Antonio Brown wants back in the NFL again. In fact, although he never technically wanted out, his desires got lost in the translation of his rap career and on-field dramatics. The Super Bowl-winning wide receiver took to Twitter and reshared his big game touchdown from Super Bowl LV in 2021 with a caption giving a glimpse into his current mental state.
“I wanna ‘put that sh*t On’!! Again”
Brown has set the world on fire with his debut album, Paradigm, his entrance into the rap game. The 11-track effort includes a variety of blockbuster features and beats from some of the hottest producers in the game.
"put that shit On "!!

The introductory song on the album, “Champions,” showed the benefit of being the president of Kanye West’s Donda Sports with a feature from Kanye collaborator Fivio Foreign. AB rapped, “Still balling, still winning/ Still smiling, still grinning,” to set the tone with the NYC Drill rapper. Other guest stars whose tentacles also connect to West include DaBaby, who pops up on “Business Boomin,” and Young Thug, who drops a verse and hook on the menacing standout “Get In My Bag.”
Now his hot single “Put That Sh*t On” has catapulted the four-time All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl player further into pop culture with a dance to match the song that has caught on like wildfire. He recently was at 50 Cent’s Tycoon Weekend in Houston with the cast of “Power Book II: Ghost Book.” His presence and song compelled actors Michael Rainey Jr., Tariq St. Patrick, and Gianni Paolo, aka Brayden Weston, to do the dance collaboration.
With NCAA and NFL teams all using the dance to celebrate a touchdown, it is interesting that Brown wants back into the league after going scorched earth against some of the leaders within.
When the news broke that Tom Brady wouldn’t be at training camp for at least two weeks, Brown took offense to what he perceived as Brady taking liberties.
“Tom brady manipulate the game gets 14 days go home get his mind rt lol,” he said. “Now u see the difference. Put that s*** on.” Brown remembered to drop the name of his single with a subsequent dance in the Twitter post, because that is what you do when you’re AB.
Later it was revealed that Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, were going through a marital spat from his unretirement. Brown made no retraction to the statement.
Brown didn’t leave Brady’s trainer Alex Guerrero out of the mix, coming at him directly in the rant, alienating another person still involved with the NFL or its active players.

“Alex Guerra – You think i won’t have u smacked at TB12 boy stop playing with me !” AB added. “Boy getting paid by bucks n taking players money too.”
Brown also went viral last month when he said, “tell Jerry Jones to call me,” to TMZ. The Dallas Cowboys owner’s response feels like the whole NFL.
“We’re good,” Jones told TMZ. “But we want to give these young guys a real chance to make this team.”
AB wants in, but the league doesn’t seem so warm and fuzzy to the sentiment.
