Bears fans not interested in signing Antonio Brown after Raiders release


After a training camp/preseason full of antics, the Antonio Brown-Raiders marriage officially ended on Saturday, with the team releasing the mercurial wide receiver.

Brown has as much talent as any wide receiver in the NFL. However, the 31-year-old gave the Raiders numerous headaches in training camp/preseason. Let's review them! Brown:

-Entered training camp via hot air balloon (this was kind of cool)
-Missed time due to frostbitten feet after not wearing proper attire during a cryotherapy session
-Lost two grievances with the NFL over a helmet dispute.
-Posted a fine notice on Instagram after missing a practice and walkthrough
-Got into a spat with Raiders GM Mike Mayock for that fine, which led to the Raiders fining Brown again (reportedly for $215,073.53)

Got all that? Good! So, despite Brown's talent, every team likely won't show interest in him, now that he's a free agent. When it comes to the Bears, the consensus is that the team should avoid signing 31-year-old All-Pro.

Have no fear, though, Bears fans. Based on how the Bears' culture will already be put to the test -- and head coach Matt Nagy's most memorable quote from training camp -- it seems unlikely that they bring Brown to Chicago.

“We don’t have turds on this team," Nagy said.
