The Oakland Raiders released the circus known as Antonio Brown on Saturday but the Arizona Cardinals should steer clear of him
What a week it has been, actually a month, for now former Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown. The Oakland Raiders released him Saturday morning but that hasn’t stopped people from already asking if the Arizona Cardinals should sign him.
No. The Cardinals should steer far away from that sinking ship. You know the questions would come up because typically media and fans starts asking these questions as soon as a star player becomes available.
There are some reasons why the Cardinals should not pursue him. You’d think these would be obvious but apparently there are people who think the Cardinals should just sign anyone and everyone.
Brown wants guaranteed money. This was his main, at least most recent reason, for his latest lash out at the team very early Saturday morning in an Instagram post.
The Raiders wanted to take away his guaranteed money and basically play on a week to week contract. Brown wasn’t having any of it and asked for his release on his Instagram.
It will be hard to see any team, much less the Cardinals, offer him any chance at guaranteed money, at least for the amount he is looking for. There is no denying his talent, but off the field issues are just too much at this point.
Besides, it sounds like he could possibly still get his $29.5 million guaranteed if an arbitrator decides in his favor. The Cardinals definitely don’t have that kind of money laying around at the moment.
