Antonio Brown’s return to the NFL is complicated by a situation he wants a team to help him solve

Antonio Brown has done numerous interviews this offseason and in most of those interviews, the former Buccaneers wide receiver has made it clear he wants to return to the NFL in 2022.

The problem for Brown is that he comes with some serious baggage. Aside from the fact that he always seems to stir up controversy wherever he goes, any team that might sign him also has to worry about his injured ankle.

Brown suffered the injury in the 2021 season and as he says, it’s the same injury the Buccaneers wanted him to suffer when he stormed the field while shirtless against the Jets in January (the Buccaneers insisted his injury had nothing to do with the bizarre situation, but Brown says otherwise).

If Brown wants to return to the NFL this year, he’ll likely have his ankle surgically repaired, but apparently he doesn’t want to have it surgically repaired unless a team signs him first. TMZ this week.

“I need to get my ankle fixed, but I just want to make sure I have an obligation or a commitment from a team,” Brown said. “It’s a lot for a guy to go in for surgery not knowing where you’re going to work, or who you’re going to work for.”

Teams might not be willing to sign Brown unless he gets his ankle repaired, but he won’t unless he’s signed, so you can probably see the problem here. situation, which will likely complicate his hopes of a comeback.

If the teams don’t reach out, it’s unclear what Brown will do, but he really wants to play.

“I’m a player first, Brown said. I couldn’t even be in this position without being a football player. So I never want to take that for granted. I would like to continue my career. I have a lot of game left in me.”

Although Brown thinks he’s talented enough to play for any team, he admitted that one team he definitely won’t play for is the Buccaneers.

“I don’t think that’s a possibility, Brown said. How things were handled. How I was handled in regards to the injury. [They] just weren’t able to use me for my worth. My true value. … But I was grateful for the opportunity and the position I was in and made the most of it.

It’s somewhat surprising to hear Brown say he’s “grateful” for his time in Tampa, if only because he blamed Brady and the Buccaneers for many of his troubles in February.

If a team decides to sign the seven-time Pro Bowler, he believes he can make an instant impact.

“I always feel like I can put in big numbers, and I see what these guys get paid,” Brown said. “I just wonder why my value is not maintained as the same.”

While we haven’t really seen any NFL teams interested in Brown this offseason, the 33-year-old has hinted that he would like to play for the Dallas Cowboys or the Baltimore Ravens.
