It looks like Antonio Brown wasn't pulling our leg when he announced he would be leaving the NFL for good. Rather than work on finding another team to play for in 2019, Brown is going back to school.

Taking to Instagram today, Brown revealed that he has is taking online courses at Central Michigan University. The post, included in his Instagram story, said, “Back to school.”

Among the classes Brown is taking are high-level courses in management, English, sociology, and religion.

Considering that some of the courses run until mid-December, it looks like he'll be a little too preoccupied to play an NFL game.

Brown attended Central Michigan from 2007 to 2009 before entering the 2010 NFL Draft after his junior year. He was a two-time All-American and left for the NFL as one of the school's all-time leading receivers.

But Brown never graduated from Central Michigan, and apparently he wants to correct that.

Brown was released by the Patriots this past Friday after just 11 days with the team. He had over 100 receiving yards in his lone game for the team, but his off-the-field controversies were too much for the team to deal with.

The NFL is currently investigating various allegations of sexual assault that have been levied against him, and whether he violated the league's personal conduct policy.

Even if he wanted to return to the NFL, he may have to wait until those investigations conclude to sign.
