Former Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is not afraid of making headlines. Now, he has posted a tweet directed at a legendary member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Find out what Brown said and how this came about below.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown Blasts Michael Irvin
Christmas Eve is supposed to be the start of a warm and friendly holiday season. However, Brown’s tweet this morning was anything but that. This is what he tweeted and directed at Michael Irvin:
“Michael Irvin stay off the cocaine I got way more stats then you faggot you from broward not miami we slap the shit your old ass
Merry chrisma PlayerHater”
This is not the first time Antonio Brown came after a legendary NFL player. Earlier this year, he even criticized his former teammate and likely Hall of Famer. Essentially, Brown blamed Tom Brady for his infamous shirtless exit from MetLife Stadium.
Why Did Antonio Brown Go After Michael Irvin?
So, Antonio Brown had to have a reason for going after Michael Irvin the way he did, right? Well, technically yes. However, it is a dumb reason.
Two days ago, Irvin revealed his Mount Rushmore of wide receivers to ever play the game. To no one’s surprise, Irvin put himself in that Mount Rushmore. Jerry Rice is also someone no one would argue with. However, Irvin finished this with Drew Pearson and current WR Tyreek Hill. Clearly, Brown did not agree with those choices over himself.
Comparing Wide Receivers
So, is Brown right to have a beef with this? Well, he may not want to hear this, but Irvin has a valid argument. Hill is likely going to finish his career with more receiving yards and touchdown receptions than Brown. However, Drew Pearson is a little more difficult to compare due to the rules at the time he played.
