It’s amazing that someone can be this out of touch with reality.
On Friday, the Patriots released WR Antonio Brown after he sent intimidating text messages to someone that accused him of sexual assault in a Sports Illustrated piece that was released earlier this week.
New tonight: Antonio Brown sent our source from Monday’s story menacing group text messages, including a picture of her children with instructions for his associates to investigate her.

Less than an hour after the news broke of Brown’s release, the controversial receiver ran a caption contest in his Instagram account:
Antonio Brown is running a CAPTION CONTEST on Instagram minutes after being released by the #Patriots.

Not only is this bad timing but given Brown’s reputation around the league right now, it might not be wise to start auctioning off memorabilia right now.
