Antonio Brown won’t do prison time after allegedly attacking a moving truck driver in Florida.

According to a Friday report from ESPN, the disgraced NFL receiver pleaded no contest to felony burglary with battery and two misdemeanor charges after he allegedly got into an altercation with a moving truck driver outside of his house in Florida.

The former Steelers superstar was sentenced to two years of probation, 100 hours of community service, 13 weeks of anger management and he must undergo a psych evaluation.

All things considered, it sounds like Brown is getting off with a slap on the wrist here. If he had to do hard prison time, then his chances of returning to the NFL would have officially hit zero.

Do I think there’s a chance a team signs him now that he only got probation? When you have his level of talent, it’s never completely off the table.

At the same time, I’m not sure why you’d ever want someone like Brown in your locker room. The man is a circus and a never ending stream of distractions.

The NFL is about winning football games. It’s not a sideshow for Brown’s pleasure.

I sincerely wish him nothing but the best, but he’s burned his chances to play in the NFL. The league is much better off without Antonio Brown on the field.
