Antonio Brown gets workout with Saints
Antonio Brown is still waiting to hear if he will face disciplinary action from the NFL, but the star wide receiver is getting a close look from at least one team in advance of the playoffs.
On Friday, Brown shared a photo on Instagram of a free agent waiver he received from the New Orleans Saints, indicating he will work out with the team. Several reporters confirmed that Brown is, in fact, visiting with the Saints on Friday.

From a football standpoint, Brown would obviously be an outstanding addition for any team during the playoffs. He and Michael Thomas would immediately become the most dangerous wide receiver duo in football if Brown were to sign with the Saints, but it still seems unlikely.
The NFL has the ability to place Brown on the commissioner’s exempt list, which would essentially be a paid suspension. That is almost certainly what they will do if Brown signs with a team before they conclude their investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against him.
There are several teams that are reportedly interested in Brown, but all indications have been that he is going to be suspended at some point. He had a sexual assault lawsuit filed against him by a former friend and personal trainer earlier this year, and a second woman whom he hired to do some artwork at his house has since accused him of sexual misconduct.
