    Is Antonio Brown still a guy who just wants to win?

    Or is, just maybe, crazy??


    So glad we didn't trade for him.

    Seeing what he is doing in Oakland, I am so glad he is not on this roster. He definitely would've made things worse.

    How would we have afforded him anyway with Rodgers's contract?

    had they signed brown they wouldn't have been able to do much of anything else. they had a lot more problems to address than a wr. they spent wisely.

    It would have meant they couldn't get Za'Darius.

    Also, that's a different point.

    And no it is not a different point in the least

    No you just made my point, we had needs that we had to use the cap space for and therefore could not afford Antonio Brown

    The point being that several fans were advocating for the Packers to trade for Brown and that the team could have fit his contract under the cap.

    Fortunately Gutekunst was smart enough to not acquire him.

    No, you said we couldn’t do anything had we got him. It would have made the difference of one different player this offseason. Brown for zsmith. As someone else pointed out.

    Myself, I wanted nothing to do with that circus called Brown.

    Nope... you literally said that they couldn't afford Brown. This is clearly idiotic given that they spent a ton of money in the off-season. In other words, you have no idea what you're talking about. But we all knew that.

    I was tempted to start this exact thread yesterday.... chose not to. I will, however, pile on. Many of us were rational enough to know better. I probably won’t see the rebuttals from those that disagreed. I have found that the ignore feature works well for that lol.

    I didn’t question how we could have afforded him after Rodgers contract, because I know we clearly could have.

    Keep thinking everyone else is stupid lol

    It might be worth noting than Oakland gave up 3rd. and 5th. round picks in trade, whatever value one wants to assign to that.

    However, there is a less obvious postive to having Brown. Any season the team finds itself out of playoff contention they could cryogenically freeze him until the following OTAs, adding years to his career, assuming he doesn't earn the nickname "Freezer Burn".

    What he did to his feet is incredibly stupid. The advice Captain Dan gave to Forest applies to the NFL: the first rule is take care of your feet.
