Central Michigan University
Brown attended Central Michigan University and played football there from 2007 to 2009.
Antonio Brown enrolled at Central Michigan in 2007 after wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni invited him to fly to Michigan and try out as a walk-on wide receiver. It was not difficult for him to transition from quarterback in high school to wide receiver in college, and after a few weeks, Central Michigan coaches offered him a scholarship. Brown struggled with adjusting to college life and staying on time for meetings and practices. Azzanni and his wife assisted him in settling in and establishing a routine, and he quickly became a member of their family. On September 1, he made his collegiate debut against Kansas. In the 52-7 loss, he had four receptions for 23 yards.

On November 23, he had 15 receptions for 174 yards in a 35-32 win over Akron. The Chippewas finished 8-5, won the MAC and advanced to a bowl game. In the 51-48 loss to Purdue in the 2007 Motor City Bowl, he had four receptions for 94 yards and a receiving touchdown.
Brown appeared in 14 games during his freshman season at Central Michigan. He performed well enough to earn Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year honours and All-Conference honours as a returner. He had 102 receptions for 1,003 yards and six touchdowns as a freshman. In 2007, he led the Mid-American Conference with 102 receptions.

He won the AFC Championship in 2010 and is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time First-Team All-Pro. Brown was named AFC Offensive Co-Player of the Year in 2014 and led the NFL in receiving yards.
In 2014 and 2015, he led the NFL in receptions and the AFC in receiving touchdowns. Brown is the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards returning and receiving in a single season, as well as the first player in NFL history to have at least five catches and 50 receiving yards in 35 consecutive games.

Former New England Patriots teammate Tom Brady, who had recently joined the Buccaneers, was instrumental in getting Antonio the job. Bruce Arians, the coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, previously coached Antonio in Pittsburgh. On February 7, 2021, the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl.
In the middle of the third quarter of Week 17 of the 2021 season, Antonio removed his jersey, shoulder pads, and shirt and ran off the field. He was eventually released by the club.

His career earnings could have easily surpassed $100 million without his various controversies.
Antonio Brown had several verbal tussles with the Oakland Raiders’ management in August and September 2019. On September 7, the Raiders announced the release of Brown and the cancellation of his $30 million signing bonus.

So, if he got hurt after just one game, he would have made a huge mistake.
