Talented but unemployed NFL receiver Antonio Brown reportedly met with Roger Goodell on Thursday, hoping to resolve his status and emerge from the purgatory that has left him unsigned since he was released by the Patriots on September 20.
Scarcely a blub about the meeting emerged through media coverage in the two days following the scheduled interview.

“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em; know when to fold ’em…” The iconic song seems to comport with Antonio Brown’s situation. In what realistically was only a couple of weeks ago but now seems like eons, I wrote about how Brown had played his cards perfectly in landing with what is presumed his preferred destination with the New England Patriots and securing a high-dollar contract, following his controversial departures from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders. He even picked up a new helmet endorsement deal after filing two grievances challenging the requirement to wear only new league-approved helmets.
“Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin’ is knowin’ what to throw away and knowin’ what to keep…”
Apparently after scoring a royal flush with the Patriots

Much debate has swirled around whether Antonio Brown should be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list or face suspension since news broke of a lawsuit alleging that he raped a former trainer. If the allegations are true, then Antonio Brown should be punished, but at this stage, all the public and presumably the Patriots and NFL have is a “he said/she said” scenario, with the only evidence an unsworn lawsuit filed in federal court and a statement by Brown’s attorney refuting the allegations.

“I love it when a plan comes together.” This line was made famous by George Peppard’s character Hannibal Smith, in the 1980’s series A-Team. Antonio Brown is probably putting the line to good use as he enjoys a day off on the first Sunday of the NFL’s 100th season.
What appeared as madness to many appears to have been a well-orchestrated plan by Brown to extract himself from an increasingly untenable spot in Pittsburgh and navigate to a destination where his talents might be better appreciated and labor could take a few lessons from Brown’s “madness.”
