Antonio Brown Reveals Plans To Play Football Again
Antonio Brown plans to play in the NFL again, but he won’t really suit up for any dominant team in the divisions. According to experts, Brown will play football for the Arena League’ Albany, New York Empire. It’s interesting to note that he will be the first player-owner in NFL history.

Brown sure rode the rollercoaster in the NFL. He made a few stops in the league and even joined the New England Patriots at one point. He was great as a wide receiver, but there was so much going on in his surroundings. Brown faced sexual assault charges and these accusations didn’t help at all.
The talented football player hasn’t played a regular season game since January 2, 2022. He was part of the Tamp Bay Buccaneers back then but this sting didn’t end well. Brown left the game and the Buccaneers released him right after the game. The wide receiver has been looking for a home ever since, but things didn’t go in his favor.
Antonio Brown has big plans for his football future
NFL experts would agree that Brown is a brilliant wide receiver. However, his off-field problems destroyed his career and Brown had issues finding another home in the NFL.
When it comes to his stint with the Patriots, we can freely say that he was released right after his first game with the team. In this game with the Patriots, Brown had four catches for 56 yards and a score.
Brown confirmed his retirement. However, he won’t give up that easily. His father, Eddie Brown, was part of the Arena League in Albany and Brown is trying to connect some dots.
“I grew up here, as a little kid watching my dad be successful and watching this building erupt,” Antonio Brown said in an introductory press conference.
“For me, to be in a family-oriented city like Albany, being here with my dad and my kids and just giving the community and players the opportunity to live out their dreams. So for me, it was easy. I’m just excited to be here and excited to bring [the] Albany Empire a three-peat and see the community and these players live out their dreams.”
