Charlamagne tha God: “How do you feel about Drew Rosenhaus? I had Terrell Owens on here and he doesn’t f*ck with him.”
Antonio Brown: “Drew Rosenhaus took advantage of a lot of guys from Miami and a lot of guys from situations like me. You see at the end of the tunnel he’s usually not there. Guys like Terrell Owens, Fred Taylor, Chad Ochocinco – a lot of great guys who come from my area who had great careers and were great players, but after their careers you don’t see them doing anything. Terrell Owens; the guy has got no money and went down the wrong path, and is still not in a good position. When I study the game and the history of players who paved the way and did a good job in the league with their careers -- Hall of Fame type guys -- you see them working on sports shows and that’s all they do… I respect T.O. but I think he could have done more.” (Full Interview Above)
Antonio Brown joined The Breakfast Club on Friday, as the disgraced former NFL All-Pro wide receiver made his first public appearance since his mounting legal problems turned him into one of the most untouchable athletes of the era.
One of the most notable topics of the nearly 40 minute interview with hosts Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee was Brown taking shots at former agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Rosenhaus terminated his relationship with Brown on January 16th, saying Brown needed to ‘get help.’
Rosenhaus is arguably the most recognizable face in the sports world when it comes to NFL agents, and garnered prominent media attention for his days representing former NFL diva receiver Terrell Owens.
Brown said Rosenhaus had made a career of taking advantage of former athletes from his area, and questioned Rosenhaus’ loyalty, saying ‘You see at the end of the tunnel he’s usually not there.'
Brown said Rosenhaus once represented All-Pros Owens, Chad Ochocinco, and Fred Taylor, and then said of all three of those players: ‘Guys like Terrell Owens, Fred Taylor, Chad Ochocinco -- a lot of great guys who come from my area who had great careers and were great players, but after their careers you don’t see them doing anything.'
Brown was vocal about his distrust of Rosenhaus days after the breakup. Brown posted an Instagram story two days later on January 18th of a screenshotted photo of a text message exchange between Rosenhaus and AB with the caption ‘@AGENT BOY BEEN FRAUD SET ME UP WITH A LOT OF BAD WORKERS PUT ME IN THIS POSITION. THEY TRY TO TELL U THEY HELP U WHEN U PAYING THEM.”
With Brown's NFL career cratering, Brown has explored becoming a hip hop artist, recently dropping a single tilted 'Whole Lotta Money', and is apparently working on an album titled 'No More White Women 2020', that will reportedly feature Sean Kingston.
