Former Las Vegas Raiders receiver Antonio Brown took a subtle dig at former quarterback Derek Carr. He posted a photoshopped image of Carr on social media, making the quarterback look fat and called him "Derek Carb".
The Las Vegas Raiders faced off against the Denver Broncos in Week 11, and Brown, prior to the game, stated that he was betting $10,000 on the Raiders to win.
Fortunately for Antonio Brown, Derek Carr and the Raiders were able to defeat the Broncos and cash in on Brown's bet on Raiders ML. After the game, Carr tweeted this in response to Brown calling him "Derek Carb".
"We eating good tonight !"
Antonio Brown later praised Derek Carr and claimed he wasn't disrespecting the Las Vegas Raiders quarterback and was just being funny. He also stated that Carr is one of the hardest-working quarterbacks in the league. Here's what he said:
"I told you Derek Carb 10k, I’m being funny with image, Most hard working passionate Q, I’m going Sizzla"
The Raiders desperately needed this win and were able to outlast the Denver Broncos in overtime. Davante Adams and Derek Carr connected for a walk-off touchdown and poured more misery on Russell Wilson and the Broncos.
Antonio Brown praised another former quarterback
Antonio Brown not only praised Derek Carr on Twitter but also his former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Speaking about Big Ben, AB said this:
"One thing bout Big Ben he would give me a chance in double coverage. These Qs now going through to much progression."
Brown had a phenomenal career in the NFL and the majority of it was spent playing for the Steelers alongside Ben Roethlisberger. Both of them complemented each other's game and were able to have immense success.
'Big Ben' is likely to soon be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, while Brown also possesses a serious claim for the same. While some instances have tainted Brown's legacy on the field, apart from that, he has been a phenomenal player throughout his time in the league.
It isn't clear whether Brown will make his return to the league in the future, as he is now enjoying his time in the music industry. In his 12 seasons in the league, he had 928 catches for 12,291 yards and scored 88 touchdowns, along with 187 punt returns for 1,761 yards.
