Back when he was a Raider, on the night of our rookie draft, he was sold for a 1st, a 2nd, and a 3rd in a blockbuster beer-infused draft night trade.

The league chat banter around this price ever since has been positively BRUTAL :lol:

He was acquired in the off-season in my league for Diggs + 2020 1st + 2021 1st (got back 2 2nds). As much as we give him sh!t for the trade, he won the championship this year anyway :lol:

Not to be "that guy", but I'm seeing this everywhere the Court - appointed evaluation as some type of insult to AB / court noticing there is an issue.

This is basically a boilerplate / entirely standard thing Courts give to everyone after arraignment as condition of release. (You'll notice the drug / alcohol evaluation too, when been no evidence of that). Its just the basic 2 tests they require of everyone.

Hopefully it leads to him getting some help though. I doubt he's taking it seriously though.

Source: lawyer.
This is definitely not the case in every state (and not in mine), but I believe you are correct that it is what is happening here. I think court ordering that at arraignment is excessive and glad my state doesn't operate this way.

So AB is going on the apology tour right now. Appears he's seeing somebody, and listening to somebody....for now. What's his prognosis for 2020? I think he plays, at some point, but who takes a shot at him?

I get that the guy is talented, but he's clearly a cancer in the locker room. I think he could go to a team that has Brady on it, if he leaves NE. I could also see teams like the Eagles, Seahawks, Saints(who checked in on him last year) or maybe even the Cowboys taking a chance on him. The Dallas/Cooper situation will be one to monitor with them. I traded him last year for a 2021 2nd because I thought he played his last down in the NFL, could be wrong though.

I am a Raiders fan, trust me, I agree with you. I just know the NFL, and with guys like Hunt still playing (lesser talent, comparatively) despite multiple off field issues, I think there is a team out of 32 that will take a shot.

I'm sure someone will give him another shot as talent usually wins out. It's strange though because T.O had less issues off the field than AB and he really never got another shot later in his career. Also, did not know that you were a Raiders fan, really like them going forward if they can get some stability from Carr at QB and add some play makers at WR. Crosby was a nice surprise last year as well but could add some talent at LB and at DB. Will be interesting to see what they do with their 2 firsts this year.

At age 37 T.O. had 72 receptions for 983 and 9 TD's......AB is 31

Don't see the T.O linkage as relevant at all given the huge age difference.

Anything is possible I suppose but a Steeler reunion seems unlikely!

He burned that bridge, pissed on it, gave it cryotherapy, built a new bridge, scored a TD, burned that bridge and then stomped on that bridge and made all the other bridges afraid of him

Someone will sign him no doubt. He will screw up again, almost no doubt.

More rumblings of TB wanting to bring AB with him. Anything to see here? What would TB look like with that WR corps?

This is a depiction of what it would look like. A sandbox, 3-4 kids, and only 1 shovel that AB would undoubtedly have a death grip on. And if he wasn't holding the shovel he'd be crying to mommy. Stay clear.

I couldn't imagine being a team trying to create a championship culture and then bringing in Antonio Brown. Too many distractions and you can find competent #3 receivers in the draft or free agency who won't give you headaches.

Oh, but he’s changed. Haven’t you seen his apology tour?
