Antonio Brown has been finally released by the New England Patriots following a huge drama and two sexual assault lawsuits. It was evident that the Patriots will have to remove him from the team as Brown was spoiling their good brand image.
Antonio Brown is the first player in NFL history to have his jersey from three different teams on clearance racks at the same time.

It doesn’t mean that other NFL teams won’t be interested in the wide receiver who impressed everyone against the Dolphins game. NFL teams such as Seahawks, Giants, Packers and Bills can make trade deals with Antonio Brown after New England Patriots released the star.
Seattle Seahawks are looking for a new wide receiver ever since Doug Baldwin retired and it has left a hole in the team roster. Tyler Lockett might be their next option but the 26-year-old receiver has never caught more than 57 passes in a single NFL season. D.K. Metcalf would have been a better fit but his preseason knee injury has only raised the problems for the Seahawks. Antonio Brown would be a much better option and head coach Pete Caroll knows how to handle him and utilize in the field.
New York Giants
New York Giants needs someone like Antonio Brown a lot right now given their players have scattered. Odell Beckham Jr. joined the Cleveland Browns, Golden Tate has been suspended and Eli Manning has been benched. Daniel Jones will have a lot of pressure to perform as the starting quarterback for the Giants and Brown could be a weapon that eases him and improve his play for the big games. Also, it would be amazing to see how Antonio Brown behaves in New York where all eyes will be on him.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers are doing good and Aaron Rodgers supported by Antonio Brown can be the key to their success in the NFL 2019 season. But apart from Davante Adams, there is no much depth and a single injury can end their playoffs dreams. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are not the considerable names for the Packers as one of them is still learning and the other one is injured. NFC has a lot of competition and the Packers would surely need Antonio Brown to get the edge over the other NFL teams.
Buffalo Bills have been interested in Antonio Brown since a long time and tried to sign him even in the March deal. The Bills lost him twice as he went to the Oakland Raiders and later to the New York Patriots. The Bills general manager Brandon Beane knows that despite the controversies, Brown is the best wide receiver in the league right now. Josh Allen is still learning as a quarterback and Antonio Brown will be the best weapon for him in the Bills.
