Fourteen years after Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens engaged in a protracted standoff with the Philadelphia Eagles, another star receiver inches toward a showdown with the NFL franchise on the other side of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
And it’s becoming increasingly clear that, like T.O. in 2005, Antonio Brown wants to play for a new team.
Appearing on Friday’s #PFTPM podcast, Owens explained that he has spoken to Brown, and that Owens has been advising Brown regarding his situation. The content and context of Owens’ remarks indicate that Brown is ready to move on.
“I’ve talked with Antonio Bown throughout the course of year,” Owens said on Friday’s #PFTPM podcast. “And I’ve kind of known some of what has been going on. He’s leaned on me for advice, as somewhat of a mentor, so to speak. . . . I think with him, I think it’s a fresh start to go elsewhere and part ways with the organization and with some of the things than he and Ben have been confronted with.”
