AB for MVP, recruiting LeBron & special congrats

Posted Feb 1, 2018

Antonio Brown is in the MVP talk, and Steelers' players want to bring LeBron James to Pittsburgh.

AB for MVP: Antonio Brown is one of the players who is in the conversation for 2017 Associated Press Most Valuable Player and Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year.

Brown is aiming to be the first wide receiver in NFL history to win the MVP award, and there are plenty of people in his corner.

“Missing time and coming back and playing in that Jacksonville game. I don’t think I ever saw a wide receiver play the way he played coming back (from and injury) in that game. I was watching that game at home. As he was catching passes I got on my knees and said he is the best. He is the best. It’s incredible what this kid is doing. Incredible.”
-- Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin

“He should be in the conversation. It’s about time. There are a lot of different guys they are going to try and put in there. AB should be in there. He should win it. You have to put that guy in there.”
-- former All-Pro receiver Steve Smith Sr.

“He has been so consistent. This year, to miss two games and still lead the whole league in receiving yards, and we have aa lot of special receivers in this league. I have to go with Antonio Brown. Beyond the stats he helped his team win a lot of games this year with the catches he made. I am sticking with AB. It’s time to give the receivers a little love.”
-- former Pro Bowl fullback Michael Robinson and NFL Network analyst

Recruiting the King: The talk in NBA circles this week was about where Cleveland Cavs all everything LeBron James could end up next if he declines his option and becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Looks like JuJu Smith-Schuster has an idea.


His teammates also seem to be on board with the suggestion.

Speaking of hoops: Brown took in a little NBA action while in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII week.


This is special: Jordan Berry was signed to a one-year extension before he became a restricted free agent in mid-March. His special teams brother Chris Boswell is among those happy the deal is done.
