The Antonio Brown in New England experiment failed miserably. The Patriots had the opportunity to bring him back several times, but ddn’t because of the outside distractions that come with Brown. But, there are still teams that could have interest in the highly talented wide receiver. One team that might be interested is the New Orleans Saints.
Free-agent WR Antonio Brown is in New Orleans this morning, working out for the Saints, per source. Saints are doing their due diligence.

So Antonio Brown is at the Saints facility working out, according to sources and Brown himself, via Instagram. With this in mind, there are a few interesting tidbits to think about.
Pairing Brown with Michael Thomas
Michael Thomas is arguably the best wide receiver in the game right now. Thomas has been so reliable for quarterback Drew Brees this year. Now, the Saints have the opportunity to add a talent in Brown at WR. Thomas on one side and Brown on the other?
Imagine Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown on the same offense 😳. https://t.co/TL6dvhZCHu

Apparently, I’m not the only one to think this could be something special.
Giving Drew Brees Another Weapon
Drew Brees is getting up there in age. He doesn’t have many more opportunities to win another Super Bowl. Brees and the rest of the Saints still remember the pain they felt of getting robbed to go to another Super Bowl. Why not do everything they can to win it all, right? I’m sure Sean Payton and the entire Saints organization will put up with Brown for a few weeks.
The Commissioner’s Exempt List Factor
Important note: The NFL has made clear that if someone signs AB, he’s likely headed to the Commissioner’s Exempt list until his investigation is complete. https://t.co/Fax00YmAbV

Remember all of the stuff that got A.B. out of New England? Yeah, that stuff is still out there people! Like Ian Rapaport says above, whoever signs Brown risks the strong po
ssibility of him ending up on the list. If that happens, Brown can’t play until his investigation is complete. The Saints have to remember this factor when making their final decision on Brown.
Do I think this move happens? No. There’s too much to A.B. for teams to deal with this season. Let the investigation subside and then let the bidding begin for A.B. at that point. The Saints are extremely talented without Brown. But then again, Brown with Brees and Thomas would make the NFC that much more challenging. Oh, the beauty of NFL rumors before the playoffs!
