What a week it has been for the New England Patriots – and it is only Tuesday! Following their big win against the Eagles in Philadelphia, they were criticized for their offense or lack of it.
Earlier today, former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski revealed his special announcement that he had been teasing for days. While Patriots fans hoped it was his return to the NFL, it was just Gronk revealing he is throwing a huge beach party for the 2020 Super Bowl.
Now, to add some more fuel to the fire, former Patriots receiver Antonio Brown has publicly apologized to New England owner Robert Kraft — via Twitter, of course!
Antonio Brown rumors
Antonio Brown evidently wants back on the Patriots. His public apology today to Mr. Kraft has Patriots fans buzzing on the internet with hopes that maybe, just maybe, the Patriots will give Brown one more chance. And that Brown won’t blow it!
Mr.Kraft I apologize sincerely to you and your organization! All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and the drama ! Thank you sincerely AB pic.twitter.com/oWJCwkrpjk

CBS Sports indicates that Brown claimed after his release that he still wanted to play for the Patriots, but it was widely reported that his comments about Robert Kraft had crossed the line.
For sure many speculated that there was no chance Brown would end up back in New England without making a public and meaningful apology to Kraft.
Well, Brown fired the first shot. An apology was sent. Now, will this land Brown his old job back? In this case, it just might, and here is why.
Patriots need Brown or a WR like him
The New England Patriots have plenty of great offensive players. Edelman, Sanu, Watson, and White are just a few. However, they don’t have that one big guy on the outside that can out battle a defensive back for a jump ball. That’s where Brown comes in.
Tom Brady made it no secret that he is still friends with AB. He even went on social media to like Brown’s apology to Kraft.
So could a reunion be in the works? Never say never. Kraft wants another ring, but at what price? Remember, Brown took personal shots at Kraft, so a reunion would take a lot more than taking to Twitter and typing something online.
If the Patriots did reunite with AB, and he played to his ability, they would be one tough team to beat this postseason.
