Antonio Brown has stunned us again.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the free agent wide receiver is working out with the New Orleans Saints.
"Saints are doing their due diligence," Schefter commented on Twitter.
Brown posted a free agent waiver from the Saints on Instagram Friday, appearing to confirm Schefter's report of a workout. However, Brown soon after deleted the waiver form from Instagram account.
Brown has not played in the NFL since he was released by the New England Patriots after playing just one game with the team in Week 2. Although accused of various misconduct and although he's created controversy on social media, Brown hasn't been suspended by the NFL and isn't on the commissioner's exempt list. As you may remember, he was accused of sexual assault by his former trainer Britney Taylor in September. He has denied the allegations and met with the league in November as part of the investigation.
We will have to see how the league will react to this update with the Saints.
The controversial player was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders in the off-season but did not appear in a game with Oakland and was eventually granted his release after a bizarre turn of events.
Brown caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown for the Patriots in Week 2 as they went on to beat the Miami Dolphins by a score of 43-0. He spent nine seasons in Pittsburgh, tallying 837 catches for 11,263 total yards and 74 receiving touchdowns.
