News broke last week that former NFL superstar Antonio Brown has filed for bankruptcy. This is despite Brown having made over $88 million in salary alone during his playing career. Brown had a very brief stint with the New England Patriots in 2019. His other NFL homes included the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders (offseason only), and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brown’s ability to perform on the football field was never a question. In 12 NFL seasons, he amassed 928 receptions for 12,291 yards and 83 receiving touchdowns. Brown made seven Pro Bowl teams and was named first-team All-Pro four times. Based on his football performance, Antonio Brown should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible in 2027.

However, Antonio Brown’s performance away from the field was not always impressive. His NFL career ended with him quitting on the sidelines and exiting the field during a game.

Brown has also had legal troubles. He has been charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor battery, domestic violence, and failure to pay child support on multiple occasions. Brown has been sued several times, though he has either settled out of court or failed to appear. He became the owner of the Albany Empire of the Arena Football League in 2023. Three months later, the AFL removed the franchise after they refused to pay fines or contribute to league operating costs.

The bankruptcy filing claims Antonio Brown owes $2.93 million to eight creditors. This includes a $1.2 million lawsuit reward to a truck driver who sued Brown for a 2020 assault. Brown, meanwhile, claims less than $50,000 in assets.
