Antonio Brown hints Eagles should sign him after poor offensive performance
The Philadelphia Eagles looked horrendous on offense in Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots. A lot of that had to do with them going up against arguably the best defense in the NFL, but Philly is also hurting at wide receiver. Not surprisingly, Antonio Brown wants to help.
With DeSean Jackson on injured reserve and Alshon Jeffery battling an ankle injury, several Eagles fans took to Instagram on Sunday calling for the team to sign Brown. The seven-time Pro Bowler shared a bunch of the posts on his own IG story.

Brown is essentially in limbo at the moment. He met with NFL investigators last week to discuss the sexual assault allegations against him, but there has still been no indication of when the NFL will make a ruling or how severe the disciplinary action might be.
There is a wide-ranging belief that the NFL is trying to prevent Brown from signing with a team this season in order to sort the situation out completely. Even if a team did sign Brown, the league could still place him on the commissioner’s exempt list and essentially suspend him with pay. That is why Brown has expressed frustration and unloaded on the NFL via social media, but that isn’t going to get him signed any quicker. It’s extremely unlikely that the Eagles or any other team will consider bringing him in before the offseason.
