Is it time to walk away i done everything in the game ?!!
Many of his followers argued against his tweet.
It was previously reported that Antonio Brown enlisted help from NFL Hall Of Famer Deion Sanders to aid him in his comeback to the league. He revealed through Instagram that he had been training with Deion Sanders, while also receiving advice.
On May 31, he posted a snapshot of himself and the former cornerback, alongside the caption:

Brown has been trying to return to the NFL after he was arrested earlier this year. He was named a suspect in an incident where a moving truck driver was attacked in January. He was released from jail on a $100,000 bond for felony burglary with battery charges.
Brown has been in the league for the past 10 years. Eight of those years were spent with the Pittsburgh Steelers. After severing their ties with each other, Brown signed with Oakland Raiders for a brief moment before being released. He then signed with the New England Patriots, who let him go shortly after. He is currently a free agent.
