Antonio Brown recently made a plea to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to “call me” about potentially returning to the NFL this season.
Jones, on the other hand, does not sound like he is going to pick up the phone.
“We’re good,” Jones told TMZ Sports when asked about Brown’s interest. “But, we want to give these young guys a real chance to make this team.”
Dallas is a bit thin at the receiver position, though. While CeeDee Lamb has emerged as the team’s top target, they’ve lost Amari Cooper to the Browns via trade and do not expect to have Michael Gallup ready by Week 1 as he rehabs from ACL surgery.
James Washington is expected to miss six to 10. Weeks with a foot fracture, leaving relatively unknown receivers Jalen Tolbert and Noah Brown next on the depth chart.
Of course, when it comes to Antonio Brown, it is hard to ever know when he is being serious or if he was just grab attention. On Wednesday he made headlines with a Twitter ran in which he went after Tom Brady and his personal trainers/business partner, Alex Guerrero.
Brown also previously said he does not intend to play in 2022.
Plus, the Cowboys typically always have drama surrounding the team, so adding Brown would just make it an outright circus.
