Antonio Brown Hey NFL Teams … ‘Got Guaranteed Money? Call Me!!!’

Breaking News

“If your team got guaranteed money … tell ’em call me” — Antonio Brown (from his elliptical machine Monday night). 

“I ain’t got time to waste,” AB added … “I got FIVE KIDS. Ya heard!?”

It was all part of a 9 MINUTE rant on Instagram, which featured Brown working out like a maniac, sweating his face off … and trying to convince NFL teams to sign his ass.

“This is not a game people. This is not for show. This is not to be cool. This is really to inspire you that no one can determine your destination but you.”

“I’m bringing high heat, coach! I’m gonna be relentless this year. If your team got guaranteed money, they wanna get to know me and work with me? Tell ’em call me!” 

By the way … Brown is already in the middle of a huge, 4-year, $ 68 million contract with $ 19 million guaranteed. Unclear exactly what he’s looking for in a new deal. 

As we previously reported, Brown has been talking with Jerry Rice and REALLY wants to end up in San Francisco next season.

But, as NFL.com pointed out … since Brown is still technically under contract with the Steelers, any team that contacts him directly right now would be “tampering.” 

Brown doesn’t seem to care about that — he wants a new deal. And, a new nickname, saying he’s over being called “A.B.” and wants to switch to something sassier… “Mr. Big Chest.”

Good luck with that! 

Antonio Brown Rocks Bleached Mustache … It’s My Prerogative!!

Breaking News

Antonio Brown … we mustache you a question — what’s up with the dental drapes, man??

The NFL superstar posted a selfie with his son, Auto, on Wednesday … showing off a bright, new multi-colored dread look … complete with a bleach blonde caterpillar above his upper lip.

Of course, A.B.’s no stranger to head-turning looks … remember, he had the Nino Brown/Lego head ‘do a few years ago … and his fashion style is among the most unique in the league.

For a guy who dressed up as a hippo and sang “My Prerogative” in front of a bunch of people, we shouldn’t be surprised.

Keep doin’ you, A.B.

Antonio Brown $500k Jewelry Shopping Spree!!

EXCLUSIVE

Antonio Brown‘s business is definitely still boomin’ in the off-season … ’cause the NFL superstar just copped an insane amount of jewelry worth HALF A MILLION DOLLARS!!

You already know the Steelers receiver LOVES his diamonds … but the dude keeps topping himself … hittin’ up his good friend Gabriel the Jeweler for the massive order:

— Richard Mille watch ($ 190k value)

— 2 more G.O.A.T. rings ($ 20k value each. Remember, he already had one)

— 5-carat diamond earrings (50k value)

— An insane diamond chain ($ 220k value).

Add all that up, and you have a haul worth a whoppin’ $ 500k!!

No word on how much coin A.B. actually dropped … but the dude’s in a 4-year, $ 68 million contract … so he can afford to do this a LOT if he wants.

Boomin’, indeed.

Antonio Brown Gunning to Play for 49ers … Says Jerry Rice

Breaking News

Jerry Rice says he had a long talk with Antonio Brown about his NFL future — and the guy REALLY wants to play for the San Francisco 49ers. 

“He wants to come here really bad,” Rice said on the “Joe, Lo & Dibs” show on 95.7 The Game. 

“He’s talking about running the hills with me, doing all that and just working out … just picking my brain.”

Of course, A.B. is on his way outta Steel City after his recent antics led Steelers owner Art Rooney to say last week it’s “hard to envision” the WR coming back in 2019.

But, Rice says the Niners NEED to step in and trade for the wideout — guaranteeing Brown will behave — and flourish — if he’s given the opportunity in S.F.

“I would be looking forward to just passing some of that knowledge on to him and being around this guy because I know he’s a great individual.”

“If it was left up to me, he would be here in a heartbeat.”

Seems Jerry’s got a pretty strong finger on A.B.’s pulse — the two talk often … and Brown even has a painting of Rice up in his home gym.

And, per Jerry, Antonio’s a stand-up guy that would only make the Niners better.

“I don’t know what happened in Pittsburgh. But, I know that if this guy comes here to San Francisco, he’s going to do everything possible to help this team to win.”

Translation … get it done, Lynch!!!

Michael Irvin Julio & Antonio Should Join Forces … That’s What Stars Do These Days

EXCLUSIVE

The times they are a-changin’ … which is why a legendary NFL wide receiver thinks Julio Jones and Antonio Brown should team up to win it all.

TMZ Sports got Cowboys HOF’er Michael Irvin outside of Catch in Weho Friday night, and he tells us he’d like to see the Falcons WR and the Pittsburgh WR — who’s on the outs with the Steelers — get together to win a Super Bowl … because neither one of ’em has won anything yet.

We broke the story … Jones rejected the notion of A.B. coming to Atlanta, saying his team was good as is. But, Irvin thinks if LeBron can hook up with D. Wade, and Durant can hook up with Steph to get a ring … Julio should be a little more open to the idea.

As for whether Michael would have welcomed Jerry Rice to be his tag team partner back in the day … he’s not going that far. Besides … they both did fine on their own.

