Antonio Brown rips Sports Illustrated, Eric Weddle in Twitter tirade


Antonio Brown just can't help himself.

The former Raiders and Patriots star has mounting legal issues, but he also just can't stay off Twitter dot com.

On Thursday, Brown tweeted some lyrics which sparked speculation that he was hoping for another shot in the NFL despite his recent declaration to never play in the NFL again. (That Twitter declaration, of course, was just narcissistic grandstanding because ... he can't help himself).

After New York Giants receiver Golden Tate responded to the lyrics, Brown saw a great opportunity to take a shot at Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko, who published an extensive piece detailing Brown's pattern of disturbing behavior.

Then, Rams safety Eric Weddle, who used to play for the Baltimore Ravens, came at AB, and that really set him off.

Like watching a car wreck, isn't it?

Brown has had a rollercoaster few months. After an offseason filled with crazy, Brown demanded the Raiders release him after they fined him for an altercation with general manager Mike Mayock in which Brown reportedly threatened to punch Mayock and called him a "cracker."

He caught on with the Patriots shortly thereafter but lasted only 11 days as Bill Belichick reluctantly kicked him to curb after a sexual assault lawsuit was levied against Brown and he sent menacing text messages to a woman who told Klemko the receiver made unwanted sexual advances toward her.

Brown likely won't see the field again this season. But since it's the NFL, he'll undoubtedly get another chance next year. 

It just better not be on the same team as Weddle.
