From the looks of the reactions on Twitter, the general consensus around the NFL world is that it's difficult to take AB's word at face value. "They go to a different school though so you probably haven’t heard of them," one fan joked. "Maybe it's true, but it's also AB, not really the most reliable source," another added.

For now, Brown will undergo surgery to clean up an ankle injury that bothered him for much of the 2021 season. And from the sound of things, he'll be keeping his phone lines open.
