Antonio Brown is still attempting to make his way back to the NFL after being released by the New England Patriots last September. According to TMZ Sports, the wide receiver has enlisted the help of a high school quarterback over the past few months. Brown has been working out with 17-year old Deerfield Beach High School (Fla.). QB Peter Zamora.
Zamora told TMZ that Brown still looks like an All-Pro at the position.
"He hasn't lost any gears," the high schooler said. "He's still fast as ever and he's still a top receiver in the league. I feel like a team should definitely sign him."
Zamora has been Brown's personal quarterback since March. He just happened to be working out on the same field that Brown and NFL stars such as Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, among others, were also at. The Deerfield Beach quarterback impressed the group and received an invitation to Brown's gym.
Fast forward a few weeks later and Zamora became Brown's personal quarterback. Zamora told TMZ Sports that he works out with Brown for multiple hours at a time and usually throws the former Pro Bowl wideout between 50 and 75 passes.
Zamora isn't being compensated for the workouts, but he admitted that colleges are starting to recruit him a bit more in the wake of his workouts with Brown. Brown's alma mater Central Michigan is even showing interest in Zampora.
Last March, the Steelers traded Brown to the Oakland Raiders after spending the first nine years of his NFL career in Pittsburgh. During that time, he registered 11,263 receiving yards and 75 touchdowns while also being a seven-time Pro Bowler.
The Raiders ended up releasing Brown in September after getting into an altercation with Raiders general manager Mike Mayock. Brown was signed by the Patriots shortly after being released, but only played one game with New England before again being released.
