If Brown is not a top 10 receiver, then you must be watching a different sport than me.  

I think he's a top 10 receiver but I also think he works extremely well with Roethlisberger, who knows how to get him the ball in spots he can take advantage of. On games where Pittsburgh had to use their backup QB, you could see that Brown would get completely shut down because the QB wouldn't know to just trust AB to make a play the way Roethlisberger does. That QB would see heavy coverage near Brown on every play and just go elsewhere on plays where Roethlisberger would still force the ball to Brown. He's definitely still an elite receiver but I think there's a really good chance of a substantial dropoff in his numbers with a different QB, unless that QB puts in overtime to be comfortable with Brown...and that would require Brown to be willing to put in overtime working with the QB as well.

I think any time a back up QB comes in, production from almost all offensive players goes down.

Julian Love had some speed issues at the combine but has great football instincts at all DB spots and is really agile.

Would he be worth a look in the 3rd round by the Bears?

I think so.  He might be more of a slot CB, but in the 3rd round that would be a solid pick.

He might not make it that far.

When teams come to you, that's a signal that you're doing the wrong thing.

I think process wise drafting a rb every year and trading them a year before free agency is going to be correct 9 times out of 10.

Howard's production has dipped every year since his first year.

I worry about him in the locker room, but He caught 104 passes last year and 15 touchdowns.  I'd love to know what 10 WR are better than him. 

Jones, Beckham, Hopkins, Hill, Smith-Schuster, Thomas, Evans, Hilton, Cooper, Thielen

That was pretty easy.

Evans, TY, and Amari are better than AB? You’re really whiffing on your takes the past few days.

They aren't better than AB three years ago but they are better than AB now. The decline is clearly on for Brown and if he didn't have Smith-Schuster and Big Ben his numbers would've been really pedestrian.

Brown caught more TD this year than Hilton has in the past three years.  

You keep saying Brown has declined.  Where is the proof of that?  I mean, I'm assuming he will at some point, but it hasn't happened yet.

Jones, Brown, Hopkins, Adams, Hill are probably top 5.  OBJ, Evans, Thomas make a good case to be in there.

Honestly even if Brown was 10th best in the league, it's still really good.  There are a ton of good WR in the NFL right now.

I cant think of a more meaningless stat than TD's. I mean, all NFL stats are kind of meaningless but that one in particular is subject to so much variance and factors outside the players control, especially for WR of all positions.

Brown is slower. You can see it when he runs. Compare him with Smith-Schuster and if you just ignored the name of the back of the jersey one would look like a Ferrari compared to a Vauxhall.

There are quite a few WR in the NFL, one of them is even on the Bears, who I would feel much better about going into 2019 with than Antonio Brown.

edit: Sounds like there was a deal agreed upon, but AB said thanks, but no thanks.

Getting open in the end zone, now overrated.   That's one that I haven't heard before.

Did the Bears trade for someone or are they going sign someone?

I'm not sure what AB expects here, good teams can't afford to trade for him, and Pittsburgh has every right to ask for a lot because they will be penalized by his cap hit this year.  It's either suck it up and play for Pittsburgh or a bad team overpays for him and he enjoys the Lesean McCoy experience

AB posted fake news on the Insta story from ESPN. This is hilarious.
