There's a wide belief throughout the NFL and its fans that a future in the NFL for Antonio Brown is out of question. Others, like former NFL great Keyshawn Johnson, disagree.

Brown is officially no longer a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The organization cut the former star on Thursday morning, putting an end to an awkward four-day stretch between the two sides.

Common logic tells us Brown won't play another down in the NFL. He's been given multiple second chances but just can't seem to stay out of trouble. But sooner or later, an NFL team desperate for talent will pull the trigger.

Johnson thinks it's only a matter of time before Brown is playing NFL football again.

"When you are a very talented individual, there's somebody out in the National Football League ... that will say, 'I like him. He helps us win,'" Johnson said.

If Antonio Brown is going to try and get back into the NFL, he's going to need to win over an NFL head coach.

Brown allegedly told Bruce Arians during the Bucs-Jets game last Sunday that he wasn't going to go back into the game because of his lack of targets. Arians then lost his cool and told Brown to leave the field, and that's what led to his infamous exit. Arians was clearly tired of the antics and wanted Brown off his football team.

Talent hasn't ever been the question surrounding Brown. It's always been about his attitude, which is nothing short of toxic.
