Packers Are the Betting Favorite to Sign Antonio Brown… What?
Antonio Brown is looking for a job. Brown is a little different than our friends who got displaced due to COVID-19. He has been out of work for a good year and a half. Much of that is his own fault. Brown does not seem mentally stable to be a football player. But it appears that a team will sign him this Fall. BetOnline sees the Packers as the betting favorite to sign him. While that would be interesting and a major development for the Packers season, it seems like a far-fetched idea. Online gambling books sometimes know things more than we do, but this seems like a ploy to get Packers’ fans money.

While friend of the program Murph has banged this drum like he’s Animal from The Muppets, I cannot see it. Brian Gutekunst has not proven himself to be a risk-taker on questionable character guys. Ted Thompson had his moments. Ron Wolf definitely did too. Maybe that’s why I’m having a hard time seeing this one through. Brown and Aaron Rodgers would be a dynamic combination though. I also think the Packers have enough veterans to keep Brown in check, but I worry the former superstar will think he’s the top dog in the offense when really it is Davante Adams or Aaron Jones.
Vegas, or the Cayman Islands in this case, always tends to know more than us but I don’t see it.
