Antonio Brown is still holding out hope that he’ll be able to return to the NFL this season, as evidenced by his recent #FreeAB hashtag on social media, but it looks like it’ll be a cold day in hell if that happens. Even the XFL has no interest in the four-time All-Pro receiver.
Following the XFL’s inaugural draft on Tuesday, the league’s official twitter account took a jab at Brown, playing into the #FreeAB hashtag.
Brown has been quite active on social media in recent weeks, including his recent instagram live video, during which he described himself as the best receiver in the game and encouraged his supporters to reach out to the Patriots on his behalf.
“[If] you guys follow the Patriots, tell them to call me,” Brown says. “They still gotta pay me, so might as well let me earn it.”