Antonio Brown Not Sweating Steelers Drama … ‘My Phone Line’s Open’

Breaking News

Antonio Brown clearly ain’t sweatin’ his Pittsburgh issues one bit … ’cause dude was smokin’ stogies with Chad Ochocinco on Friday and saying he’s, “still excited to play the game.”

A.B.’s been surrounded in Steelers drama the last few weeks … fighting with teammates and coaches and looking like he’s on the verge of being traded very soon.

But, if you think Brown’s sweatin’ all that beef … you’re wrong — ’cause dude was chillin’ with Ochocinco for happy hour Friday and sayin’ he’s fired up for his 2019 season already.

“Yes, I’m 31 and I’m still excited to play the game. I’m motivated, inspired, encouraged.”

As for where that season will be played … Steelers owner Art Rooney said Thursday it’d be “hard to envision” seeing it in Pittsburgh.

Does that mean San Francisco, Oakland or even Miami are all possibilities? Perhaps … all A.B.’s sayin’, for now, is he’s willing to listen to anybody that wants him.

“Stay by the phone. My phone line’s open.”

Ya hear that, Shanahan??

Julio Jones Falcons Don’t Want Antonio Brown … ‘We Good Over Here’

EXCLUSIVE

How dope would a 1-2 punch of Julio Jones and Antonio Brown look in Atlanta?!?!

Not that dope … according to Julio himself — who tells TMZ Sports he and the Falcons actually don’t want to see that at all.

“Nah, man. We tight over here. We good over here.”

Of course, the pairing will be possible in what appears to be a matter of days … seeing as A.B.’s antics have pretty much ended his time in the Steel City.

But, don’t expect Julio to openly recruit the stud wideout to the Falcons once that happens … ’cause when we got Julio out in L.A. — he seemed to want no part of it.

Why?? Sure seems like Jones thinks the baggage Brown would bring to the locker room wouldn’t be worth his insane production on the field.

As for the guys currently on Julio’s team … Jet spoke with us about Steve Sarkisian‘s firing and what he expects to see from new OC Dirk Koetter.

Steelers Owner Art Rooney II Antonio Brown Likely Done In Pitt Return ‘Hard to Envision’

Breaking News

Antonio Brown‘s time in Pittsburgh appears all but over … ’cause Steelers owner Art Rooney II doesn’t expect the NFL superstar to be on the team next season.

A.B.’s been at the center of controversy in Steel City after getting into heated exchanges with teammates, skipping practice, getting benched for a crucial game during a playoff push AND reportedly requesting a trade … just to name a few incidents.

Rooney says the team will NOT cut Brown, but made it very clear the Steelers aren’t afraid to move on from their top receiver … and said it would be “hard to envision” he’s with the team come training camp in July.

“There’s not much we can do right now. We have time to make a decision,” Rooney told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“We’ll look at all the options. We’re not going to release him, that’s not on the table. But I will say all other options are on the table.”

Rooney isn’t completely shutting the door on reconciling with Brown … he thinks making up is possible, but unlikely.

“Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we’re a long way away from thinking that can happen. We’re not closing the door on anything at this point.”

Antonio Brown Axed from ‘Masked Singer’ … You’re No Bobby Brown!

Breaking News

Antonio Brown finally got cut Wednesday night … but it wasn’t by the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

The superstar WR was one of the celebrity performers on “The Masked Singer” — and while the show was taped months ago, his song choice proved insanely relevant when it aired Wednesday night. 

Disguised in a hippo mask, Brown performed Bobby Brown‘s “My Prerogative” — which includes the famous lyrics … “Everybody’s talkin’ all this stuff about me. Why don’t they just let me live?”

It’s almost like he knew he was gonna be in the middle of a super nasty public feud with his team when he taped the show.

The judges thought the face under the hippo mask belonged to either Odell Beckham, Deion Sanders or Allen Iverson

Before he revealed his true identity, the judges had already sealed his fate — giving him the lowest score among the celebrity singers … which means he was axed from the show. 

Now, with his singing career essentially over … he’s gotta turn his focus back to football — and figure out how the hell he can either make peace with the Steelers or get outta Dodge. 

Antonio Brown & James Harrison Watch Tomlin Presser … Tease Bombshell Interview

Breaking News

Is a bombshell Antonio Brown interview on the way???

Sure seems like it … ’cause the Steelers superstar was watching Mike Tomlin‘s press conference Wednesday with James Harrison and promised a “big interview” is coming.

A.B. created quite the controversy in Pittsburgh over the last few days … reportedly getting into a spat with teammates at practice, getting benched for Sunday’s game AND requesting a trade.

Things have gotten so bad … Ben Roethlisberger says Brown won’t even call him back — and Tomlin said he’s “disappointed” with the way the WR’s been acting.

Brown seems ready to tell his side of the story … ’cause while he was watching his head coach field questions about him from reporters, he said an “exclusive” interview is on the way.

“Stay tuned, we about to do this big interview,” Brown says.

Seems the interview could be REAL damaging to the Steelers … ’cause Harrison’s made it clear he’s not a huge fan of Tomlin’s — and Brown’s certainly not the coach’s biggest supporter right now either.

So, as A.B. says … stay tuned.
