Antonio Brown was found guilty of reckless driving by a Pittsburgh court Tuesday.

Brown was cited for going 100 mph back in November, and police mistook him for a bank robber. According to TMZ, the incredibly talented Steelers receiver will have to pay a $400 fine and other fees, and could appeal within the next 30 days.

Hey, look at this everybody. Antonio Brown is once again in the news, and it’s for nothing positive.

When is the last time we heard something good about the electric NFL star in the news? It’s been a long time. He skipped the last game of the season for the Steelers, is involved in a domestic dispute investigation, and has been publicly feuding with his own team.

None of those things bring him positive attention.

There have been reports that Brown has virtually no trade value, and I don’t know we’d struggle to believe that’s the case.

He’s nothing more than a massive distraction at this point. Is he talented? For sure, but at some point the people running the show just have to question whether or not he’s worth it.

At this current moment, I’d say he’s almost certainly not.

Stay tuned because I’m sure Brown will be back in the news soon. Hell, at this rate, he might be back in the news at the end of the day.

That dude really needs to get his stuff together.
