Without a team to play for, former New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is looking for other ways to keep himself busy. He has been working out with trainers in an effort to stay ready for a potential comeback in the NFL while also taking classes at Central Michigan University. As it turns out, however, Brown is also looking to start some interactions with those on Twitter.
Monday afternoon, Brown posted a simple message on social media. "Q&As," he wrote, which many viewed as a request for a variety of questions. Hundreds of users responded in hopes of starting a conversation with Brown and potentially getting a unique response.
However, there were also some that used this an opportunity to pose some very unique questions to the longtime NFL wide receiver. Some queries touched upon Brown's history with the Pittsburgh Steelers while others involved his legal issues.
Regardless of the reasoning behind each query, it soon became apparent that those on social media were having an entertaining time in the comments section. Interestingly enough, Brown didn't appear to respond to any of the questions sent his way, which brought frustration to many. Although some simply compared this lack of interaction to some alleged unpaid bills.

If Brown had his pick of any team in the league, which would he choose? Would he return to the New England Patriots or join another undefeated team in the San Francisco 49ers?prevnext

I can show you the world
can I have a ride in your hot air balloon— pat (@antisocialpat) October 21, 2019
Antonio Brown is a man that has been known for his unique arrivals to training camp. As a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, he once showed up in a helicopter, along with his family. There was another year when he arrived in a classic Rolls-Royce.
As a short-lived member of the Oakland Raiders, however, Brown headed to training camp in Napa Valley in a hot air balloon. This was his way to showcase a popular destination for wine aficionados, but now the fans want to know if he uses the hot air balloon at other times.prevnext
Eagles need a WR. You down?— Will Cardona (@__willdabeast) October 21, 2019
One of the more common themes throughout this question segment was that fans of the Philadelphia Eagles really want Brown to come aid in their pursuit of a Super Bowl appearance. Alshon Jeffery is a proven talent while tight end Zach Ertz is reliable, but there are other gaps on the roster.
For example, Nelson Agholor has dealt with drops throughout the season while veteran speedster DeSean Jackson has missed multiple games due to injury. Many Eagles fans believe that Brown could simply walk into the building and transform this receiving corps.prevnext
How’s getting your money from Oakland working out??? pic.twitter.com/8s5JLs4RX9— danny a (@dannyboyee88) October 21, 2019
Over the past few weeks, it came to light that Antonio Brown was filing grievances against both the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders in pursuit of roughly $40 million in lost wages. It's entirely possible that the Patriots could ultimately pay Brown the $9 million that he believes he is owed, but the Raiders will be another matter entirely.
Recently, it was revealed that Raiders owner Mark Davis had saved multiple text messages from Brown in which the receiver asked for his release from the team. These messages, along with other factors, could keep Brown from receiving the $30 million he is seeking from the Bay Area team.prev
