The days after Antonio Brown was released by the New England Patriots — the team parted ways with him following a new series of allegations brought forward — certainly saw plenty of developments: from him filing grievances against both the Patriots and his previous team, the Oakland Raiders, to him attacking New England owner Robert Kraft and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on social media.

Brown also announced that he “will not be playing in the NFL anymore” just two days after the Patriots parted ways with him. However, it seems as if he has reversed course now — at least if another one of his social media posts is to be believed. The 31-year-old took to Instagram on Wednesday to release a live video of him speaking among other things about the last team that employed him:

“You guys follow the Patriots tell them to call me. They still gotta pay me, might as well let me earn it,” he said. The team refused to pay the seven-time Pro Bowler both his salary for Week 3 — he was released two days before the game — and his $9.0 million fully guaranteed signing bonus by the time he was released. Bringing Brown back, however, seems highly unlikely considering his legal status and the shots at Robert Kraft mentioned above.
