Deion Sanders wants to see Antonio Brown back in primetime.
The Hall of Fame cornerback and NFL Network analyst shared an Instagram post on Sunday of himself working out with the troubled wide receiver who remains unsigned following sexual assault and harassment incidents that surfaced last year.
Sanders advocated for Brown and expressed that a comeback is on the way for the 31-year-old All-Pro receiver.
“My son came to town to WORK! On his Game, his Life, On his Thoughts, on his Tomorrow & on ANTONIO BROWN! I Love him to life and I can’t wait to witness this comeback Story called A,B & See,” Sanders wrote. “I know what I know and I pray u all get to see what I know to be true about ANTONIO BROWN. God bless y’all and please have a productive peaceful day we are Growing & Going!”
Brown responded to Sanders in the comments, “I love you pops.”
The wide receiver has had a downward spiral since he was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders last year.
He was cut by the Raiders before playing a single game last season after disputes with the front office, and was cut again by the New England Patriots after playing just one game following allegations of sexual assault and harassment.
The NFL is still investigating those incidents, as well as a third incident in which Brown was arrested after a dispute with a moving truck driver.
There have also been several other off-the-field incidents that have raised concerns about Brown’s mental health and led to agent Drew Rosenhaus dumping his client.
Brown has since hired agent Ed Wasielewski to help him get back into the league, but until the NFL reaches a resolution and disciplines Brown, which it has not shown any rush to do, a return to the NFL will have to wait.
