Antonio Brown has played for three teams during his NFL career. Well, perhaps we should clarify that a bit – Brown played for the Pittsburgh Steelers for nine seasons, before the team shipped him to Oakland.
He never played a down for the Raiders after forcing his way out with a series of off-field incidents. Now, he’s a member of the New England Patriots – where he was forced to sit out for the season-opener against his former team, the Steelers.
Brown will be on the field for the Patriots next weekend when they travel to Miami to take on the division-rival Dolphins.
When he takes the field on Sunday, he might have to wear a new jersey number.
The former Central Michigan star has worn No. 84 since he entered the league. He did so with the Steelers and with the Raiders during his brief stint there. However, suspended tight end Ben Watson currently owns No. 84 for the Patriots.
Brown seems confident he’ll continue to wear No. 84.
Watson previously wore No. 82 earlier in his career. The tight end could sell the jersey to Brown for a little extra cash to start the season.
It will be interesting to see what number Brown will wear come Sunday afternoon.
