With all the dirty games that linebacker Vontaze Burfict has known over the years in the NFL, none of them may have been more notorious and harder to see than the one in which he beats Antonio Brown with a blow to the head. Of course, when the Raiders added both Brown and Burfict in this off-season, questions arose as to how they would get along.
Burfict wiped out the idea of tensions between Brown and Brown He can not wait to get to know him, and the two are "perhaps the closest friends in the team."
Brown quickly tweeted to let everyone know that he and Burfict spoke and there are no hard feelings. [1
"It's funny how the NFL turns you into the bad guy with your own teammate now! "Brown said in his Instagram post. "Build a war within a war, when we all basically belong to the same team, even though we have different jerseys [wear]! Yes, things happen on the pitch with all the respect it has in the game! After the game there is a real life and we have families as real people! Encourage your brother not to defeat them or to start a war between them, in which we already have enough wars! Encourage your people to encourage your brother to stop someone from tying him to the circumstances.
If anyone should understand how the media works, it's Brown. He used the media to create a spectacle and move out of Pittsburgh. He can not get upset now that they've spent the last 24 hours wondering how he and Burfict will co-exist.
It is also the low season. There are no games to discuss, unless you are really in the AAF.
The NFL does not make anyone a villain with their team-mates, but if Brown thought it was important to clear the air, he just did it.
