Antonio Brown has been through quite a bit over these past few months. From arrests to allegations, Brown has been trying to get things under control and start fresh. Over the past few weeks, Brown has been on an apology tour sorts and has been looking to make amends with everyone he has supposedly done wrong. He has also been working incredibly hard at his craft so that he can get back into a rhythm and maybe force his way back into the NFL.
Today, AB hopped on Twitter and posted a video himself at the gym. As you can see from the clip below, he is bench pressing 315 pounds. This was immediately after he benched 225 pounds for 15 reps. Brown claims he is stronger than he’s ever been in his life which is pretty impressive given the circumstances.
It remains to be seen what will become Brown’s career considering the NFL hasn’t wrapped up their investigation into the ual assault allegations against him. Brown has burnt a lot bridges although his talent is simply too much for some teams to ignore. With this in mind, he could be a part some interesting free agency discussions.

The Las Vegas Raiders are “prepared to fer” Tom Brady a two-year, $60 million contract, according to sportswriter Larry Fitzgerald Sr., as reported by Bleacher Report.
The $30 million yearly salary is a noteworthy aspect this rumor, as that is the figure that the New England Patriots were reportedly willing to fer Brady.
Adam Shefter ESPN has reported in the past that the Raiders are likely to pursue Brady. He cited head coach John Gruden’s recruiting capabilities, and the team’s formidable roster as reasons the six-time Super Bowl champion could choose Las Vegas.
Jay Glazer The Athletic explained how the Raiders could land Brady on January 10th:
“A lot people think that he’s going to go back to the Patriots and it would certainly fit but I think they have to pay him. If I’m a team like the Raiders or the Chargers and I need to fill up my stadium and my fanbase, I am absolutely, without a doubt, going to go and say, ‘Mr. Brady, here’s the fense. You tell us what the fense is. You help devise it and Mr. Brady, here’s our checkbook. You fill it out.’
“I know it’s going to be hard for Jon Gruden to do that but he’s the greatest quarterback in the history the NFL, the most marketable guy there is. He’s a gamechanger for a franchise. Season tickets. Marketing. I would open up my checkbook for him if I was a team like the Chargers or the Raiders, who are moving to Las Vegas, and especially if I want him to teach a young quarterback how to be a quarterback. I think it’s a no-brainer — you pay the man.”
Brady has played with the Patriots for the entirety his career. NFL free agency begins on March 13.
During the trade deadline, Andrew Wiggins was traded to the Golden State Warriors as the Minnesota Timberwolves got D’Angelo Russell in return. Fans were concerned about how Wiggins would fit in with the squad but so far, it seems like the coaches are loving his presence. It was assumed that Wiggins would be taking a more complementary role and so far, that’s exactly what’s happened. As some the coaches recently explained, Wiggins has been a perfect fit and they already feel like the team has improved.
“We’re having more fun,” a Warriors coach said according to Anthony Slater The Athletic. “The puzzle now fits.”

Meanwhile, head coach Steve Kerr echoed those sentiments noting just how much he loves working with Wiggins and how he fits their rotations a lot better.
“We’ve been able to plug him in on the opponent’s best player,” Kerr said. “That alone just allows us to set up our defense better. Because his size and length, you can put him on the opponent’s best guy and match up from there.”
For now, Wiggins will have to pick up the slack as both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are out with injuries. Once they come back, Wiggins will be able to assume that complementary role and completely rebrand his career.
Tom Brady is one the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game football and this fseason, he will be in unfamiliar territory. Brady will be a free agent for the first time in his career and has a big decision to make about his future. It’s clear he will be playing next season but no one knows where. Most fans think he’ll buckle down and come back to the Patriots while others think he’s simply going to move on and join a team in need a quarterback, like the Los Angeles Chargers.
Yesterday, Brady sparked some free agency rumors when he commented on Julian Edelman’s latest Instagram post saying “get back to the East coast so we can throw.” Clearly, Brady has a desire to workout with his favorite wide receiver who has helped him win three Super Bowls.
Of course, Brady’s comment was pretty harmless and can be interpreted in various different ways. As you can imagine, Patriots fans took this as an admission that Brady would be coming back to New England for at least another season. Free agency begins in March so we will only know what Brady is truly thinking, in about a month from now.

