Within minutes of Antonio Brown’s semi-reinstatement, the phone lines lit up across the Philadelphia region. There are a good number of fans who would love to see the mercurial receiver in midnight green.
Would any franchise be crazy enough to take a flier on Brown? Remember, he dragged two organizations through the mud (Steelers, Raiders) and then blatantly lied to the Patriots before alleged sexual harassment got him kicked out of the league. One more thing, the 32-year-old also pleaded no contest to felony burglary with battery charges and two lesser misdemeanor charges, per ESPN.

Brown has promised to be the “best version of himself” moving forward and he continues to rebuild his severely damaged reputation. Things had gotten so bad last year that super-agent Drew Rosenhaus fired him as a client.
“I want to be the best version of myself on and off the field, and I will do my best to be a great teammate,” Brown wrote on Instagram. “I appreciate the NFL giving me the opportunity to continue to work on myself and improve. I am thankful and grateful for this opportunity to play a game that I truly love and I look forward to joining a new team soon. Thank you to my family and all those that have supported me. I will show the fans my appreciation for this second chance by having the best season of my career.”

Brown’s name has kept popping up as a possible replacement for Marquise Goodwin who decided to opt-out and protect his family. It can be argued that the Eagles don’t need to add another receiver to the mix, not with the 10 guys already on the roster. Let the rookies — Jalen Reagor, John Hightower, Quez Watkins, Manasseh Bailey — and former practice-squad ace Greg Ward Jr. take advantage of those extra reps and state their cases for the 53-man roster.
But, Brown would be an intriguing option if they wanted a reclamation project. He was arguably the best receiver in the league in his prime and dominated the last decade. He racked up 11,263 yards on 841 receptions from 2010-2019 while leading the NFL in receiving yards twice (2014, 2017) and in receptions twice (2014, 2015). His 15 touchdowns were tops in 2018, with 75 total scores for his career.

Yes, Brown would be a significant upgrade from Goodwin and vault to the top of the depth chart as the best receiver on the team — if, and only if, the seven-time Pro Bowler could keep his head on straight. That’s a huge if.Brown Doesn’t Vibe with Eagles’ Established Culture
Should the Eagles inquire about Brown? Better yet, is he worth the headache? Probably not.
The Eagles have a long-standing tradition of shying away from problem children (minus Terrell Owens) and Brown is the NFL’s equivalent of Dennis the Menace. While the thought of Brown starting opposite DeSean Jackson has to be tempting — to almost everyone except the Dallas Cowboys — it needs to perish. He is just too much of a risk as SportsRadio 94WIP’s Howard Eskin accurately pointed out.
As good as Antonio Brown is on the field I would worry he will find a way to screw it up again. Not my cup of tea. https://t.co/s7t9fGk0Yw

Besides, the Eagles have talked about their culture over the years and spent an insane amount of time cultivating it. It’s not just lip service to them. Trust is a word that matters.
“You hit the nail on the head when you said the word trust,” head coach Doug Pederson told reporters back in May. “That’s been my messaging throughout the entire offseason program, and that was a word that I actually when I thought about where we were as a football team coming off of last season, really the last two seasons, we needed to trust. Then we hit the pandemic, and now more than ever, we need trust, we need to trust each other.”

RHOA Star Porsha Williamss Recent Social Media Activity Sparks Rumors Of A Split From Dennis McKinley
The recent social media activity of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has many fans wondering if she has broken up with Dennis McKinley. The reality actress turned activist has unfollowed her fiance on social media, and her most recent caption has further fueled fan speculation.
Porsha posted a photo to Instagram, where she was wearing a red dress that hugged all of her curves and the caption had some followers questioning her relationship status.
“You was really really lucky, RELAX,” Porsha wrote. The caption ended with the hashtag, “OVA.”
Fans were quick to speculate that the two had broken up once again. The comment section of her latest post was filled with fire and heart emojis regarding Porsha’s appearance, but some also picked up on the caption as well as other clues.
“Now that’s a break up pic,” a fan wrote.
Others added some other evidence to support break up rumors.
“They aren’t following each other Nd she deleted the pics of them with her in the same dress,” a fan noticed.
“Awww did you guys break up I see you both have unfollowed each other again,” another asked.
A few were sad at the notion that the couple didn’t work out.
“I was rooting for their lil family.”
Porsha and Dennis had just recently gotten back together after some time apart. The businessman admitted to cheating during the last season of the hit reality show. However, as fans saw during Season 12, Porsha and Dennis were able to come back together after attending counseling sessions and learning more about one another. The two share a one-year-old daughter, Pilar Jhena. Despite getting back together, the star admitted that she was taking things slow.
“Now, I’m taking my time, and we are working on us, the relationship as parents, and figuring it out. It’s not something that just goes away. He has definitely had to pay his dues with the situation,” Porsha explained during an After Show appearance.
This isn’t the first time Porsha has made headlines recently. The reality star has become a vocal advocate for social justice. As The Inquisitr previously reported, The Real Housewives of Atlanta actress was arrested in Louisville last month. Along with several others, Porsha was arrested at the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron during a protest in support of Breonna Taylor. Porsha was there with Dennis, and the pair made a video before the arrest, where she admitted to being nervous.Paras Griffin / Getty Images
