Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown has flirted with the idea of dressing for an arena football game this season.
He even showed up to an Albany Empire practice last Thursday and hinted that he would play in one of the team’s upcoming games. But Brown didn’t show up for last Saturday’s game.
The five-time All-Pro receiver previously hinted that quarterback Cam Newton would soon join him for an Albany Empire game.
But now Brown appears to be more serious about being associated with the 2015 NFL MVP.

“If anyone saw Cam Newton please let them know he hasn’t thrown a touchdown to me yet in a game and now we can finally make it happen,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “I offer Cam 150k a game with me, spam his account.”
Brown, who won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, recently mentioned that he had been “in touch” with Newton about joining the organization “somehow.”

Brown is part owner of the Albany Empire and has had a tumultuous career as an owner.
The team’s former coach Damon Ware has reportedly resigned due to back pay. But the team claims that the lost paychecks were the result of a change in its payroll operations.
In an interview in early May, Brown said that everyone had been paid what was owed to them.
After missing the May 27 game, Brown could play in Albany’s home game on June 17. Based on his lucrative offer to Newton, it seems clear that Brown wants to catch passes from the NFL veteran.
