Antonio Brown embraces Timberwolves' recruiting pitch on social media




 

If he can produce as many touchdowns as he has headlines in 2019, Raiders star Antonio Brown would obliterate just about every NFL receiving record.

The controversial wideout has been active on Twitter all week -- notably crowdsourcing for a newer version of his unapproved helmet -- but his recent exchange with the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves might be even stranger.

While ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter was covering a T-Wolves-Rockets game in February, Brown posted an Instagram featuring a photoshopped AB donning a T-Wolves No. 84 jersey.

With all the stunning workout videos Brown posted this offseason, he's certainly in good enough shape to be an NBA player. However, his 5-foot-10 frame doesn't exactly lend itself to domination on the hardwood.

AB would be wise not to quit his day job, regardless of what headwear is required.
