Antonio Brown goes off on Twitter: Translating his thoughts on the 49ers, XFL, Tom Brady and much more

Antonio Brown has been without an NFL team for more than a month now, but the former star wide receiver has stayed active on Twitter -- the same platform that often sparked headlines during his tumultuous run with three different teams in 2019.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported recently that Brown, who's still facing a sexual assault civil suit, has drawn renewed interest around the league despite being cut by both the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots in September. Until anyone brings him and his baggage onto a roster, however, Brown appears content sharing just about any opinion imaginable and in Tweet form.

Everything from Tom Brady to the XFL was on the table for AB on Friday morning, when he went off in a flurry of interactions with fans. Here, we've attempted to do our best to decipher all the most notable topics. Feel free to make your own judgments on some of the, er, less legible ones:
