Former Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is trying to improve. After his NFL career took a dark turn south, Brown decided that it was time to head back to school.
According to Brown, he is heading back to Central Michigan to finish his schooling.
“So, I looked up the classes Antonio Brown supposedly is taking,” NESN reporter Dakota Randall wrote. “Quite the course load! Technical Writing (needed, we all can agree) Introduction to Management Death and Dying (lol) Racism and Inequality.”
The news comes after Antonio Brown said he would no longer be playing in the NFL.
“Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guaranteed anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up,” he wrote
Brown forced his way out of Oakland after a preseason filled with absurd drama stemming from the wide receiver’s frost-bitten feet to threatening to retire over an issue with his league-approved helmet. The Raiders acquired Brown in the offseason via a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers but they ultimately decided the headaches weren’t worth it.
Brown then was a member of the New England Patriots before his ultimate release.
Throughout his career in the NFL, Brown has hauled in 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns. Last season, Brown recorded 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. In each of the last 6 seasons, Brown has recorded at least 100 catches and 1,000 yards. The Patriots opened the season with a blowout win over Brown’s former team, the Steelers.
