Antonio Brown continues to make his bid for a return to the NFL and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is his ambassador. This time, during an appearance on The Pivot podcast, Mayweather offered $20 million to any team willing to take a chance on Brown.
Brown left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in dramatic fashion last season, walking out midgame while doing jumping jacks and throwing up the peace sign. Mayweather is now vouching for Brown, giving NFL teams an offer they can not refuse.
“This is for any team that’s watching right now. We’ll make them a deal. If they sign AB, and AB goes through the whole season with no problems at all, then they gotta give us $20 million,” Mayweather said. “But if he mess up, then we gotta give them $20 million. So, if any team wants to match that, reach out to us.”
Floyd Mayweather’s friendship with Antonio Brown
Since his exit from the NFL, Brown has been spotted courtside at various NBA games with Mayweather. The pair is also reportedly working on a documentary together.
The two controversial sports figures have gravitated towards each other more and more as the years go by. Brown celebrated Mayweather’s 45th birthday earlier this year at a party that included guests like Aaron Donald and Kanye West.
Mayweather, who says Brown is misunderstood, recently announced he will return to the ring on May 14. Brown, meanwhile, is seriously interested in making a bid to purchase the Denver Broncos alongside West’s Donda Sports company.
