Jerry Rice says Antonio Brown deserves an Academy Award for the performance he put on in Oakland … ’cause the superstar played EVERYONE like a fiddle to ultimately land with the Patriots.
The G.O.A.T. weighed in on the disastrous few weeks surrounding AB’s time with the Raiders on 95.7 The Game on Monday … saying Brown got exactly what he wanted all along, and channeled his inner Denzel Washington to make it happen.
“He was a Denzel Washington and he won the Oscar,” Rice said. “He won an Oscar, guys. Imma be honest with you. Because He had all of us sold. Then all of a sudden, you started to get all of this drama, what was happening with the Raiders.”
It seems Rice is insinuating that Brown had a master plan from the beginning to sabotage things in Oakland to force the team to cut him so he could sign with Bill Belichick‘s Pats.
“He was a Denzel all the way and he pulled it off. He really did.”
Jerry admits AB personally played him too … saying he took AB at his word when he said he wanted to be a San Francisco 49er earlier this year.
Rice also thinks more players will start to follow AB’s blueprint when it comes to getting out of contracts they don’t want to be in … with the hopes of landing with a specific team in mind.
