targets.

    Cmon guys how many clues do I have to put out there. Here's one more. They have a guy on the team who they believe can control him. FINALLY you got it. YES, it's the NJ Jets! They fit all the boxes. I'm surprised I didn't think of them before. What would make most sense. AB in the big apple. They deserve each other.

    Belichick and Brady could Reel him in if anyone can.
    For him his stats and brand go to KC.

    The entertainment value of AB combined with that media would be epic. Please Football Gods, make this happen

    When you combine that with AB's 'Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge' philosophy it pretty well sums up where he's at.

    I don't think Antonio gets it. He'll need to fall out with one more team before I think BB should get him.
