Patriots made the right move by letting Antonio Brown go

Do you think the New England Patriots made the right move by letting Antonio Brown go?

Today the New England Patriots released WR Antonio Brown, and you could tell the writing was on the wall after the morning practice.

Bill Belichick couldn’t be bothered by Antonio Brown questions for more than a few minutes before walking out of his morning press conference.

The Patriots should not be crushed for taking a flyer on Antonio Brown. I mean he did have a solid game last week for them. As a player he is super talented but his off-the-field incidents were causing issues in the locker room and the Patriots had a decision to make.

After a Sports Illustrated report surfaced that Brown sent threatening text messages Wednesday night to the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct in a 2017 incident detailed in an SI story published Monday. The texts were sent in a 5-person group chat and included pictures of the woman’s children. Brown alleged she fabricated the account for money and told the three other recipients — all confidants — to dig into her life. This was the breaking point.

Belichick would not answer a question about AB in his afternoon practice. The Patriots basically paid $158,333 for one game. That was a great deal for the Patriots, and to be honest they made the right decision. On Monday, Brown’s contract was set to be guaranteed and he would have received the first 5 million dollars of his 9 million dollar signing bonus.

The Patriots basically used him a game, but they made the right decision overall. Antonio Brown needs help and his agent somehow thinks he does not have a problem.

I think Antonio Brown needs some help and I am not sure you will see him in the NFL for the rest of the year.
