It sounds like Antonio Brown is content never playing football again.

The former Buccaneers receiver hasn’t played a down of football since he walked off the field during a game against the Jets, and now it sounds like he’s faced the reality of the situation he’s in. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

AB finally admitted that he’s probably never going to be seen on an NFL field again.

“Obviously we live the game, but you can’t play forever. I think I’m a great player that’s done everything in the game,” Brown explained during an appearance on a Fan Controlled Football broadcast, according to CBS Sports.

When asked about suiting up this season in the NFL, Brown said, “Nah, don’t play yourself looking (for) me to play…I do what I want. Obviously I’m a 12-year veteran, one of the best players of all time, and my job is to live. Life is about living. We all gonna die…I’m a rapper, I do shows, I’m an independent businessman. Business booming.”

Well, at least Antonio Brown appears ready to finally recognize that he torched his NFL career the moment he walked off the field against the Jets.

For awhile, he was doing a circus act about how he might want to play again. Of course, a team would have to be insanely dumb to sign him, and it looks like he’s now ready to face reality.

Playing in the NFL is a privilege. It’s not a right, and Brown has burned through more chances than I can count. At some point, you just have to admit that a guy doesn’t want to be there and shouldn’t be taken seriously. That’s now at the point Brown is at.
