Antonio Brown: I'm a great player that has done everything in the game

Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown has revealed he does not plan to take in 2022. Brown has been a free agent ever since he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January. In Week 17, Brown took off his pads and stormed off the field during the Buccaneers and New York Jets game.
Brown will be turning 34 in July. "Obviously we live the game, but you can't play forever," Brown said in an interview during Fan Controlled League, via CBS Sports. "I think I'm a great player that's done everything in the game." When asked directly about the 2022 season, Brown said we won't be seeing him on the field.
"Nah," Brown said, "don't play yourself looking (for) me to play."
Brown happy with his career
Brown is a Super Bowl champion and for many years was considered as one of the best wide receivers in the game. Now, Brown is ready to focus on some other things.
Some think Brown will now fully committ to his rap career as recently he released his debut album named "Paradigm." "I do what I want," Brown said. "Obviously I'm a 12-year veteran, one of the best players of all time, and my job is to live.
Life is about living. We all gonna die, I'm a rapper, I do shows, I'm an independent businessman. Business booming." In April, Brown said he wanted to return to the NFL. "I still feel like I can put up big numbers, and I see what these guys are getting paid.
I just wonder why my value isn't being upheld as the same," Brown said in April. Reflecting on the wide receiver market and value, Brown said he was happy to see wideouts paid well. "I'm happy for those guys. I'm really grateful for those guys who pioneered the game.
They take it further, and made their prices go up. So I'm grateful for those guys to get what they deserve," Brown said. "My situation is never about anyone else. It's just all about getting what I deserve because I know what I am and what I stand for, and you can't play with me, the numbers are the numbers." The Buccaneers suffered a big blow when they released Brown and their playoff run ended with a divisional round loss versus the Los Angeles Rams.
The Buccaneers were hampered by injuries at the wide receiver position and having Brown in the postseason would have certainly helped.
