22 TDs.

Who would have thought back in 2015 that the Patriots would have:
Josh Gordon
Antonio Brown
Deymarius Thomas

At the same time.

Wow, I'm shocked, and think AB is a locker room cancer, but I guess this is why you have guys like Slater and and Hightower in your locker room. Hey, in Bill we trust!

It's 6 AM here and am wide freaking awake.

Moss, Haynesworth, Ocho, no "toxic" player has ever broken this team's chemistry.

I don't see AB being the one.

May 2019: Edelman, Dorsett, Slater, Berrios
September 2019: Edelman, Dorsett, Slater, Harry, Meyers, Thomas, Josh Fucking Gordon, Antonio Fucking Brown

Trust in Bill

EDIT: I'm sure I missed something, feel free to update. The point, I'm quite confident, stands.

I have no idea how they fit him in their cap. I'm just laughing my ass off here wondering what the hell just happened in the NFL. It's almost like the Pats just stole Antonio Brown, the best receiver in the NFL, from the Raiders.

Between here and everywhere.
I can't stop laughing. This one of the most, and the least Patriot moves of all time.

I'm praying for Gisele right now, because Tom is going to have a little more push to his pump tonight.

The odds of him playing a single down for the Patriots this season are probably about the same as him suiting up for Dallas week 3.

Signing with the Patriots is the highest profile thing he could do at this point, which is probably the driver here. I doubt he has any intent of stepping on the field unless it’s just to walk out of the stadium after one play or something like that.
I am guessing that he won't be allowed to keep the signing bonus if you are right. While this is certainly possible, he is looking for money and I doubt the Pats just gave it to him to get nothing.

Let's not forget too that the Patriots are still.... a tremendous power running team. If their center position holds up (really their only weakness now), how in the world are teams going to stop them? Seriously. There just aren't enough quality defensive players to stop everything the Pats can throw at them.

How frigging hilarious would it be if Gronk ALSO came back mid-season?

This really, really cements NE as the most hated team of all time. Doesn't it?
That was already cast in stone. This puts it up in bronze.

Embrace being the heels. It's hilarious. Soak in every other NFL fans absolute frothing rage about this because when it ends, you'll never see this again.

So presumably the $9M signing bonus is guaranteed and the $6M is week-to-week game checks?

Asking for a friend.

If you asked me an hour ago if I wanted AB, I probably would’ve said no. My squeal of excitement when I saw this news means I am a liar.

How much of his meltdown summer was all an act?
I think a lot of credence should be given to this idea.

Is it not out of the realm of possibility that he didn't want to go to the Raiders, got there, decided Gruden and Mayock were fucking clowns (they are) and was like fuck it, I'll just force my way out.

The Raiders really lost the best WR in football squabbling over 70k
