Antonio Brown – whom the Patriots cut earlier this season after just one game amid sexual assault allegations – made it known on Twitter that New England’s sputtering offense could use him.
“Rt to put AB in this game,” Brown tweeted Sunday night with the Patriots trailing the Texans in the fourth quarter.
AB is just fucking with us at this point ? pic.twitter.com/34xIlCLJre

The Patriots (10-2) ended up losing, 28-22, but not before Brown posted a video of his lone touchdown as a Patriot, with the “Christmas tree” emoji.
New England’s offense has struggled over the last few games, but a Brown-Patriots reunion still seems unlikely even as Brown has voiced his desires to return to the defending Super Bowl champs while Patriots coaches and players, according to CBS, would welcome him back.
That’s because it’s up to team owner Robert Kraft, whom Brown criticized on Twitter following his release. The NFL also could also block Brown from seeing the field by putting him on the NFL commissioner’s exempt list during its ongoing investigation into Brown.
Brown currently is countersuing his former female trainer, who claimed in a civil suit that the 31-year-old assaulted her on three separate occasions, including a rape in 2018.
