Well that didn't take too long. Just under a week after being cut by the Patriots, pledging to never play football again, and enrolling in online college courses, Antonio Brown is hinting that he may have an NFL future after all.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Brown left a cryptic tweet hinting at his NFL future. He wrote, "I'm still the best why stop now."

The post comes on the heels of Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus proclaiming that Brown is still interested in playing for an NFL team. Rosenhaus also revealed that there was mutual interest from several other teams.

With this cryptic tweet, it would appear that Rosenhaus wasn't just blowing smoke.

Brown was cut by the Patriots last week after allegedly sending "menacing" texts to a sexual assault accuser. The NFL is currently investigating allegations of sexual assault against Brown from multiple women.

As interested as Brown may be in returning to the NFL, teams will likely be wary about giving him guaranteed money.

Granted, he hasn't been suspended or placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List. But the investigation will likely be hanging over his head for the entire season.

Will Brown play for another team in 2019? Will he ever play another NFL game?
