Former Indianapolis Colts head coach and now NFL analyst Tony Dungy made it clear he was not happy with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
On Sunday night, Dungy criticized the Patriots owner for his decision to sign Antonio Brown.
The former Pittsburgh Steelers star signed a one-year contract with New England after forcing his way out of Oakland earlier this week.
Following his controversial tenure with the Raiders, Brown received hefty criticism from former NFL players and fans alike.
Here’s what Dungy had to say.
“I’m disappointed in Robert Kraft signing Antonio Brown. Our players are supposed to be role models. This sends the wrong message,” Dungy said.

Bill Belichick and company have a history of signing troubled players and turning them into superstars.
Randy Moss found immediate success after landing in New England, as did fellow wide receiver Josh Gordon.
Now, Antonio Brown figures to make his impact felt. Brown won’t be able to see the field on Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he’ll be able to share the field with his new teammates in Week 2.
New England and Pittsburgh kick off tonight at 8:20 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on NBC.
Stay tuned for the latest.
