Are Texans Really Interested In Antonio Brown?September 26, 2020
But do the Texans also wish Brown to join the Texans?
That’s the suggestion via ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, who cites a source close to Brown indicating that the Texans “have shown the most interest” in signing the receiver, who is currently serving an eight-game suspension for his alleged involvement in numerous off-field incidents.
You will note, though, that the ESPN report is carefully-worded in a way that covers up holes in the story. To wit:
*ESPN says its source is “close to Brown.” That’s the sort of “source” with a likely agenda to stir up business for Brown. In short, it’s the sort of thing an agent would tell a reporter.
*There is no confirmation from Houston – outside of coach and general manager Bill O’Brien issue a very polite and generic response to questions about the report.
Said O’Brien on Friday morning: “We’re very satisfied with what we have here right now. Look, you never say never to anything. … So, right now, I don’t anticipate anything, whether it’s (Brown) or any other player right now.”
