Antonio Brown Was a Necessary Evil for Bruce Arians

Today on The Dan Patrick Show, Dan reacts to the bizarre situation that saw Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown leaving in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets. Dan explains that Brown continually quits on great organizations who give him a chance to play in the NFL, yet, if you have talent, somehow you are constantly given another chance.

Dan Patrick: “It’s not a question of if, but when with Antonio Brown. And that’s the way it is, that’s the way it’s been. Yesterday, he quit on his team. He quit on Tom Brady. And Brady was the one who vouched for him. Because I truly believe (Brady) went to Bruce Arians and said, ‘I’ll take care of it. I’ll handle him.’ I don’t think Arians wanted him back. I just think Bruce felt like Brown was a necessary evil. Brown has had the opportunities with good organizations and good people. If you have talent, somehow you get another chance. The guys that don’t have talent don’t get those chances. (Brown) might get another chance, but that’s not the question. Is he going to listen to somebody? Is he going to realize he’s the problem?”
