Following the latest chapter in the Antonio Brown saga, 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe wonder if Antonio Brown will look back and prefer being a social media celebrity over being enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Brady Quinn: "Instead of living enshrined forever in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, now he's turning into the villain, whatever you want to call him, the social media celebrity. It will end up being more of that, than it is about football, which is kind of a crazy time in our lives to be able to admit that."
Jonas Knox: "The idea that at some point, he's not going to look back and be like say, 'Damn, I did all of this for like a 2-3 year run on social media, just to be an influencer.' To me, guys like that are a are a dime a dozen, but how many guys are actually in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He's there. All he has to do is not be a disaster."
LaVar Arrington: "If Antonio Brown is indeed ruining his career for the sake of being polarizing and doing things that are going to help lift his rap career off the ground, or whatever it may be, there's a possibility at some point he will see that he can be more of a guide, more of a help, than a hinderance. And if he becomes that guy, we'll look back at his body of work and we'll be willing to forgive him for all the dumb S that he's done, that he's doing, and that he will do in the near future."
