Not that Antonio Brown was going to be signed by an NFL team anytime soon, but now there are more hurdles to that comeback.

Brown was formally charged for an incident in which he was accused of assaulting a moving truck driver on Jan. 23. ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler reported Brown was charged with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges according to a Broward County (Fla.) court document.

Brown played one game last season, for the New England Patriots. Throughout 2019 his behavior became erratic and he was accused of rape. The NFL has not announced any punishment for Brown, but the latest charges will presumably be considered too if Brown ever signs with a team.

In January, Brown and his personal trainer were accused of assaulting a moving truck driver at Brown’s home in Hollywood, Florida. Brown allegedly refused to pay moving fees and then assaulted the driver while forcibly removing and damaging contents inside the truck.

After that incident, a county prosecutor said police were called to Brown’s residence 18 times over a two-month stretch.

ESPN.com said Brown was charged in January with felony burglary with battery, though that wasn’t included in the state filing from March 20 that was cited in the report.

Brown played nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and made the Pro Bowl seven times. Then last year he was traded to the Oakland Raiders, who cut him before the season started due to a series of bizarre incidents.

What a waste of talent. How hard is it to stay out of trouble.

I know. Still can’t believe Charles Rogers freaking died. I mean, it’s not that unbelievable based on his life, but you almost feel like AB is heading for a similar fate. Dude needs help or someone in his life to get him into a long term support group.

You only need to go back to his second contract and the day he signed it. His teammate said they created a monster. Huge ego. Roethlisberger was more than half of Brown’s success. He’s done nothing without him. Roethlisberger has done it with over ten receivers. That doesn’t take away from his skill set or Brown’s work ethic, but it says a bunch about Roethlisberger and the receivers who have benefited from him, AB included. He literally thinks no rules apply to him. I don’t think it is mental illness. You would think you might find delusions of grandeur, sociopathic derivatives or some such, but I believe he thinks he is above the law. When he walked out of the office and spoke to his teammate, there was no switch he flipped, it was confirmation to him, he was better than other people around him and that entitled him to become what he is.
