Earlier this week, former star wide receiver Antonio Brown issued a public apology to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

"Mr.Kraft I apologize sincerely to you and your organization! All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and the drama ! Thank you sincerely AB," Brown said on Instagram.

Several Patriots players, including quarterback Tom Brady, liked the apology on social media.

Immediately after the apology came out, fans wondered if the Patriots would consider re-signing the star wide receiver. Given the team's struggles on offense over the past few weeks, adding a legitimate star to the receiving corps would certainly help.

According to a report from former Patriots tight end and current New England analyst Christian Fauria, the Patriots have "kicked the tires" on adding Antonio Brown.

"I think they have kicked the tires...I know there have been discussions. That's for sure," Fauria said.

Brown played in one game for the Patriots earlier this season. He showed immediate chemistry with Brady, connecting for four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.

However, Brown found himself out of the job just a week later. Will the Patriots take him back?

Stay tuned for the latest.