Cam Newton was considered to be one the best quarterbacks in the NFL, just a few years ago. Unfortunately, injuries have hurt Newton’s career and his team has been struggling to reach the postseason.

This fseason, newton is trying to get back into the best shape imaginable and he has been making strides in the gym.
In his latest Instagram post, Newton quoted J. Cole while talking about his haters. Newton is taking a motivational approach here and it’s clear that he’s working very hard to be at peak physical condition. In fact, Newton went on to say that he plans to make 2020 one the best years ever.
“Killas been countin me out, I’m countin my bullets, I’m loading my clips, I’m writing down names, i’m makin a list, I’, checkin it twice and I’m gettin em hit,” Newton wrote, quoting J. Cole. “Dear 2020, I want everything 2019 tried to take from me.”
It remains to be seen if Newton stays with the Panthers next season although he’s been adamant about returning to the franchise that drafted him. Hopefully, Newton can get over these injury issues and get back to being the quarterback we know him to be.

While Jones won with a unanimous decision from the judges, his victory was anything but easy: “He landed some hard hits. The fans like it when they see me get hit — it doesn’t happen very ten,” Jones said, according to ESPN. “But at the same time, I landed some takedowns. I got his back on more than one occasion. … A hard-earned victory but a victory.”
This was the first fight Jones’s career in which he was outstruck. Final tallies mark Reyes at 116 significant strikes and Jones at 104. Despite the battle, Jones continues his record 18 fight undefeated streak in the UFC.
Dana White is hoping for a rematch. “Dominick Reyes would have knocked 100 percent the people he fought out with the shots he hit Jones with tonight,” he said.
Reyes told reporters that he feels disrespected by the scoring: “I do feel disrespected. I know I won that fight. … I made Jon Jones look like just a man. I brought the fight to him.”
“That’s the way to make American history right there: hard-fought,” Jones said. “It wasn’t the most impressive victory, but nothing, absolutely nothing, that has never been done before is easy. It is never easy. I left it all out there, showed the heart a champion in the fifth round, and it’s so sweet.
“Dominick did a tremendous job. Dominick, you have totally earned my respect, man.”
In 2015, Australian director George Miller delivered the most ambitious film his career, the sun-drenched apocalyptic bloodbath that is Mad Max: Fury Road. The film was an instant critical success, securing ten Academy Award nominations and taking home six wins. At the time, Miller was open about his desire to continue the saga, teasing future stories involving both Tom Hardy’s Max and Charlize Theron’s Furiosa. It appears that Miller’s vision will manifest once more, as The Daily Mail has confirmed another Mad Max film has been ficially greenlit.

Though little plot details are known save for a working title — Mad Max: The Wasteland — the upcoming flick is set to begin production this autumn in Australia. As now, neither Tom Hardy nor Theron has committed to reprising their roles, though we can hope they can swing a return. Given how much fun both actors appeared to have during the making- Fury Road, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them making the scheduling work to the best their ability.
Keep an eye out for details on The Wasteland to surface. There are many who deem Fury Road to be a modern classic and expectations for a follow-up will be high. In Miller we trust.
Heading into this fseason, New England Patriots legend Tom Brady will be in a position he’s never truly felt before.

There have been various rumors that Brady doesn’t want to come back and is looking elsewhere. Meanwhile, some sources say both sides are doing everything possible to reunite for next season. During an appearance on WEEI, Tom Curran NBC Sports said it wouldn’t be hard for Belichick to say goodbye if he has to.
“At a price, yeah. From all I’ve gathered, he would prefer to have Tom playing QB in 2020…if it comes to a crossroads, Belichick] can easily get his mind around saying goodbye to Brady] as well,” Curran said.
It’s almost impossible to imagine Brady on any team other than the Patriots so it will be interesting to see how the free agent period plays out. In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned for updates as we will be sure to bring them to you.
