The NFL is such a weird place.
On Monday, in a brief exchange on Twitter between a fan and Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown spoke out at a comment that suggested he is a product of Ben Roethlisberger.
Trade me let’s find out https://t.co/4OeepI78zy— Antonio Brown (@AB84) September 17, 2018
The response seemed innocuous at the time, but on Tuesday, things got weird as Brown did not show up to practice, with no explanation to his team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Now, the books are getting involved, which is something:
Bookmaker.eu, one of the world’s largest onlines sportsbooks, just released odds on where Brown might end up. The Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals are the frontrunners to trade for Brown, according to oddsmakers.
First, how is Brown even available, second, the Browns and the Cardinals are the favorites to get him?
WHAT TEAM WILL ANTONIO BROWN PLAY FOR NOV 15, 2018?
Cleveland Browns +1000
Arizona Cardinals +1000
Philadelphia Eagles +1600
Tennessee Titans +1600
Indianapolis Colts +2000
Oakland Raiders +2000
San Francisco 49ers +2800
Pittsburgh Steelers -2000
Field - Any Other Team +1200
Obviously the Steelers are the odds on favorites, and the Steelers trading Brown seems implausible, but I cannot comprehend where or how these odds came about.
Yet, here it is, the Cardinals are a favorite to have Antonio Brown on their team?
